TT is Pro-ject Carbon EVO 10.
Icon Audio PS1.2 MC with NOS Telefunken tubes - sounds great with the Tele tubes and Hana ML series cart @ 200 ohm load. With the NOS Tele tubes (not new anymore) running $400 - $500 each now I thought I'd try a Hagerman Trumpet MC. It's still burning in but starting to blossom. I upgraded the power supply with SBooster and installed gold lion gold pin tubes. The goal is to get this phono stage sounding as good or better than the icon audio/Telefunken combo and it's almost there. I'm not sure why the IA/Tele/Hanna ML combo sounds so good but it does. As we know...it's all about getting the right match of components that work well with each other and I just got lucky with that combo. Another highly knowledgeable friend of mine recommended the Trumpet MC. He's had his a while now and loves it. It comes highly regarded as probably the best value in a phono stage right now.
