Small form factor, SS phono preamp recommendation.
Another vote for the AD-50 card from Accuphase. Have one in my E-470 integrated. Prefer the AD-50 over some standalone units I’ve auditioned: Gold note PH-10, PS Audio Stellar Phono, Wyred4Sound PH-1, and Parasound JC3+ Accuphase + Accuphase syn...

Turntable advice
Technics 1200GR.  Build quality is superb, and adjustments can’t get any easier.  $1700  
Best Smaller Bookshelf Speakers For Use Exclusively With Ambient Music?
Original KEF LS50s.  Beautiful detail and midrange.  Can be found used for under $1k.  Hard to beat!

Recommended integrated amplifier for upgrade

Which Integrated with Magico A3
I drive my Magico A1s with an Accuphase E470 & it’s complete bliss. The E470 is class A/B though, so it doesn’t break a sweat handling the A1s with 200+ watts into 4ohms. The newer version of my integrated is the E480 or Accuphase also has t... 
HiFi Rose RS250
I've had the RS150B for a few months now, and absolutely love it.  I'm using it's internal DAC feeding my Accuphase integrated.  Roon via ethernet.  I also have my Leak transport feeding the RS150B.  Not the best DAC I've owned, but sound quality...

  The music video, although quite dated, is equally good/haunting.  Enjoy, I think..

HiFi Rose RS150B Bought it for the gorgeous touchscreen/display, but turns out it’s a fantastic sounding DAC/streamer. Icing on the cake. Bob
