    Default Phono Stage Revisited

    Hi Everyone

    Just an update,

    Thank you All for the comments on getting my Phono stage,
    I did quite a bit of research and tried quite a few (Cambridge Audio 651, Emotiva, Rega Phono Mk2) wasnt happy with any of them,
    I then managed to listen to a Schiit Mani in a store in Southampton whilst visiting family and asked if i could have a home loan-he said ok
    Have since bought my very own Mani which will also give me the option to get an MC Cart in the future...
    I guess it proves help and info and advice go a long way but there's no substitute for getting out there and trying the product.

    Thank you all for all the comments info and advice!!!!!

    Forgot to mention ( It hammers the Rega Brio 2017 phono stage )

    Great you got sorted. The Schiit Mani is a great phono stage and hard to beat at the price.

    Interesting that you are finding the mani superior to the rega brio r 2017 phonostage. I think the brio phono stage is great and had stopped using my mani, think it might be time to give it another listen.

    Make sure you s just the switches on the bottom until it suits your cartridge. Worth experimenting. Great piece of kit. Who gives a Schiit what they call it for that price and it sounds so good?

    Certain I've got it at the right settings. I really enjoy the mani, I just didn't find it significantly superior to the brio. Will definitely have another listen.
