    It's probably that like me, nobody who has posted so far has tried those you mention.

    I do rate Graham Slee phono stages though, having used the ERA Gold V and Reflex M. Both very nice when used with the PSU 1 linear power supply, but they are possibly priced rather above your budget.

    My current phono stage is a GSP Reflex M, and before I got that I ran a GramAmp 2SE. The GramAmp 2SE gave me faultless service for something like 14 years, and it continues to give faultless service in a friend's system.
    I've never heard anything that comprehensively wipes the floor either phono stage, and I get to hear some pretty high faluting stuff on a fairly regular basis.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    As Geoff has said, the other phono stages mentioned are ones I haven't heard either.

    I tried the Slee upto the Gold version, and are good value for money. But i ended up with a Vincent Pho-8, this is a great value stage and comes with separate PSU which is rare at this price point of 280. They do a home demo service if you require.

    You're best going with a home demo to make sure it fits with your system to be honest, or Amazon returns! I went through about 6 different stages before deciding. Kryi at Vincent is very helpful and will give you some good advice with no sales pressure, likewise on the Slee forum.

    [I've been using a Music Fidelity V-LPS ll for some time and made comparisons with quite a few more expensive amps including the graham slee range. I generally could not tell the difference.

    They can be picked up second hand at less than 100. A great bit of kit to get you going. As with all things hifi, matching is important, so no point going over board on expensive stuff if not matched to the cartridge etc.
