    Hello there,

    Many thanks.

    Sorry don't have one to offer (any more) but I have extensively tried both the ones you list and the Edwards blows the Rega away, so I would concentrate your search on one of them if SQ is the ultimate goal (of course it is!).

    How about the Tisbury phono, there have been good reports and you can return it within 14 days if not happy with it?

    It is easier to seek forgiveness than to ask permission

    Tisbury is £150 vs the £95 of the Rega Mini/Edwards Audio Apprentice, and I need it just for a second system.

    Furthermore Rega is much more popular and easy to find second hand.

    I had a good experience in the past with Angle Audio.

    Hi Geoff, thank you for your offer, but I was thinking about something cheaper...

    It is for my fourth deck, an old Pioneer PL112D.

    You don't say if MM or MC use, but if you can find one a Cambridge Audio Azur 540P or 640P would be a good choice, usually around £100.

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes


    Pro-Ject Signature 10 TT & arm, Benz Micro LP-S & Michel Cusis MC cartridge, Furutech AG-12-R4 High Performance Phono Cable, LFD MMC special phono stage, Rothwell MCX SUT, RaspberryPi/HifiBerry Digi to Beresford Caiman SEG DAC, Sony 3d blu-Ray for CDs to Caiman SEG, ALLNIC T1500 MKII SET 300B amp, Tannoy Legacy Arden speakers and JBL L100 Century's , Chord Epic speaker leads, & signature links, the Eccose Conductor CA1 cd to pre, I think I am at audio nirvana, but donít tell anyone
