Moving from phono boards to a cheap phono (MC) amp
Posted by: Kevin-W on 10 January 2019
In my NAC 72 I have MC boards (323s of some sort I think - I need to have a look), feeding a Linn Klyde cart. At some stage later this year I mean to move to a Krystal.
My question is, should I get an external phono stage? I'm guessing that most will offer an improvement on the boards - but at what price point? If, say, I've only got £150-£200 to spend, will that offer an audible improvement over what I've got? Or should I just stick with the status quo for now and wait until I can spend a bit more (maybe on a Stageline or secondhand Linto)?
