I recently took ownership of a 252 to upgrade my 282. I have been using an Adikt for quite a few years and it has served me well on my LP-12. I have been reading some good reviews of the Krystal and for the price seems to be a good move up for me. I've sourced a prefix k and a stageline s but am not sure which to move on. i will also have a hi-cap dr to power either, but in reading these boards, quite a few people prefer to have their phono stage just powered off the 252. Good thing is i can always demo both setups in the house and decide, but looking for some opinions on here.
