- GSP Elevator EXP c/w PSU1 power supply (MC step up)
The Elevator EXP Pre Preamplifier preamplifies the signal from a conventional output moving coil phono cartridge to moving magnet cartridge sensitivity. The signal is then fed to a moving magnet phono stage as pictured right.
It's better than a step up transformer because noise cannot be induced into it, and it's far more linear making for a better bass response.
It's the electronic equivalent of a moving coil step up transformer, or as moving coil enthusiasts abbreviate it:SUT. However, a step up transformer easily picks up hum and electrical disturbances — it also consumes some of the delicate signal current to magnetize its core. What's so bad about that? Read on.£640.00
- Puresound P10 MM Phono StageThis Phono stage is the best we have heard at this price point and betters highly regarded phono stages in excess of £3000. Sound is exceptionally good tonally with complete freedom from grain and any hint of harshness. Fluid and beguiling with great texture on instruments and timbral insight - Dynamic, yet detailed, this phono stage is the whole package and is a delight to recommend. This is all you need for Moving Magnet (MM) and high output moving coil cartridges.For Low output moving coils, the best option is to add the high quality GSP Audio (Graham Slee) Elevator active step up.

- Amazon Audio B Labs Phono Stage
We were initially skeptical of the Amazon Audio B Labs – after all, it’s virtually unheard of so we carried out careful evaluation in a variety of systems. The verdict was that we had to acquire this fantastic piece of kit because it does so much for the sound – highly involving, organic with a beautiful integrated presentation. It’s hard to characterise the sound because it’s essentially right – yes it has fabulous low-end power, depth, definition and slam but subtle timbrel shading, exquisite vocals and top end transients are also outstanding. A few pointers to the quality of this almost underground product is that Les of Walrus Hi-Fi rated it as a very high value product. Secondly, a “no advertising” piece in a German magazine (renowned for their honest and sometimes scathing reviews) used it as their reference amplifier for many years. Lastly, the UK importer stated that after he replaced a 21K phono stage with the B-lab Amazon, the difference was not that great which points to exceptional value.£4,975.00
