Well, I searched the web for a week before buying. I could not find ANY negative comments at all. Seems to be very highly regarded. I'll pull the lid soon.

Maybe one of our members from the great white North is familiar with the brand.

One sort of cool tid bit. When these were sold new, they came with a variety of resistors & a bit of silver solder. There is a Gold socket inside & you can tune your moving coil cartridge by changing out resistors. Then solder if you choose.

Just under $600.00 shipped. There is another on ebay now for $800.00. It does not have the phase switch.But it does have balanced inputs. Mine only has balanced out.
I did find PDF manual downloads.
