  • Schiit mani B-stock is $99 + shipping Very versatile but also easy peasy. http://www.schiit.com/b-stocks Art DJ Pre II is ~ $50. It’s actually a nice unit but the bright blue LED on the front is ridiculous and cannot be turned off (unless y…
  • I remember listening to these albums when I was just a kid...

  • The Schiit Mani is a solid option and it is very reasonably priced with a lot of great reviews behind it. Very flexible too as it can accommodate a wide variety of Mm and MC carts. http://www.schiit.com/products/mani
