    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a decent MM phono stage. Ideally well under £100, but will consider things a little above that if they're totes amazing.

    As I'm using this with an Audio Technica AT440Mlb cart, it'd be ideal if the stage was capable of getting close to a 32k loading rather than the standard 47k – I hear this can tame the brightness of the AT440 nicely.

    Open to any and all offers however.

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Hi mate,
    I've got a Musical Fidelity XLPS which isn't being used ; if that might be of interest I'll do a bit of research and come up with a price.

    Hi,
    the XLPS is the second and last version of the cylinder shape, if I remember correctly the V3 was in a more standard rectangular case ; my one was bought new in about 2002.

    Ah, gotcha. Cheers for that, Stu.

    Going by the eBay completed items pricing it looks like it'll be pushing up and over my max budget, but please do throw a price my way and I'll stick it onto the list alongside the Rega and whatever else turns up...:thumbsup:

    Hi,
    I've just done the same and to be honest I'd rather see it in use than be greedy about it. I haven't got the box so how does £85 delivered sound?

    Go for it, Simon - I'm going to hold off and see what pops up on the lower end of my budget.

    And that's very very kind of you, Stu. Do you mind if I mull it over for a little while?
