I'm glad no one here suggested the Zesto Andros 1.2 phono that I bought last week on Audiogon. Wouldn't have wanted to bid against any of you guys.

The Zesto is miles above the Sutherland I had previously. Now I just need to figure out what 12AX7 tubes to roll into the Zesto. I'm looking at Fisher Mullards but I feel like a kid who just walked into a candy store for the first time.

it's beautiful...congrats. A lot went into preparing the stock tubes just as Manley does. You might find them excellent sounding since they are matched and burned in for top performance.

Thank for all the suggestions and I have a lot to think about. Right now i am leaning towards giving the chinook a go. However I have decided to let my new cartridge fully "burn in" and I am trying various phono cables to see what i like. I will then enjoy my set up for a while before I tinker again. Sometimes my enthusiasm gets the best of me....
