AVID Pellar, Pulsus, Pellere, and Pulsare II Phono Stages premium
AVID is widely known for producing superb turntables. What's probably less well-known is that they also produce a range of phono stages. The technology and engineering involved in the turntable motor power supplies are right at the basis of their phono stages.

AVID Ingenium, Diva II SP, and Sequel premium
In this review, I will dive very deeply into all the aspects of three Avid Turntables, how they compare to one another, how they interact with different tonearms and cartridges, and where exactly each model excels. Be prepared - this has resulted in a very long article, even by my standards, but there's a summary for those who want to jump straight to the conclusion.

Aidas Gala Gold LE MC Cartridge premium
Highly-sophisticated, super-silent, velvety-smooth and extremely refined, the Gala Gold LE is the most revealing cartridge that I have heard so far. It's rare to hear a cartridge so very precise, so linear and so highly resolving yet with an absolute absence of dryness and with seemingly eternal decays.

Origin Live Calypso mk4 with Multi-Layer Platter, Illustrious arm and Silver Hybrid cable premium
The Origin Live Calypso Mk4 with Illustrious tonearm keeps you at the tip of your seat in anticipation of what the next record will uncover but even though it is so very capable of unveiling microscopic details, it is, most of all, a music machine.

CH Precision P1 Phono Preamp premium
Unlike many alternatives, the P1 refrains from imposing any character and it just lets the music speak for itself. But it does not only offer brilliant performance, it is also also the most flexible phono stage that I know to exist. Multiple inputs? Over 500 loading values? Tablet-control? Auto-calibration? Check, check, check, and check.
