Other Notes: "The JLTi phono stage is a very good phono stage that is comparable to phono stages costing twice as much or more. It sounds more like a tube phono stage than a solid state phono stage. However, it has the excellent bass slam and the lower noise floor of solid state phono stages. If you play mostly rock and roll or other music where 3-D imaging of the individual instruments is not important, then buying the JLTi is a no-brainer. This is true, of course, unless you are able to spend major bucks on a unit costing over three times the price of the JLTi. If, on the other hand, you listen to classical, jazz or small ensembles, then 3-D imaging is probably important to you. In which case the JLTi will be just a way-station until you can afford that much more expensive phono stage. The JLTi phono stage performs far above its price point. I highly recommend a listen if you are in the market for a phono stage." = Roger Gordon
