A few year old but I believe it is an excellent MM and MC phono stage. Easily adjustably with the dip switches inside. Top screws are finger tight and come off easily too, https://6moons.com/audioreviews/asr/phono.html Paypal 3%
This link is to a comprehensive review that is quite positive. The ending paragraph speaks of this being the best "inexpensive" phono stage available. That to do better you would have to pay double-$4K. Certainly, at this sale price, it is a steal. The reviewer also speaks of the Mini Basis being 80% the performance of the top line Basis at $8K. I enjoyed this a lot and am only selling because I got an Audible Illusions full function preamp. I believe a owner's manual can be found online. The ASR Mini Basis Phono preamp has the following features :The case is made from high-quality, lightly transparent acrylic glassHighly efficient, shielded 72 VAPM (Philbert Mantelschnitt) transformerHigh-quality magnetic sheet metal with a low magnetic field gives good dynamic. Ultra fast Schottky-Rectifier, buffer 200,000 uF with Philips switch mode Elkos.

The sound picture is very precise and has a good three-dimensionality with a very high dissolution of details.Also available as “Mini Basis Exclusive”with AD843SQ and Magic Cord!Dimensions : 268 mm B x 350 mm D x 110 mm H, weight approx. 5kgAvailable with engravement insilveror gold.
