Lehmann Decade as I sold my Shelter LOMC cartridge and don’t need the extra
gain the Lehmann is capable of.

preamp! Stereophile Class A rated and

Excerpt from Absolute Sound
"When Lehmann Audio brings an "A"
list phonostage like the Decade to the LP listening experience, the results
explain the staying power of the analog medium. And the Decade does so without
fanfare or a "watch this" level of fireworks. The Decade is also highly
configurable, which should make the vast majority of cartridges feel welcome.
Paired with its robust outboard PWX II power supply, the Decade offers a very
low noise floor, quiet backgrounds, and big dynamics. But its overriding claim
to fame is its uncanny sense of balance and musicality. It's highly articulate
and responsive on top, and has the ability to place images just so on its
expansive soundstage. Like its original Black Cube of years ago, Lehamm Audio's
Decade reminds us all over again just how musically rewarding it is to be a
devotee of vinyl playback." -
