An extremely flexible phono stage able to compliment virtually any cartridge. The M1 ViNL offers an extraordinary menu of loading options for users of both moving-magnet (MM) and moving-coil (MC) cartridges, meaning you can find the perfect set up for your system. Switchable RIAA and IEC EQs add further flexibility. The M1 ViNL even allows you to switch resistance, capacitance or equalisation curve while you're playing records – so you can instantly hear the effect of each mode and more easily find the optimum settings for different cartridges and discs. A clear display and intuitive controls make the process simpler still. The M1 VINL is engineered to deliver a level of performance and versatility that an integrated amplifier's phono stage – and indeed many dedicated rivals – can only dream of.
It’s had about 150 hours of use. I can’t see any scratches, smudges or other cosmetic issues. I have the manual, but I do not have the original box so I rate it an 8.
