    I read an article where an audio club was going to listen to a couple phono stages and had two sets of amps. They listened to the least expensive amps first, sound was good. So they switched to the more expensive and capable amps but the sound...

    If you have a 60 day return I don't see how you can lose with a listen. Out of what you have listed the Harbeth would be my choice.

    I may be the minority but I would for sure. It's like the $20.00 beer at the ball park, either you buy it or not. Someone might call the pricing a rep off but I don't consider it a rip off as long as there is still a choice to buy it or not.
