i currently have the musical fidelity V-LPS 2 phono preamp for my music hall mmf 2.2 turntable. i wasn't really looking to upgrade the phono pre-amp for my system, but i ran across the emotiva XPS-1 phono pre-amp on emotiva's website and it looks attractive. it only costs $149 and the specs at first glance seem to be a lil better than the musical fidelity's. was wondering if anyone has heard both of these and which one they like better. i noticed the signal to noise ratio on the emo is >96 db and that of the musical fidelity is >80 db (both for MM). also the THD on the emo for MM is <0.0075% @1khz and <0.02% @20hz-20khz, while the THD of the musical fidelity for MM is just listed as <0.01%. thanks in advance, john.
