Project has a phono stage called the Phono Box II USB which sells for $179. I haven't heard this exact unit but their standard Phono Box II is very nice for the price. Here's the link http://www.sumikoaudio.net/project/products/phonobox_2_usb.htm

thanks for the info. is it going to matter to me that this unit is a 16 bit delta sigma A/D converter ?
the reason i asked about the slim devices transporter is that i might get one soon ?

The Transporter is a DAC. Digital inputs only.
