I don't know about the MF but I would think the Rega is better, from what I remember.

I guess that if you take the Arkless then whether you decide to take a hands on or hands off approach, there will always be certain people on another forum that will cry foul, either through 'tampering' or 'NVA fanboy' bias.

I do think there are enough people however (on all sides) who would be genuinely interested in a comparison and I would trust all on here to give an honest opinion and feedback so I think you should go for it.

From my point of view, I have budget turntable (Denon DP-300) with on board phono stage and Ortofon 2M red so a new phono stage is definitely on the cards next year. I have obviously considered the Phono 1 but have not heard either unit so if you need me to provide an opinion at some stage down the line I'm in.

I'm up for comparing the arkless to my phono1 and naim stageline.

I think it is a good idea to take this unit in exchange doc. But have it go straight to classicrock and then do the rounds.

An AoSer is selling their Arkless miracle. Sold in less than 12 hours.
Why was it being disposed of?

That one has a proper power supply - thought Arkless didn't think they made a difference?
