Mr Holger was very helpful with emails and phone calls concerning any questions I had, very much recommend his product and services. Next on my list is an Aretha, without the phono pre of course, in matching wood. I went with this set up because I didn't see any reason to be powering the phono section of an Aretha when using other sources of inputs.
