My little Pro-Ject phono stage hasn't arrived yet and already, I am about to say "go" on something new: the P75 mk4 from Dynavector. I'm thinking of running one with a @Gieseler Audio LPS.

Anyone have a mk4 and care to comment?

I have the mk4 and I am very happy with it. Using a Dynavector 20x2L cartridge with it. Should you buy the mk4 do read and understand the instructions and have a good look at the circuit board and find all the positions before you start setting the jumpers. It's not hard but it does help.

As for the sound all I can say is that it puts up a pretty good performance against another set up that I use most of the time.

Also Jonathan of J D Audio is very helpful should you have any questions.

Thanks Vinylear.

This morning I ordered a mk4 and I plan on looking at a 20X2 or Hana SL cart shortly. For the money and considering all that's been said about it, I don't think I can go wrong.

The internal adjustments don't phase me.

 

Cheers,

Steve

@Winno, just wondering if the mk4 arrived and what your thoughts are?

Hi. 
Yes, it arrived very promptly after ordering and it was dead easy to set up for my Rega MM cart. Although not having anything to compare it to, I can say it is a very nice phono stage and I certainly don’t feel it leaves anything wanting. It seems to work very well indeed with my Rega/Cyrus/Martin Logan combination.

I also recently upgraded from an Elys 40 MM to an Ania Pro MC and the DV allowed significant improvements everywhere to show through without any trouble at all. 
 

would I keep this longer term?

Yes, easily. 
Although, if I can find a Phono X by Cyrus (the previous phono stage they made), I’ll certainly compare the two. The PE mode in the DV is pretty special though and I’m enjoying a wonderfully expansive, transparent and musical presentation currently.

It seems that Cyrus have a new phono stage out now. 👍

Yep, since the Phono X, the Phono Signature was released. It supposed to be an absolute banger of a phono stage too. One, along with matching PSX-R2 recently sold in the classifieds for $2000 which was a pretty hot deal (basically getting a $1400 power supply for nix). 
 

The absolute latest gear is the XR range which is not cheap. Would be nice to look at the new pre with integrated phono stages but I’m still loving my classic series DAC XP+.
