Greetings.
Took delivery of my 2 month old Solo on Saturday morning so not fully warmed up yet but it seems to be getting better each listen. Trouble is I now desperately need to swap the Cambridge Audio phono stage for a Reflex.
Very impressed so far and I’m hearing things my previous headphone amp hid away (Schiit Vali 2).

Thanks for joining us Simon. The Solo is a fine piece of Hifi and will get better the long you leave it powered up if mine is anything to go by. I had a CA 640P which improved after well intended component swaps but the Graham Slee Genera was much better and the Reflex M was like having a new record collection.

I think I've got a 640p kicking around somewhere as well. 

My rational behind the phono amp is currently buy the reflex with the standard psu then I've room for improvement, my other option would be the Era with Psu1 but then I'll spend my time regretting not getting the Reflex.

I can't justify the Accession...or can I?

I agree with Mick, my Accession MC is delightful.

Ok, Accession would push back my purchase a month (that would be the justification in my head) but I'd not end up with regrets.

Like my old man used to say "always buy the best you can afford", he said other things but they were a bit rubbish and some also offensive.

Another question, is it worth spending 1k on a MM phono stage (I'm only using an Ortofon 2m blue) or biting the MC bullet?
