FWIW with 50+ year old musician's ears I tested the Enigma PSU1 with a variety of GSP phono stages and didn't hear a clear difference on the MM stages. But I did on the EXP and on the AccMC.

In all cases I was only running that piece of equipment off its own PSU1/Enigma. I couldn't do a blind ABX test on my own but did play several tracks or a whole side to get an overall feel for the music with each setup. I also did some needledrops which I still have and think the MM ones are similar with either PSU1 whereas the MC is clearer, better guitars, percussion, strings and more dynamic IMO with the Enigma. With respect to others' opinions and Graham's expertise I think the big step forward in the AccMC is the MC to MM boost stage which Graham has written about and the Enigma PSU1 is a step up from that. Put together they have the real sound of the EXP/AccMM I also own and overcome the technical issues (interference) of a small moving coil signal boosted up by over1000x.

Technical stuff aside I have more fun listening to records on MC now.
