Hi Graham WELCOME
Are you asking how to connect the phono amp to your Naim amp if so can you be more pacific ( Exact) on which amp you have please. As for GS interconnects they are Vary good from what I have read about them on this forum and others, I just wish I had the budget for them.

Hi Graham and welcome to the forum.
I'm not familiar with the Stageline phono, but looking at all the available information I would think the the Reflex M would better it, the Accession most certainly will. A particular feature of Graham's phono designs is the apparent reduction in surface noise, pops and clicks. I say apparent because it's really other phonos that exaggerate the surface noise, pops and clicks. Graham has explained the phenomenon quite a few times, one is here:
The easiest way to find out whether you think it's better is to use the loan scheme and try at home with your own system. John C currently runs the UK loan scheme, he'll also be able to advise on suitable interconnects for you N**m amplifier. Loan Scheme link:https://www.hifisystemcomponents.com/forum/uk-loaner-program-back_topic4784.html 
Either contact John via Private Message (PM click on the drop down menu arrow just to the right of his name) or perhaps easier, so that you can explain what you want, just phone him on the number found at the bottom of any forum page.
Happy Listening
Ian
Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.

Hi Graham
That's OK I was just checking.
I agree with BackinBlack try the loan scheme. 
As for surface noise, AS I have said before many times THAT was one of the 1st thing I notice when I got my 1st GS phono amp.
which one to go for then, If your budget can stretch to the Accession then that's the one to go for IMO.

Welcome. Definitely give the loan program a try. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the enjoyment you get out of a GS phono preamp. 
Reflex M + PSU-1 used with AT VM95ML, Stanton 680mkII + Ogura, and Shure M35X cartridges.
