    Posted: 28 Sep 2020 at 8:05pm
Hello all,

New to the forum, and am considering upgrading my phono stage from a MoFi StudioPhono to a Reflex M.  Does anyone who has heard both of these have an opinion as to whether this would be a worthwhile upgrade?

My system includes a MoFi StudioDeck TT with a Grado Gold3 cartridge, a Concept 6.5 receiver, and Zu Audio Omen DW Mk II speakers.  I really like the Grado Gold3's very musical sound, and intend to stick with high output Grado carts for the foreseeable future.  I also might be trying a low-watt SET tube amp in the near future.

Thanks in advance,
Dan

Hi Dan,
   Fortunately you don’t need to take anyone’s word! Jump onto the loan scheme and have a Reflex M in your home for two weeks, for the price of postage. The Reflex M is excellent and has been for a very long time.
All the best,
Mick

Mick,

Thanks, I took your advice and will listen with my own ears. A loaner Reflex M is on its way and should be here in a day or two, looking forward to the trial!

Hi Dan,

I hope the loaner program goes well for you.

FWIW, I had a Mofi SP for awhile and sold it after getting the Reflex M. I also did the loaner program. There were things I liked about the SP but ultimately the Reflex won out. 
Reflex M + PSU-1 used with AT VM95ML, Stanton 680mkII + Ogura, and Shure M35X cartridges.

Thanks, I hope so too. The loaner arrives today and I will do some listening this weekend. Thanks also for your detailed review of the Reflex at Hoffman, it helped point me in this direction.
