I have owned the big ASR Emitter II amplifier with its three power supplies, including batteries for the preamplfier section, and have listened to the ASR phono unit with the battery power supply. It is an excellent phono unit and as the ASR amplifier, represents good value for money, particularly in Europe. How it matches your system and preferences is a different matter.
I currently jump between three phono sections - an Adyton discrete solid state unit with separate power supply and mechanically decoupled amplifying devices , the Audio Research REF2 phono and the phono section of the Atmasphere MP1. The preference is most of the time due to the system I am listening - e.g. the ARC REF2 phono sounds fabulous and impossible to beat with the ARC REF40.
If buying on the used market remember that ASR products are in constant evolution and are being sold for more than two decades without designation changes and current units are quite different from the old units found at very cheap prices. As Marty refers Friedrich Schaefer is a very friendly person, that will promptly answer any mail or inquire about his units - he recently answered my questions about a precise Emitter and send me a link to his buying guide to used ASR equipment. http://asraudio.de/Epdf/IEEMUsed.pdf
Just for audiophile culture I would love to know about the pairing of a Lampizator GG with an ASR Emitter II exclusive ...
I reckon you are onto something with that pairing. I also like the Emitter II - whacking great soundstage should be mind bending with the GG one - must be crazy. Mind you, you'll need a mahoosive rack for the Emitter and GG, lol.
