Hi, Anyone ever try a Doshi phono stage with a Allaerts MC2 Finish? It is spec'd at .2mv output...but maybe a bit less, 32 ohm internal impedance and seems to like a 845 ohm loading...

I've used an Ikeda with 0.15 mV output. You may find the JA likes a little different loading with the Doshi but Nick can always customize the loading values for each owner.

Hi Myles, you had a few brief comments, on the Doshi phono vs others like the Allnic H3000 in your positive feedback review. Anything more to add? Curious now that you've had this phono stage for a longer period of time (just making a assumption here) anything else to say that you didn't say in the review? Did you try the EAT tubes without the dampers?

I will likely add the Koda Takumi K10 preamp to my system. It is a low gain design...+6db (and so very quiet) so if I also use a low gain cartridge like the Allaerts MC 2 finish at sub .2mv...the phono stage really has to be quiet with enough gain...
