I'll post measurements over the weekend, but will start with subjective impressions and usability notes. In a nutshell, if I had an entry-level phono setup, I would immediately buy this over anything else on the market for less than $800, heck make that $1500 even. The fact is, the vinyl-nutjob world has been dominated by the www.orfas.org for far too long. Basically, anything below $1500-$2000 for a phonostage from well established brands will be a severely nerfed product. I like what Schiit has done with the Mani, but let's face it, the OG Mani wasn't well regarded. The second version was incrementally better, but it was more like, just buy this because there really isn't anything better unless you spend more or don't want to DIY your own power supply for the TC-750. With the ZEN Phono, the "nothing better until we spend much more" argument is still valid, but there's also buy this because it's actually very very good. To be honest, the $149 price is absolutely shocking. With iFi, I would expect $399. But heck, let's see iFi bring it on for the masses. I hope iFi sells thousands and thousands of these. I didn't bring out any of my major testbeds. We just swapped the TV and audio rooms, so things are still a mess. I still need to wire up the audio stuff back together. The VPI TNT 3 is gathering dust in the garage right now until I set up that room again (if it wasn't 101F degrees outside). Besides, a budget table would be more likely the use case for something like this. The Schiit Sol table, although a PIA because it's so finicky, meets the requirements. Having two arms, one with an MM and another with an MC cart will also give us a fuller picture of the ZEN Phono's capabilities. Somehow I had originally thought that the ZEN Phono was MM only. MC carts are supported too. Here is the back of the ZEN Phono. Pretty straightforward, a ground lug, RCA inputs, outputs, a four position switch (MM and x3 MC at different gains), and get this, a balanced output? WTH? Balanced output for $149. That's insane. The downside of course is the requirement to have a 4.4mm TRRRRS to dual XLR adapter. Fortunately, I was able to snag one from Amazon for $30. Looks like these are becoming more and more available now. I usually expect iFi to provide a plethora of cables and sundry accessories, but hey for $149, I ain't complaining.
