I’m new to the community and this is my first thread/post. Looking for some advice from the resident experts!
I’m looking for an integrated amp to power my ELAC debut 6.2’s. This would be primarily for vinyl listening, and im currently using the AT LP120 turntable.
I’m very interested in the Sprout 100, which is at the top of my price range. My questions:
1)how is the phono stage overall on this unit? Specifically, will it give the ELACs the power they crave without having to turn the volume all the way up?
2)the other option I’m considering is the Yamaha AS501, which certainly has power…yet negative reviews of its phono stage has caused pause. It also doesn’t have Bluetooth capability (a nice feature on the sprout).
I obviously know that PS is currently packaging my speakers with the sprout, but I’m looking for opinions on those who have actually used them (with vinyl), as well as opinions on how it compares, positively or negatively, with the Yamaha.
I’d really like to get my system in place and not have to upgrade (eg spend more $) for a while.
Thanks in advance for the advice, looking forward to more discussion!
