This is the brand that Robert Fuchs said:
"The TubuGuru amps are great; you will see and hear it. I use the TubeGuru phono stages for demonstrating my turntables and tonearms. I’ve heard a lot of different phono stages before and the TubeGuru stage is simply the best I’ve ever heard. The sound is very clear and strong, with extremely low noise. You can hear all the details of your records. For me it was a big advantage that I can use four tonearms at the same time. You can switch without loss of sound. Wait until you will receive it and you will see what great tube amps and tube phono stages these are.”
This unit incorporates one Moving Coil stage, on Moving Magnet input, and 4 extra Line inputs. It is dead quiet. As an electronics engineer, I would say that the workmanship is superb, and with great attention to detail. It is a two box unit, with tube rectification/regulation which imparts an amazing richness of tone and startling dynamic contrast. It beat out my Coincident Statement phono stage in terms of transparency and image layering.
