The new Hegel V10 Phono amps are ordered and expected to arrive mid to late February. Here is a quote from a recent HiFi Pig Magazine review of the Hegel V10 'What I think we have here is a very, very good phono preamplifier at a price that I believe belies its performance - it betters our, admittedly cheaper, reference by quite a margin - certainly more than the £150 price difference would suggest. It is transparent, detailed, and honest with what it is given by your cartridge, but it doesn't mask any imperfections with a pressing or well-used disc. It has a good range of features including catering for Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges, a subsonic filter that blocks frequencies below 20Hz, gain settings for very low output MC cartridges, and balanced XLR outputs.
