The Lounge Audio mkIII might be one of the best MM phono preamps on this planet for the asking price of $300. Do yourself a favor and take this review seriously if you are looking for top shelf performance from your moving magnet and high output moving coil cartridges.

I enjoyed your review because of your humble and honest approach, and because of your “I’m just a guy using this stuff” point of view. We need more new guys like you in the hobby.Q.E.
