Is it the ol' supply and demand thing, or am I missing something here? There sure does not look to be much to them, or am I missing something here too?

If MC phono stage is less then enthralling will a SUT into the MM input be an improvement (considering you like the sound of the MM phono stage)? What gain does one need for a 0.4mv cart?
