Any experience here with Ifi iPhono 2 or Tavish Design Vintage phono stage?

I'm looking at these to replace a Schiit Mani that I am using with a Zu DL-103 MK II on a Rega Planar 3 2016. The Schiit has a fairly high noise floor when used with LOMC's and I wouldn't mind a bit more gain (may have to use a SUT with the Tavish).

I'm curious to hear if any members are using either of these and what their experiences have been.

Thanks.

I have the ifi iPhono2... you can't go wrong with it... it is especially known to be very very silent.

You can choose 60dB or 72dB gain for MC carts

The 60dB gain will be quite ok for your Zu DL-103 MK II's 0.3mV output.

I use mine sometimes with an AT-OC9/MLII and mostly with a Denon DL-110.

I don't own one but came across this thread. Note the more recent posts....FYI....

Notwithstanding the below, I've heard good things about the iphono2!
