Add a basic Rega Phono MM £110 and the total in the UK would be £960 plus cables. The D3045 costs £600. That’s not about the same to me it’s over 50% more and a mess of components and cables.I had one of these for a while and thought that it sounded pretty good for what it is. However, as others have commented, now that we can buy the Topping E50 + L50 + PA5 + cables for about the same price…the value proposition is a bit of a struggle. Of course, the stack lacks a phono stage, so there's that.
I‘ve owned a few of these type of things and it looks like a good offering to me.
