Is no one using vinyl into the D/V. I have a Kenwood KD990, Audio Technica 33EV MC cartridge using my own air dialectric solid silver 4 x 26AWG conductor i/connects into a Talk Electronics MC3 fully discrete phono stage and the same i/connects into the D/V.
This vinyl rig has never sounded as good. The deck of course is silent and what I didn't expect was just how good the arm/cartridge/phono stage combo sounds like using the D/V. The bass is truly awesome. I played what I already knew was one of Joni Mitchell's best LPs the 1976 - Herija - Jaco Pastorius work pervades virtually the whole LP - unbelieveable.
The D/V and vinyl re made for each other. I'm now seriously going to have to think about using the D/V as a pre-amp with a mosfet or class D output amp.

Hi! I would be super interested in trying this with my home setup — currently running a pro-ject debut into my ps audio sprout. would I need a separate phono stage to use the dv? Apologies for asking v rudimentary questions. PS Hejira one of my all time fave albums!

No need for a separate phono stage unless (unlikely) there is a bad impedance match with the D/V. If your analogue rig is set up to it's optimum you are going to love it - enjoy.

So, should I just run my turntable into the D/V and then run the D/V into the sprout?

No - you have a situation as follows - your Sprout has a phono stage, your t/t being connected to the Sprout via i/connects to the phono stage inputs, which then connects with pre-amp/amplifier circuits and the choice of h/phone or speaker output. I don't see how the D/V comes into this unless you then want to connect it to another power amp. Only by connecting your t/t into a separate phono stage and then into the into the D/V and maybe possibly then if the Sprout can do it to function as a power amp but this way you would effectively have a second system. I don't see a need for a D/V with what you have - hope this helps.
