Have you tried the Graham Slee Graham Amp 2 SE ?

This is supposed to be the best under $500, would love one of these. Made in the UK.
This poll is difficult IMO because the pricing is all over the place. Can we decide on a range? I assume given the progress so far < $250 is a good range for everybody?
That Bellari is truly horrendous. I had nothing but trouble with mine. Noisy, erratic volume, and abysmal sound. It has no place in a system that values accuracy.

I have the Bellari VP530 and ya it is noisy like a mofo... but the sound is truly awesome, other than the ridiculous hum.
I'm not a huge fan of the Bellari unit. But I have and really like the emotiva one.
I was passing through the Audiophile (a word which sends shivers down my spine) section here and a couple of units in the poll caught my attention. 1) IIRC, the Bellari unit has (or had) a noise (hum) issue from its switching power supply. 2) The Maverick unit is not a phono stage. It's a DAC.
Perhaps Rolls has fixed the noise problem with the Bellari unit by now as it would not require a redesign of the unit, only a different wall-wart. I don't know. I'm not participating in the poll or purchase, only passing along some info.

I have the bellari vp530 (same other than has usb port too) and it has the hum issue. Replaced power supply with a Radioshack unit. Still noisy with new power supply, not the best...
