– Herb Reichert, Stereophile
"The PS Audio got the nod for warmth and organics...I would definitely take the PS Audio's phono preamp, I was quite pleased by the open, nicely extended playback. PS Audio's Sprout offers...a more intimate, hands on, old-school listening experience."
– Daniel Kumin, Sound and Vision
