Densen DP-DrivePrice: $1350


Michael said: If you’re not ready to take a big leap into high-priced analog sound, the DP-Drive is an affordable alternative. It’s a minimalist design, it sounds good, and it’s well built -- a good value that should find a home in many mid-priced analog rigs.

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Solid but not extravagant basic phono stage.
