Hi-Fi News & Record Review, February 27, 2020

In 1994, I described the 834P’s performance as: ‘In a word: wonderful’. Fast forward to 2019, and ditto the PhonoBox, which, like the 834P, ‘swings so fluidly and has such wide dynamics’ – but unlike its still-cherished forebear, it’s quieter, more refined and thus an even bigger bargain. Look elsewhere if you’re a variable-loading obsessive, but I doubt you’ll find anything more downright musical.
