I would expect that the phono stage is similar if not identical to the one in the RR2150 which I think is also the same as the 990 processor. Both have been noted in reviews to be very good.

I believe that the phono stage in the 2150 is well regarded. I have a hard time believing that the 2160 wouldn't, at the very least, match it for quality.

I've been eyeing the 2160 since hearing about it. I had ruled out the 2150 in the past due to its lack of the digital connectivity that is now included on the 2160. Currently using a Marantz AVR (SR6003) as a 2 channel preamp running a Adcom GFA-5500 200 watts per channel @8ohms//350 watts per channel @4ohms. The Marantz' DAC is doing the conversion from my digital source. I'm running pure direct so I run the preouts through the 80Hz crossover in my sub and back out to the amp so the amp & speakers don't get the full low bass.

I wonder if I'd be happy replacing the Marantz/Adcom setup with the 2160? Thoughts!!
