The classic whestTWO.2 phono stage will hit serial number #3000 very soon. This is a milestone for us as the original whestTWO got to 2500 before we discontinued it. The great thing about the whestTWO.2 phonostage is that it can be used with ANY low output MC to any MM or MI cartridge. What we are seeing now is that many Audio Technica VM series and ART9XA users are using the whestTWO.2…. not surprising seeing that the newer Audio Technica cartridges were designed using the whestTWO.2 and 40RDT SE.
