It is literally based only on experimentation, and what works for you. I have the Hana SL which I'm running with the ZP3 and Bobs 1:10/1:20 SUT and it sounds great!

Yeah, it's a great combo. I would not recommend selling your ZP3 but rather invest the time to tweak it. A tube phono stage is not necessarily straight forward or easy, but definitely worth it in terms of sound quality and tweakability once you get it dialed in.

this is what ended up working for the Hana SL, with ZMC1, ZP3, SME 309 arm, Sota Star, and SME vanhul ic.

Nearly 3 years with same tube compliment in ZP3. Decided it was time to do a lil' rolling. Early 60's RCA triple mica, long ribbed blk plates 5751WA in 1st slot. Tung sol 5751 early 60's - long gray plts 2nd slot. Hmmmm enjoying this more than the Telefunken 12AX7 short-ribbed gray plate and 60's Sylvania 12AX7 long gray plates. Sylvania 0A3 original tube, a Mullard IEC 12AU7 and Mullard GZ34 round it all out.
Also enjoying a Philips -miniwatt PCC189/7Dj8 input tube in the Zen SE84-CKC.
Keep rolling...you just never know when it might lead to improvements, or just a new sonic flavor!
