CSP325 Vs ZP3(25mods)

Any thoughts of what would be better for a primary vinyl system.  CSP325 or the ZP3(25mods)?  I know the Zp3 is meant for vinyl, but just wonderIng if anyone has compared the two with vinyl setups?

The ZP3 is a phono preamp.  The CSP3 won't work straight off of the TT.  You need a ZP3 in front of it.  The CSP3 isn't necessary but I find it enhances the sound -- weight, density.  So, both, yeah.

Okay!! Lol!  Just what I need!  What if I get mono blocks, do you put a pre before both too? Not sure how that would work with inputs though.  But talking big money with 4 preamps if so, yikes! Lol

You just need one preamp or phono preamp for Monoblocks. . . one output for each monoblock. At least your preamp money isn't doubling!
