but I just use two 350va transformers ,2 33,000uf caps per rail and 1 bridge
That much capacitance for a phono stage will do much the same job as regulators.
Little known fact, coherent thought can destructively interfere with itself leaving no thought at all, that’s why I prefer incoherent thought.

I've got about 8 phono stages including the nva , personally I prefer the naim over the nva

.you can buy regulators for it , but I just use two 350va transformers ,2 33,000uf caps per rail and 1 bridge
Fair enough. Must be bigger than Coke cans those caps :D

I have gone the other way ie Stageline to NVA. Still got the Naim Stageline but i can't remember a thing about how it sounded. I remember they have an RC filter on the power rail input. Bake off time.

I think I prefer discrete to op amps based on my DIY efforts with phono stages.

Yep , there big blue ones in a separate power supply hid behind a bookcase
