    From Naim's website:

    "SUPERNAIT 3 has received significant performance upgrades, including a built-in phono stage, making it a perfect partner for turntables..."

    Ok, in the link above the rear picture doesn’t appear to have a phono labelled input on the SN3?

    But, as with so many amps these days, moving magnet only. Why is this?

    Perhaps because mm cartridges can be superbly good.

    I'm not sure, costs perhaps, or maybe it's just that manufacturers have started to re-introduce on board phono stages due to the vinyl revival

    Cost, along with the assumption that people getting back into vinyl will start off with a sub £1k turntable & that likely be equipped with a mm cart.
    Just a guess.

    Presumably it would work with high output moving coil cartridges too.

    Apparently mc phono stages need better internal shielding so likely cost plus popularity of mm carts ie a lot of the rega decks upto planar 6

    Not the best season for launching new amplifiers
    Perhaps delayed they should have been part of the Munich Muso2 launch a couple of months ago ?

    Allready pronounced "signficantly" better than SN2 even its not out before august

    Except that the pronouncements will be by people who have heard it. Already.
