If I recall, you were going to get inner sleaves as well right?

At that price I wouldn’t expect wonders but how would you say it compared to other budget/average phono stages? Would it compare, for example, to a PP2E or the entry Project phono?

The grooVcare miniphono 3 is very much aimed to be an affordable solution that works without the typical glitches found on most cheap phono stages I have tried over the years.  Many people starting out with a reasonable used turntable are shocked when a dependable phono pre to use with a line input comes in at R1500 and more. 
It will upset the many poor sub R1200 offerings seriously.  It will not challenge units at twice its price though much as I would love that.  It was never the aim, the aim was affordability and proper operation without incurable hums and splutters or bad RIAA compliance causing bright sound for eg.

The tweaky side of me has already started thinking of an SE CTI (Croak Tuned Internals) of sorts which is very possible but at a price premium.

Very nice. Sounds like a great buy for the price and possibly just what I need for a second setup I'm planning.
