I am on the look out for a phono stage with a headphone amp built in. Preferably with decent gain for the cans. Any suggestions?
Cambridge audio Duo has a headphone facility with a volume control, pretty decent stage too,I have the smaller solo stage in my second system.
In the spirit of AA, my suggestion would be to see this as an opportunity to reduce the box count as you transition towards a settled system.
You could consider buying a quality integrated amp with a decent phono stage and headphone amp built in. Something by Luxman or Accuphase should do the trick. Hope that helps.
