Technology wise the Boulder is based on a worked over version of the Dean Jensen J990.
That is hardly SOTA. That does not imply that it does not sound great and
build quality is first rate.
I never said that the Pardise is cutting edge. I get tired to repeat my claims like a praying mill.
The Paradise in the hands of the geniussed, the experienced, the average DIYer and the downright foolish. So what ?

I had enough play with a 2008 in an expensive installation I was doing some work on few yrs ago. Hiss was audible on 89dB sens speakers at 2-3m distance when the MC phono was switched in at most gain. Build quality was first rate, the user interface very nice also. High industrial quality machine in other words.

Do you mind if I ask you what is your full set up and what is your reference phono?

Nh, I'd only be impressed if you told me the singer was a lady.

Was it still audible in your set up when a vinyl was playing at normal listening volume? Did this distract you from the overall musical event?

This opens up a can of worms. NOISE FROM THE PHONO STAGE IS NOT ALLOWED.
It swallows up the micro details. Noise from mechanical problems of vinyl tracking is very different from electronic noise that simply limits dynamic range. Also why should a noisy stage sound better then a clean one ? That really does not make sense to me plus where is the problem ? Phonos can be designed for minimum noise so why not do it ?
Incompetence ?
