Default Cary VT-500 Phono Preamp

I'm considering some changes to my system. Does anyone have experience with the new VT-500 Phono Preamp yet? Any comparisons to the older PH 302? I haven't been able to find any reviews yet.

Thanks in advance.

The VT-500 will have to great to beat the PH-302, which is my favorite tube phono preamp. Good to see that it stays with the SUTs for MC input, which was a strong-point of the PH-302. Also good to see that it switches from my favorite small signal tube, the 6922, to my second favorite, the 6SN7/6SL7.

Thanks! Looks like it's definitely worth auditioning if I decide to move away from my Audio Research setup.
