The new SME Synergy. All-in-one fully integrated. Comes with arm and top end Ortofon cartridge installed. A Nagra phono, powered by a 9V battery is included in the chassis at a price of GBP15,000.

This will be a very good integrated TT going by my previous experience of using the Nagra BPS Phono with my SME20/12 TT.

You said good phono

Integrated ones usually have sucky phono.

Them's the breaks.

My recommendation is to forget about an integrated all in one.

For the LS50W, I'd suggest maybe an Audio Technica LP7 - that has a built in (OK) phono that even does MM/MC - and best of all, the phono preamp can be turned off when u use a better one. You'd be surprised how few can be turned off.
And when you can spring for it, add a MoFi StudioPhono later on. That is a surprisingly good phono preamp.
