Frederic Beudot has posted a review of the Nagra VPS phono stage (€6995) at 6moons. His conclusions:

“Overall I felt that in my system the Nagra did better with leaner cables like the Ocellias and more neutral cartridges like the Ortofon Quintet Black. That’s because it did not need any of the tonal or textural reinforcements provided by the Zu/Denon DL103 or Dynavector 10X5. Ultimately a phono preamp should strive to take those micro signals a cartridge generates and amplify them to preserve as much of the recorded signal as possible. At this junction in the review, I felt that the Nagra performed that task in a remarkable way which was neither completely neutral nor flashy in a look-at-me sort of way but simply with a sense of presence I’ve rarely heard matched.”
