    It would be VERY LOUD and VERY DISTORTED as it would overload the phono stage of the integrated amp. Then, if that wasn't enough, you would have two RIAA eqs, so there would be a no top and a LOTOF BASS.

    Even those who quite like distortion wouldn't like that!

    no, theirs is attained through meticulous research and development and careful application of sound scientific principles, and vetted by rigorous measurement protocols as well as being overseen by experts in design, engineering, acoustics, and qc..
