i use the c22 with an mc2102. the c2200 throws a larger soundstage and doesn't roll off on the highest frequencies. like the 16 it has a great deal of detail, but it retains more tube sweetness. the c22 has been in my system for almost a decade, and although (through a lengthy audition)i know the 2200 is a better performer, i've grown too fond of the re-issue to part with it. the phono section is also great. speakers are gradient revolutions...front end(s)..mcd205/thorens jubalee.
The 615 has the same type of "sound" as the D700, but lacks 3D, imaging compared to the latter : it has only a 8" vs 10" Dual Concentric driver.
The Turnberry is more smooth compared to 615 and d700, which are closer to System 800 and 10DMTII, that I have also.
Perhaps due to the paper cone ?
Furthermore, the 615 looks like a Darth Vader's starfighter ;-) !
