I use the Audio Research LS26. Some people think the LS26 is an upgraded LS25. The LS26 is totaly different, a 25 cannot be converted to a 26. The sound of the LS26 is much closer to the Ref3, some reviewers feel the LS26 gives 90% of the performance of the Ref3. Should be used with tube amp and tube Phono,you would expect it`s sound to be honest,and it is, not a band-aid to cover the sins of SS.
