New Technics SU-G700 Mk II on the horizon
Yes, worth a try;..."less is more".  One thing for certain, I cannot go back to listening to DACs or Class A/B amps again.     
New Technics SU-G700 Mk II on the horizon
I have been using SL-G700 SACD directly feeding the SU-G700 (original) via coax digital out which I prefer over analog out.  I have found Direct digital out has a "quicker" sound, less processed sounding, though analog out sounds "warmer".   Of co... 
GaN based SU-R1000 Technics Integrated Class-D, review by TAS
Stereophile review of SU-R1000  "amp's bottomless noisefloor" is a good description of the SU-G700 as well.  I never heard the SU-G30 though I assume same analogy applies

Another GaN smaller integrated, Technics SU-G30 has everything bar the kitchen sink.
One dealer told me SU-G30 will be discontinued!?

Pulled the VPI trigger
Did you audition all three turntables ? 
Preamp with Aleph 5 and Thiels
Output impedance of SP9 is 250 ohms which is relatively low ...or at least should have no problem driving A5 with an input impedance of 10K. Output impedance of LS5 is (400 ohms) which is a little higher vs. SP9 though not enough to make a differe...
