Upgrade SUT For Denon DL103
Thanks Raul. I really don't like to eat beets. You may love them. I think they are a complete disaster so it doesn't matter how you try to prepare them, they are still a disaster. Waste your money on all the seasoning and cooking utensils that yo... 
Upgrade SUT For Denon DL103
Thanks Raul. Remember, we all hear differently and have different tastes in reproduction. There are no absolutes when trying to answer these questions as you seem to be implying.   
Upgrade SUT For Denon DL103
I actually have the AnaMighty SUT. Pretty much the same as the A23. I've yet to hear much of a difference... that's why I'm looking to go a step higher.  
Upgrade SUT For Denon DL103
Thanks Raul but I don't like the way any of those cartridge sound in general and match with my system. I know what I like and I'm just trying to get more of what I like with a better SUT.   The DL103 I have is modified by AnaMight Sound. They ma...

Well I will most certainly test that this weekend. Not banning down from a challenge:)  
Leben RS-30EQ Phono Preamp Info
Actually the garage has a temperature controlled record room with some equipment in it too (on standby to be sold)! Our place is really small so no room for all the LPs inside.  
Leben RS-30EQ Phono Preamp Info
Thanks! With the SUT, it’s definitely knocked my Herron VTSP-2A out of the room and into the garage for storage. The ease at which the Leben reproduces music is really enjoyable. So smooth. More, and more tuneful, bass than the Herron too.

Thanks for this. I am enjoying for sure! The Telefunken 12AT7s are awesome in this unit. I've got a big bottle 6X5G on the way to try out, suggested by another owner.  
Best Phono Preamp Under $5k
Thank you. That's one I hadn't thought of. Time to keep a close eye on the new postings!   
Most beautiful turntable under $5k
Brinkmann Bardo, used without any fancy extras can be had for $5k for sure. That's my favorite.  
Better R2R DAC Recommendation?
@calvinandhobbes I had to dump the Stream Box because it was generating a crinkle noise in my Lamm tube preamp, even through other inputs. Weird. Looking for another streamer in case anyone has any suggestions. Am definitely looking for a Pontus o... 
Squeaking/Paper Crinkling Noise Coming from Lamm LL2.1
Follow up: The sound was caused by a Raspberry Pi streamer that was nearby. It caused the sound when it wasn’t even connected to the Lamm. Selling that streamer right now.  
Squeaking/Paper Crinkling Noise Coming from Lamm LL2.1
Unfortunately that's not how Lamm works. Not really available and if you send it in for repair (because there are no authorized service people as far as I've been able tell) it take 2-3 months.  
Squeaking/Paper Crinkling Noise Coming from Lamm LL2.1
Very low noise tubes from Brent Jessee. Also, there's no way if I replaced all the tubes even with less low noise tubes, the exact same sound would be coming out. Something would change. No other tubes. Just Herron M1A monos.  Can it be some oth... 
Squeaking/Paper Crinkling Noise Coming from Lamm LL2.1
Thought it was a noisy tube too. Replaced all the tubes and the sound was exactly the same, so that's not the problem. The amps are solid state but the sound goes away when the Lamm is muted or off so it's not related to the amps.
