Recommend which SPU?
You would recommend the Spirit over the #1e if I'm just thinking about getting a taste before I commit to a large investment?

Is there a difference between the Royal G and Royal GM? 
WTL Simplex II>A23 Interconnect>& Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum II Hum
I had a Simplex with hum too and the solution was to buy shielded phono cables. I ordered a set from Grover Huffman and the hum went away. 
5 meter Speaker Cable Recommendation - flexibility important
I see now-- the answer to my question is yes.Is the Duelund flexible enough to bundle up to a 1' circle when I'm not listening? I have a small space and have to move the speakers and wire out of the way between listening sessions.

I have Herron electronics and am using the Duelund 12ga wireHi Goose- so with the Duelund you use 1 strand for + and another for -? 
Harbeth 30.1 upgrade from C7ES-3 Question
Additionally I must add that low level listening is way way better with the M30.1s. I still have the C7s and side by side it’s an obvious advantage.Just trying to help others who are considering this upgrade. 
Harbeth 30.1 upgrade from C7ES-3 Question
After further listening, I'm thinking it is an upgrade. I feel like the purity of voice and instrument has grown on me and swapping back the C7s is a bit unsatisfying. Definitely hear more of an edge to the vocals and in general everything is a bi... 
Harbeth 30.1 upgrade from C7ES-3 Question
I now have both the C7s and the M30.1s in house. Don't know that I'm hearing a $1200 difference. Giving up bass for a degree of purity of midrange is a tricky trade. 
Harbeth 30.1 upgrade from C7ES-3 Question
I'm using Foundation stands and I already have 30.1 Foundation stands that I got from a friend when he upgraded to 40s. It's a tricky loft kind of room, actually large but then split by a room divider. Speakers sit in the middle, clear of any wall...

Thorens 124 a little noisy

Thorens 124 a little noisy
Thanks for that explanation. I've talked to a few rebuilders now and it's sort of the dirty little secret: the very early ones had a poorly designed brass bearing on the step pulley which Thorens quickly redesigned. They aren't retrofittable. I ha...

Herron VTPH-2 12ax7 Recommendations?
One thing though, the "matched" teles were not so I’ve had to adjust the balance on my VTSP to 1 o’clock. Keith says no sonic penality, but it makes me nervous....
