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.  
$1000 (used ok) Streamer Dac recommendation please
Great idea but unfortunately just a DAC so I'd need a streamer too.  
MM Phone Preamp for DL103 (Already have a stepup)
I lost a channel because the tube sockets need replacing (It's a LP2). I still haven't asked what upgrades they are doing for the LP2s still. They may not offer anything anymore but I'm prepared to listen if they offer something.

Thanks for the suggestions @solypsa. Hageman is a great idea. I wish I could get a Le Phone fast enough but shipping from Ana takes quite a while.  
Another turntable
I second the PTP solid 9 or 12. Incredible table. Stabi R with 4Point otherwise. But why not just upgrade your arm to the 4Point and keep the TW? Easier step and it will get you closer to the big boys than you think  
What'd You Get For Xmas?
@upscaleaudio My wife has long given up on getting me anything. Birthdays and holidays are always "what are you buying yourself"? She's very nice about asking if I am enjoying my self purchased presents after the fact!

From a low rent mind. Everything that’s wrong with this world. People that are miserable in their own lives who want company in their misery
