Magnepan and Bob Carver Raven amps
Glen Poor Audio sells Magnepan and Carver. I use heavily modified BAT VK-150's to drive my 1.7i maggies. You need a high current amp.  
Dynaudio customer service ignoring me
Dynaudio makes their own drivers. They are very high quality. I would not substitute them for another brand. I seem to remember Madisound would exchange drivers only a while back. I don't know if they still do that or not.  
Changed subs from speaker level to XLR after many years. Wow!
Just took a trip over to Guitar center and picked up a pair of Mogami Gold 10 ft XLR cables. Spent an hour using the onboard EQ on each sub and listened to a couple records. I must say that the difference very noticeable. Much tighter and deeper. ...

This is interesting. I have dual DD-15’s in my 2 channel system and run speaker line level. Perhaps I will give the XLR a try.    
Why I sold my Magnepan .7's

Lets replace my Klipsch La Scala Speakers
With the amps you have and room size, Tannoy may be what your looking for. It would be great if you could demo a pair 1st. Tim

How is the EAR 843P Deluxe vs. Modern phono preamps?
Well, thanks for that very informative and abrasive response invictus. Does you keyboard have tourettes? I had the 834p for years and found that it is not state of the art. I did do some mods including power cord, caps, resistors and some others I... 
Outer ring - who uses and what are your findings
I use the VPI outer ring with the Stillpoint LPI. The combination is anything but a waste of time.  
Any real sonic improvement using 2 or 3 belts on VPI tables?
I only had 2 belt to work with. I am going to try a third just for the heck of it.
