Modwright PS 9.0 or PS Audio Steller Phono Preamp?
The ph 9.0 is $2900, i believe.  It come with a 14 trial period, last I checked, so if you live in the hinterlands as I do, you can try it at home.  FWIW, I have the ps 150, and love it, but, of course, this doesn’t mean you will. 
New Music Direct catalog...
I’d prefer a picture of someone who was still young.  Phoebe Bridges, for example.  Audiophiles, for the most part, are disinterested in new (last 20 to 40 years) music. 
Got to visit Audio Alternatives
Any relation to Audio Alternative in Ft. Collins?

Can Naim SBL Speakers work with NON Naim equipment
They should work with any amplification. Whether you like the results or not is another question.I used them with Exposure amps and an Exposure electronic x-over designed specifically for the SBL's. I thought the combo worked well in the right roo... 
Exposure XI and IX preamp/power supply
i have a hard copy of the exposure manual, and a pdf of the page describing the pre/ps connection. i just need to know how to get either to you. 
Not your everyday bookshelf speaker?
wilson benesch vertex or trinity. efficient, though maybe not highly efficient. 
Some tables have soul and some not
terms like soul or musicality are so vague that they mean almost nothing to me. all i know is i'd rather listen to music via my SME than other turntables i've owned: LP12 for 21 years, rega p3/24 in a second system for 3 years. 
SME 20/12 with V 12 VS Sme 30/2
So, can the 20Mk2 be upgraded to 20Mk3? 
To SME or not to SME?
Linn owner: the SME is boring.SME owner: the Avid is boring.Avid owner: the Linn is boring.I've actually heard these owners make these comments. 
What is the best arm for a Linn Soundeck 12
roksan nima, a poor man's aro, is supposed to work well on an LP12. availibility in the US may be an issue, though.
