Best CD player from this list
Thanks again for all the feedback. Based on all this info, I decided to give the 851c a whirl. I recently picked one up on the used market from the original owner. It arrived this past week and had one demo session thus far. I have much more liste... 
Best CD player from this list
Thanks for the feedback guys. To provide some additional info, I’ve been demoing a friend’s 840c. Of the list I provided, the two I’m most interested/curious about are the 851c and cx7e mp. The 840c sounds very good; especially with electronic mus... 
Anyone still using Madrigal/Levinson HF10C Speaker Cable?
What?  
Cables for Cambridge & Mark Levinson
adg101, thanks for the suggestions. I borrowed a pair of standard xlr cables from a friend. They are from a music store (instrument shop). They says ROHS on the side. Anyway, demoed rca vs xlr and xlr is SO MUCH BETTER. Holy cow! Anyway, there is...

Amp / Preamp match?
Update to my original post….sold the proceed and pickup a levinson 383… awesome sounding integrated and mates very well to my revel f30’s. I cleared out most of my other gear to get it to fit my budget, but it sounds wonderful! 
Mark Levinson 39 or Wadia 830 for direct to amp?
jbuhl,Funny you mention that... I did speak with McIntosh. They referred me to George Meyer AV in CA. I spoke with them this afternoon and they do service the 830 and all Wadia gear. I asked for a copy of the service manual section pertaining to a... 
Mark Levinson 39 or Wadia 830 for direct to amp?
Hi riley804,I wouldn’t say “low budget,” but then again it’s all relative. Anyway, these latest posts have been in an attempt to find gear that compliments my latest speaker purchase (revel f30’s) back in Feb from a local audio buddy of mine. The ... 
Mark Levinson 39 or Wadia 830 for direct to amp?
The ML 39 uses a cdm12 industrial transport. The wadia uses the pioneer 1343 stable platter—same as the theta miles. I googled both and there are replacements out there, but I don’t think the parts are made anymore. Cost for these replacements app... 
Amp / Preamp match?
The Adcom 750 arrived and had damage, so it was returned. Any other preamp recommendations that would sound good with the Proceed?  Another option is to go back to an integrated amp or integrated cd player. Possibly the Primare I30 integrated or W... 
Cable recommendations for my new (preowned) system...
Thanks for all the suggestions. To answer an earlier question, I’m currently using Mogami 3082 speaker and 2549 interconnects. I also have Discovery Essential speaker and Essence interconnects. However, I haven’t hooked up any of the Discovery’s y... 
CD Player Recommendations…
Update: I just recently sold my MF A308 integrated and picked up a Proceed Amp 2 to better match the sonics of my Revels—I’ve read great things as both have Madrigal DNA. I’m planning on mating them with an Adcom GFP-750 preamp in passive mode. An... 
Amp / Preamp match?
Update: I picked up the proceed amp 2.  Next is the adcom 750 pre. Or... would the matching proceed PRE be a better sonic mate? 
Amp / Preamp match?
In addition to the Proceed Amp 2, are there other amps that would better match the the sound characteristics of the Adcom 750 pre and Revel F30’s? After some additional browsing in my budget ($1,000-$1,200; max $1,500) some others I’m curious abou... 
Amp / Preamp match?
