Spendor D9.2 vs. Harbeth super hl5 plus xd + REL Stentor III vs. Spendor Classic 100?
So the Spendor D series sound quite different from the Spendor classic. To me the D series is much preferable, but others prefer the classic series. I started with D7 (absolutely love it - settled on after demoing over 20 competitors, see my early...

Congrats on what I’m sure will be fine choices. Do post your impressions of the gear here when you get it, as it breaks in, and after it stabilizes out after break in. Enjoy the music

Krell K 300i Vs Hegel 390 Help
However, HiFiNews rated the $6k Cambridge Edge A as the sonic equivalent or nearly so of the Hegel H390’s pricier big brother and brand flagship Hegel H590, where the H590 is about double the cost of the Edge A. So perhaps the Edge A is the one to...

He’s been pumping Coda on every thread all over audiogon. Getting old....

Nope, hadn't read those until now, but looks like Gryphon the clear winner among YT comments also - probably 3to1 or 4to1 on informal quick look
