My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Whitecamaross should listen to Audio Physic speakers . Being a stat owner and dynamic speaker collector I can say Audio Physic will be right up any stat lovers alley . The highs are very close to stats and the imaging and sounstaging is better tha... 
Bought a pair of Magnepan LRS. Should I buy a Schiit Vidar or Bryston 3B-ST?
I give up ..acoustic treatment for room with vinyl plank flooring

Is soundstaging emblematic of reality?
What is the alternative to having soundstaging ? Would you prefer that all instruments come from the same space ? All diffuse and unrecognizable . Don't get why you wouldn't want every instrument separated .

My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
If you look at the prices of most Electrostats they are under 20k . Only the Neoliths get way up there . King Sound , Sanders , Sound Lab all could be had for a pittance compared to the Neoliths  . Ditch the neoliths and buy one of those I mention... 
Balanced preamp recommendation : w4s, hegel, parasound
Check out the Emotiva XSP-1 It is a two channel pre . It seems ruler flat to me . Any recording I play through it can be played at any volume without fatigue . dead quiet and just gets out of the way . I picked mine up in a group package I picked ...

Black Ash.....
The worst ever finish is the natural oak from the 70's and 80's . Give me black ash over that oak any day of the week

If you use balanced and single ended for different sources , be careful . I bought the Freya , it produced a loud hum through my speakers . I couldn't have both single ended and balanced plugged in at the same time . had to return it .  
Need a preamp?
Why limit yourself to only rca with the SYS ? Go with a nobsound - Has a alps pot , xlr ins and outs as well as rca ins and outs . 
Considering switching to Tubes
Get the exact same amp you heard in your system and liked . Any other amp you get might not sound as good . Just because its tubed does not mean any other tubed integrated will sound as good as you like the Yaqin .
