Confused about Rega and VTA....
Hi all-Just an update and to say thanks for all the advice.  I ended up using Acoustic Signature spacers with the Hana SL cartridge.  (Well actually I had the turntable set up by a pro, who did an amazing job.)  It sounds incredible.  Huge leap fo...

Speakers (and system) for a small-ish room
I have the KEF LS50s and the Harbeth P3esrs and love them both.  (I have also gone with the philosophy of not repeating speakers because there are too many great ones out there.)  I also own and love the Trenner and Friedl Suns which will do great...

Retiring my Green Mountain Audio Continuum 3s for Stand Mount Speakers

LIO versus LFD NCSE with Harbeth Compact 7?
Just an update on this (as the original post was 2 years ago):  both my sister Greta and I ended up going with the LIO.  She has LIO (with AVC tubestage) driving her Compact 7s, and I'm running LIO with DHT Pre with my KEF LS50s.  We're both happy...

Vinnie Rossi LIO Or Pass Labs 250.5 & XP10
I am also running LIO with DHT with KEF LS50s.   It sounds great.  You are going to be very happy!  And I also have a long term interest in the Harbeth M 30.1.  I just have a hard time moving the KEFs out - they work so well with LIO.  If you make...
