My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Very pleased to hear that analog may be considered.Frankly, I have difficulty listening to so much SS and digital.To my ear, they are both shrill.Continuum TT is surely at the top. To hear the drive and pace of vinyl, my choice is a Woodsong Garra... 
What do you have on order RIGHT NOW.
Wow, I can’t compete with @birdymaker But have been waiting for several things:Hopefully coming next week, Atma-Sphere MP-1 to replace my Atma MP-3. Coming from Ralph at Atma.Long wait still for Lyra Atlas cartridge from Audioquest. Maybe another ... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Hi Jay,Have checked in on your incredible thread periodically.Your new M6 s seem pretty great.Two “dumb” questions:Why no analog?Generally speaking, is cost reflected in quality?Eg.-$109K Wilson vs $172K Magico.Keep up the interesting work. 
Opinions wanted: 10-30K Speakers for Jazz/Folk
I have $30K speakers I love a lot. But I will always miss my Quad 57s. Especially if you listen to folk and jazz, the Electrostatic Solutions Quads are $6500 and will thrill you for years or for ever.They draw one into the music unlike any.

CD or Streaming... am I missing out?
I will always be oriented toward listening, my precious hours, to the best SQ I can muster. However, it seems very attractive to check out something like Pandora and how when selecting a favorite artist they mix in related content from others. Thi... 
Audio Companies with Integrity??
I tend to take myself too seriously. And have read too many contrarian posts. But it did give me a chance to refer to Ralph's kindness and integrity.I Googled "Release the Kraken". "Clash of the Titans"?Guess that's you? Liam or the Kracken? 
Audio Companies with Integrity??
As you are an owner of a fine tube integrated, I am surprised by your post Chuck. Ralph is not a dealer but a designer and company owner.And prior to becoming an Atma-Sphere fan, for 20+ years, I loved the "glowing tubes" of my SETs. Ralph did not... 
Audio Companies with Integrity??

Power regenerator vs conditioner
I now feel very lucky to have scored Shunyata Triton/Thyphon.They retailed for $9K each. Not unlike their current top line unit and top power chord. But the T/T are two full size components. The Triton is plugged into the Thyphon and they work tog... 
Townshend Audio Podiums: The Full Review
I use SRA platforms for my TT and my preamp. Actually waiting for the preamp platform. But the TT one was an extreme transformation.I admire how many of you are able to describe, in detail, the SQ.I don’t go there and prefer to not “tear apart the... 
Speaker Suggestions/Opinions
Fritz Carbon are a very natural great speaker. You probably won’t find them used though. Harbeth 30.1 is the next choice. 
Looking to buy a power conditioner
I feel fortunate to have found a used pair of Shunyata Triton/Thyphons.They transformed my system.Retail was $18K. Got them for $4.5.Anything Shunyata is superb. The most advanced technology.They have a division that makes units for science and me...
