Responses from platsolos

Pass Labs vs. Levinson Pre's
Go with the Pass, it sonically offers a more transparent image as well as a sweeter overall presentation. A good friend of mine was amazed at the X1 sound saying it was tube-like sweet with amazing dynamics and openness! 
The Worst Speaker you have ever heard.
Thiel. Any of em. 
Transport Recommendations Please.
Never heard but only heard great things>>>VECTEUR D2.2. People say it is better than Levinsons etc.... you will have to see for yourself, but this is what I would get. Just stretch the budget a bit, you will not be sorry. ($1290 NEW)Other...

CD players with volume control ?????

Tyler Acoustics Taylo 7U vs. Linbrook Sig. Monitor
Rgd-That was a great response. Thank You! And yes I do have the solos now which I really love their bass. What amplification are you using for your linbrooks? I have a Pass X150 at 150 you think the Pass could bring out more bass in th... 
How good is the Resolution Opus CDP?
