Rega RP8 cartridge?
do th Nagoaka and zu need shims with 808 arm 
Easy to drive, outstandingly natural sound from 40-50 Hz up.....AN-E, O/96, others?
Big Tannoy - the legacy arden do 35hz - 30kHz and an easy 93db driving speaker. But O93 should be cheaper and easier to pick up in the US (tannoys in UK relatively cheaper $7000 new for the Ardens) and I would have prob been keen on them and Audio...

What are the top 3 dream speakers you wanna buy next regardless of price?
I really wanted the tannoy Arden Legacy and then I went and got them ...... organic music I wanted ..... makes me hanker for Westminsters but would need the stately home to match them properly.

Looking for the best Preamp with a phono circuit built in
