@prof it's been almost 5 days since you unpacked your updated Prospectives so what's the verdict?   
Warm and accurate bookshelves that can handle volume
@akg_ca Harbeths really? Yes they are fine sounding BUT turn up the vol and they fall apart, at least in my experience. Local dealer sell them so have heard them many times.   
phono preamp?
Had a JC3+ awhile back found it noisy.....sold it fairly quickly and no regrets  
Marten Parker Quintet and the Marten Parker Trio Diamond version...if you could choose ?
I had enquired about the Marten Parker Duo's many months back but never heard back from anyone.....this after 4 or 5 emails. How do these companies stay in business?

What is the best way to clean Vinyl?

Wilson to Tekton to ????
