Best EL-34 Amps?
Decware Torii MKIII 
Wilsynet thanks. I agree with the what sounds best to me opinion, but always like to get as much input from others who have had similar experience to see if something can be done that makes more sense from a technical stand point. Tried 1. and lik... 
My amp(Decware Torii 3) and preamp (Artemis LA-1) both have a volume control. Do I want the pre up as much as possible and then phase in the amp? 
mono cartridge vs stereo
"The only genuine mono cartridges that I know of besides the classic Ortofons is the Shelter 501 mono and the Miyajima Labs Premium Ebony mono. There may be others, but these were the carts that I found."Benz, Lyra, Koetsu all make genuine mono ca...

Load setting for Dynavector DX-20XL
Probably 100, but with only two options doesn't it make sense just to try them both and listen? 
Azimuth and the Fozgometer
I think not. They probably should've put the channel balance test first. 
Cartridge upgrade, something warmer
