Using tube amp with electrostatic speakers.
LewM,What part of "I know they're different" did you not catch?  At least you didn't write that I'm full of Baloney again.......Having said that, your explanation of the differences (the differences I acknowledged).....are spot on.You and others s... 
Using tube amp with electrostatic speakers.
LewMThere's no analogizing......and I know they're different (that's why they're not both called electrostatic)I have owned LOTS of electrostatic loudspeakers over the years and I have owned Magnetic Planar speakers over the years, and yes.....it ... 
Using tube amp with electrostatic speakers.
Everything you say bdp is absolutely correct.......but none of it negates the fact that ESLs and Magneticsrequire a lot of wattage to really sing....That's why Sanders amps are typically 900w into 4 ohmsCan't get there with tubes, at least not w/ ...

The parasound JC3+ is a world class phono pre......very musical regardless of it's cost..... 
Using tube amp with electrostatic speakers.
Planars whether it be magnetic or electrostatic sound their best when fed prodigious solid state juice.....I have Magnepan 3.7s and I use Bryston 28BSST2'sI do couple it with a full tube pre (Convergent SL1 Renaissance)I don't think I give anythin...

One of the most musical combinations I've heardfeatured the phono pre you just bought (JC3+)That was a J.C. Michell Orbe SE with a modified Rega armand an Ortofon Cadenza BronzeThat combo as I recall would be in the 6K-7K range.......If you favor ...

Help With A Turn Table Upgrade
On paper, the TT15 looks like a great buy.......I've had two friends purchase that table new and for some reason, the tables made quick exit from both their systems..........When I listened to it, it sounded a little thin and uninvolving, but I ca...

I think Townshend is redesigning the Rock series and is stopping production of old........... 
Best amp for natural timbre of unamplified acoustic instruments & vocals w/ Revel F32?
I've heard the F32's with tubes and I didn't hear sterile.    I did hear un-involving compared to other speakers.....I owned Revel Studio 2's for 2 years and ended up replacing themwith Magnepan 3.7s which I still own after 5 years.It sounds like ...

As you look at bang for buck propositions, you've got to calculate the differential between the companies referenced that do no advertising, put all the money in the piece etc......with:  what sort of following do those brands command, so what is ... 
Upgrade Opinions, Thorens vs VPI
I used a high output benz S on my Classic 1 that I sold several years back.....VPI tables, both with 3D as well as the metal JMW Arms are very agreeable with Ortofon carts.....I think you would find the color you're after with the 2M black, but I ... 
Advice on speaker pairing with my Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum using KT120 output tubes.
LOL!!!See?   Who needs a desler close by when you can tell everything about a speaker through youtube.....guess we may need a sound quality disclaimer if I post avshowrooms vids.....Based on these videos Ryans don't sound good to me 
My final table , hopefully !
You can get a Prime close to 3K and you really won't do much better......A dark horse in that range, actually well under it would be the brand new Oracle Origine, which comes with arm and cartridge under 2K......

Johnny,If you had any geniune experience with VPI as a VPI dealer, you wouldn'thave made such a ridiculous comment as above......Here's what VPI themselves say about that turntable:Noise rejection allowing the “Classic Turntable” to sit on a wood ...
