Best speakers for a Pass XA 30.5
I would personally recommend a pair of Tekton spkrs. I own a pair of Pendragons, and they sound absolutely phenomenal. Nothing gets past em with the amount of detail they deliver. Pass Labs amplifiers sound amazing through Tekton spkrs. I’ve heard... 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Pixies MoFi pressings vs 4AD U.K. 1st pressings. The 4AD pressings seem to be surprisingly more open and dynamic.  
Selling Tubes.
@markhh2You could try Greg at Cranky’s amp repair. He’s been a very close friend of mine for many years, and he is strictly a tube guy. There’s nothing Greg doesn’t know about tubes. He’s been doing it for almost 40 years. - Nick

@millercarbon seems to be on the right track, IMHO

Looking for an integrated tube amp under $2500
I’d suggest the Rogue Cronus Magnum too, or a PrimaLuna integrated. I’d think that either one would work well with your spkrs. This may sound stupid, but I always just put the grills on my spkrs for recordings that are a bit too bright, because I ...

Need your LP purchase assistance
MoFi release of Natalie Merchant “Tigerlilly” is the only vinyl releae of that LP. It’s finally avail from MoFi again right now. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but it’s 2xLP @ 45rpm and sounds fantastic
