Manley Snapper Triode Switch/600 ohm switchable?
Thanks buddy , wow, your rig is frighteningly cool . Just picked up the Snappers with Triode switch....guessing thats the tighter/punchier feel? Other is more relaxed....Thanks for the XLR tip...on it...What tubes do you recommend? thanks  
Harbeth 30.1 ? The Ultimate Speaker under $5K ?
yep...on it . thanks  
EQ Thats affordable
of course the MiniDSP team has recommend the SHD model , 32 Bit converters , 120 SNR and very low THD...The "audiophile" model ...$1100 ...I dont need all the room correction / streaming stuff ...already have room correction system with my amp....... 
EQ Thats affordable
so I ordered the MiniDSP Balanced last night , I'll probably just also order the HD version as well & see what makes the most sense , send the other back...the balanced miniDSP needs 2 adapter cables for my system...1. Turntable-Phonostage RCA...

so am I understanding the chain correctly - Turntable - phonstage - MiniDSP XLR (so I 'd need an adapter from RCA to XLR ) and then into my amp?and my MacBook goes into USB of MiniDSPthanks !

So my main listening is : turntable-phonostage-lyngdorf 2170 ( which does digital conversion) is the balanced still best for that ? Pardon my lack of understanding 😊

Which MINIDSP model do you guys recommend? , I don’t have a DAC , I use Mac PowerBook pro to run files ...VPI prime scout Turntable for LPs...I was thinking the MINIDSP HD and pragmasi suggested the “balanced” model ...not sure why? Thanks

The Lyngdorf has a grouping of "presets" that don't really suit me..I'd like more control....thanks  
Any insight on Tekton Double impact BE, Focus Se, Salk SS 8, or Golden Ear TRef?
Cosign on the Tekton Encores , but if the price point is too high , go DI SE , great speaker....for me it was a giant leap into a better sound field.  
Ortofon Quintet Black vs 2M Black?
I decided to go with the Quintet Black....more after I receive it & roll out the new TT.....thanks

Tekton Double Impacts vs the competition....
@mofojo - loving Tekton's ....Im in the process of upgrading my entire system ...overall , very happy with DI SEs ...thanks  
Cartridge Upgrade ...AT ART-9?
check out my Technics (2) carts P205CMK3's - TT#2 definitely looks more retracted / bent .....although I heard some weird distortion from TT#1` which looks ok....https://imgur.com/a/AbcecqT
