Anyone running a tube preamp with a Pass XA25?
No experience with the XA25 but do have a XA30.5 in my system and it couples wonderfully with my Lamm LL2.1 Deluxe that will be offered here on Audiogon for sale this evening or tomorrow. Enjoy the music

Pivot to Spindle distance
Mark, just went to your system page, good looking system by the way but I have a question for you. In the description of your table you make reference to the 10 inch arm doesn't sound much different from the 9 inch arm it replaced, my question is,... 
Upgrade cartridge or something else?
When you have a product as good as the Teo Audio CBP cartridge at the ridiculous price and a money back guarantee that they are selling it for, it would be shameful not to bring it up. Just sayin. enjoy the music 
Vinyl headache from hell!!!
Oh by the way, beautiful system. 
Vinyl headache from hell!!!
Please explain when you said, if I start it in the middle chances are the record will play fine. This makes me believe that some times it doesn't. In either case I would go through the process of resetting up your arm/cart from scratch. Good luck ...
