Hafler XL600 Vs Hafler 9505 Much difference?
Yes,they are quite different.Both are excellent amplifiers.The big drawback to the otherwise outstanding XL-600 is the cooling fan.If you would like to talk more on the subject,give me a call.Latty(215)570-8497 
Any love for the Vincent PHO-8phono stage?
I have not heard the Cambridge,but am currently using the PHO-8.It is extremely quiet and well balanced.Though not as flexible or dynamic,it is the best sounding inexpensive phono preamp I have had since selling my Lehman Black Cube SE.It is also ... 
Is it wrong?
A long ago acquaintence(went by the name of Dr. K)once told me:Do what you feelFeel what you do &Do it all over the world! 
Best used DAC around $500
The Cambridge is very good and very flexible.The Citypulse DACS are also great sounding and add a headphone amp/variable output remote controlled preamp as well.If USB is not required,The Musical Fidelity A 3-24 is built like a tank and is very mu... 
Is centerclamp like TT Weights as good as TT maker
I have two of the TT weights and am quite pleased! 
Adding Sub to current system
The Rel subs are musical and integrate well with most speaker systems.Even their affordable T series are terrific and designed for corner placement.

Hotmailjbc,Thank you! I'll call them. 
subwoofers w/room correction

Curiousgeorge,A Hafler Transnova 9300 does very well with the Heresys and sells used for less than $400.The 9500 or 9505 will drive almost anything(probably overkill for the Heresys)and should set you back between $600 or $700.My favorite SS amp i... 
Vintage Hafler amps are a good match 
Budget Phono Amp / Stage Recommendation?
I very much enjoyed your last post.Glad there was no audible damage to the LP.A carbon fiber brush(about $20)is the best way to remove dust.You can do this while the record rotates on the platter.As far as the vinyl sounding warmer:There are cartr... 
Budget Phono Amp / Stage Recommendation?
I have used both the PP-2 and the Dino.The Dino was better.I have not heard the 640P but it seems like its worth a try.I have their new DACMAGIC D/A converter and it is astoundingly good! I'm surprised that Vincent(or an identical unit with a Chin... 
Budget Phono Amp / Stage Recommendation?
I'm currently using a Vincent PHO-8.It is the best sounding inexpensive phono preamp I have used since selling my Lehman Black Cube SE.The Vincent lists for $399 and can be purchased for a little less.Sounds great,seperate power supply,attractive,... 
suggestions on MM to MC upgrade
I have several excellent MM cartridges including an Ortofon 2M Black and a Clearaudio Virtuoso Wood.I enjoy both a great deal.Recently,I purchased a used Denon TD 316 with a nearly new Denon DL 110 cartridge(high Output MC) fom a fellow Audiogon m...
