Doge 8 Clarity with tube upgrade or Primaluna EVO 300
gryphonThe fact that you have SOME balanced kit proves your ignorance on the subject. Considering that, most likely your reference balanced kit merely has balanced I/Os, which by no means makes it/them true balanced. But, even if they are, and you... 
Doge 8 Clarity with tube upgrade or Primaluna EVO 300
About 6 years ago I contacted Doge asking why their kit isn't true balanced (which IMHO is where True Hi-end audio begins) . His answer was pathetic, more of an excuse for his mental lazinessIf you've paid any attention, over the last decade more ... 
Speakers for Manley amps
Emerald Physics open baffle speakers should be an awesome match. They are very efficient and an easy load to amplifiers. They should sound magical with Manleyshth 
Emerald Physics CS2.3
My room is large 20+ x 35+ x 12ft peak. I started with KCIIs with both Clarity cap and WireWorld internal wiring upgrades. While they sounded really good I need more speaker in this room. I came across a fantastic close out on the EP 3.4s and was ...

My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Now that I know where you live, I'm wondering why you haven't tried Scaena Loudspeakers  
Oppo's gone, now what dvd/bluray to buy (Oppo BDP-105d)
Most expensive SACD players start with the 105 guts then use better power supplies. I found a bunch of LPMs on Ebay.  One company had very helpful how to photos. I also replaced the IEC with a Rhodium IEC which came with a pure silver jumper to th... 
I think is time for new speakers..
check with GR Research. He bought a container of speakers and is selling them for a great price, though I don't recall if they are < $800 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
WC, I tried several WW PCs in decades past and those I agree with you 100%, but the newer "conditioning" cords are on a different level (to my ears, anyway). But, as I said I will do some PC swapping over the next couple days to reevaluate 
Preamp suggestions again with size considerations
I had a Hattor passive (no buffer) and LOVED it, but had impedance mismatch issues with my amp. Wish I could have kept it.I replaced it with an Audio Alchemy DDP-1 and PS 5 (outboard PS) which I am no longer using. If interested, see my ad in AA o... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I just read a Positive Feedback review of the Core Power 1800 Mk II power conditioner (I have an early version), into a 20 amp dedicated line. And while I found that changing from the supplied PC to a Wire World improved the sound, the reviewers a... 
What's in your CDP tonight? the minority report
mofi SACD Carly Simon. I listened to it a couple times before moving my speakers 4 ft farther apart and was not impressed. Last night I decided to try it again, and was blown away  
Pre to meet 2021 goals
Myself, I run a 100% true balanced system, but, here's a nice single ended brand new designed preamp that might do what you want. And it's only $800https://www.underwoodhifi.com/products/lsa-electronics
