Whats on your turntable tonight?
CSN&Y Deja Vu. I hadn't listened to this one in a long time, well before the amp and speaker upgrade. I still had a memory of how it sounded so when I heard it, it was like I was listening to someone else's system! Very pleasantly surprised! G... 
Looking for a tube preamp with remote control.
I was going to suggest the Prima Luna EVO 200 but I don’t think it has a phono input. I believe on some models a phono input can be added on but I’m not sure of the EVO 200. It does come in under your budget and may be slightly over if they can ad... 
Speakers for triode tube amps
Tekton speakers? Ha! I don't think so! They're hideous! 
What Are Your Reference Discs? or Specific Reference Tracks
My new reference is Count Basie - Basie Jam Analogue Productions. I also like the Cisco Music pressing of Aja. On the mono turntable, Miles Davis Kind of Blue or Paul Desmond Take Ten. 
Auditioned Magico A3 - VERY DARK...
Sorry, the A3's need to be paired with the right amplifier. I was fortunate enough to listen to 5 amplifiers in the system. I preferred the tube amplifiers over the solid state amplifiers by a wide margin. To my ears and other people I had over, t... 
Auditioned Magico A3 - VERY DARK...
The A3's need to be paired with the right speakers in order to get all out of them. Anyone who doesn't think they're some of the very best speakers they've ever heard isn't listening with a proper pairing, period.I upgraded my amp from a Yamaha A-... 
Magicos!
Congratulations! I've had mine since December. A buddy who has S7's came over a couple of times and said since the first time he was over he can hear they are still breaking in. I guess it's hard for me to notice since I listen to them most days. ... 
Throughly disappointed with my new Yamaha A-3000 Integrated.......
Update on my A-S3000 that went into protection mode: After going through everything the manual suggested the next step was to call customer service per the manual recommendation. I was completely blown away with Yamaha's customer service!!! After ... 
Auditioned Magico A3 - VERY DARK...
I've owned the A3's since December and believe that they're still breaking in, paired with the Yamaha A-S3000 integrated. I borrowed a Prima Luna Dialogue One integrated for three weeks and the sonics were much more natural even though they could ... 
Throughly disappointed with my new Yamaha A-3000 Integrated.......
My A-S3000 started shutting down a couple of weeks ago. It went into protection mode a week ago and has remained there. I called Yamaha and they are sending me a box so I can ship it to a repair center in NY. Hopefully it will function properly ag... 
Herron VTPH-2A Phono Preamp....anyone familiar?
@chakster dude, have you heard the Yamaha? Have you read any reviews that compare it to other high end stuff that it blows away? Can you afford it? I'm guessing the answer is no.  
Herron VTPH-2A Phono Preamp....anyone familiar?
Exactly, even in the line level pre-amp or power amp.In a phono stage can be more problematic, especially for LOMC cartridges.If you want a very special phono stage for low impedance LOMC then check Current Mode (Current Injection) type of phono s... 
Herron VTPH-2A Phono Preamp....anyone familiar?
If you think your system sounds great, why not just stick with it? Keep in mind that if you go with tubes, you may end up going down the "rabbit hole", spending countless hours and dollars looking to get the lowest noise and highest performing tub... 
Why so many angry audiophiles?
Absolutely! For the last two years I've had the excitement of a teenager with their first stereo. I got mine out from a 15 year hibernation. As I sit her tonight, listening to a very clean UK first pressing of Led Zeppelin III, I realize life coul... 
Herron VTPH-2A Phono Preamp....anyone familiar?
Can anyone describe what I might be able to expect by adding the Herron VTPH-2A to my system? I'm currently running a Denon DP-62L TT with the straight black tonearm wand, Grace F-9 cart with SoundSmith Nude Ruby OCL stylus, Yamaha A-S3000 integra...
