Replaced my Shure M97xE TT cartridge with a Sumiko Rainer a few months ago, pretty solid.

I don't regret replacing my Music Hall Ikura with a 1200SLMK7. It's not a pretty but it's so much more convenient plus it's so sturdy I don't have to worry about it getting out of calibration or breaking.

Aegirs certainly are interesting. Dont know if they were worth the money to me. Really shine on vintage thin revealing sounding speakers so far, pretty grating highs on modern punchy speakers, but only on spotify, vinyl and cd’s sound much better. Never had a piece of gear be overly glaringly shitty with spotify before. Going to have to audition them a bit more sober. Twelve more days to get a refund.

They do easily push 4ohm 15’s no problem which is interesting with 80wpc of A class. Frightening bass on those 15’s even though these amps arent officially rated for that kind of load.

Kept the aegirs after some tube rolling to dial em in. Definitely the most impressive amps ive tried and on any of my speakers.

Speaking of which I just scored a pair of KEF LS50 Meta’s for less than half the price of new because one of the cabinets has a crack in it. I’ll gladly repair and display that flaw for half off of the price. At this point Im running a bunch of schiit anyway.

"Audiophile" is a fucking farce. Whatever sounds good to you, sounds good to you.

That said, I'm running a Project debut carbon and yamaha natural sound CD player out to a Rotel RA-1520 integrated amp. The amp is feeding Large Advent speakers.

I'm happy.
