Just picked up a Thorens TD160 and put on a new Shure M97xe. I'm using a Musical Fidelity V-LPS II phono preamp. Haven't had it long enough to break in the setup yet, but sounds nice. What phono preamps are you using?
And back to talking about cars we drive. Currently an E90 335xi.
Ordered a 2012 CTS-V wagon yesterday. Opulent blue metallic over ebony interior. 6 speed manual and recaro seat option. Arrives in two months.
Do your research on this one. 2006 was the transition year to the e90 body style for the 325 and there were some reports of premature engine failure that did not show up in the e46. Suggest you identify the car you are interested in, test drive it, then get on some message board for that brand to learn what you can before shelling out the cash.
