Wow, can't compete with your VPI. Beautiful.
That's actually half the LP collection. Total of only about 350 - 400 or so. But to me their gold.
I bought my gear -- except speakers -- in the used dept of a high-end audio store in Toronto a while ago.
Muse 100 SS amp (100 w)
Perreaux (of New Zealand) Class A SM-2 pre-amp
Systemdek IIX TT w/Audio Technica OC-9 MC (glass platter)
ArCam Delta 180 CD w/transport
Dynaudio Audience 50 speakers
I have some tweaking products from a place called Herbies' Audio Labs
-- don't laugh! haha
They are inexpensive and really make a difference, esp. the CD mat. He has a lot of tube damping stuff too. Check it out if you're in the market.
