Opinions on Montana EPS MK 2 speakers
The Montana Loudspeaker line is excellent from top to bottom. They are efficient enough to be run by lower power and are in fact quite enjoyable but IMO they really come to life with 100 watts or greater. I have a pair of EPX that I run with a PAS...

Woody Guthrie the song writer. 
it all sounds good, but.....
I have to agree, the resolution of a good LP playback system is truly the best, IMHO. 
New TT ideas please
Doug,I am sorry I cannot agree with your assesment of suspended tables. Basis units will give you plenty of slam and low end. I have also found them to be quick, nimble and very natural sounding. I have owned both fixed and suspended and the Basis... 
New TT ideas please
