Replacement for 802 D3s
Thanks @arch2 ...I'm going to give the Persona's a demo next week at the same dealer that has the Blades...appreciate your perspective.I lumped Harbeth in as I've read so much positive feedback on them. The only ones that have hit the mark for me ...

Many thanks @soix ...definitely agree on the aesthetics of Sonus Faber. I just lined up a demo for next week. I'll give the Rockport a look.

@j_husker...Maggie's Song is the Old Yeller of dog songs...tough for me to make it through without tearing up.

Thanks @hudsonhawk...HUGE Radiohead fan and will definitely give both a listen. An older, but great Radiohead related project that I was just listening to over the weekend is Johnny Greenwood Is The Controller...compilation of JG's favorite reggae...

Great thread...definitely going to be digging in to some of these suggestions.@spiritofradio & and @slaw our tastes seem very aligned. Big Isbell fan, both Sturgill's Cutting Grass albums have gotten tons of play in our house, LP5 is just beau...
