Suggestions for Phono Preamp
No one has mentioned the Lounge LCR + Copla? I've got the LCR, sounds amazing with my HOMC Benz H2.    
Small, Effective Subwoofers?
Another Velodyne MiniVee user here. Use with my Freya+, Akitika, and Proac Tablette 10. Works great in my small listening room. Just what I need to fill in the bottom end without overwhelming everything.

Tiny Room (6' x 9') speaker advice
I'm using the ProAc Tablette 10 in a room that's similar size, w/ Thorens TD-160 Super reproduction turntable, Akitika amp, Schiit Vidar preamp. I absolutely love them. I'd circulated a bunch of different speakers before settling on these. I have ...
