Trying to figure out why the first response was removed.  Maybe my post caused a knee jerk reaction in someone?  lol 
Phono preamp suggestions
Thank you, orpheus10.  I will take a look at them. 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Minty Nektar 'Remember the Future' I just picked up.  A little light on the highs/cymbals but still sounds great 
New AT cartridge thoughts/question
Thanks for the replies.  Listening today and definitely enjoying the more detailed sound.  Right now the 2011 Aqualung reissue sounding great.  If I get just a bit of calming after a while that would be fine.     
1st Album you Ever Owned?
@stevewiscI think Cpt. Fantastic was my second purchase.  Unfortunately, it's unplayable now!  Wore it out

Soundstage
Hate to say it but maybe your hearing?  I started having a problem over this past winter where the right side seemed slightly muted at times.  Soundstage seemed shifted to the left.  Barely noticeable but frustrating.  It took maybe a month or so ...

Interesting.  So the 10" woofers only go down to 46Hz, 35 with the BOM.  I guess you need larger drivers if there is no cabinet loading?  Would love to hear them based on your comments!

Thanks berner.  I should have mentioned these are used speakers.  New ones not in my budget at the moment!  If I had the cash I would be very interested in new Spatials.   I did look over the Underwood/EP website.

Thanks. Read the TAS article.  Also the 6 moons extremely in depth piece, hifivision, audio circle.  Really not a lot out there.  Unless I am missing something. 
1st Album you Ever Owned?
Nice thread.  Pretty sure it was Cheap Trick Live at Budokan, probably 1979.  Had a cheap receiver/turntable combo, Phillips maybe?  Turned it up as loud as possible.  Must have sounded like crap! I'm sure it drove my parents crazy but I honestly ... 
Beyond Boutique Speakers
I guess I'll throw a vote in for John over at Van L Speakerworks in Chicago.  He's been slaving away for years making some great sounding speakers.  I've enjoyed sitting and listening many times over the last 20 years or so.  Although not since he... 
McCormack DNA with Schiit Preamp?
I used a Saga + for a while with my DNA .5.  A good (cheap) intro into SS amp/tube pre combo.  Sounded good, adding just a bit of holographic imaging and lushness.  But I found it just didn't have enough oomph with the one tube.  Was considering a... 
Never Owned a Tube Amp and Want Advice
LOL I should have just asked first before adding my 2 cents! 
Never Owned a Tube Amp and Want Advice
Another great thread, very informative!  OP, what is your preamp?  Didn't see that mentioned anywhere.  My suggestion would be to get yourself a good tube pre and see how you like it with your DNA 500.  I'm using a DNA .5 (100 watts) with a Rogue ...
