Magnepan Ribbons and Hearing Loss
Maggie ribbons are everything that's right in the world. Enjoy them. 
Fun, small footprint, floor standers
Congrats. Another MA fan here. 
Does your system sound better than most demo's?
I can only compare mine to something the local audio emporium had set up...Peachtree amp, Golden Ear speakers, source was some media player. My system blew it away and not by just a little. Very happy with my stuff now. 
Cartridge suggestions
I'm very happy with my Denon 301 Mk II. Though less money than the AT, it seems to "punch" well above it's price point. 
What is best sub to match with Magnepan?
Just got a pair of Gallo Tr3s....they are beyond superb. Like they were made for Maggies! I couldn't be happier. 
What is best sub to match with Magnepan?
I just bought a pair of Gallo TR-3s from an Agoner. I'll let you know how they are with my 1.7s when they arrive this weekend. They're supposed to be spectacular! 
What is Imaging?
I'm siting here listening to Copelands Symphony Number 3 on my Magnepans. This is imaging. 
Magnepan 3.6R
You should be good....similar to a room I used IIIs in...although I did think they'd benefit from a larger space. They sounded great though. 
Best movie to see what your HT AUDIO will do.
Apollo 13. It has scenes that will test your system both for bombastic sound and subtlety. Plus it's a wonderful film. 
Used turntable market
Add me to the list of folks that had TTs arrive damaged. I won't have a TT shipped anymore, except from a dealer in factory packaging. 
New Magneplanar 1.7 owner
I'm curious about how you have the sub set up. I've never gotten a sub to sound right with Maggies. Are you using an external Xover? Or does your amp provide bass management? Thanks. 
Record clamps: do they really make a difference.
No. No. No. 
Advice for new Integrated amp please.
I have the Anthem 225 driving my 4 ohm Maggies. It drives them effortlessly. 
Best speakers for $1500 or less?
Monitor Audio RX6 
Phonostage with dual inputs?
Boofer...I have the 640, which does support LOMC. I run a Denon 301 II through it. I would assume the newer 651 does as well.
