Jolida JD9 Mk2 vs MS Phonomena II Phono Stage
Seems odd. I have a 640 and it's dead quiet. 
Vandy or Maggy?
A buddy just got a pair of Vandy 2ci....and if anyone thinks Maggies are tough to position, mess with these. Just look at the manual and see what all they require. Besides, my Maggies blow them out of the water. 
Linear tracking tonearms.....
First, find an old Zero 100.... LOL 
What is the best planar or electrostatic speaker?
Nice way to get a free ad. 
Vandersteen 2CI speakers
...and they say Maggies are fussy... 
floor standing speakers with powered woofer
Def Tech 
Benefit of low output moving-iron Grado ?
The smartass in me wanted to post that the Grado hum wouldn't be as loud. :) 
Subwoofer for "seamless" integration with Zu Druid
I know nothing about your speakers, but subs with Maggies are notoriously difficult to blend. The Gallo TR 3s I got are marvelous with my 1.7s...might be worth a look for you. 
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.
