Do No Harm ... well the least harm anyway
Hi - the response to your question re, "intrusive to the original signal" is to use a passive ("line-level") or active, analogue xover. The passive is the easiest implementation, all you need are the electronic characteristics of the source & ... 
Digital vs Analog experiment
The issue is not that analog is inherently better. The recording is actually different. Agreed - although I would suggest "the source material is better". That said, may people actually like the analogue sound, in and of itself (I do too). No ... 
Gryphon Diablo 300 or Vitus SIA-025mk2 / RI-101mk2
Not knowing your tastes, speakers, musical preferences etc, here goes: if you want ultra high resolution, Vitus. If you like tonal accuracy and musical flow and more power, Diablo. That said, either of them can drive most if not all contemporary... 
exploring DACs
Am I barking up the wrong tree if I preferred the sound of the Delta Sigma DAC in the Chord? Or is there some flavor of r2r that I might like? The simple answer is no or, I doubt it. I had a MSB Select II (ladder) and loved it, but ultimately ...

Agree with the above. Any speaker you like with 90+ sensitivity would do fine. The MBLs are not among these Given the voicing of the amp, I would go for speakers with a flat and extended high frequency. One "point source" type of speaker I woul... 
People complain about lack of bass, not enough mid range. Solution?
Try optimising speaker placement. Then, try some room treatment (diffusers, absorbers, etc) - As other have noted above, you might find the bass magically appears! Following the above you may wish to bi-amp -- or not, as it were. OTOH, if you li... 
If you have a nice system why do you really need room treatments?
Hi - I assume you are not out to take the mickey out of the rest of us so, It’s about a really nice system in a room and you should be able to discern the qualities of a really nice system in room. in order to do that, you have to hear the qua... 
Heavy speakers: How to be able to reposition?
One way is to place them on a small mat or carpet. The you slide the mat /rug/ carpet.

Thanks bringing it to our attention  
Swiss Options - Piega & Stenheim
Hi @qwaszxxx  Firstly, has anyone found themselves in this same position and compared these two models themselves? Unfortunately, no, but I have listened to them separately in show conditions. While I found the Piega clear, with a good dynamic... 
Help . . . I’m dumber than my active speakers!
I'd take Martijn up on that offer above!  
You tube hifi influencers. Love them or hate them?
You tube hifi influencers. Love them or hate them? How about, "ignore them"?  
Classical Record Collection Needs New Home
Hi @laufeyjarson  It's kind of you to offer. You could also post on another forum where many members have analogue rigs, including some setup for mono & 78rpm  
Help . . . I’m dumber than my active speakers!
It is strange that in your room the Yvettes outperform the D&Ds. Definitely try what @erik_squires suggests aboveand also try feeding them the same signal that goes into the parasounds.  
Technics SL-1200GAE or VPI HW-40 or …?
Of your two choices I'd choose a third one: Technics SL1200G. Following that, I might spend a bit extra money on upgrading the arm cable (maybe...).
