Holbo airbearing turntable
"it’s just under $5K." Oops! Mistakenly used Australian. Paired with decent cart, $6K or so, seems reasonable entry. If I found one like a recent phonostage used for 1/2, I’d grab it. Looks like the only thing limiting will be phonostage?    ... 
Holbo airbearing turntable
Just commenting based on seeing one-not heard, few years ago. MSRP certainly has gone up-yikes! Very simple design almost Rega-ish. Not a bad thing, but... A $12K price tag warrants a hear before buying IMO.  Does the company offer a trial per... 
Eminent Technology Et-2 From Scratch
"Ultimately like to mount this on a VPI Table" What platform? Whenever I get around to upgrading, I plan on using my Classic base for a project. I would imagine  contacting ET directly would be the best source?    
Mofi Sourcepoint 888?
"they did many things impressively except for the upper midrange lower treble dry, brash flavor. " Just like bookshelves, always system dependent. Everyone's "Goldilocks" setup will  be different.    
Prima Luna Evo100 Phono anyone?
I've had mine for 6 months. This Steve Hoffman  thread goes nowhere. The PL can't  be equally compared because there isn't a similar build on the market.   If you're the type to listen for hiss at max volume between tracks, the PL will lose agai... 
Mofi Sourcepoint 888?
"If he releases a 10-10-10 or a 12-12-10, i'll buy it. I like em big." deep_333- A 10/12 would get my attention. I see these 888's being a killer deal in 3-4 years due to low sales. Just like the AJ Elac Adante-dealers were blowing them out 1/... 
You can't afford a Lambo Veneno, so get this..
wsdpohn- I’d like add "Italian music"to my "Domestic"  50/60’s collection. 1f.JPG (524×524) (bp.blogspot.com)  
Wish to Upgrade Phono Stage and Cart
"But does it even compete with my Allnic H5500?" I'm curious if the retail difference($2k) is justified. Performance- I would guess the PL would at minimum be competent with any setup the Allnic served, except for the additional gain it has?  A... 
Wish to Upgrade Phono Stage and Cart
Late edit- Rega P10+ Aphelion-not Apheta. Why not use the top Rega cart?    
Wish to Upgrade Phono Stage and Cart
Rega P10+ Rega Apheta It's a  no fuss install and the only limitation is the signal  path downstream.  Get a Minus K platform for absolute isolation. Want more? Open wallet WIDE. Phonostage- why not a lower  level Allnic? Something different ... 
Food: what does the typical audiophile eat?
Don't eat /drink-all of our food is contaminated. Our water is filled with micro plastics. "Organic" is a joke. That simply means the chemicals used are USDA "approved."

Phono pre amp recommendations? - upgrading from ICON AUDIO PS1 MK II
palutena, I didn't own a Rhea.  The noise issue with just about all the competent brands IMO is negligible. The unit I sold was all tube(no transformers) and the PL is all tube.  If you're one of the "listen for noise/put your ear to the speaker... 
Phono pre amp recommendations? - upgrading from ICON AUDIO PS1 MK II
Intended for original post: Early model Rhea @1/2 MSRP is a great choice. It can also be sent back to update I believe? $2-3K used can get something that keeps up with next turntable/cart upgrade. Recently sold a 12 year old tube phono. Would ... 
Phono pre amp recommendations? - upgrading from ICON AUDIO PS1 MK II
If you want all tube phono performance the Primaluna Evo 100 is at the max of your budget. Presently using one. Competent to handle a $10k+ table/cart.  It will match up nicely with your PL. . A "final/done" piece until your ready to blow some ...
