Magnepan 3.7i amp pairing
I also recommend the Sanders Magtech, it’s done wonderfully well driving my Martin Logan ESL’s and as the name implies, Magtech was built to drive Maggies.

That’s Frank Zappa…on the left  
Looking for advise and recommendations on a nice record cleaner.
I recently purchased the record doctor V which you were given a link to above and is very inexpensive now that they have a newer model out.  I think it does a very good job, I make sure I basically have a flood coat of the solution on the record a... 
San Diego Audiophile group?
I’d be interested as well, I’m in Rancho Penasquitos so close to “Carlsbad”.   
Overkill for small room
I concur on room treatment, I have an even smaller room with decent size dipole speakers, adding sound treatment to various locations made a huge difference.  GIKacoustics offers free room treatment advice which I found very helpful.   
Records and CDs
I only recently upped by vinyl playback game with a nice phono preamp and new cart, that took me to a new level in sound that surpasses what before was best, streaming. I’ve a modest digital system ( NAD C658 streaming preamp), but it sounds very ... 
Turntable Cartridge upgrade question.
I recently went thru the phonostage research and purchase process, it can be a blur!  In the end I purchased the black ice audio F159 tube phonostage.  Totally transformed my vinyl playback and then I upgraded to an old school Grace F9 cart with R...

Curious as to why you’re moving on from the prima Luna evo 400, that’s on my radar as a preamp upgrade….  
A little gift for my fellow audiophiles
I copied the song list and will see if I can find them on Tidal…  
Phono preamp, all suggestions welcome
This is a rabbit hole I went down recently as well. The widely diverse responses can be bewildering!  I ended up getting lucky and finding a black ice audio f159 for under $1,000….its wrapped under our tree so I’ve yet to hear it!!!  That said it’... 
High quality recordings any genre
I too find myself seeking out well recorded music because it makes my system come alive in a way lesser recordings cannot.  that doesn’t mean I don’t listen to or enjoy those less well recorded music.  for instance, for all the hub-bub about Dark ... 
Is There Just One Single Album That Does It For You, Completely? Just One.
Funny how many responders can’t follow directions!  It was ONE album!  😹 but ditto on Aja….  
Aggrivated tinnitus from speakers?
I too have tinnitus but listening to my music never seems to bother me even when played loud.   I am using Martin Logan electrostatics….you might consider auditioning this type of speaker, there’s no specific driver emitting high frequency sound a... 
Martin Logan vs. Everything
I’m a proud owner of ML Classic 9’s setup in a small bedroom, max size speaker for the space but with some properly placed acoustic panels to control reflections the sound is immersive and clear, a B&W sub makes sure the bass is deep and tight...
