Nice set up! High five for another Bay Area Technics 1200 owner. Have you modified your 1200? Also, What vintage receiver is that?   
Beautiful table, TubeDriver. How does the nude DL-103 sound different from the stock one?

Last week I ordered a Pangea Audio P-100 to use with my Musical Fidelity V-LPS. I was very excited about this upgrade since Stereophile raved about how it was such a significant performance upgrade.
