Any opinions on a Montblanc 146, which I'm considering instead of an L2K? *Possibly* a pre owned Bordeaux late model--otherwise a new one in black. Are current production still worth it? Any recommended pre owned sellers?       This one doesn't ship to Hawaii.       There's this one as...
Lots of good stuff in this thread.      
Have wanted a Lamy 2000 FP for a long time, as much for the bauhaus design as for a new pen. I'm thinking there's a 15% chance I'll want to get the nib tuned up, and other than in reviews the Lamy piston system hasn't been known for Toyota/Lexus QC.   Guess I could go for a Platinum Chartes Blue/Rhodium 3776, but want to get away from Japanese design this time out. Of course I could save a bunch by getting the 2000 rollerball version. :O) Still a tuned Lamy 2000 FP is a...
Great review. Came close to ordering an LSR310S today, but the idea popped up of replacing my LSR305 with LSR308, and needed to be looked into first before finally being rejected.

I've been running the LSR 305 > Anedio D2 for a few weeks, and plan to order the LSR310S as soon as the end-of-year deals start rolling out. Although slightly smaller dimensions (and price) would have been preferred, simplicity of set up and sound integration became the deciding factor. Can't wait!

  Although the mids and upper bass are turned down via equalization, I love my IE800 especially for classical. I'm still thinking the best upgrade next year for my Grado based system would be the source (DAC). Haven't had time to look into the Hugo TT yet, but my short list of preowned DAC's would include the Metrum Hex and Ressonesence Invicta. The Master 7 could be a less expensive possibility.
