You should look into DeVore Fidelity speakers if you ever find the chance. They sound "delicious" with Shindo and Leben gear.

I should... my dealer is a dealer for DeVore Fidelity. No place for speakers at the time which is why I bought new cans.:normal_smile :

OK OK I know it is NOT an amp, but it's sooooo beautifull !

 

this may even tempt me to go back to analog !

Hopefully you can one day. :)

 

Question, Silent One.. did you ever hear the Leben RS-30EQ phono preamp? If so, any chance you can provide an insight on how it compares to the Shindo Aurieges?

Sorry, I have not. He carries Leben gears but I was preoccupied with the :rolleyes:other line. Also, I just returned home with a pair of pre-owned speakers to get me through till next summer - KEF Corda 9's. Will hook 'em up at the end (or near) the Standford-USC game tonight.

Gee, they look gorgeous! Such elegance, and a nice complement to the vintage receiver. And I actually did see them in the other thread; forgive me on that one, I meant after you a had set up the KEF speakers. :o

OH :D. Space is super tight, so their placement throughout testing will be temporary. Perhaps, during football Sunday afternoon... I'll shoot 'em!
