I believe I've seen the (very helpful) write-up from that comparison -- thanks for that! Final score was 5-2 with some price-related abstentions, correct?
Back to the new deck. I don't really want to comment on SQ yet with table that's hours old, but I'm spinning Steeleye Span's Parcel of Rogues at the moment -- an album I know well -- and I'm enjoying it more than ever. I am optimistic.
That sounds about right.
Glad to hear you're liking it. I listened to 'They Only Come Out at Night' by Edgar Winter tonight on vinyl and then on the Cantana and it was really no contest. LP took it all the way.
