Last month I bought a Project Debut Carbon with a Bellari VP130 tube phono preamp to begin my reentry to the vinyl source world, which I've been away from for 5 or 6 years. Still using and enjoying the Cavalli LF and LCD-2R1. I'm absolutely loving just enjoying listening to music that sounds so right and natural to me. Using the Bryston BDP-1 or a CD player as a source through the W4S DAC2 also sounds very good but there's something so appealing about listening with the vinyl source with intangibles that I'd be hard pressed to explain. Tonight has been a great musical journey with SRV-Texas Flood, Roomful of Blues-Dressed Up To Get Messed Up and Genesis-Duke. All thoroughly captivating. It's amazing how good the Debut Carbon is for $450 for anyone considering getting back to or discovering the world of vinyl. The hunt is also on for a good used Linn LP12 with upgrades and a better preamp with good phono stage but it's all good in the meantime.
