    Now that I have the amp and phono stage sorted, will now be looking at a Dac and will most likely be a Caiman SEG after a discussion with Stan, was hoping have it all sorted out over the xmas break but ran out time so 2017 it will be.

    I myself will be somewhat regretfully selling the Philips and buying a cdp with a valve output section.

    Beyond that it's all rolling for me.

    Want to try some nice NOS valves in the amp, try the internal phono stage with a step up (in progress) and build a Falcon LS3/5a kit.
