    Very difficult choice methinks but if I had to decide I would say the Nottingham Analogue with the Origin Live and the DL103. A very, very close second would be the Prima Luna power amp.

    I recently purchased a Dave Slagle autoformer preamp from a member on this forum.
    This is a lovely piece of kit and in MY system sounds superb.
    I have had my AN m3 for years and have never felt the need to change it.
    I borrowed a tvc and liked what it did so decided to take a punt on the Slagle.
    The m3 isn't going back in my system

    I guess it depends on your criteria for favourite, eg because you built or fixed it, sentimentality, most use, greatest contribution to the sound... The things I'd want to rescue if the house fell into a sink hole would be the Avondale M1 monoblocs since they brought my amp quest to an end and would be the hardest components to replace.

    If the house fell into a sinkhole, stepping aside from the fact I'd be f**ked and h-fi would be the last thing on my mind, I would probably try to save the Krell, and some choice records.

    If we are talking emotional attachment then I think my Technics SL1200 and Akai SW175 speakers even though neither gets used much. Always had a thing for the Teccy and the speakers are different and quite rare.

    Probably couldn't ever decide between the Tannoys or the Platine Verdier. But, if I'm being totally honest, I'd have to admit that the bit of kit that has most noticeably improved the music in recent years is a well-used old Moth record cleaning machine

    I,d be hard put to replace the jbe tt, plus it has emotional presence so wouldnt like anything to happen to it. My telefunken twins are irreplaceable and probably only ones in existance. Would thus be a loss. I wouldnt slit my wrists like, just would like to keep them. Family and friends are the irreplaceable things

    Concerning the sink hole issue, if the house was falling into a sink hole, (slowly I hope), I'd be fetching the album collection. A new stereo can be had, but to replace my album collection would be most difficult. I do realize that was not the question, but, if the house were afire I would save the records and photo albums.
