    Yes, checking the Eq accuracy may be a bit much for this occasion! But do try to match the outputs at line level.

    I could bring my LFD DLS pre as discussed. It also has 2x sets of LFD Grainless interconnects and an LFD power cable, which are a natural match. This is one very very transparent and dynamic preamp, which unlike my old Krell, cavernously deep and rich as it was, will easily highlight any difference in source components.

    Yes, we did discuss and yes, you should bring it. A little comparison with the Slagle AVC is of interest.

    Yesterday I went to a meet of the Yorkshire HiFi Club and we compared eleven phonostages (including the LDA JFET and the Modwright mentioned above). We just played one after another and it still took six hours!
