    Default The System

    Hi Guys

    Its Been a hell of a long time since i posted in the Gallery so here goes back to basics and sounding Excellent and matches well all British
    The Sugden has the best Phono stage i think i have ever heard as you know the A28 was 30 from a private add on Facebook thus after a pot clean its in full running order now - I have a soft spot for Arcam CD players as used a 7 for years so when the 7SE came up i had to have it sounds superb the Rega is still a main part of my Vinyl front end with an RB250/Ortofon Super 10 - Upgraded Van Den Hul Bearing Oil - The Tannoy's are also going back to when i bought them in 2013 and have also been used daily and weekly since then i just love their sound for an 8 inch does everything Precise and they go super loud also i have a lot of kit around so i also swap and change regular so this is a thread that will keep being updated as and when changed cables are basic for now - Monster & Cambridge Pacific does the job..

    An unlikely match, but I have a feeling it could be OK.

    Mind you, I've no doubt a Denon PMA-350SE would match that for less than 100! Great sounding amp.

    Not much point in doing the NAD/LK85 thing then. It won't be better.

    Put the money towards a Promithieus TVC to use with the Quad 306. Works great!
