    I am geting closer to my final (very final) set-up:
    Preamp: DIY DC B1 buffer (very good, but is there something better ...)
    Power amp: EAR 516 (will stay)
    Speakers: Quad ESL 57 (will stay)
    Vinyl: Empire 698 (would like to let it stay but it will have to go, unless I sell off the SME V), SME 10 (will stay), SME V (may change this for another less expensive tonearm), Benz Micro Gullwing SLR , Paradise phono stage (forthcoming ... if I can afford this after the SME 10/SME V outlay)
    Streaming: Jriver on Win 10 PC --> usb to Nuforce USB/SPDIF converter --> Line Magnetic 502CA: I feel this is as good as it gets without paying silly money and I have had a hard time getting better vinyl sound, so far.
    DIY DCB1 buffer (Rod Elliott MM stage) / EAR 516 power / Quad ESL 57 (One Thing bass panels)
    Vinyl: SME 10 - Kuzma Stogi 9" / Paradise phono stage (soon) / Ortofon 2M Silver (mm) / Denon 103D.
    Digital: Synology NAS / JRiver on Win 10 PC / Nuforce S192U USB to spdif/ Line Magnetic 502CA DAC
    Tuner: Leak Stereo 70 / Leak Stereofetic FM Tuner / Dynaudio Contour 1 mk. ii

    I am not sure what the should be the best theoretical combination between catridge, tonearm and headshell with with these variables:

    Tonearm:
    * Fidelity Research FR64S

    Cartridges:
    * Denon DL103SA
    * Transfiguration Spirit
    * Lyra Delos
    * Ortofon MC20 Super
    * VDH Grasshopper IV GLA

    Headshells:
    * Audiosilente in HDG graphite
    * Technics (the ones that comes with SL1210 mk2)
    * Orsonic 1S
    * Fidelity Research FR S/4

    Any idea/suggestion?
