The FB are extremely transparent and revealing of any poor recordings. My MSB is a bit more forgiving !!!
    Schiit Saga is definitely underrated in the UK as far as I can see; as is the Freya. Bit of a bargain I'd say.

    In my system I have a Kinshaw Perception pre amp to go along with 2 Kinshaw Perception SA phono stages.
    Also use a Nakamichi CA5E as both a phono stage and second pre amp.
    My power amp is a Lumley Reference ST40.

    As backups I have a non matching Rotel pre and power but not used much.

    I use a combination of Paradise, Naim and Lab.gruppen.

    Pre-amp is a heavily modified Naim Nac72 (all circuit boards are replaced by those from Ryan Sound Labs). The 72 is powered by a modified Naim Hi-Cap (Avondale TPR4 regulator circuit and Kendeil reservoir capacitors). This feeds a pair of Naim Nap135 monoblock amps (stock except for Kendeil reservoir capacitors). The bass drivers are independently powered (in active configuration) by a Lab.gruppen ipd1200 - this also does some DSP. The phonostage is a four box Paradise.

    Currently using a Prima Luna Prologue Three preamp into a Prima Luna Dialogue Premium power. Still using the original EL34 power valves however even though I have owned the amp since 2016 it hasn't had a lot of use, in fact, I'd say less than 1000 hours.
