    Having promised Iíd settle with a simple integrated and finding two very good ones Iíve thrown myself a right curve ball by buying a Gordon Welford preamp. Itís clearly world class, so I plan to have some fun playing with power amps to see what matches best.

    Canít see myself changing source much, as the SL10 is a great deck whilst we have a young family and the Lampi dac is a killer.

    I should probably buy posher speakers, but Iím still in love with the XL Frugalhorns. They just sound so right here.

    A couple of bits are on the way from China - a linear PSU for my W4S reclocker, and a grounding box as I have been intrigued by the very positive comments on these devices by a couple of folks.

    Might also invest in the top of the range W&M speaker cables as I really like the cheaper ones already in my system.

    Perhaps 2019 will be a year of consolidation, making the best of a system that already hits the spot.

    Got a set of w & m cables coming too. Need longer ones very soon. I was going to make some but not really up to that at moment so ordered a set of those. The looked decent for money. Any good Jerry?

    The LS-02 speaker cables are excellent - best I've heard in my system.
    I've a pair of the top o' the range LS-06 on the way

    Not heard their interconnects (yet). They don't seem to come along much in the UK - I had to order the LS-06 new from a French dealer.

    Well, with my new speakers I am now unhappy with my FM sound which screeches the top end even more than did the original ESS Heils, The ADAM Heils go up to 50k.

    So I am questioning the AVI s200 Mk ii tuner, and mad though it is considering a Magnum Dynalab one, yes even for maybe two years. Does anyone have one, and are they really that spectacular?
