    Looking at your kit list Paul, the VRDS10 and turntable would be perfect to bring along. The TT should keep Adrian from moaning there isn't one available
    CD player = Marantz CD6006
    DAC/pre = BMC UltraDAC
    Power amp = XTZ Edge S2 300
    Speaks = Quadral Chromium Style 6

    I donít mind what we use for input as long as its not a mobile phone playing some low-fi MP3 or any other lossy crap, and remember I am imbedded with technology. I just think a TT with a good needle and a nice black disc has a certain je ne sais quoi, oops I gone all Francois.
    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    Analog Inputs: Pro-Ject Signature 10 TT & arm, Benz Micro LP-S, Michel Cusis MC, Goldring 2500 and Ortofon Rondo Blue cartridges, Hitachi FT5500 mk2 Tuner

    Digital:- Marantz SA-KI Pearl CD player, RaspberryPi/HifiBerry Digi, Buffalo NAS Drive

    Amplification:- AudioValve Sunilda phono stage, Krell KSP-7B pre-amp, Krell KSA-80 power amp

    Output: Wilson Benesch Vector speakers, KLH Ultimate One Headphones

    Cables: Furutech AG-12-R4 High Performance Phono Cable, Tellurium Q Ultra Black II RCA & Chord Epic 2 RCA, QED Genesis Silver Spiral speaker leads, & links


    I think I am nearing audio nirvana, but donít tell anyone.

    The Devon part I can live with, but not that kind of foul language

    No probs bringing the VRDS10 but as itís missing its internal DAC I can bring a couple to play with.
    Iíll have to think a bit harder about the TT, it hasnít moved for ten years or so and is surprisingly heavy.

    I'd bring my speakers, but they weigh 100kg! There's a Benchmark DAC3 HGC, a #26 DHT pre, a Concordant valve pre, a couple of little valve power amps (Ming Da MC84-C and a 6 watt SET thingy) and if you really want, a pair of Heybrook HB3-2s. And a portable USB hard drive with nearly 1TB of music on it.

    My system is in complete upheaval at the moment as I have sold my Rotel pre and using an FX Audio valve one right now, have bought a Yamaha integrated and another one from France but the seller isn't being very communicative. so that might go tits up worse luck. I have my Vincent CD player up for sale and so is my Lyngdorf power amp, so their replacements are an unknown right now. I want a really good CD player next.

    My lovely Quadral speakers are going nowhere

    As part of the swap around process I have bought a DAC which is long overdue. Prompted by the lousy review that What Hifi gave the player I have just bought so an external DAC might be in order.

    My seller in France has been in hospital so the amp is on it's way now

    I for one am very keen for a listen. Heard a Radford pair at a bakeoff some years ago and was very impressed.
