I have two pair of speakers, both made in 1987. The first pair are polk sda2a’s, and the second pair are apogee duetta 2. Placement of these two pair are totally opposite of each other, the apogee’s need a lot of space from the wall behind them, and the Polk’s can be put right up against the wall.
Didn’t buy a prepackaged version. Mine is fully loaded except motor is DC and the power supply is Lingo.
Cart is Kandid.
Cool, that Kandid cartridge is very nice. When I had my LP12 upgraded, Kore sub chassis Lingo IV and new AC motor, Ken was pushing a Crystal which sounded great but my current MC still had a lot of life left in it. For $5k you got a great turntable package and apparently a great deal. Seems you are at Radikal level, I went as far as Akurate. Enjoy it!
Thanks. With the new TT, cart,etc, now I can smell the onions on Scott LaFaro’s breath.
Set-up properly the Linn LP 12 can provide for an excellent listening experience. Now you’ve done it, you have me thinking cartridge upgrade. Fortunately the turntable is in another state so no rush.
Frankly, I think I overpaid for the Kandid. I’m going to give it a couple weeks.
I listened to the Avantgarde Uno horn speakers, the best I ever heard, those Duo must be fantastic.

Im interested in the LRs

Currently 3 sets, working on a 4th

Working/waiting on a pair of Manepan LRS
I don’t have LRSs, so I can’t answer that question. I have .7s, and I power them with M700s.
I power mine with a pair of PS Audio M700 monoblocks. Perfection.
Thats my plan if I can actually get a pair of LRS’s. Plan on checking on the current wait time Monday, but last I checked I still have a while to wait.

And arriving Tuesday are the Spatial M4!
The M4 will reside in the new setup that will replace the Salk SCSS.
