As I’ve arrived at an all PSA flagship rig (except for speakers), I find that the vinyl performance equivalents of my digital tracks sound identical.
As a result, I’m considering letting go of my turntable and phono preamp. But first, I want to inquire about the experience of forum members.
My vinyl components are a new generation Technics GR1210. I use two cartridges, an Ortofon 2M Black and a Lyra Delos MC. Both are correctly installed. My phono preamp is a Pro-ject Tube Box S2 with Bugle Boy NOS tubes.
I have a PS Audio P15 regenerator going into a DSD DAC, then to a BHK Preamp and BHK 250 amp. Interconnects are USB Coffee, XLR Earths and Robin Hood speaker cables into Focals 1038be speakers.
Except for the speakers, are there forum members with a rig equal or comparable to mine? If so, do any of you have quality turntables, cartridges and phono preamps?
If you do, have you tried playing the same performance on vinyl and digital tracks and compare the results?
If there is a turntable, cart and phono preamp combination that exceeds the SQ of the comparable digital tracks I would love to know what it is for a trial. It would help me decide whether to keep or sell my vinyl components.
