Just got back into vinyl after over twenty years away from it. Decided I needed the VPI prime scout with a Soundsmith Zephyr MIMC cartridge. My system now consists of: Pure Audio Project Quintet 10; PSAudio Stellar Phono Preamp; First Watt SIT-3 Amp; PSAudio DirectStream DAC; REL T/7i subwoofer; Pass Labs XP-12 preamp; PSAudio DirectStream Power Plant 12 regenerator. And yes, I think I am now ready to begin the 12 step detoxifying process, since I can now admit that I am an addict. The system sounds glorious, everything I could have hoped for. Ze’ev got me started on vinyl again with the Music Odyssey China LP – so I believe that I can hold him accountable for all this .
