    Yep, you have to have the room for those speakers for sure. Regarding the TT's, they are nice but I would not pay that much for a belt drive TT even if I had Trump's money. My SL-1200mk2 w/ the SOundsmith cart would compete easily with either of them and be more reliable and accurate with speed. My only complaint with the 1200 mk2 would be dampening but it's so heavy it has not been an issue. I can crank a record right to the point that speakers are hgitting their limits with zero resonant feedback

    To those that can afford these crazy systems, I am happy for them and would love to hear them
