    Screw it
    The C2 is a great pre.... plus, the Acurus RL-11/R-10 is very well liked around here and is worth saving for. Ive had a couple and would run another one day (after I sell this nice 4000t of which i have a couple). Start with a great pre and yer set... no sense in monkeying around right?
    I had the nations problems figured out one night while on blah blah blah........ huh?

    No such things as bad days, just bad moments
    If you need or like a lot of inputs, an original series I Apt Holman is hard to beat. And if turntables are your thing, it was created with them in mind. Unfortunately the stock relays calve and both those I own came into my possession with a dead channel but replacing the relays and all 41 electrolytics did the trick. If you're considering one, I hope any you encounter have been refurbed or that those deficiencies have been taken into consideration with regards to asking price. Some think they are a bit butt ugly, but I don't mind, I kind of like a quasi "military" look. The one I have hooked up now is a battle scarred early one but it fits in well with the rest of my stuff.

    I know a Sumo from years ago - Athena I think. It was in one of the sound rooms for a while at a store I worked at. I remember the consensus was that it did better with CD than it did vinyl.

    Acurus has been well endorsed here so it's desirability goes without saying. I have not heard one so cannot comment but I need more jacks and would want a built in phono section - but that's just me.

    I use a APT Holman in the garage system, pretty kickass preamp

    EDIT: I have had a couple of the C2's, they are very good so not sure your going to get better bang for the buck cost wise unless you get extremely lucky

    I believe we have struck a deal. Spoke with the owner and we seem to have found quite agreeable terms. He is going to let me know a total tomorrow so I think we are on. Either way, thank you for sharing this with me.
