  1. I have heard this combo and it is one of the best analog setups I have heard. I was stunned by the absolute speed stability and quietness of this TT. The lack of noise and rock solid pitch truly creates the inkiest black background. The Thales tonearm with it's tangential tracking is an engineering masterpiece. This arm tracks like a beast. From the first to last track, the solidity and precision of the soundstage is always maintained. Instruments will not shift position or waver over the course of the record. Musicians appear in a realistic 3d space, no pop up book effect here folks. This combination of ultra quiet and stable TT with unparalleled tracking ability from the Thales really allows you to hear your records. This combo always reminds me why I love and choose vinyl records. End game here folks.

  4. Borrow e188cc tubes

    I had grado ps1000 and teles would of made my ears bleed. If you like detail and transparency German tubes are the way to go. Awesome tubes for phono stages. In my gear I prefer mullards. Tube rolling is fun but can get damn expensive fast.
  5. Borrow e188cc tubes

    D getter more extended at both extremes but also smoother overall. Round getter may seem more detailed because of slight upper midrange bump. D getter has bigger darker sounstage where as the round can project the sound more forward and separate the instruments but not in a relaxed cohesive natural way. I'm not a fan of teles. I think they will make your hd800 sound even more thin and with an exaggerated soundstage, especially if running digital.
