A newbie to this forum, not the wonderful world of 2 speakers... A brief synopsis of previous kit then i'll cut to the chase... My system was fairly stable for some years, Townsend Rock Turntable + Excalibur Arm/Merlin power supply, Mitchell Iso Hera phono stage, a set of Max's wedge shaped pre/power amps (ic600 i think?) into a pair of kef 104/2 referece speakers. Sadly divorce popped up, and to annoy me, her indoors demanded to keep key elements of the HiFi, the Townsend Pre/Power amps became door stops and the Rock Turntable was sabotaged. Iso Hera also stopped working mysteriously! In search of a decent sound, i've got up some horrible avenues, ie, Arcam 10 amp, a Magnum amp and my most recent wrong compo, Linn Wakonda with a pair of LK240 monoblocs. The Linns are on sale as we speak, and I've got a used Plinius 8100 Integrated coming. The current set up will be now: Roksan Radius T/T with their own Helius Arm, Ortofon Kontrpunkt B Moving Coil, Trichord Dino + Phono stage, Plinius 8100 Integrated Amp, Meridian 506 CD, Kef 104/2 Reference speakers, Chord Oddessy speaker cables. Is this a complete mismatch, will The Plinius 8100 be a dissappointement too? I'm wondering if its the speakers...they're getting old and my ears are changing. I listen to mostly Vinyl, and the system just sounds sluggish now, missing the excitement i used to get from it. Any comments would be welcome.
