    I couldn't resist the new SP11, such a great preamp for such a low price. And it sounds AMAZING!

    The rest of the system consists of:

    VTA ST-120
    VTA PH16X
    Klipsch Forte with Bob Crites upgrades

    I have a pair of Forte IIs, still going strong after 25 years.

    Yes, good eye!

    I am thinking of upgrading to an SL-1200GR next year.

    What no Vinyl Nirvana TD 125 or TD 160 with a Jelco 550 or 850s? Sorry for the hijack. I've been spinning over this one for a long while now!

    I have a TD 145 I have been thinking about sending in for restoration. I may do that sometime in the future. But for now, I am leaning towards the 1200GR.

    for those who can't tell, the SP11 is the little box under the ST70 amp.
    Same preamp as the SP12 in a tiny chassis, great stuff !!
    Hey Andy, you've got two of the same racks as the one I have.

    Nice! I love my SL-1200 Mk2 for its utility and honesty, but I find the JVC (QL-A7) edges it out a bit on sound stage and some other untangables.
    The new GR could be a game changer. I've read the data, and I know it's something I'd look forward to. Keep us posted.

    Very nice Roy! Great idea to offer this in a tiny package. What are you doing for power supply?
    Perhaps you could offer a similar small PH12? They would make a nice pair.

    What Racks are they? I am looking for low priced racks. Thought of getting some Costco plastic shelving, but I think my wife would detonate.

    Not the cheapest rack system but very well made and easy to assemble.

    Thanks!. I am hinting heavily for Christmas. If its not a gift, I will probably buy them for myself. Didn't think of Amazon. Thought of going to Ikea and buying something unpronoucable.
