Pro-Ject Essential II with OM 5E
Rega Fono MM MK3
Naim SuperNait with internal DAC
Naim CD5SI
Naim NAT05
Sonos Connect streamer
Naim Allae speakers
Naim Fraimlite
Pro-Ject Wallmount i1
Naim NACA5 speaker cable
Naim Lavender din interconnects
Musicline Netsleiste

The cheap Essential II is pretty good with a full, dynamic and open sound with minimal sibilance. But the CD5si is the BOSS in soundquality :mrgreen:

Debut II w/2M Red cartridge and Pro-ject Speed Box II
TC-750LC pre-amp
Little Dot MkII with rolled high-quality Russian tubes
ATH M50-X headphones
Miccus bluetooth transmitter + Bose SoundTouch 300 for family listening

Also have a Philips GA-212 that I recently fixed up. I like it but the Debut is my go-to because I've been using it for so long. It's like a pair of jeans that are worn in just right.

How do you like the 2 Blue? I had the OM 5E for years until I recently bought the 2M Red. Is the blue worth the extra money?

Pro-ject Debut Carbon III - Supplied cartridge metal spacer moved to top of tonearm, leather platter mat.
Pro-ject Speed box (UK)
Ortofon 2M black
Chord Clearway RCA > Rega A2D > QED Ref 40 > Marantz PM6005 > Chord Clearway speaker cables > Monitor Audio BX2 speakers.

I have been through the whole 2M range and although I might not be getting the ultimate best out of the black, it does sound sublime. Moving that weird spacer to the top of the tonearm is a must though, which I suppose aids the SRA of the 2M black.

First post on the forum, just got a used Debut III (silver colour) w/ Ortofon M2 Red. It will be used with a Marantz PM5005 Integrated Amplifier and Tannoy v1i speakers. So basically the most inexpensive set I was able to come up with, but I'll be alright. :)

Pro-ject The Classic SB, walnut finish; Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 cartridge; paired with Ascend Acoustics Sierra-1 speakers; powered by Marantz PM-5005 amp. I would like to upgrade the amp next, but it all sounds good.

Nice system! How do you like the blue point? I have been a fan of Emotiva amps for a while now. Since you're thinking about upgrading, I thought I would make a suggestion.

Thanks! The blue point initially struck me as a bit bright, but after about 20+ hours it settled down. I really like the detail it is bringing out in my LPs. I'd eventually like to try an Ortofon Bronze or Black on this table, but this will be fine for now.

I'll keep Emotiva in mind for the amp. The Marantz is nice for the money, but is rated slightly less (40 watts) than the recommended wattage for the Sierra-1s (45 watts). I listen in a small room so I don't crank it too loud, but I'd eventually like to get an amp that is a bit better matched to the other components.
