Maybe better, but not as much fun and without the flexibility of trying different phono stages, etc.
Mark,
Urika in one Superline in the other?
What others have you tried since Peters last visit?

This is still the best Dentist film ever made. :smt036

Stu,
Have tried a few Whest's, purchased the Aurorasound Vida. Ended up selling the Vida after 6 months- just not enough bite . The Urika clearly bettered it. Currently running a Whest Titan Pro- very nice but at a cost. I would like to try a Tron just to see what a good tube amp brings to the party. The Urika deck is tough to beat :D !

Oh, and I ran a Superline/SC2/Airplug prior to the Urika. It was good but I prefer the Urika. Lost a few levels of Fraim as well.. The Naim has that boogie factor but not nearly as resolving as the Urika.

Stu, in answer to your question a few posts back, Ali wanted to listen to Legends.
She is slowly beginning to notice things on her favourite albums now, that she never picked up on before. The Beatles have stepped up 3 or 4 gears and sound hungry for success, like they are really enjoying it. Listening to Lennon on Twist and Shout is almost painful, he's ripping out his vocal cords and throat with a heavy head cold. Reading their biography confirms this too. It made Lennon a legend right there.

So we are in agreement, more than we were.
