When I read about my gear, I realize that they are all built like a tank and they really complement each other. It’s very basic but I love the sound. 
The Linn is 35+ years old and has been with me from the beginning. It has been the one constant in my upgrades over the years.  
Linn LP 12, Lingo ps with Ittok arm and Hana SL is on the wall shelf. Driven by Prima Luna Prologue Premium integrated amp with Gold Lion KT77 power tubes. Elac Alchemy phono preamp. 
Second turntable is VPI Cliffwood with Sumiko Moonstone. Marantz 8005 CDP. 
Audio Envy cable throughout (CDP has a VDH pc)
Isotek surge. 
Dynaudio Excite34 speakers.

Well thought out system. I don't have any constants since the beginning of my audio journey in the '70s like you, but only have an average system.

How's the Linn compare to VPI
A non-typical match, but power-hungry Dynaudio's do sound good w/ tubes. I'm using Excite 10 w/ Mystere (PL's sister co.) tube amp.
