good choice on the vandersteen 2 and the rogue have both for your phono and dac give musical surrounding nova II and ayer codex dac a listenĀ 
the Nova runs on batteries super quiet ever flexible for any cartridge
the codex really expanded the sound stage on cd and great DSDĀ

Congrats on using Rogue! I've been very happy with them and don't plan on leaving in the foreseeable future. Consider their Ares phono stage, i've owned it for about a year very happy


Another plus for your new tube have less need to use the fireplace. Happy listening.


Looks nice!
