How do you like your phono pre? I also have a Scout and was looking at various phono preamps to match with the VPI.

Thanks for responses,can anyone estimate what an electrician will charge to intsall a dedicated line,I live in an older wooden house with no attic to crawl thru,just rafters about 25 ft from elect box to listening room. A friend was going to help me with this but my landlord insist I use a pro,,

I upgraded my phono pre to an acoustech ph1p,sound is much better now with analog,although I still need to upgrade my cables on my analog rig.

thanks Upstateaudio,I have read that studios really come to life with some high current power and some watts powering them.

Great system. For amp upgrades, I would recommend a Classe CA150 or higher.

There are quite a few for sale on the 'gon. I have the Studio Reference 60v2s and just bought the CA150.

Paradigms seem to love that extra high current capability.

Have fun.

I see there are high dollar Sockets available. My buddy used a "commmercial" grade Socket. An electrician at his work said that they are similar to "hospital " grade sockets for less money. He said the biggest advantage that both have over inexpensive household sockets is the clamping force applied to the spades. He ran 10 gauge wire with a 30 amp breaker.

Question .... Can any gain be had with better quality breakers?? Seems that if one end is can be better (socket) then the other could also.

BTW Im not an electrician so I wont comment on wire runs grounds ect.. best to talked to a pro!

A friend of mine has the same speakers as you. They sound good. Anyway he ran a dedicated power line from his breaker box to power his system. The difference was truely "night and day". His amp and pre-amp are Odysseys.
Anyway just thought Id pass that along. Much cheaper than "power conditioners" and the gain was incredible
