The system components have remained largely unchanged, but for the additions of a large Minus K platform for the turntable, a pair of 15" subwoofers to augment the lowest octaves and the installation of a robust electrical sub-system--powered through a Controlled Power 10kVa isolation transformer. The main change is the room--we relocated from New York to Austin, TX in 2017 and I now have a longer, narrower room that occupies most of the 2nd floor of the house.

Interesting System I would like to hear one day .... Do you like both cartridges same or is one your favorite?


Correct, the "SRC" Cleaning concept is superior to anything else :-)



You own the Klaudio RCM , may I ask, did you see their additional record changer unit? It is quite new I think.


Yes, hum can be a time consuming problem, same system can work in one room and in the next one not, i use grounded power cords for my amps, the front end is running without, external ground wiring, sometimes it is try and error...
Great that the Manufacturer is so close to you, maybe you can loan a Phonostage from him (when you have nothing better to do :-)), he offers a LP2 with 70db gain, a very remarkable unit ...
When you will meet V. tell him a friendly 'Hello' from an unknown Lamm owner :-)
Happy Listening


I did read some postings, may I ask why you sent to L2R back to factory? Upgrade available?
Some time ago I listened to the Allnic combo, too and I agree with you opinion about.
