@mjcmt Thanks for the comments/questions. That tube amp is my Line Magnetic LM-518ia Integrated Tube Amp which is a 22watt SET amp with 845 output tubes. Amazing little 77lb tube amp that can drive my Rockports with flawless control of the whole freq range that most solid state amps can't handle that 2ohm drop. The 1200G and 1200GR i feel are better than fully modified MG5 SL1210 that I ran in the past. If you want simplicity in an analog setup the Technics lets you focus on the music and the perfect timing. unfortunately, i can't resist beautiful complex analog setups and have bought a new table to see how it compares to the Technics.
