Last edition to my system were the Mark Levinson amps. They really opened up the sound.
Incredibly dynamic sound, but also refined and non fatiguing. Also added the Technics turntable this year.  It is fully restored and the combination of Hana SL and Project phono amp with tubes
makes the sound nicely balanced. This may be a classic turntable, but the sound is thorroughly modern and competes with my Acoustic Signature/Dynavector Carat and Sutherland 20 combo.
The system also serves up surround sound with a screen that comes down in front of the painting. Acoustic panels and moving my couch out from the back wall tamed some bass anomalies and eliminated some splashiness in the highs. For now, I am quite happy with the sound and the looks of the system. But with this hobby, it never lasts too long...
