    • YG Acoustics Carmel 2
    Love these small floorstanders. I replaced much bigger Focal Scala V2 with these. Although bottom end is less, but these small FS disappears better and more balanced sounding in my small-ish living room
    • LUMIN X1
    Fantastic All-in-one streamer and it replaces previous very expensive server and DAC. The SFP port is one of the reason pushes the SQ very close to previous high-end sever.
    • YBA PH-150
    Under-rated brand IMO. Get it used at good price. Love the sound
    • VAC Master Preamp
    One of the most important game-changer in my system. Improves the sound to another level. Using telefunken E88CC for now. Has another pair of Siemens CCa

    Total 3 feeding preamp, streamer and power amplifier
    • Nordost Valhalla V2 XLR
    From preamp to power amp

    One of the tweaks I found indispensable in my system

    • TAD M700S
    Upgrade from Accuphase A75 to this. The improvement is jaw-dropping

The accuphase’s conservative power rating is 60W at 8 ohm, can double down to 120W at 4 ohm and all the way to 1 ohm.

So far I don’t feel it’s underpower driving the YG. But I never try their Class AB :)

Excellent choice of gears! Do you feel Accuphase has enough power for 75 watts?

Thales TT is fine for me. 
For the cart, I am keeping my eyes on DS audio optical cart or mysoniclab.
Will slowly explore

Great set with excellent equipment! How satisfied are you with the Thales turntable and how did you come to the choice of cartridge? I would have thought that higher-quality systems could show their potential here.
