 I rotate two other pairs of speakers through my main system, Nola Boxer 2’s,and Graham Chartwell LS3/5’s. I also have a secondary system in the “Pit”( our finished basement.) I’ll be adding pictures in the near future. In the Pit I’m running a First Watt J2, Promitheus TVC pre, Decware Z stage, April Music Stello DA 100 signature, Bluesound Node 2. Also rotated down here are a pair of Monarchy Audio sm70mkII’s.  I also rotate my speakers through this system as well. Cables by: Analysis Plus, Dyson Audio, and PS Audio Chinese knock off.

Thank you for the positive comments mjcmt.  I do think a tube pre is the way to go with Mr. Pass'amps. The sound to my ears is magical! 

    The Onkyo has worked flawlessly. It definitely is a lower budget deck. I did find a big improvement using an external DAC.( Although,I used it for about 5 years without one.)  I'm starting to think that an Audiolab cd transport is where I'll probably end up. 
  
   If you are nearby to Horn Shoppe, I would definitely check out his products. He makes some very highly regarded pre amps. It looks like he's always tinkering with something.

This is a very nice 5 star system Rocray.
Your pre/ power amp pairing is great. (I had a DJH tube preamp w/ Pass Labs Aleph 30 amp and thought a tube pre worked out well w/ Pass Labs)
A wonderful TT and DAC too.
How does the Onkyo work out for a transport? (I'm using a cdp as a transport and I'm a anxious to try a real transport)
I've always wanted to hear Horn Shoppe speakers too. (There not terribly far from me)
Enjoy listening to it.

Thanks b_limo. Those are an Ed Schiiling creation. I found these used about 6 years ago. They have impressed me enough that they will stay in the permanent rotation. Great detail without fatigue. They seem to work really well in my tiny room.
