My local dealer has a pair of Nero Black 7T's. Agreed they are real lookers, very elegant. Just make sure you keep your hands off. They really pick up fingerprints. White gloves are needed. :)

The dynavector will give you more air at the top and IMO is quieter. The Ortofon has a more detailed top. Both are nice just depends on what flavor you like. If your speakers have a open top the...

Good luck w/those amps. Make sure you give a report on how they run your B&W's. By the way are you getting amp stands w/those Classe's?? You'll need them. :)

I owned a Dialogue 3 pre amp a few years back when I owned a pair of Thiel 2.3's. They make great dependable equipment. The one you own sounds great w/a set of Gold Lion KT-88's. You'll have a lot of...

Pretty much a classic setup. The Classe amps should get the most out of your 802's. I've heard that combo at my local dealer many times it will give you lots of punch w/no strain. The B&W's love...
