This is my current setup for vinyl playback. The Manley Labs provides a microscope for the ear while the SS McIntosh provides the muscle that the Dynaudio Contour's really need. This system sounds powerful, detailed, beautiful, dynamic and lots of rhythmic drive.

For some reason the audiogon system builder will not let me edit and I wanted to add the speakers and some more pics. The speakers are Dynaudio and the sub is a REL B2.
