Just an update - the Outlaw RR2150, M80's, speaker wire, and USB cable have appeared and been hooked up. Sadly it was the cable that took longest - 7 days from Monoprice. Seems like UPS made a fine mess of it, claiming weather. Even though the rest of the gear came 2+ days earlier ordered the same day.

Anyway, it all sounds great. The 80's definitely sound deeper than my 60's, or they do paired with the RR2150. The highs seem more exposed for lack of a better word. I'm not sure if it's the acoustics of the room but I feel like the middle is a little lost right now. I may have to fiddle a bit. There's of course plenty of chance to play now - upstairs, downstairs, both receivers, analog versus the current USB connectivity, windows kernel streaming with foobar, etc. The 80's in the Mansfield Beech look great.

Keep us updated, and your term for the highs is pretty accurate.

I'm starting to wonder if the difference was Itunes in osx. I switched things over to windows & foobar (which I run in the basement) and the middle seems to have reappeared. From all the research, there seems to be varying opinion on how much itunes is affecting audio, but it the difference seems audible here.

Funny, I had visions of switching to itunes because it was "easier", but the reality is it's almost more of a pain in the a**. With foobar I'm 2-3 clicks away from playing anything. Not as pretty, but I guess I've been using it long enough to be used to it now.

buy the new Technics MK2 turntable, its a dj turntable, but h as a great audiophile tonerm, dr=irect drive, als weighs about 30 pounds, and is reliable for about 20 years at least, i have had mone for 11 years now, and NOT ONE PROBLEM!!! its the best out these. but no automatic return its all manual. and i use an ortofon x5-mc cart for amost everything, i use the oprtofon nightclub e for my metal lps as it has a 7 for the output and the bass and EVERYTHING is loud and tight, what a sound from vinyl, plays better than about al;l my cds!!! there is no sub for vinyl, the warmth, airy-ness, mood it creates is astounding, especially older metal, it is just the law
