I've got my X-10D in between my DLC and Class D amplifiers to sweeten things a bit, but I'm interested in a Tube line-stage...

It's crazy, we talk about getting to the truth of the performance, but we have zero control over the recording and mastering of it.
I gave this a listen the other day, and it's wild how much difference a mic can make...

I'm definitely into tubes. I haven't heard a phono stage without them yet that I'd take over my current one with them.
