Nice, brings back memories. I owned a SP10 in the late 80's. Very versatile preamp but needs low noise tubes. Wish I didn't sell it.

Thanks BRF. I retained my SP 10 even when I got the SP 11 because there is something in its sonic's that's absent in the SP11 .Maybe because of the sheer no. of tubes it has even in its P.S.

I guess the sound difference between the two preamps can be attributed to an all tube design vs a hybrid tube design. I had my SP10 paired with a Classic 60.

Other than the Sp10, we have something else in common. I own 2010 997 C4GTS. To most, those will be just numbers.

There's probably a lot of audiophile's who are Porsche owners as Harry Belafonte concert in Carnegie Hall said in the song Matilda "I know your out there'

Nice car 997 C4GTS . As they say" there are no old Porsche's only new one's ".

How&why do you use your Michel Orbe these days - & in what config ? I sold mine after I bought an SSM Ref.

(Once had a polite disagreement with a Porche owner at a party. We eventually agreed he enjoyed driving at 120+ mph and feeling like he was doing 80 or so. I enjoyed doing 80 or so and feeling like I was doing 120+. We didn't discuss hifi.)

I seldom use the Michell GyroDec w/ the Orbe upgraded platter ,since I started acquiring VPI Tables w/c started w/ the HW 19 JR then the HW19 MK4 ,TNT MK2.5 and finally a TNT MK 6. I had the Michell GyroDec since 1986 when I was in med school given to me as a gift by my father for good grades. I made a lot of upgrades in order for it to perform as good as my TNT MK 2.5 .Im also using this Michell w/ the VPI SDS w/c made it quieter/silent than using the original Michell P.S. Its has sentimental value in my case but since its not getting use as often I'm now selling my Michell in order to get another VPI turntable. If budget permits maybe I can acquire an HRX in the near furture. Then I will be set for life having both the TNT MK 6 & the HRX.

The Michell is used w/ a Kuzma Stogi REF tonearm w/ a VTA KIT and a Benz Micro ACE SL. Its use in my second system ,ARC SP10 MK2 , ARC EC 21 Electronic Crossover , a pair of ARC D79B's and Magnepan MG 3A's.

Nice car the Morgan Plus 8 a true sports car.
