    With my RP8 (model was replaced about a year ago with the Planar 8, and next to top of the line 10 models) I did use an Ortofon 2M Black & Bronze which worked well (I did not use any shims). I stepped up to the Rega Aria Pro which is a breeze since...

    I have not spent much time with it yet with the Maggie's. I did own one in the past and it was a good amp. The Son of Ampzilla II was a co-design between James and EJ. EJ owns the SST company now along with Wyred 4 Sound, Carver and others.
