    Mike-

    Ayre sounds really good with SF in my (limited) experience. No feedback design, but will drive the impedance (and tough phase angle) well- yes the amp is a hair dry, but this complements the SF well. Coupled with a tube preamp, might be dynamite. It has a megaohm input impedance, so any tube preamp in the world is your oyster.

    For p/p tube, you have very good amps in the Phi 200s. Maybe tube roll the KT88s some more with the new speaks? EAR would be my next recommendation. The 890- but it needs to be retubed. Relatively inexpensive too. TDP amps aren't stale sounding.

    Jadis and Zu is a poor combo from what Roy Gregory says, so I never tried it. It's very warm though, so perhaps not a good match with Strads. I've also heard of repair issues in the past and they seem to rotate distributors regularly.

    I'm also going to focus on the Shindo that I do have and try to maximize my system. Inspiration:

    That's just a thin DIY job that is somewhere between leather and suede. The A23 mats seem cool. I might email Matt about one of those, but I just ordered another Mr. T and and emt tsd15.

    Chris- Do you like the $250 A23 Homage mat better than the $100 A23 mat ?
    I have the latter on both of my tables.... Cheers -Don

    Yeah I think so. I have only had it for a week or so. I got my new speakers at the same time so it is tough to evaluate at this point. I may A/B at some point.

    What is the A23 mat?

    I had gm70's with Sonus Faber speakers. Sounded quite good but the sound became effortless when swapped for the petite latours.
