I received the Atlantic last Friday and have been running it constantly. It has settled in nicely. Since I'm not very good at audiophile descriptions I'll liken it to light coming in from an open window - natural, balanced. Compared to light through a glass window - distorted, with artificial intensity. I've always wondered if digital ever could be more than a letdown from analog... it's telling that I haven't played LPs since the Atlantic arrived!
As far as the Regen, I wanted to keep it in place, just to eliminate another signal change to compare the Esoteric and the Lampizator. In the coming days I'll pull it out to determine what I prefer and will report back.
