Hi Lyndryguru,

Nice system.  I have the X5's which are phenomenal and was looking at getting back into vinyl but not wanting to spend too much money as I'm uncertain if I will go all in.  How do you like the Marantz?  It seems like a good value for the money and comes with a very good cartridge so I had that on my radar.

Thanks

I had the Marantz for a while.  Decent deck but I couldn’t tame the inner groove distortion.  Went to the vpi prime and I absolutely love it.  Quite a bit more than the Marantz but for me it was worth it.

For the money the Marantz is a great table, as  you noted the cartridge is quite considerable.  It is not without issues or limitations, as I have owned it for two years.  Would I buy it again, yes.  However, I will once the world returns to normal look to purchase a VPI as the table.

Nice Aniwolfe!  How do they sound?  How do they compare to the X Series?

Thanks! They sound incredible. Very clear and well balanced. They (X2's) sound much different than the TM's, as they should. I will say this, I have tremendous respect for the TM's. They were a more forgiving sounding speaker, that I could have lived with the rest of my audio journey. I really loved them.

You mean how do they compare to the Triodemasters? I have not heard the X3 or X5. A note as to why I didn't get the X3/5. I wanted an all passive speaker, as I did not want anymore powercords in my system  :nono: Plus the X2's to me are the coolest looking speaker on the planet.

Yes I meant the newer X Series.  I agree those are super cool aesthetically.

My third pair of Spatial Audio speakers.  Started with M3 Triode Masters, then X2s and now X3s which I like the best.

Secondary system that doesn’t get much use due to the location in house.  :?

Yes, 200 MKII. I sold it because it was way to hot for Florida. I got an Esoteric integrated - sounds really good with the X2 - better than the Rogers IMO. I moved the X2 into my smaller room and they sound sublime.

Very nice! I have a "spare" set of Silversmith Fidelium short ribbon jumpers which were specially made and used on a set of Spatial X2's. If you ever decide to try his cables, just let me know as they're sitting in a box.

paolocaminiti are you using a short throw projector? Trying to figure out how the speakers aren't casting a shadow on the screen.

Thanks Tom. I've looked at those and read a couple reviews. I'm pretty happy with the Duelund 'Dual' DCA12GA and 16GA for jumpers for now. I figure since the X2 are wired internally with Duelund that I would keep the rest of the speakers wire the same.

thx

Yes, it's a old xiaomi model. No shadows and works great. The speakers stand a bit in front of the lower half of the screen but it's not that bad as there is usually not much content in the lower corners. Used to live in a larger room, there had no problem at all.
