Are the earlier Level 42 records from the 80’s worth anything?

Re: Mixing things up.. non Linn speakers?

A lot of options out there (Spendor, Klangedang, Neat etc.).

I'm tempting to try a very low-budget speakers (Mission LX-2, 180 €) and compare them to my mod. M109 ...

After a couple of months and more than 100 hours I can confirm that the Slipsik 7 is a step forward the Slipsik 6 and the upgrade worths every penny. There is more of everything, more musical, more coherent at low volume, more bass extension. In particular, the bass is spectacular, my mod. 109 seems...
