Long time no see... (all my fault)
A suggestion re planned new integrated:
Given that you've labelled your phono stage "Whisper", how about naming the new integrated "Bellow" or "Shout"?
Glad to see you're still beavering away (me too - retired in 2011, turned 70 10 days ago, and have only had a total of 6 months as unemployed since March 2011).
I spoke to Gert(rude) earlier today and asked him to provide me with your contact number as Micro$oft and their Win10 update successfully screwed up my Outlook contact details.
When he gets 'round to it, I'll give you a call.
All the best for 2016
