    Once you buy the LT and get your system up and running just tell me Ron. I will lend you the Opus1. Just pay for the freight and don’t be so clumsy.

    I do not have a Shroeder LT but I do have a Shroeder Model 2, and I mounted a Goldfinger Statement on it before. This plus a Graham Phantom 2 are what I listen to the most. With Model 2 the sound was warmer and with much better and fuller bass than Phantom 2. The warmness added density and texture, but not to the extent of mellowing out treble like MY Sonic Hyper Eminent (also in my collection). First impression after mounting the Goldfinger Statemen on Model 2 was how smooth and non-mechanical the sound was. Through Phantom 2, sound was faster and more agile, but also thinner and brighter. Orchestral and vocal more suitable through Schroeder and Jazz and pop more suitable through Graham.
    Obviously my Model 2 is not as expensive as LT so please take my listening notes with a grain of salt...
