I was staggered at how good those JBLs sounded playing tape; so fast, immediate, dynamic - hats off to Greg Timbers.

I read it. Thanks !
Being a sort of mid 20th century human myself, I think I would be more than happy with that system. I heard the Luxman tube gear a couple of shows ago and remember liking it. I imagine I would like the JBLs as well. Their nice stuff always did sound good to me. There was someone, Zu, I think, using a classic top of the line Luxman table at this year's  show. And a classic deck, tweaked out, playing Tape Project tapes is beyond anything available in the 70s unless you had actual master tape access back then.
Only thing is, that even in relative dollars, the cost of all of that is probably higher than it was for the 70s equipment in 70s dollars.
But, sure, I could live happily with all of that equipment.

you don't want to know what equipment I listen to...
