"Why are all 3 turntable based? I would have loved to see one CD/streaming system. "

Visit your local HMV, there is a mass of records, hardly any CD's, vinyl has beaten the poly carbonates, just as Linn's Ivor predicted when CD was introduced.

I agree with the comment regarding streaming though. My sources now are a Pink Triangle turntable and a Roon endpoint, controlled via my iPad, iPhone or PC.

CD still outsells vinyl.
Yes CD's may out sell LP's but so does pop music. Bell curve popularity is not what is at the heart of top grade sound. Although, some CD's are top quality, and more CD's should be mastered better. I have a Marantz CD 6006, it could be higher performance, but the "romance" I am having with vinyl has caused me to go for a top cartridge and stylus on my turntable instead of a $5K CD player. The turntable system I have is about $1k. And I get great sound from the over priced LP's I buy... Miles Davis etc.
