Sometimes I wonder if I'm missing the boat on the new hi-rez formats, but I can't imagine anything sounding much better than my analog front end. Congrats on dialing in your rig, it'll make you rediscover some gems in your music collection and bring the pleasure/joy back into the hobby. Record clamps ought to be considered mandatory, sure makes one helluva difference if I don't use mine that came as standard issue with my Oracle. Sounds like you're going to be really enjoying the holidays! Best, Jeff
Nice TT/arm/cartridge combo, very similar to mine. I have been very happy with the combo, but I've always used the reflex clamp. Did you just buy it, or was it sitting idle while you spun your discs?
I have a Sony SCD 777ES which plays SACD, and I still prefer the vinyl. I like the Sony, but the TT just sounds better. If they can keep up with the technology I do think it can sound as good if not better that vinyl,but they still have a ways to go...
Nrchy- I had put it away somewheres when I sold my old Sonographe, and could not find it. It galled me to pay big bucks for a clamp I knew I had hidden away, so I was using a cheapy I picked up on ebay. I have not yet even heard let along tried hi-res, but now I am going to have to be looking for LPs. I guess Borders is out!
If you're in the mood to mine one more collection of used LP's, Integrity 'n Music on the Silas Deane Hwy in Wethersfield has lots of jazz, R & B and country. Not much classical, don't know about rock/pop. You'll have to sift through the damaged junk, as usual, but they have lots of gems for $.99 per LP. Best of all, it's actually sorted in bins, not lying on the floor beneath piles of moth-eaten sweaters.
