BEST FEMALE VOCAL EVER
"A fantastic singer, i believe, unmentioned here was Keely Smith, one of the best natural singers ever. "If I didn't mention her; I should have. I inherited just one of her albums with Louis. The vinyl is far from Virginal; but good enough to appr... 
Owner of "Anticables" and dealer for Spatial Audio is an amazing guy
Where the hell does this guy live? I'd like a free dinner. But then I'd feel obligated to buy something. 
Turntable
I am really partial to Oracle Alexandrias and they can be found, used of course, for amazing bargains. One has to be careful about tonearm matching with suspended decks. I am using a rewired Sumiko Premier MMT which sounds  pretty damn good to me.... 
Do any of these interest you at all? (If you had the money)(Which I don't)
just spend your entire speaker budget on the best Canton speakers you can afford. 
Funny thing happened after my neighbor moved.
I have no noise issues that I can detect. I use no power conditioning. Maybe it's snake oil or maybe it's just not necessary where I live and how I wired my house when I built it. Yes, I mean my family and I built it from the ground up and I wired... 
Denon DP-60L vs Technics 1200 MK III
If anyone is still subscribing to this thread, how would the DP-1200 or DP-1700 stack up to the other models mentioned here? I've been a belt user all my life and would like to try a fun DD as my second table. 
Rega arm vs Sumiko
Wait a minute @kiko65 , you never said Beltcher designed the Sota table. You said he designed the MDC 800. I believe he designed both but you guys are starting to confuse me. ;^)Any way, I have the MMT on an Oracle Alexandria III, which is a suspe... 
Herbie’s Super Black Hole CD Mat - Wow!
"  I have since found that the Walker Talisman demagnetizer to be a superior and elegant product to use on every disc, CD and LP, with obvious benefit to every CD I play. Sure, it over $200 for a pair of magnets but "$11 a pair https://smile.am... 
My new cartridge sounds like a broken record
I don't want to insult you; but have you looked parallel to the LP to make sure the Goldring is not bottoming out on small warps. Does it require a different VTA than your other cartridges?Other than that, I agree that you should get it replaced b... 
Need a SACD DVD player on a low budget.
My first SACD player was an Oppo DV 980H. I paid $86 and it hooked me on SACD/DVD/HDCD players. I also discovered that quite a few of my "CDs" were also HDCD encoded, if that's the right word.I upgraded to a BDP-95 for $450 and it was a nice step ... 
Phono Preamp
Can't make a statement about a phono-pre without knowing the cartridge your using. 
Most annoying song, period.
“1877-cars for kids...”. There.  Get THAT out of your head. +!+!+!+1+1+1.......... 
Does your system hate you when you ignore her?
@erik_squires  and @reubent , My amp is a Class D and I did have it totally powered [email protected], There are cheap women. ;^)@noromance , Daddy long-legs don't weave webs; but I get the point.To all: Truly I am the variable in many ways, but I didn't ... 
Top vintage receivers vs. modern high-end equipment
Look into Nakamichi. I have a Receiver 2 which is amazing. The Receiver 1 at 80 watts would be even better. Both have great MM phono stages; but they are early '90s, not '80s.The TA series from the 1980s designed by Nelson Pass was legendaryhttp:/... 
Things that make you go, "Hmmmmm...."
I have an EVS modified Oppo BDP-105D, an Ayre C5xe-MP and even an ancient Oppo DV-983H. I targeted and searched for all 3 of these models and had to wait quite a while until I found used ones on the market that weren't almost the same cost as new....
