question for Luxman L-590AX owners
The hum issue seems to be fairly common with Luxman integrateds.  I have a 507ux and it also started humming a few years after I bought it.  The amp itself is dead quiet-no sound from the speakers-just from the unit itself.This issue has come up a... 
Technics 1200G VS VPI Prime Signature
I am very happy with my 1200G. I am a record collector and needed something that would play vinyl and shellac well. I use everything from ADC to Miyajima and Phasemation cartridges-the headshells vary depending on the application. I got a damper f... 
Mono vinyl, how do you know if really single channel mono or if stereo recorded to mono
@herman  Good choice to go to the top in buying a Miyajima Zero.  I have a Miyajima Premium and, even though it is maybe not a perfect match for tonearm, it sounds great.  Much better focus and tonality than using a stereo cartridge and a mono but... 
Latest Oppo"s selling for twice retail
@david_ten  Not a native speaker of Persian but I did speak that language during the many years I spent in South Asia.  I never heard the word "muck" used for foreigner.  Usual words were "khariji" or "ferangi".Consulting my Hobson Jobson dictiona... 
Why is there no love for Prima Luna?
Hmmm Prima Luna was formed by Kevin Deal (Upscale Audio) & Herman v an den Dungen of Durob Audio (Netherlands) in 2000. OK, I guess I should have said it is made in "collaboration" rather than "partnership" with the Chinese government.  Those ... 
Why is there no love for Prima Luna?
From what I have read online, most people seem pretty happy with their Prima Luna gear. Seems to be well made and supported by the US distributor. Prima Luna is made in the Cayin/Spark factory. Cayin/Spark is a subsidiary of Zhuhai Spark Electron...

Acoustic Zen vs Audio Sensibility interconnects
I think about a year or so ago.  Not really sure.  Definite improvement over the V2.   I was quite happy with the V2 though until I heard the V3. 
Acoustic Zen vs Audio Sensibility interconnects
Interesting question.  I am using two pairs of his phono cables only because I already had the V2 before I upgraded to his V3. Probably best to call to contact Steve at Audio Sensibility.  I spoke with him before I bought a power cord and phono ca... 
Acoustic Zen vs Audio Sensibility interconnects
I  have two pairs of silver Audio Sensibility phono cables, (V2 and V3). One is between my turntable and SUT, the other between the SUT and my phono pre.  They work much better than the old ZU/Audioquest I was using before.  Never used any AZ cabl... 
Put that in your pipe(s) and smoke it
I have had a couple of posts removed in the past two years.  Both mentioned that certain companies manufacture their components in factories owned directly by the Chinese government.  I  wasn't critical of the western companies who do this, only s...

Poor Fritz
LSA speakers to me are only one of the many soulless productions made in some factory (or factories) in China for the western market. One of the comments to the review cited  (by Mitchell M Tallen, third one down) was very eloquent regarding the l...
