Most hyped turntable, tonearm, and cartridge?
At Millercarbon:  best response that I have ever heard from you.  Turn tables are a mechanical nightmare.  Some love em, some don't; if you do then I'm happy for you. 
Amazon Ships Records in Plastic Now
Amazon, FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, TWITTER are all current examples of arrogance and greed on the part of the people in charge of these companies.  Such conduct is the reason why we have anti monopoly laws.  They will get more arrogant before they are cont... 
Still confused about clipping after reading all the articles.
First off Guys I am hesitant to get into this discussion because I won't be p/o of a back and forth argument.  However, in the interest of clarity, I refer you to this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipping_(audio) .    It provides a prett... 
Can I use 24 gauge speaker cable?
When I saw this discussion come up on my email, I thought great, let's see how thoroughly confusing some of these responses are going to be.  Well, I haven't been disappointed.  Assuming your question is a serious, although many of these guys are ... 
Offer / counter-offer? Audiogon rules
All you guys are entitled to an opinion, but there ought to be a rule for the site that everyone knows in advance or it is not a fair trading platform.  This should not be a questionable area, but a known and published set of rules.  Consider a hi... 
Looking for Linear Power Supply for my Mytek Brooklyn DAC. Suggestions?
The assumption that a piece of equipment that cost more than $2000.00 and has no more than $300.00 in parts needs a better power supply is offensive to me.  Yes, I know it happens, but it should not and a "better" supply could probably be had for ... 
Looking for an integrated amp around 4000 to 5000.
@tweak1 :  The really good news is EP is blowing out their remaining inventory as they are moving assembly from Texas to CA, I think. ARE THEY CRAZY, my prediction is that if they go into CA, they will be out of business in a year.  You can't smo... 
Visiting audio stores?
I have read through this entire thread and can't bring myself to add to the arguments presented because no one seems to listen to anyone who has a different outlook that they already have anyway.  i will only add one piece of information; namely t... 
Do any still use an older high end tuner from the past?....
Like some others, I have, and still occasionally use a LUXMAN ( TX 101 ).  It does require a decent antenna and this can sometimes be hard to set-up in an indoor environment.  The problem is, as others have pointed out, there is almost no quality ... 
Considering going back to Solid State
Apologies for the rush job above, left out the mag:   Sterophile issue Feb 2020. 
Considering going back to Solid State
Based upon what you have said, I would recommend that you read the recent review of the new Pass Labs INT-25 ($7250.00). It is an interesting article and Herb Reichert calls it his "new solid state reference." 
Linda Ronstadt: The Sound Of My Voice
I remember that I was trying to decide if I should buy a CD player back in the dawn of history, when I went to my local Macintosh dealer for a hearing.    Her CD "Whats New"  was playing on a $400 Yamaha player and I made the decision to buy bot... 
Wadia being sold for a third of it's retail
One of the things that this sale shows you is the outrageous mark up some of these upscale companies have over their actual construction cost. An analog to digital converter does not cost that much to design and build.  If you believe that your fa... 
If I want a bookshelf system this good, what should I buy?
If you like the Schitt amp, then I would stay with as much of their gear as fits your use.  Their stuff is most likely to work together well.  You can also, ask them for suggestions on other gear and their return policy is supposed to work well.Le... 
My stereo receiver is a little too bright. Can a cable help me out?
KISS!As others have said, try your tone controls. Start with a little bit up on the base and listen for a few minutes, then add a little bit down on the treble. Listen for ten minutes and walk away. Come back and make an adjustment.  Make small ad...
