I have a replacement copy on the way. Hopefully this was a dud.

geof3:Thanks, maybe mine is a bad apple. I will look into it. orpheus10:It is a hit or miss I agree and most of the albums I obtain are decent to great, i.e. my recently purchaesd Valarie Joyce New York Blue is one of the finest sounding albums/re...

audiosaurusrex:Glad you found it useful. I just wanted to save at least one person the money and aggravation.  To be fair one of my buddies just told me he had two copies he thought the one he sourced from the UK was great while the one he got her... 
Ultrasonic washers and softer sound?
spatialking:Hi, glad you found the posting helpful. The only fluids I have ever used are the Spin Clean and Disc Dr. products. I find that the KLAudio works perfectly well with simply distilled water as is the recommendation via the company for th... 
Record Cleaning Machine – Recommendation Please!
I was in the market for a new RCM and thought I was going to purchase the Clearaudio Double Matrix Professional Sonic. One of the dealers I do business with carries the line and I had a chance to try it out on several albums. It is built incredibl... 
ifi iPhono 3 "Black Label" Anyone?
The Zen is crazy good! I have 232 hours on it and I purchased another iPhono X.  I mean seriously $250.00 for the stage and the far better iPower X.., smh. I’m thinking of putting together a TT package with the Zen as a Christmas gift to my brothe...

jtsnead: Glad you’re enjoying the unit, it’s going to get better with usage.cardani:I agree with everything in the very well done review. I don’t know how many hours he had on his unit. My unit has 75 hours at this point and I’m not listening agai... 
ifi iPhono 3 "Black Label" Anyone?
Just got the Zen Phono. I’m not going to say too much until I have about 250 hours on it (it’s breaking in 24/7 as I type) but I will say it surprised me quite a bit right out of the box. I’ve never heard a stage so low in cost sound anything like... 
ifi iPhono 3 "Black Label" Anyone?
I am not a fan of SMPS’s as I’m sure many on this forum are aware. I generally believe they are a scourge to anything hi-end audio related and I have made this point many times on this forum :) I found the SBooster to be better than every other SM...

jtsnead:Hi, I’m not sure of the question you’re asking me. If it’s about gain, I can tell you that my MC Anna (0.2mv) works fantastic with the iPhono3 at 60dB of gain and it is DEAD quiet as in digital-like quiet.I have owned the SBooster before a...

Rooze:Hi, I do listen to the 3 for extended periods with no issues. I’m not sure what you mean by “drama” as it plays my slow melodic smoky female jazz albums as well as my bombastic albums. I find that the 3 does in fact breathe like the best of ... 
ifi iPhono 3 "Black Label" Anyone?
After extended listening I’ll go on record and call this thing reference caliber. Yes my tube based units do some things better (the things tubes do) such as interstitial continuity in the overall gestalt but then the IPhono3 counters (in the case... 
Problem(s) with new Klaudio LP200S ultrasonic cleaner - Any other owners?
When I wrote: “After I repositioned everything I noticed it DOES continually drain the water as it pumps in new water.”I was not indicating a problem such as a pinched drain hose. I was simply indicating that the reservoir was relocated to an area... 
Problem(s) with new Klaudio LP200S ultrasonic cleaner - Any other owners?
I was WRONG! After I repositioned everything I noticed it DOES continually drain the water as it pumps in new water. This is absolutely the correct behavior and I was glad to find it works this way as the drained water goes back into the original ...
