Anyone have this turntable issue?
If your mute is actually working then it is most likely a high static discharge. 
Anyone have this turntable issue?
My London Reference is very sensitive to landing and lift-off from the record and it has nothing whatsoever to do with static. I’ve seen this lead in pop noise also with my modified Denon 103.3 and it seems to happen more so with newer albums wher... 
Anyone have this turntable issue?
Try this, and it may seem simple. Move the stylus to the lead-in groove and before you lower it, move it just enough such that it touches down after the music has been cut into the vinyl. In other words, try lowering the stylus anywhere on the rec... 
Best USB port on a late 2012 Mac mini
Most likely yes and my best advice to you is to find a track you are really familiar with and play about 20-30 seconds of it across all the ports. Listen for the best presentation. This is what I literally do with everything, ifor me it’s the only...

solypsa:You are so very correct.

fsonicsmith:Hi, ok based on what you are saying it appears that your brake may just be set a bit high. This should not be an issue. I was under the impression that when you turned it off a 26 lb platter came to an abrupt and immediate halt. If it ... 
Ana Mighty Sound 103.3
Just a quick follow up on this cartridge. I had a chance to listen to the Ana Mighty Sound 103.3 on a replinth’d Technics SP10 R with a Schroeder CB-L arm. I was shocked, Chris of Artisan Fidelity was shocked. I even wrote François to tell him I f...

fsonicsmith:Ah-ha, I missed this the first time I read your response:“At least on my 301, the platter will not spin freely-the idler wheel-mine is the Audiosliente btw-is always engaged against the inside platter rim. ”This is the culprit! I don’t...

fsonicsmith:Hi, all that noromance has stated is true. Having said (written:) that, I’m at a loss for why your platter is immediately coming to a stop. The break will slow it down but even with the stock platter which weighs what, say 5-6 lbs if m...

noromance:I checked out your system profile. I love your man cave. I bet you’ve got good sound. Also I noted your a Decca fan :) I also have a London Ref in my stable and its on my 401 at this time on a Jelco. Trying to figure out if it will work ...

noromance:You’ll notice that the platter will spin more freely thus faster when going from the stock bearing to a Kokomo or any other better bearing. If everything else is mechanically up to spec, you will most likely need to turn the breaking pow...

noromance:Concerning the Kokomo, the answer is no. It has been redesigned and now has a polymer fly-disc that sits between the ceramic ball and spindle face. It is so far beyond the stock old style bearing with its mandatory flat-spot :) that its ...

Noromance:I see. I love the 401, it is a no fuss awesome sounding table when it is correctly sorted. I prefer it to my former GAE primarily because I can easily change arms and there is no SMPS to deal with. The first order of business with these ...

noromance:I noticed when I responded to you auto correct rearranged your moniker to “no romance” which I found funny based on the specifics of the exchange :)Interesting that you you have one of his tables as well, may I ask what model ?

no romance:This is how misinformation gets started. A.F. does not use anyone else’s chassis. They designed and have their own billet chassis made for them at their shop. I’ve been to the shop and Chris’s home more times than I can count.They did d...
