So this is probably a really stupid question!
OP, if your question is why can’t we create a single speaker that creates stereo like sound?my “lay” answer would be because stereo effect happens when the sound is coming from at least 2 different physical locations. So a single speaker alone can... 
Should I keep the Turntable or sell it?
Good to know about HIFI Heaven... they have a few open box items that could allow me to grab something slightly better that what I had [email protected] I am currently testing the Pro-Ject Classic with Blue Point No 2 (not BPS), and I feel like it is ...

Also, has anyone had any good or bad experiences with HiFi Heaven (hifiheaven.net)? They have a large number of display model and open box tables for sale.

@lewm what is BPS? Also, what have you directly experienced with an overseas dealer? There are a couple listed as demo/show models as well. Obviously, if I can save $500 on a table, I’m definitely going to try, but don’t know the overseas market. 
Reasonable high end interconnects: without breaking the bank
Has anyone on this thread conducted any Double Blind Testing of the cables in their system? You might be surprised at what you find sounds good, when you can’t see the beautifully designed "looks" of some of these interconnects.

@stereo5 me being snarky would look like...  “what’s your point?”me responding to an ambiguous statement looks like... “so, what’s your point or purpose of that statement?”The additional clarification, and extra effort, removes the “snark”... for ...

“Alfa” or “Alva”?Alfa Romeo = my carAudi = another car I ownedAlva TT = Cambridge Audio Alva TT Turntable that I sold😊

@robelvick have you heard the Sumiko Blue Point No 2 before or Ortofon Quintet Red? The Pro-Ject Classic SB comes with one of those carts based on who is selling it. I really like the look of The Classic, and obviously all of these tables are in t...

@robelvick I looked at the MH 7.3, and liked it for the Bronze. Having previously listed to a Red and a Blue Ortofon on my Pro-Ject, I would say I do like the Blue Ortofon sound a lot. There is a Clearaudio Emotion for sale here for $925, but has ... 
Should I keep the Turntable or sell it?
@stereo5 you would be 100% correct. The TT-15S1 is basically a “rebranding” if the Clearaudio Emotion. They slapped on the Marantz name because they “designed” it, but it’s still a clearaudio at heart.so, what’s your point or purpose of that state... 
Should I keep the Turntable or sell it?
@uberwaltz I have to disagree with you about the approach in this price range ($1500 package). And I have to remind you that I have always stated I am looking for the best turntable “package” currently, not the best options for latter upgrades. If... 
Should I keep the Turntable or sell it?
@analogluvr I would definitely agree with that statement... there are too many variables. But my original hypothesis still stands and aligns with your statement that cartridge plays a large role in the overall quality and character of the sound. S...

@best-groove 👍@analogluvr I have listened to the following tables on at least 2 occasions:Direct Drive:1. Higher end Technics - friend’s dad’s table 2. Cambridge Audio Alva TT - my own Turntable Belt Drive1. Pro-Ject Carbon Debut (Ortofon Blue 2M)... 
Should I keep the Turntable or sell it?
@tzh21y actually, I made a statement... and that statement was in regards to experts and professionals in the industry... the engineers that design and make the equipment we buy, or even an article or video from a renowned source. I can find hundr... 
Should I keep the Turntable or sell it?
@robelvick I thought long and hard about what I currently own, and neither table meets my needs. If the Alva TT had a straight Phono line out, I would definitely keep it. But I want to use my current tube phono preamp, which I can’t. I prefer tube...
