Calling all Accuphase owners

Audiofeil said.."And believe me, audiophiles with great systems aren't using Technics 1200 tables as their vinyl sources. Read some of the threads here; it's that simple."I'm an audiophile with a fairly decent system and guess what..I use a highly...

Recent equipment you hated, thought overpriced

Best type of stylus cleaner??
I'll second the recommendation of Stylast #5. Works very well in conjuction with a cleaning brush with the short tightly packed nylon bristles. Like the old SC-1 Discwasher brush or the up to date equivalents sold at various retailers.

ARS Emitter....I think I'm done.
