VPI unipivot tonearm and AS Smart Tractor
The vertical adapters did the trick. Should have followed the sage advice - RTFM!   
Strange looking vinyl
Lighter fluid ! Very aggressive.  Since the record is basically unplayable I was thinking of trying out some solvents to see if any would remove the film without destroying the vinyl completely, not very hopeful. 
Backup Generator transfer switch
I have nothing against the guy (Fremer) in fact I find him funny at times, but I was thinking along the lines as audio2design mentioned that could this be a plug for a rather expensive piece of gear? Perhaps the careful placement of mpingo discs w... 
Backup Generator transfer switch
I have a similar ATS, although mine is in the basement right next to the panels not outside. Fremer does add towards the end of his last article in Stereophile that it could have something to do with having over $800,000 dollars of a system (some ... 
Backup Generator transfer switch
What cleeds did is exactly what Fremer is having done - setting up another circuit for his audio bypassing the transfer switch.  
Moving tube equipment
I've already rolled the tubes so I have all the boxes labeled and marked amp serial number position etc. This is just what I'm trying to avoid for this short move. Plus I always feel every time you handle a tube the chance for the whoops moment. ... 
Moving tube equipment
I have to admit after that first troll like response which again caused me to remember why I generally never post on forums the rest have been useful and humorous as well thanks to all ! We all need a smile at the moment !  
Moving tube equipment
I should have left the "lazy" part and I am sincerely sorry for stating that and then starting a thread about it!!!My plan was to pack them in their original boxes with some type of material (bubble wrap, peanuts etc) to prevent any movement, put ... 
Audio Desk Pro Cleaner
Wonder what happened to my washer ? Quality control.  In any event I love the thing and find it does an excellent job cleaning records although I would not put a grungy garage find in it - for that I would use my VPI first then the Audio Desk.  Al... 
Pre-amp causing loud hiss from speakers
Wanted to add an update to this: I found a Brent Jesse on these forums and contacted him, he felt it could very well be the 6922's in the BAT causing the issue. I purchased four tubes from him, checked just to make sure the issue had not resolved ... 
La Scala II problem
All very true, but for the dealers benefit he merely delivers the product still intact. These are tested at the factory. I'm sure that if I wasn't so inpatient the dealer would have eventually come out to repair. I did pull the back cover off as i... 
Pre-amp causing loud hiss from speakers
Just some updates - the balanced cables I was using were Transparent Audio Balanced Musiclink plus. As for the tubes in the BAT they were purchased from Upscale Audio - 4 Electro-harmonix 6922 and 2 Pope 6V6GT. I will spend some more time this wee... 
Pre-amp causing loud hiss from speakers
That's what I noticed as well, I thought the situation would get worse with the CJ not better. I did re-tube the BAT awhile back I will detail the tubes I put in tomorrow - perhaps there are better tube choices. 
Pre-amp causing loud hiss from speakers
I suppose I could use the Conrad Johnson with the Rogue's as for whatever reason that combo producing no noise and leave the BAT's with the Quicksilvers and go back and forth as I wish.... 
Pre-amp causing loud hiss from speakers
The interconnects are from Transparent Audio probably about 10 years old. I really want to try to make this work before heading back to the dealer.
