What'd You Get For Xmas?
Lamm LP2, bought used from a friend of a friend getting divorced. He didn't mind taking a loss so long as "she doesn't get it".   
What'd You Get For Xmas?
@czarivey Miss my FJ60 and 62! Both times someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse  
Turntable upgrade recommendations: SME vs AMG vs Technics vs other
I would do the Kuzma Stabi R with a 4Point Arm. Best sounding arm I’ve ever heard. And the poster who suggested a wall shelf was right on! I’ve compared many tables on and off wall shelves and the difference is usually startling. Also I have to sa... 
Analog upgrade
That Lamm is so awesome except you still need a step up because the internal one is garbage. That said, they kinda do you a favor because matching an SUT to your MC cartridge is such a huge improvement from one size fits all.  
Any Harbeth users hear Fern and Roby Ravens?

Alternate screw down clamp for VPI Aries
Ok, wow. The stainless steel VPI clamp sounds so much better than the delrin clamp (I borrowed one and have been listening/comparing) that it's almost shocking. I know a clamp/weight should be a good idea but I'm amazed that I can hear such a clea... 
Record Cleaning Machines
You need to call Albert Porter at Porterhouse Audio. Before I bought my Degritter, he gave me the whole comparison. He is or was a dealer for all the top line ultrasonics. Without reservation, liked the sound of the Degritter the best. 
Are Lamm preamps hard on tubes?
Thank you @tomcy6 That's not what this post was about. I have been buying from Brent forever and he's one of the best humans in the business. Thanks to those who actually answered my question! Very helpful! Especially the part about cleaning the e... 
LYRA DELOS CARTRIDGE TOO BRIGHT, THIN AND SHRILL SOUNDING
I enjoyed one for years. Great synergy with the Well Tempered Amadeus.  
Is there a point of diminished returns with amps and Harbeth 30.1s?
I’ve never really understand the usefulness of blind tests. Do people actually know what they prefer in a short listening A-B session? It takes me a week of listening to determine if I like the sound of a component, unless it’s truly horrible or c... 
Is there a point of diminished returns with amps and Harbeth 30.1s?
Thanks @chayro! I’m plenty old and have been doing this for so long that I do know that. Also work tangential to the music business (feature film editor) and I have conversations with mixers and engineers all the time about how we all hear differe... 
Is there a point of diminished returns with amps and Harbeth 30.1s?
I have forgotten if some users have been banned for posting some issues they experience with their new speakers. Issues such as glue marks on the main driver and defects on cabinet etc. This is an interesting issue when you think about it. It’s to...

Completely agree yet this discussion is not about ‘routine’ amplifiers.
