Soundlab speakers with sub woofers?
Keith, subs aren't woofer towers, they're there to enhance the low and very low frequencies, you can't use them for easing speaker placement. Subs will add to the complexity, they have their own placement and setup requirements that must be taken ...

Soundlab speakers with sub woofers?
I'm sorry Bob_reynolds but none of subs you suggested come even close to Soundlab's B1 or B1S. None of them will properly integrate with Soundlab panels, they don't have the resolution and you're stuck with their crappy built in amps. Once you get... 
Long cable run from my phono preamp to linestage.
Don't worry about it 4 meters is nothing with most cables, I have 6-8 meter runs between the phono and pre for years. david 
Soundlab speakers with sub woofers?
Good luck Keith!david 
Soundlab speakers with sub woofers?
You're welcome Keith. They had 2 or 3 different electrostatic subs, the large one matching the A1 was the B1 and its fantastic. In all honesty A1+B1 would be my choice speaker system if I could use the Lamm SETs with them and I didn't have the Bio... 
Audio Technica ART9 cartridge
Hi Pani,Sorry, I missed your question, I don't get email replies forwarded to my account.Right not I have AT ML170 and the AT33PTG/II set up on a table, but I have other AT cartridges sitting in the cabinet waiting their turn.david 
Soundlab speakers with sub woofers?
A few years back I heard an A1 system with Soundlab's subs, don't remember the model name but the sound was extremely impressive and musical. Don't know if they're still making them but its worth looking for a pair of their low frequency panels.david 
Add a step-up or Upgrade
Buy the Manley or other quality tube phono, there are other sonic advantages that a tube phono pre has over ss.david 
Bass trapping - corners or walls?
I haven't read their other articles nor do I have any direct experience with their products but what they say in this one regarding standing waves and the need for whole room treatment is true. Treating only one end of the room isn't enough. Of co... 
Help me buy a Garrard
This is a rare thread on Audiogon where almost all everyone is in agreement. Seeing the no. of mods available for Garrards I thought that I'd be alone in not liking any of them. Pani, it depends on the condition of the unit being restored, some ne... 
Does JBL get a bad rap?
Wolf_garcia, don't know which JBL monitors you had in your studio but I remember the shitty 70's solid state electronics well it was all boom & tizz. There's no shortage of crappy recordings from the 70's as a reminder of the period and I've c... 
Does JBL get a bad rap?
I would say that there's a lack of knowledge rather than a bad rap. The two audiophile rags here chose to ignore JBL in favor of boutique manufacturers, even when they had clearly inferior products. Even the current Everest which is an engineering... 
Help me buy a Garrard
Hi Pani,I see I have a few typos from autocorrect, sorry about that it was late at night when replied and missed them.I've bought and sold many Garrards in the past. Sonically there isn't much difference between the oil and grease bearings but the... 
Spacing req. for SpendorSP100 and for JBL L300
L300 is better of the two, both more musical and more than dynamic. I'm surprised regarding your comment that it can't play classical music as well as the Spendors, did you hear them both in the same system?Ideally you need to place either speaker...
