Ok, so I mounted the Shelter yesterday........
Hey Oz. I have also heard or read that the 501 was bass shy and like TWL's experience,I found it to be the exact opposite, a bit lumpy on the bottom end ,not really bass heavy just a little too much bloom.Unfortunately... it took a good 40 hours o... 
ET 2 Owners - feedback please
Hi Squidboy. I went to walmart and bought an automotive air tank and simply changed the fittings to accomodate the air hose from the pump to the tank.Then threaded an industrial air regulator valve to regulate the air out to the tonearm.Total cost... 
ET 2 Owners - feedback please
Hello. I also use the ET-2 with a homemade surge tank and feel that the surge tank is a very worthwhile upgrade,offering better dynamic range and focus to the sound.Precision set up is imperative with most any table/arm combination but it is of pa... 
Which speaker is the master of IMAGING ????
Sean. Interesting comment on JML and focal drivers.Every JML speaker I have heard has a distinctive sonic signature that's recognizable throughout their entire speaker line.Funny... how other speakers employing that driver sound so much better.I h... 
Wright WPL20 or WLA20A ???
Hello Ken.You have a wonderful system!The wright line stage is the wpl 12a,the wpl-20 is basically the same line stage coupled with a phono stage.A good friend uses an identical system as yours with[shearwater hotrods].He aquired the wright preamp... 
Preamp Deal of the Century
Any of the supratek preamps that I have seen 4 sale on the GON seem to sell "immediately" at full retail or close to it [depending on condition]and rightly so.I for one...cerainly would have purchased one on the GON if given the opportunity- just ... 
EAR 834 vs. ARC PH-3?
Hello Semi. I have to concurr with the recommendations of both Marakanetz and Rec.However... I will be a little more blunt and to the point regarding the comparison. The PH-3 is far superior in "every" way and if it was my donero's... the choice b... 
MFA Luminescence MC Reference preamp
Hi Mike.I would have to concurr with Kana as well.No miniature triode based preamp I have ever heard seems to capture the "soul" of the music quite like a well designed octal tube preamp.I have owned the CAT sig mk2,various versions of Audio Resea... 
Best of both worlds?
Hi Leeph. Glad I could be of some help. This is interesting to me as well as I too use 15 inch Tannoys. Cheers 
MFA Luminescence MC Reference preamp
Hello Mike. As an owner of a luminenscence, a few things should be addressed if you are thinking of acquiring one.First:If your system is biased toward vinyl; as mine is,retubing becomes a very important issue as the currently made octal based tub... 
Best of both worlds?
Hi Leeph. the paradigm servo 15 is a very good sub, however the x-30 crossover is rather mediocre at best and in my opinion defeats the purpose.I believe the sf-1 has 2 pairs of outputs. You can run 1 pair to your amp for the main speakers and use...

Hi Gang.Interesting response by fiddler about ac power.What is AH? Cheers. 
"HELP" tired Koetsu
Geez Gang.Never even new this forum existed until today! I just discovered the equipment thread that you guys/girls have logged in. Twl... What is this Studer dc power converter thing? 
"HELP" tired Koetsu
Twl. I have to agree with your assessment on tracking,however;when the 103c was introduced,the fr-64 arm was[and still is] one of the best suited tonearms on the market for that particular cartridge.When you think back to the late 70s,there really... 
"HELP" tired Koetsu
Maxgain. Your wood grado should not be noisey.As a matter of fact I think they are very quiet.Does the noise sound like surace noise, phono gain noise or white noise?
