Good MM cart for AS-212s
Raul, The Sumiko EVO looks interesting! It's output of 2.5 is what the referenced output of the 5650 phono stage.  
Good MM cart for AS-212s
Thanks for all this great info!! I appreciate the mass calculation it makes things more clear. I think the Nagaoka's or Audio Technica's look good. The AT's give me the most choice and seem to be in the range of compliance. I think trying to find ... 
Service Suggestion
Thanks Oregonpapa! I have used Tom awhile back. While he is great, Simi Valley is a bit far for me, as I have an injury. I might just wait and use him because his knowledge of vintage gear is awesome and he's good at what he does. I would like to ... 
Which vintage direct drive?
Sorry for the long delay, injury kept me away. I've decided to mod a Dual 721. It's a brushless DD that is more reliable than most and very simple design with excellent measurements. I will make a plinth and pair this with the Terminator tonearm. ... 
Which vintage direct drive?
I like all these suggestions and advice. Most of the models I listed were 100v Japanese models I realized. I like the idea of the vintage coreless/brushless DD, they seemed to have evolved into developing a more mature drive system. One of the thi... 
Which vintage direct drive?
I just learned that the TT-01 is the Japanese version and the JVC-QL10 is the American one. Is there an issue with using a step-up transformer with a direct drive? 
Music Reference RM-200
sorry for all the typos and missing grammar 
Music Reference RM-200
I picked up the RM-200 recently from a local seller for $1500. I'm not sure if the tubes were originally from Roger because none of them have the Ram Labs print on them. They came with Gold Lion KT88's, which I know that your Clio and Roger sell. ... 
Music Reference RM-200
Thanks for the help and clarification. I thought both versions were rated class A. This other person thinks that it's only the mk2 version and he thinks I'm intentionally misleading. I'm sure they sound different but that doesn't mean they both ar... 
Music Reference RM-200
Thanks for the reply, but I should have clarified, I meant "Stereophile Class A" rated.  
2A3 Tube Opinions
@verdantaudio Thanks a bunch!! I will try them and hopefully they will be cool with. I don't mind paying them a fee (reasonable fee).  
2A3 Tube Opinions
Reviving this thread. I just got two (well three but I dropped one and it was damaged) 2a3 tubes from a swap meet. One is a RCA/Cunningham mono black plate and the other is dual box plate Raytheon. Are these good 2a3's? Is there a place in Los Ang... 
Does anyone care to ask an amplifier designer a technical question? My door is open.
Hi Roger,I own your RM-10mkii, which is a mysteriously addictive amp. How did you approach low-frequency response? I ask because the bass the amp produces is punchier than any 100-watt solid state I've owned.I have zero knowledge of electronics, s... 
Klyne + Aleph 5
Thanks for the help and the insight. The Aleph arrived sooner than expected. Even though it is not running balanced, I'm getting a taste of the sound. I'll have to hear more and get an assessment of what I like. I will avoid the Canare's because I... 
Yamamoto A-08s and preamp CA-04
Did you order direct or through another site? Just curious because it's on my list of future gear. Cool combo! I hope you like it.
