Well, the cart has been in the system now for a couple a days.  It took its sweet time getting here from Japan.  But definitely worth it.  Given its not insignificant price I was having some serious anxiety about potential buyers remorse.  I reall... 
Whizzer cone removal
I found that removing the whizzer had zero effect. Already employed the super tweeter when I did it. Adding the s tweeter added some more air and detail but it wasn’t a night and day difference. The driver in these was not what Decware uses now or...

@mijostyn thank you. I still haven’t received the cart. Lots of air and detail sounds good to me. Should be a good match to my sys. In theory anyway. Channel balance within .5db is really appealing as well as I’m sensitive to channel imbalances. S...

@soundwatts not yet, gotta ring Jay at AudioRevelation at some point today

I will be receiving my new cart soon. I decided to stop whittling around and go for it. The resistor mod I may still go after down the line. It was almost the Ortofon Cadenza Bronze, but after talking to my local dealer, I decided to go with the A...

I thought I’d post a follow up post if anyone is curious as to what direction I went. Being that the sound I hear in my head is oh-so-close, I reached out to Bill at LKV and he’s really interested in trying out the naked foil resistors. It’ll be s...

@edgewear I worked with Bill at LKV to get the gain at 47k up to wear it needed to be to support a 1mv output from my Statement Reference v.2 Didn't mean to imply it was dark and lifeless necessarily, it certainly is not that.  But, I want more ya...

@johnss I will look into this. I wonder if the designer would agree with you and not mind humoring me. Bill has been such a cool guy to go through this process with.  This could be a nice tweak to grab that "micro detail" that I know is there. I'm...

@tomic601 hey!, whaddya know, maybe there is more Grado fans than I thought! Grado’s there sure is something about them for that full bodied natural presentation(midrange?). Seems like you got some nice set-ups going. 2-votes Lyra. with Nagaoka co...

Hey all, johnss, my stage is I think a nice one, its the LKV-2sb.  Dual mono, outboard power supply, decent amount of gain for a lo-out cart. Usual options for loading and gain.  I'm not sure about changing that out, it'd be a pricier proposition.... 
What are you going to buy / download this season?
I picked up the Dead’s RSD release, “Playin In The Band”. Knock your socks off production /sound(wall of sound era) and the music(one song over both sides-45 minutes long), is pretty darn epic.  
Are you as OCD as this audiophile?
That was great I had no idea what he was talking about but I liked it. “A proper crossover or a mess.” Ya!  I think I’ll subscribe ocdhifiguy. I can relate somewhat sometimes I give people a glazed over face when I get going 
Best vinyl purchases based on pressing, studio production, sound quality and enjoyment.
I’m gonna come at this just a bit different in my suggestions based on my digging around like folkfreak suggested as a methodology. I have found anything by these guys to be excellent music and top fkn shelf sound. These are not rare birds but I g... 
Best MM?
Been running a Grado Statement v2 as of late and I just love it. Traded in an older Grado Ref. v1( started out way back with a Sonata) and it was only 1k for new one. I’m glad to see new v2 Grados get a mention here. I’ve often wondered if I was j... 
The new Synergistic Research BLUE fuses ....
Hey guys, should I put the fuse in my amp or the separate power supply for my phono pre. I have a volume control on my amp so no seperate preamp. Thanks.
