The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
@johnah5  sonically what separates the new 5.5 and the #8? They are relatively close in price. I’m curious as to what would prompt one to select one vs the other.  
Technics SL-1210G Headshells, Record Weights, and Mats
@badgerdms  I have been very curious about the Origin Live weight. All the layers of wood to absorb vibrations and such makes sense to me. I may take the plunge.  
Phono cable not caps to le with preamp?
@ghdprentice ​​@lewm got home and swapped cords again. I get sound from both outputs. Playing with the ground alters the tone of the buzz a little bit that’s it. old phono preamp back in and quiet as a tomb.   seems like sloppiness here but I... 
Phono cable not caps to le with preamp?
@lewm it’s a buzz. Like overdriven guitar sort of. I put the old phono back in (Andover SpinStage) and it’s dead silent again.   ill play with it tonight and see what I can glean from it. I’m in touch with the importer as well.   edit: forgot... 
Phono cable not caps to le with preamp?
I just had a thought. Since the phono and power supply are in wood boxes instead of metal would they’ve more susceptible to interference?  
Phono cable not caps to le with preamp?
@ghdprentice  I have done this yes. I also tried various different cables and plugged into different outlets. I also moved the power supply as far away as the umbilical allows and moved the unit itself away from everything else. my cables are shi... 
Transimpedance has too much gain?
@pinwa  thanks. I may do that.  
Transimpedance has too much gain?
Thanks @lewm  I will run a couple tests tonight.    I know little to nothing on things electrical but what you said makes sense.   should know more later.  
Transimpedance has too much gain?
@mijostyn ​@lewm  unfortunately I DK t have another cart to test.  The album I specifically mentioned I’ve owned in cassette, cd, Lp in several versions/masterings. It’s always been a good sounding album. It still is a good sounding album other th... 
Transimpedance has too much gain?
@pinwa they sound more alike then different but the Spinstsge is more lively. I like it a lot otherwise I’d just send it back. What it does right it does beautifully. What it does “wrong” keeps me up at night. I bought the ipower SMPS but also t... 
Transimpedance has too much gain?
Thanks @mijostyn  it’s definitely in the 1k - 2k region. The Sutherland 20/20 doesn’t have this forwardness and after going through everything I can only think maybe the gain is off or a cart mismatch.      
Legacy Audio I-V2 anyone?
@jltodd35050    no decision yet. Interested in the v1s or the dual mono single chassis v2.   for the price of monos it’s I. coda #8 territory .  
Andover Spindeck is really good
@pinwa  100% agree. Nuance is the only thing I fee it lacks. our experiences are the same. It’s really good.  
Legacy Audio I-V2 anyone?
@csmgolf  amazing. Thanks.  
Legacy Audio I-V2 anyone?
