Fried speaker comparison
I noticed the Q3s listed for sale here yesterday went in a jiffy. I considered pulling the trigger, but the opportunity was gone before I knew it.-Bob 
Speaker Placement Nirvana
"Mustang is Ford Mustang, a muscle car.Schwinn is famous bicycle manufacturer."Oh! Now I get it! Of Course, that was the part I got, but since I didn't grasp the analogy to audio, thanks for the clarification.-Bob

I think Grimace has experienced what I have: changing the position of the speakers in the room absolutely swamps changes to electronics, cables, etc.Marakanetz, I'm not sure I understand your comments. If you'd care to, perhaps you could be more d... 
Inexpensive Phono Cables Recommendations
I've been quite happy with the Blues cables from KABusa.com. $22 for a 1-meter pair.-Bob 
opinions on Rega RS1 speakers
I've never heard them, but they got a very good review at TechRadar, which I believe is the online version of England's HiFi Choice magazine. If I recall correctly, they gave the Regas a five-out-of-five-star rating.Mcgarick, as you may know, Rega...

You said:"So, I am having difficulty understanding why REGA recommends doing nothing when the arm tube is not close to being parallel to the platter."Fillmoor answered you question with great accuracy, above. If you want to read it in Roy Gandy's ...

I've got a center clamp and I've been thinking of getting a periphery ring just for use on dish-warped records. Playing the concave side of a dish-warped record has got to wreak havoc on azimuth, no?-Bob

I'm not sure whether this is the same thing you're experiencing, but with just about every LP I've played in the last 40 or so years, there is a pop as the stylus glides from the uncut record surface into the groove. No way to avoid that, I don't ... 
Top 3 high compliant mm/mi cartridges
Actually, a thread like this is just what we need. Who wants to read three years' worth of posts on Raul's threat! (Not that it isn't great reading, but who has the time.) What we need is a Cliff's Notes version!
