Why Do We Use Preamps?
So if the goal is to add more depth and clarity to the sound, would it then serve almost the same purpose as a tube buffer, or maybe even a separate full-sized amp with gain control that you use further up the chain? Could you daisy-chain 2 or 3 p... 
It's great to see you're working on your web site! I am actually a web designer myself, and if you need any help with that stuff just send me a message. I know it can get unbearably hairy sometimes. 
Vinyl "bleed through"- need set-up advice
Just take it as a sign that you have a very resolving system! The pre-echo is evident on many recordings that have a silent section followed by a really loud section. One of the best examples I've heard for this is "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppel... 
Sell Hi-Fi and invest in stock market?
Don't sell your hi-fi. Do invest in the stock market. At this point you don't even need to bet on how well a company is going to do, you're really just betting it will stay afloat. If GM doesn't close it's door, it will be back up to $30 in 3 years. 
Movies that featured High End equipment
The horror movie Shutter features some high end speakers. There is a pair in the protagonist's apartment, and a pair of the same brand in the apartment of one of the co-stars. If anyone could help with identification, it would be very helpful.-Dusty

Technics SL-1200 MKII Bearing Problem
I took it to a professional, and it's fixed, basically. If I balance the tonearm at zero, set the anti-skate to zero, and then pull the tonearm over to the spindle it still drifts back to the edge of the platter, but much more slowly now. I guess ... 
Technics SL-1200 MKII Bearing Problem
I thought the anti-skate only pulls in one direction (away from the platter) to counteract the centripetal force of the rotating record? If this is the case, then it should never pull the arm back toward the platter, as it does when I move the arm... 
Technics SL-1200 MKII Bearing Problem
After fiddling with it for a few hours, I've taken it to a repair shop. I'll let you know what the results are.Tvad - I have the anti-skate set to zero, and that's why the movement of the arm on its own is bothering me. It should float freely at z... 
Technics 1200 Sent for KAB Mods - w/Audio Samples
I'm excited about hearing the results! 
Swapping the MMF 5 for an SL-1210M5G
Do the numbers support the Dynavector 10x5? 
Swapping the MMF 5 for an SL-1210M5G
I want a bumper sticker that says "I was using a Technics 'table before the audiophiles thought it was cool."I moved from a Linn turntable to the Technics SL-1200 MKII, and I couldn't be happier. I haven't done any modifications at all yet. My fir... 
Tracking Troubles--Upgrade or Setup?
Ablang -- Any updates? I experience the same thing at times, and I'd be very interested to hear how you resolve the problem.-Dusty 
GEM Dandy Record Cleaner - Has Anyone Tried It ?
I finally got my act together and made a DIY version of the GEM Dandy Cleaner. For the $20 in supplies, why not.My first impression with this cleaning system is that it is very, very effective. As with any cleaning system, it won't bring a record ... 
Any bluegrass fans?
If you don't already have the self-titled "Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby," you need to at least listen to it. I would also very highly recommend Tim O'Brien's "Cornbread Nation" and anything by Nickel Creek. Their album "Resons Why: The Very Be...
