Turntable help/recommendation with specific setup
+ one on the AT 440ML Cartridge. So good I moved on to AT ART 9 Moving Coil. That's a lot more money but it's a lot more cartridge. But the AT 440ML blew me away, so I figured I would really like one of their better moving coil carts, and I doDan.

Are you still ignoring Iris Dement?
bdp24, I've never really heard of Iris Dement, I used to listen to Emmylou Harris, Wylie and Willon (as they liked to be called at one time), but I never before heard of Iris.I will correct that situation before the day is out.Regards,Dan 
Only Buzzing Output Through Speakers
Crown amps, when new at todays prices, have gotten a bit pricey. I had my Crown XTi 2002 go TU. I shipped it to Crown Audio's Factory repair center, they replaced a couple of caps and one or two other do-dads I don't remember the name of, sent it ... 
Classical music listening... what is a better source High Rez or Vinyl?
I was reminded again last night, even though I didn't play any classical, I played some jazz that had no electronic instruments, just how good vinyl can sound.It just really perks my attention and enjoyment when vinyl sounds this good. I do also l... 
New Audio Frontiers 211 SE amp opinions and experience

The Absurdity of it All
At my age (74 now), and pretty bad Tinnitus, I can still hear improvements in my system, I've got a new amp, preamp, and a new (better) cartridge, I could quite easily hear the improvements in the upgrade in sound quality.I enjoy my system now mor... 
Modwright LS100 vs The followings
About a year  ago now, I bought a factory reconditioned SWL 9.0 Line Stage. Blew me away, its sound is, to my ears, perfect. Modwright is tough to beat especially for the price.Regards,Dan 
Is it a Merger or Bust?
Artemus 5, well there you are. You're both happy That's a win, and I'm glad you are happy. That's all that matters. 
Is it a Merger or Bust?
Apart from conversation, it really doesn't matter what any of us do, as long as we are happy with the results. As I said in my previous statement, I never enjoyed hearing my 2 channel sound  through a preprocessor, It wasn't until I heard it throu... 
Is it a Merger or Bust?
With the right room, and the right equipment, you can have an excellent stereo system, and a good sounding multi-channel system. It takes a lot of equipment to do it right, though.I use a separate preamp for stereo, and a separate two channel powe... 
Dave Alvin/From An Old Guitar
That one stayed in the rotation for a good long while, and will be played often in the future.Regards,Dan 
What phono preamp are you using?
I use a Modwright SWP 9.0 Signature with an upgraded power supply. I think if I were in your shoes, I would get the Modwright PH 9.0 Phono Stage.I am using an AT ART 9 cartridge, it sounds amazing on my Garrard 401 and Dynavector 501 arm vinyl fro... 
Acquired A Dynavector DV505 Now I Got To Put It On Something
I thought I'd share my story. After re-entering the vinyl game years ago now, and going through a few tables that really didn't do it for me, I bought a Garrard 401 chassis, and rebuilt it. I acquired a Dynavector 501 arm, and rebuilt that, and mo...
