|Did anyone use a Bang & Olufsen turntable w/ Mac?|
I use a B&O RX2 turntable with a the MMC2 cartridge playing through a McIntosh C220 tube preamp and it sounds just fine. Obviously, there are better turntables out there but this combo suits me just fine. By the way, I was using the MMC3 cartr...
|McIntosh MC402 - Best tube preamp?|
I have the McIntosh C220 and really like it. It doesn't have all the features as the 2200 or the 2300 but it's a very fine preamp. You can find them used for around $2200-2300.
|12AX7 tube alternatives for Jolida JD-100|
I recently bought a pair of the TJ Full Music 12ax7's for my McIntosh C220 preamp. A significant improvement over the stock tubes. I have about 50 hours on them and they are not coming out of my preamp any time soon. I had tried a pair of Telefunk...
|Mcintosh c2300 preamp tube question|
I don't know about the 2300 but I have the C220 and have replaced the stock tubes with some NOS RCA's and some old Telefunkens. In both cases they improved the sound quite a bit.
|ICs with great natural sounding highs?|
I second the recommendation for Ridge Street Poiema ic's.
So, it's not a clicking sound that comes through the speakers?
Thanks for the responses. I have been thinking of the APC H15 but I have heard that it makes an annoying, clicking sound when it adjusts the voltage. Anyone heard this?
|Power Cord w/ lean bass|
I should point out I'm looking to spend no more than $300 or so used. Thanks.
I understand the suggestion for the Brickwall but does that mean that a surge protector which uses MOV's will not work for my situation? The reason I ask is because I'm looking at the APC-H15 because it also has voltage regulation and does use MOV...

|Maple platform question|
Thorman, thanks. I know I can get them from Mapleshade. I was just wondering if there is a place I can buy them locally.
|McIntosh C220 tube question|
Well, let's try this again. Has anyone tried any tube rolling with their MC220? If so, what did you find worked the best? Thanks.
|Old B&O vs. new Rega P1|
Thanks for the responses. Johnnyb53, your description of the B&O is fairly accurate. The main problem I have with the B&O is being limited to their cartridges which aren't made anymore. There is a shop called the Soundsmith which makes rep...
|Cary SLP-98 vs Rogue 99.... and tube rolling?|
I own the 99Magnum and like it. I haven't compared it to many others but it sounds fairly neutral with excellent bottom end. It doesn't have excessive bloom but has a very clear, liquid sound. For the used prices they are going for these days(arou...
