|Need some Cart recommendations, $300 - $700 (New/Used) range…warm, full, yet great def.|
Check out the Soundsmith web pages lots of great cartridge information. I snagged a used Carmen MK2 with low hours on usaudiomart and it sounds fantastic.
|Turntable noobie...what advice do you have?|
Hudson Hifi has a great cleaning, care kit for under $30 with everything you need.
|Ok ..I have Maggie 1.7is on Magnarisers but one keeps blowing the "tweeter" |
I would try a different be amp. You’ve lucky it’s just the fuse I had Emo 1L monos with my 1.7 and the amp kept blowing. I finally moved to a Parasound Hint which drove those babies with no problem.
|Magnepan 20.7i Amplifier Pairing|
I would think most of the larger Pass amps would do a wonderful job. I use a 250.8 with 3.7i and it hardly ever leaves class A. I know in the past Magnepan discouraged class D amps. You definitely want a high current amp
| Audio By Van Alstine DVA M225 mono amps |
The May/June issue of The Absolute Sound gave them a terrific review. One of my friends is using older Van Alstine amp and pre with his Philharmonic 3 speakers and the sound is awesome. AVA has been making well regarded audio equipment for years.

|Led Zeppelin 11|
If someone's crazy enough to pay that I guess it is to them. I'd love to hear a comparison to the Page remaster or other available pressings.
|Favorite religious song|
Byrd's - Turn, Turn, Turn Bob Dylan - Gotta Serve Somebody
|Why is most everything remastered?|
Don’t forget most of the music released in the 50’s and 60’s was meant to sound good on a 3" car speaker or mono record player.
|The price of used LP's.|
Many of the prices are just crazy. In may cases I would rather have a better sounding remastered copy. I have a huge collection from the 60's to late 70's my children said they would get a dumpster till I told them otherwise. Wish I had the moti...
|recommended oil for well tempered spindle cup|
On my VPI Scout I'm using 40-weight motor oil and .25 teaspoon of white lithium grease as recommend on the bearing.
|Mogami 2921 vs Canare 4s11 vs ???|
I purchased (2) 17’ runs of Canare 4s11 for my Magnepan 3.7 which are 4 ohm and it is excellent. Good prices from Redco in CT. Sorry no experience with Mogami.
