|Audiogon "RECORDINGS TO DIE FOR" list|
All Mosaic Records Jass series, especially the love reocrdings. The 45rpm of Louis doing St John's Infirmiry. Not expensive but one of the best sounding records I've ever heard. I heard that at a shop in Santa Monica on two ARC monoblocks, a Ref-1...
|Mosaic Records vinyl prices dropping|
Thanks for remembering me, guys! I'm still lurking around on Agon but since I've been traveling for the last 7 years I don't buy anything except LPs for when I finally get home. Albert, I bought a subscription to the Music Matters LPs years ago on...
|Puzzle:Integrated. Vintage. Tube. Phono. Headphone|
Sorry, I should have added I'm trying to keep the unit under $1000 for the integrated and an additional headphone amp as mentioned above.Sorry for asking this question here again: I asked a while ago but now I've adjusted some requirements.Thanks ...
|Accuphase E 202 rebuild - worth it?|
I agree with Donjr...well put, Ghasley. I'll post my decision and results.
|What piece of music can you play over & over?|
"Spiritual" by Coltrane, live. That's really the only piece of music i need to be content.
|Best SACD player $1,000-$1,500 Range|
You can't go wrong with a Sony 777ES and you'll have money to spare.
|Minimax or Audio Research SP 9 mk III ?|
I agree with Mitch (and most of the rest.) I had an sp II and hated it. Had it for about 4 days. Thin sounding junk. Buy anything but.With your budget, also check out the space tech offerings.
|Has used prices of gear droppd, due to economy|
I agree with Buconero. The financial crisis really hasn't hit main street yet. When it does, it will get very ugly for the majority of people, I'm afraid.
|Is It Worth $28 Million?|
He doesn't take paypal :(
|Sell Hi-Fi and invest in stock market?|
Sell every piece of expensive gear immediately and buy gold. However...you'll find a very soft market for toys right now but it's going to get a hell of a lot worse.
|Turntable advise needed - Norway callin'|
There's a used Brinkman that came up for sale today (not mine)
|Wadia 170i and Benchmark Dac1 - anyone try it?|
My question is why would people want to use an ipod doc instead of their computer as a transport? If you have music on your ipod then it must also be on your hard drive and your hard drive can contain your entire collection and your computer has a...
|Cheaper substitute for VAC Avatar?|
Check out some of the used Cayin integrateds. great sound and build quality at very reasonable prices.
|slow, funky, groovin' laid back music|
Definitely Nightmares on Wax as suggested. Try also Kid Loco. For some afro/cuban jazz try Herbie Mann from the 70s.Best idea is to get a free lastfm.com account and plug in those names. You'll be able to hear snippets and sometimes whole songs an...
|Someone school me on this stuff|
For the sake of argument, no budget???he must work on wall street.
