New or Old
The KEF 107 is a fantastic speaker and hard to beat if everything is working properly. The Kube is essential with them if you want the full bass response. The T33 tweeter will probably need the ferrofluid replaced. It was an easy job on my 104/2s ... 
Record Care Regime can I do better ?
As @cleeds stated, LPs aren't made in clean rooms and, in fact, some record pressing plants are very messy places.Having worked in a clean room environment and having analyzed new LPs, I would say that most record pressing plants are dirty. I woul... 
KEF 107.1 or B&W 802 S3 Matrix
The KEF 107 has the soft dome t33 tweeter while the 107/2 has an aluminum tweeter. The t33 tweeter was used in many KEF speakers in the 80s and 90s. I have never heard the 107/2 but I would think that the aluminum tweeter would be brighter than th... 
Kef Reference Tweeters-Ferrofluid Replacement
Alex,For 1 inch tweeters, you only need one 100ul tube for each tweeter. I purchased 2 tubes from Parts Express for my KEF 104/2s which have 1 inch tweeters.  
Router extender.
You might want to try an Apple Airport Extreme router. They are no longer manufactured but are available in the used market. The latest model is the 6th generation upright model A1521. The earlier model is the flat model 5th generation A1408. I ha... 
Vintage KEF vs new Salk
Marc,I forgot to mention that the front polymer baffle housing the two midrange drivers is removable. There are 6 screws attaching it to the cabinet. I think they are hex head screws but might be torx. 
Vintage KEF vs new Salk
Marc,I am not sure what is making the fuzzy sound in your left speaker. It could be the tweeter or something else. The bottom front driver is the lower midrange driver and the upper front driver is the upper midrange driver which is the Uni-Q driv... 
Vintage KEF vs new Salk
As I stated in your other post, your KEF Reference Model 3.2s are fantastic speakers and would be hard to beat. The Salk speakers are very nice sounding speakers with wonderful cabinetry. However, they have a different sonic signature compared to ... 
Speaker upgrade question.
Marc, if you like the KEF signature sound of your Reference Model 3.2s, you will be hard pressed to find a speaker that you prefer. I have the Model ones and Model Twos and IMHO they are some of the best speakers that I have heard. I prefer their ... 
What is the best way to clean records?
Benzalkonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium salt which is a cationic surfactant. It is typically used as an antiseptic. It also can be used as an anti fungal agent as you state. It may be fine to use for its anti fungal properties on LPs. My on... 
What is the best way to clean records?
I agree with what mijostyn posted except, I am not sure about the use of benzalkonium chloride. It is a cationic surfactant that I have not studied. I would add my findings regarding an ultrasonic cleaner. I built my ultrasonic cleaner in 1975 and... 
50’ Connection Between Mac and DAC
Are you currently using the internal DAC in the Airport Express? If so, just stick with your wireless setup and get a decent DAC. You can use the optical out of the Airport Express into a DAC. It will give you the biggest improvement in SQ. My set... 
Speaker stand makers - Tannoy Turnberry
Very simple to make them yourself. I made some about 8 inches high for a friend using douglas fir and birch plywood and stained them with a mixture of Minwax Early American and Walnut stain. The cost was less than $30 and took a few hours to const... 
Need helpful recommendations for next two purchases
You have a lot of good recommendations and it can be confusing for someone just getting into streaming. For simplicity I would recommend the Bluesound Node2i. It has a built-in DAC that is ok but most stand alone DACs will outperform it. The Node2...
