10 Inch Tonearms
@millercarbon I thought this was a forum.@rauliruegas the SAT guy says Much the same as Townshend Audio, Helius and Breuer - helius and Breuer form the view 10.5 is the optimal size and that the distortion point is a red herring which is outweighe... 
I'm a Dummy, Tell Me About Turntable Mats
Can I just say that even such illustrious decks as the Air Force One have platter mat options… like cartridges they can be a matter of taste. I am personally trying to get a modern equivalent of the oil filled Sony mat OL 2K for my TTS 8000. I kno... 
Possibly Dumb Question re:Battery as a power supply
@lubachl I actually have an Amazon Model One - it's a superb motor unit - I think that is a great buy because the Amazon motor is actually not your usual DC motor - I think the UK importer at the time advised me it was from a nautical clock. It is... 
Turntable versus tonearm versus cartridge: which is MOST important?

Turntable versus tonearm versus cartridge: which is MOST important?
@lewm i think you got my point because clever/lucky buying can distort the equation. @chakster not sure if you got the 'tongue in cheek' nature of my joke/question. I bought JVC as a doorstop - sorry just kidding - i got it to listen to and as per... 
Turntable versus tonearm versus cartridge: which is MOST important?
There's a chap called Mike Lavigne who has an absolute top flight system and is very approachable. I asked him the question and he said that after a certain stage in a turntable it's the improvements in the arm that are the most significant. Cartr... 
When someone listens to your system for the first time.
I am very lucky - my wife loves the hifi and I also have my own dedicated room that is sound proofed

@rushfan71 good sum up 👍 it’s always the imaging that impresses people the most. Most expect it to be “all about the bass” but it’s actually the imaging - plus the fact that the vinyl doesn’t crackle. 
HELP! I bought equipment drunk, don’t know anything.
