Digitizing Vinyl; Suggestions Please
@1grabber2 OK, you’ve obviously got some exceptional LPs there. And certainly many historical recording have been trashed for several reasons, not only as a result of the "loudness war," in the remastering for CD. But transcribing and converting t... 
Digitizing Vinyl; Suggestions Please
If you manage to sell the LPs, by far the best suggestion here is to then purchase CDs of the same music. First, as many others have noted, digitizing hundreds of LPs will take a ridiculous amount of time, effort, and, to do it at all well, money.... 
Gentleman, get yer credit cards ready...
Nutz to all that! I'm sticking with my good old Lirpa TT. It's got real history... 
Opinions and recommendations on active loudspeakers
@lonemountain Exactly! I often get the sense that some people in these parts are simply EQing their system by other means. The clarity and lack of distortion with top quality active speakers/studio monitors may well tell some people more than they...

Thiel CS 2.2 Speakers... What you all think?
@prof. "What are you even doing on a site like this?" Not much, actually. I get Audiogon's e-mails. I'll sometimes notice a topic of interest and will occasionally toss in my 2¢. Thiel 2 2s are of interest. Balanced AC and active monitors are others.

@gosta. Interesting. Those "trash can" stands may account for some "interesting" resonant bass interactions and effects. You may not need to spend the dime for Quested's stands, but something better should be a priority.I've no special insights in... 
Thiel CS 2.2 Speakers... What you all think?
I've been running Thiel 2 2's (no decimal point...) for 25 years without the slightest urge to "upgrade." Whenever I hear other speakers that I think sound "really good," I come back to the Thiels and realize they they're as good or better.That sa...

@gosta. Congrats on those Quested V3110s! They are certainly among the first rank of active studio monitors and, by all accounts, altogether the equal of the PSIs that I flog. Between their sound and @ 6½ stone (they're British, after all...) they... 
Opinions and recommendations on active loudspeakers
Several notes:1) Active speakers (monitors) such as most of the higher-end ones being discussed here are by in large no-nonsense and demanding professional tools. Not only are they not designed to be eye-catching and decorative, as a class they mu... 
Opinions and recommendations on active loudspeakers
@inna Not. At. All. The first concern, by far, is sound quality. One's job depends on it. But pros are generally a no-nonsense bunch with better things to concern themselves with than pointless tweaks. Active monitors are a very well proven concep... 
Opinions and recommendations on active loudspeakers
There may be others as good, I’ve not auditioned all that there is obviously, but I’m confidant that none are finer than PSI Audio Active Studio Monitors. They are built in Switzerland by a company that is an offshoot of Revox, if that rings a bel... 
How many audiophiles do you need to change a lightbulb?
So far, it seems that no one, not one commenter, has mentioned the necessity of burning-in the bulb for a minimum of 250 hours before passing critical judgment on the fidelity or balance of the light produced. Likewise the cabling supplying the cu... 
Vindication at Last!
Undoubtedly, many, if not all, of those cheap, out-of-spec digits were supplied by Lirpa Uno Industries, Inc. 
Looking for a decent CD Recorder
If one is still going to burn a CD-R, the quality of the burner is nearly irrelevant. The Tascam unit or the one in your computer will both be just fine. I burn CD-Rs for commercial reproduction with a Plextor drive in my computer which I then tes...
