Let’s share the music that gives us the chills every time.
“With Twilight as my Guide” - The Mars Volta.   
Almost equality
Nice setup!  
Turntable noobie...what advice do you have?
Spin clean to clean used records. Also buy extra drying clothes so you can do a bunch at a time. Stylus brush needed to keep stylus clean.  I would play a record only once and digitize to a music server to play from there but that’s  just me.   
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Currently listening to Savoy Brown-Jack the Toad Well, I be blowed! 👌  
What defines mid-fi versus high-end?
In this day and age, if something sounds “mid-fi”, it just means you bought the wrong stuff. Fix that! Hifi can be had for a pittance these days. A pair of Grado headphones and a smart phone to stream from  will do to start. Move up to a pair of V...

Numbers are not objects either. Yet one can represent them. Unlike God. So guess which is more complex? Where did our ability to appreciate music come from?  Not numbers.  Just saying.

Wow the most complex object in the universe! Really? That’s big! Who knew we even had discovered that? Here I was thinking maybe that was God or something similarly impossible to render. I wonder what that sounds like? Hopefully not fatiguing. I t...

Honest Experience on Effects of Subwoofer Please
Use a sound meter or sound meter app on a cell phone to measure and find out exactly what is going on with a sub. It’s the only way to really know.  It doesn’t matter what other people think or experience.  Each case is different.
