Siren noise increasing in volume with Maze Audio Ref 4 Krell cryo power conditioner-wall.
On their forum, if you mention aftermarket power cords the responses to questions can be limited.I’ll probably experiment some more and maybe email Bryston or Gary Dayton again. 
Devore Fidelity Orangutan O/96
I have only read the reviews of the DeVore Orangutan’s. I would love to listen to a set but living in Dayton, Ohio I am not sure if there are any dealers nearby me. But I just wanted to comment that I thought I read that the DeVore speakers are hi... 
Vinyl collection, now what?
@hleeid, The Bryston BP-26 preamp is what I have. I do not have an installed phono stage for it. I recently purchased the Bryston "1/3 chassis" BP2-MM moving magnet phono stage and have it tied in to my Bryston BPS-2 external power supply via a "y... 
Where in the US to send my Linn Sondek LP12.
@daveyf I went last month and had an appointment with Thomas OK and did just that. I had more of a major overhaul of my LP12. I got the Karousel bearing, a new thinner felt mat, had the Karousel bearing installed on a Greenstreet Audio keel copy s... 
Linn LP 12 hum not coming from Bryton phono stage.
@lewm :  I was definitely concerned that the sound was getting louder. I plan to message Maze Audio about what happened. When I installed the "Krell Cryo" power cord from the wall outlet to my power conditioner, it did not seem to change the SQ mu... 
Linn LP 12 hum not coming from Bryton phono stage.
@noromance  - The Ittok was tested by Thomas as part of my turntable service and he said is "exceeded spec" with the pendulum test. I think the couple of times where the needle skipped onto the paper lable was right as I was about to reach for the... 
Linn LP 12 hum not coming from Bryton phono stage.
Thanks for your interest @noromance  & @daveyf .I had a hunch that the Maze Audio Krell cryo power cord that I had running to my Bryston BIT-15 power conditioner from the wall might in some way be contributing to the wild "siren" sound loop th... 
Linn LP 12 hum not coming from Bryton phono stage.
Update on my path to quieting my phono(Linn Sondek LP12 w/ Bryston BP-2 MM is overdue...I returned from Ann Arbor Michigan where I had taken the turntable to Overture Audio and Thomas O'Keefe there did a fantastic job doing a whole bunch of upgrad... 
Used copies of The Cure “Bloodflowers” on vinyl @ $300+?
Update on some Cure LP's on Vinyl.1) Seventeen Seconds picture disc remastered and came out this last Record Store Day - really quite good! Or at least I am happy. The picture disc vinyl seems to make a "swoosh" sound between tracks which is a bit... 
What do you think of this power cord?
@bob540 , Yes I know about Hanson Audio in Oakwood & also Cincinnati. It is where I got all my Bryston gear through. The Maze Audio cords I purchased are a woven design and therefore quite thick. They are pretty flexible though. 
What do you think of this power cord?
I can't speak the the "Eden Series" from Maze Audio but I am trying out the "Ref 4 Krell Cryo" power cords in my system. I have 3 in place right now: 1) between my Bryston MPS2 power supply and my Bryston BIT-15 power conditioner, and 2) between t... 
Mahavishnu fans only
I would say Birds of Fire rocks the hardest. One of the most influential jazz fusion albums of all time. This reminds me of how I got into the Dixie Dregs years ago and reading interviews with Steve Morse and seeing the Dregs live. You could tell ... 
What have you been working on in 2020?
I would like to learn to solder and do little audio projects. That is cool that you added little heat sinks. I'm getting back into analog and actively setting up my old Linn Sondek LP 12 turntable and trying to identify the source of hum from my o... 
Thiel Owners
@tomthiel. I have been messaging @stspur about some changes he is making with his CS3.6's. He soldered in some different components into his crossovers which he says have made a big impact on sound quality. Is there any way to get a list of the sp... 
Are there any audiophile heavy metal reissues on 45 rpm vinyl?
@jperry - thanks. I am able to pre-listen to some of the titles on you tube which can be pretty educational. I'm still trying to remember the name of the small record label that does high quality re-issues of certain metal classics. I'm thinking c...
