Yes Ralph, I remember my father's Bozak B302A's driven by a ST70 they had loads of bass. By the way what are the woofer's in your speakers? Are your enclosures vented? 
Searching for matching(?) Subwoofer solution
Come on clio you can be more honest than that! Cable risers are for people who want to show off their silly $10,000 speaker wires. Anything they do to the sound is purely psychological.Hleeid, just buy a role of the thickest gauge you need and use... 
Which Magnepans for my small room?
bdp24, 20.7's are big. Soundlabs 845's are HUGE:)

Smod, They are very different speakers than you have now. They will not go louder but they will go loud more effortlessly. With your subs they will go loud enough. I do not think anyone can argue about the high frequencies. Many think the Maggie r... 
List your state of art headphones for smart phone use!

chakster, you can always out board them. 
Worth pursuing analog sound from digital?
All crap. Lets face it old guys. Digital is way more accurate than analog, you don't have to deal with noise issues or the 10% harmonic distortion or the needle getting stuck. You are all disillusioned by the fact that there is very little to tamp...

mreeter, I have a 40 year old Syrinx PU 3. It is as good as the day I bought it and I have never had to do anything to it but play records. Sharpening spikes? If the spike is hardened for durability, sanding it the way you mentioned will heat up t...

Chakster, The Sowter trandformer for low impedance cartridges is good for 1-15 ohms. 1:10 or 1:20. Mike

Not really Uberwaltz, most of the best cartridges now a days are very low impedance. I would just get  transformers for low impedance cartridges.IMHO an internal transformer is always better. I guess some people are not so hot with a soldering Iron.

Smod, The 3.7's are the sweet spot in the range in terms of value but if you can find a pair of 20.7's used in good shape for decent money by all means. New 3.7's vs used 20.7's. Good luck,Mike 
Speaker toe in
ganash, you bet. I always listen with my eyes closed when I am listening seriously. Visual cues can easily distort your audio perception. Our eyes and ears are wired together. As an example if one inner ear malfunctions your eyes will start to dri... 
Standmount speakers. I have $5000.
Hey Duke, I was just on your web site. If you put  subwoofers under the Soundlabs and cross in and around 100 hz and you put the right amp on them they will effortlessly blow your doors off and it does take four subs:)Your web site does not mentio...
