What Does It Take To Surpass A SME V?
@pindac , wrong again pindac. The Sota has a 1" thick aluminum sub chassis to which the plater and tonearm are firmly bolted. It is as rigid as they come. If you mean the suspension that is a vital part of any turntable that claims to be high perf... 
Looking for some turntable/tonearm/cartridge guidance
@coreyt , I know how you feel. I wound up selling my old turntable not realizing how long it was going to take to get the new one, vinyl withdrawal. The Gyro SE is a fine turntable deserving of a great tonearm design and the Techno arm tics all th... 
Vinyl - One Word - WOW!!
@mambacfa , I can record records in 24/192 and snap back and forth between the actual vinyl and the digital copy. Nobody can hear a difference. If there is a difference in mastering between the digital and analog copies that will make a difference...

I stand corrected The Moerch is not a unipivot. It is still a vey thin flexy arm and modern tonearm thinking supports making the arm tubes as stiff as you can within reason. This is why you see so many conical arm tubes and carbon fiber ones @cor... 
Weirdly Specific HUM issue
@fuzztone , simple. Float the ground on the Freya and see if it goes away.  
Headphones vs speakers….
1+ @audioman58 , head phones are like sex with a condom. The problem is most of us can not afford the equipment that handily surpasses headphones in performance.  
Weirdly Specific HUM issue
Because the grounds are common. You need to isolate the piece that is causing the hum. Unplug one item at a time until the hum disappears. Like musical chairs, the last one standing is it.

@mulveling , That is wrong. When you lighten the counterweight you drop both the horizontal and vertical EFs. You might be able to live with this discrepancy but it will adversely affect  performance.   
What Does It Take To Surpass A SME V?
@lewm , there are people ready to try anything to make their product stand out. Separating vertical and horizontal resonance by a little avoids there being one large peak, you get two smaller ones but blended together. In the case of the ET2 and o...

You can rest assured that when I behave this way there is no reasonable alternative, just wishful thinking.  
What Does It Take To Surpass A SME V?
@atmasphere , sure but it does not change the fact that the horizontal EF far exceeds the vertical EF. You still have to counter balance the cartridge. @pindac, It is not fantastical thinking pindac. It is rational thinking based on 5 decades of ... 
Looking for some turntable/tonearm/cartridge guidance
@coreyt ​​@lewm has exactly the right idea. I had a close look at your turntable. The Michell arm and the RB3000 are VERY similar. I bet they both have the same spindle to pivot distance which is 222 mm. Making an arm board is child's play if you ... 
End Game Turntable suggestions
@musicmatters1206 , It all depends on the design of the turntable. Forget about price. There are many super expensive tables that are not designed as well as the Thorens  or the RP10 for that matter. It is really not that expensive to make a decen... 
Looking for some turntable/tonearm/cartridge guidance
Hi coreyt, The Moerch is one of the worst tonearms made. You are far better off with the Technoarm 2. If that is not available get a Rega RB3000. It is very similar to the Technoarm and will handle the Hana beautifully. The Moerch fails because i... 
Speakers that are good with tubes
@pinotnoir , greetings. I too have Soundlab speakers and have been waiting patiently for my pair of Atma-Sphere MA 2s for 6 months. We have a very special situation. Our speakers range from 30 ohms in the bass to less than 1 ohm at 20 kHz. The Atm...
