Your Top Five Blues LPs, SQ-wise...
@tooblue - you are most welcome. Two other blues rock lps that are recorded great - full, organic, live in the studio sound - are Robin Trower’s “where are you going to” and “closer to the day”. After all these years the man still gets a ton of so...

Go to Acoustic Sounds website. Get Diunna Greenleaf direct to disc recording. $10. Sells for $20 or more elsewhere. Limited length lp, but well worth it. They have a whole line of these recordings. She stands in the middle of your speakers and sin... 
Great musicians who should have been famous except....
Bobby Caldwell. If he wants to listen to a good hard rock drummer get him the self-titled Captain Beyond album. Super playing on every song. Jack DeJohnette, very musical jazz drummer. Many great ones already mentioned here, in many genres. In lis... 
Has anyone finally decided to sell their Turntable and Vinyl collection?
Speaking of Italian Prog...did u sell any Perigeo? I have 3 lps by them that I enjoy. @gosta - thank you for the suggestion, but I am set. I agree totally that discovering new music is a huge part of the hobby and a large part of my collection was... 
Has anyone finally decided to sell their Turntable and Vinyl collection?
Will never sell my vinyl. Been collecting since I was 15. I am 64. Over the years I sold a few out of my collection to used record stores for store credit, which was twice what cash value from store was. I also have a great CD collection, but I am... 
KT150s in Audio Research Ref 110.
@samzx12 - I had a Primaluna Dialogue Premium power amp at the time and the 120s sounded too zippy, the top end was a little over emphasized. Originally I had a quad of SED winged C 6550s that I really loved, very balanced, easy to listen to, rela... 
If you could bring back one great artist that has
Emily Remler. If you are into great jazz guitar you know who she is. She was an incredible talent. So sad. Get all of her vinyl on Concord. Great stuff and recorded well.  
KT150s in Audio Research Ref 110.
For several years I had auto-bias integrated and power amps and I went through all the power tubes (and several small pre tubes). I ran El34, kt77, kt120, kt150, Kt88, 6550. I kept coming back to the El34s and the 6550s. At the time I had a pair o...

CD"S
I like it simple, put it in the CD player, put it on the turntable. I can’t speak to streaming as I don’t. I do copy CDs to my desktop and burn 80 great minutes of custom CDs, for example female vocals, soul, rock, fusion, acoustic jazz, etc. I wo... 
Air Tight PC-1 Coda and more options to upgrade my analog setup
I agree with all who suggest getting a new, separate, phono stage first.  It is critical if you are going to really get into vinyl and I would get a tube one. You can then roll tubes if necessary to compliment any cartridge. Make sure it can handl... 
Best place to sell an amp.
+1 on US AudioMart. Sold an amp and pre-amp there in last 6 months.  
Great sounding/recorded albums
A bit off thread, but any Steely Dan fan should get Fagen’s box set Cheap X-mas. It’s a must-have.  Also when is Becker’s “11 Tracks of Whack” gonna get on vinyl?  
SET amplifier recommendation
Take a look at the Audio Mirror 45w SET mono blocks. Over your budget, but maybe used price would meet your spend. There are also a couple of reviews links on the Audio Mirror website.  
Tribute bands or bands/artists making a comeback..any favorites out there??
A friend of mine saw Barre’s band recently and said it was great. I have a solo CD by him (could not find it on vinyl) and the compositional variety and skill shown is...well, exceptional. Do you know if he lives in the US now? Hope I get a chance...
