Audio Desk Record Cleaner-Anyone buy one yet
Let me know if you decide to sell your V8. I've been thinking about one of those for a while.Good listening,Mike 
Do I keep the Oracle Delphi IV/V?
I agree completely with Omsed. I recently had my mkV upgraded to a mkVI, and it is unbelievable how much better the mkVI is over the mkV. I would upgrade to a mkVI, and now or later, upgrade the arm. I've used Graham arms with great success and th... 
Phono Preamp?
What arm and cartridge are you using, and do you plan on upgrading either of those in the near future? With at least that information, some suggestions could be made.Best,Mike 
Buying a used cartridge...tell us your tale.
I'm sure people buy used cartridges all the time, but I have not had good experiences. I bought a Benz middle of the line used cartridges that emitted a screeching sound when placed on the record. The seller did send it for warranty repair for me,... 
Lower volume with some XLR's?
I swapped the ground and other wire, and all is well now and working as they should.Thanks for everyone's comments.Good listening,Mike 
Lower volume with some XLR's?
DUH!! I finally realized what I did. I crossed the ground wire between the input end and output end. I was so fixated on orientation when looking at the pins, that I wired the female ends the same orientation when looking at the holes. This obviou... 
'80s vinyl sound like CDs?
I don't want us to get off topic, but well said Jmcgrogan2. I've come to consider cables as a component themselves, with pluses and minuses just like any component. The trick is balancing everything in the system to get proper neutral natural soun... 
'80s vinyl sound like CDs?
Hey Matt,I have heard good things about Nordost, but the Baldur cable that I tried, while more open and slightly less congested in the mids, didn't have the attack, inner detail, or bass, of my old Krell Cogelco Black. I considered them comparable... 
'80s vinyl sound like CDs?
Hi Elizabeth,I'm not saying digitally recorded vinyl are necessarily inferior, and I realize that every recording is different. I'm just noticing that a lot of the vinyl from the 80's is not as ....something, compared to vinyl from before and afte... 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Just finished listening to Bowie's A New Day, and now have Eric Burdon's 'Til Your River Runs Dry on. This is an awesome new record. 
'80s vinyl sound like CDs?
Whoa to you Mattmiller :), I'm talking about what were new releases in the mid and late 80's, when the studios were starting to record everything digitally, not analog recordings and pressings which I completely agree were probably at the top of t... 
How does one "Get lost in the music"?
It's definitely the music first, and then the system. No matter what your system, the music should catch your attention and hold it. The system will then allow you to hear more and more of the music as it progresses. I'm assuming anyone here is al... 
Cones under a suspended table?
Good deal Tonyptony. I sort of assume that you did that because the cones, if used with the points down would not give clearance from the original feet. Correct? You may want to try removing the original feet and replacing them with the cones. If ... 
Cones under a suspended table?
I just changed the BDR Cones under my Oracle to mk3, and put those on mk4 Pucks. HUGH difference. Much better balance now with wider sound stage, and more clarity overall. I have no idea why these things work, but they sure do. It's also amazing h... 
Graham Phantom ceramic armwand 'twisted'?
Hi Rich,Was there a fix for this?Thanks
