R.I.P. Toshiba SA-2500....now what?
The vintage Marantz stuff is commanding high prices. For good reason I suppose. 
R.I.P. Toshiba SA-2500....now what?
Well, I'll answer my own post. I've spent the afternoon doing a little research.Most of the sub-$300 receivers out there seem to get bad reviews from people upgrading from decent vintage receivers. So I gave up on that route.I looked into simple l... 
Great sounding/recorded albums
Not on any audiophiles radar, much less the vinyl crowd, but I just recently bought the Teskey Brother's Run Home Slow new album on vinyl. I don't know anything about vinyl and the vinyl part of my system is basic to say the least....old Sony dire...

Mark Knopfler's Tracker. Mostly traditional music, real instruments, well produced. Really shows off a system.I'm not sure what you mean by "over produced" but if you want to show off your system Steely Dan's Aja is hard to beat. Their Two Against...

I just checked and it does not do it on side 2. Strange.

I noticed an odd thing about this album. On the A side the run off track spirals down to a closed circle so the needle never gets to the far edge of the runoff track and so the automatic tone arm never lifts. It just keeps spinning in that groove....

I got the Teskey's Run Home Slow vinyl album delivered today. SQ seems really good. DR compression seems minimal to me. Not noticeable at all and I'm pretty sensitive to it. Nice heavy vinyl too. At least compared to those nearly floppy disks I ha...

tooblue, I have Junior Kimbrough's God Knows I Tried on vinyl from Fat Possum records which also released the Black Keys first two albums. It is a great album. And if you like Junior you'll probably like RL Burnside too. Both from the same area.I'...

tuberist, I saw Kingfish play in an old bank building in Clarksdale, Mississippi several years ago. He was mesmerizing.I listened to his new album a while back and thought it was worth another listen then got distracted and forgot about it. Thanks...

@slaw I just ordered Run Home Slow on LP. I have Half Mile Harvest on CD and SQ is okay, not great. A while back I went to order it and it was on back order and never did. I'll need to do that soon.I have the Black Keys 'Let's Rock' CD. SQ is real... 
Take up drums at age 56?
I've pretty much given up on Audiogon because of the heavy handed and arbitrary moderating but I wanted to come back to this thread to give an update since you guys are the ones who encouraged me to dabble in drums for the first time at age 56.I'v... 
What is the least compressed signal?
I'm done with Audiogon. 
What are you streaming tonight?
