Who makes the best boxes for shipping albums. Not bulk, just a few at a time
Mofimadness, I wish I was closer to CO.  I keep the boxes too, but I'm down to my last couple.   
Best speakers around $130k?
Go to a hifi show, Chicago, Denver etc... you won't get as many stupid answers there.  
Turntable versus tonearm versus cartridge: which is MOST important?
Whatever gets the signal off of the source is the most important piece. Nothing later in the line can add back in what was missed.   
Am I a hopeless audio snob?
I have had a number of good tts in my system through the years, including the SOTA Star Sapphire, SOTA Cosmos, Teres, and finally a hotroded Technics SP 10 mk II.  You're going to buy the table that you like but don't rule things out that really d... 
It was 44 years ago that...
It's interesting that no one mentioned the period when Dylan and The Band were noodling around in the basement. Eric Clapton disbanded Cream after hearing what The Band produced during that time i.e. Music From Big Pink. Lots of musicians claimed ...

There are a lot of people that have replaced mega-buck TTs with the Technics SP 10 and a good plinth. A good DD TT will sound better than all but the very best belt drive tables. Compared to those there is almost no difference.You can spend a lot ... 
Best LP since Waters left Pink Floyd?
Hey are you an audiophile or a music lover??? What a terrible question! :) Of course we are talking about music!!!!!!!! 
Best LP since Waters left Pink Floyd?
Rcrerar, there are some inaccuracies on your post. While it is true that Roger Waters contacted Bob Ezrin about co-producing his upcoming work, there was no agreement between them. Waters didn't want to go to California to work and Ezrin's wife re... 
Turntable Recommendation
There are lots of great tables thatyou can buy in that price range. I don't want to be a nay-sayer, but I have NEVER heard a VPI table that I liked and I have heard everything from the bottom to the-of-the-line.I have recently been convinced that ... 
Catch 22 in turntable setup
All of the instructions are general. Actual setup will vary based on the vacissitudes of construction. Once you are close you will have to adjust by ear. Just because the arm is parallel to the top of the platter doesn't mean that the engine of th... 
How much does your system retail for?
Robert, I guess they just aren't as smart, or maybe just as arrogant as you! 
Bent cantilever on Exact 2......oops
Cantilevers are coated with very hard (brittle) materials. Once it is bent the sonic characteristics of the cantilever have been forever changed. You may or may not be able to bend it back but ever if you do, it has been compromised.
