Preamp for Rogue Stereo 100 amplifier
Thanks Mulveling. I wonder why not a good CJ Premier series preamp ? I once heard a CJ Premier 11a amp with PV12 preamp driving a Tannoy Monitor Gold. It was wonderful. It was fast, fluid and colorful. Tones were so believable. It was not analytic... 
Preamp for Rogue Stereo 100 amplifier
Thanks everyone. The RP7 seems very promising, though expensive. But now my interest has also piqued for Cronus Magnum III with their SE upgrades (resistor and caps upgrade). If it is close to the sound of seperate ST-100 and RP7 then it would be ... 
Tell me about Thales TTT compact turntable
No, I didnt get the Thales. It turns out that the tonearm is on the leaner side sonically. The TT is good but it is a bit of a pain to install a different tonearm on it because of its form factor. This confusion has kept me away. 
Is a PTP Solid 12 (Lenco) worthy of a $5k cartridge
Thanks. Thats good news.I am now shortlisting tonearms. The obvious cost effective choice is Thomas Schick. But I am also looking at Origin Live, SME 3012R or a Fidelity Research FR64s.  
Is a PTP Solid 12 (Lenco) worthy of a $5k cartridge
Lewm, I meant in the area of quietness and transparency belt drives may better the Lenco. Correct me if I am wrong.  
Is a PTP Solid 12 (Lenco) worthy of a $5k cartridge
Having owned a souped up Garrard 301 and listened to fairly souped up Lencos, I know what it does to music in general. That is definitely up my alley. I have not heard the PTP version which as per some is a more refined machine after the various m...

Hi Gilles130, I see multiple platter options for Lenco:1. The original platter2. Stainless steel platter shown on PTP website. It has holes on it3. Gun metal platter by puresound4. Original platter but double stacked Whats your take on all these o... 
Is a PTP Solid 12 (Lenco) worthy of a $5k cartridge
Hi, I have seen a few videos of Bob Wood's TT on youtube. They are okay. He also uses an SPU and couple of other vintage MMs. I am looking for opinion on whether a serious front end consisting of something like Ortofon Anna or Lyra Atlas on a PTP ... 
Micro Seiki BL-111, how good is it ?
No mat. Cartridge was Denon 301 
Micro Seiki BL-111, how good is it ?
I listened to the BL-111 at one of the stores here. Great resolution and dynamics. Very quiet background. But it didnt have the get up and go immediacy. It had a laidback attitude althroughout. Overall flow was somewhat mechanical. I dont know wha... 
"New" Thorens 124 sounds great, but...
Are you possibly using a lot of anti-skate ? Just lower the anti-skate or remove it if it is a string type. Then see if this anomaly continues.  
Review ATC SCM 40 A floorstanders.....finally
Having heard the ATC 40A, 50 active and 100 active. I love all of them but when you hear the 100, everything sounds so complete. 
Upcoming Technics SP-10R (100th Anniversary Model)
Interesting one JP. Yet another nod in favour of Mk3 :-) 
Loricraft Garrard 301 to Dobbins Sp10 Mk3 - What can I expect ?
Kodo The Beat is still in production. In fact Steve told me that now he has the Beat SE version which he has demoed at RMAF this year. The SE version is quite a bit more expensive though 
Upcoming Technics SP-10R (100th Anniversary Model)
@downunder selling your Mk3 could be an option if you find a better sounding TT. No other reason I guess. Listen to a Sp10-R and take your pick.
