|Phono Pre Gain|
I'm going to say that 64 dB is probably not enough for a 0.2 mV output cartridge. I have the ARC Ref 2SE phonostage w/ 72 db output and when I had the Ortofon Anna (also w 0.2 mV output), it was not loud enough for me. I could hear the hiss fro...
|Discuss The Viv Lab Rigid Arm|
Nobody is going to build a "fundamentally flawed arm" and sell it for thousands of dollars. I too have not heard of a single bad review of the arm from owners. It's one of those things - unless you try it yourself, it'll just be speculation.
|Whats on your turntable tonight?|

|XLR to RCA plugs or cable|
@lohanimal - what custom cable did you end up ordering? I am trying to connect a KAB RF1 rumble filter between amp and phonostage. I bought a pair of XLRF-RCA and XLRM-RCA (Mogami) from Amazon and it works fine. However, I might go down the sil...
|Best way to keep REL sub from “hopping around” at high volumes|
+1 @dekay That's what I use as well. However, I have wood floors so for the most part they stay put - there are few tracks that can move them. Sounds like you have slippery floors, so it may be at least worth a try.
