Marantz SA-14 v1 or v2
I need to qualify this post buy stating that I only heard the version 1 in a store system and the version 2 in my system using different preamp/amp and speakers. The SACD playback to my ears sounded very similiar while the cd playback was improved... 
ARC LS22 to CJ 16ls significant upgrade?
I upgraded to the CJ 16LS 11 from an Audio Research LS25 MK11 and have been quite pleased. I found the LS25 an exceptional preamp but rather dry and noninvolving in my system.(ss amp) The CJ is more refined, detailed and overall more musical in my... 
Svetlana 572-3 tube---Still available?
Also had the Cary 572 Monos with same tube issues. My understanding is the 572 is out of production but Cary may still have them available.

ABCKO Stones' SACD releases vs. MoFi Stones LP Set
I own both the MoFi lp set and many of the Stones SACDs. There is no question that the Mofi lps are some of the best pressings of the Stones catalog. They both have their strong points but I prefer the SACDs for sound quality. To my ears they are ...

Anyone know of a price listing for used lp's
As a long time former record store owner I can say the for the most part "Price Guides" are the best case scenario for the seller.If one has the time and energy one could probably sale some of the recordings listed in these guides for the prices l...

which tube pre-amp good for Jeff Rowland model10?
I should preface this by saying that I have had tubes in my system since the 1960's so I lean toward the tube sound. The Model 10 to my ears is the best ss amplifier I have heard. It is articulate, detailed and full at the frequency extremes but i...
