Do any still use an older high end tuner from the past?....
I have a Kenwood 600T and even though it needs aligning I really like it.Robert

I also have had no response via email from them regarding a used Nakamichi DR-1 I bought a few weeks ago that has a problem that was not disclosed.  I sent emails to two different people including support.This is disappointing since I was thinking... 
Lyra Kleos or Kleos SL?
Hello,I recently started a thread on this,  you may want to search.Anyway,  I went from a Kleos to a Kleos SL with the JC3+.  It will work fine as long as you don't sit really close to efficient speakers.  There is some increase in noise level but... 
JC3+ With Kleos SL?
Thanks Joe for your thoughts.  I was just listening to Birdcage from Sophia Pfister.  That LP is one of Fremer's recommendations.  The acoustic guitar on one of the cuts is quite wonderful,  the "it's in the room" sensation.  Overall the LP, which... 
JC3+ With Kleos SL?
Hello Again,To answer my original question,  the Kleos SL works very nicely into the JC3+.  Now on to the sound:So I have the Kleos SL installed and roughly setup. I say roughly because the Shure stylus gauge is not good for two decimal places an... 
JC3+ With Kleos SL?
You are most welcome.And yeah,  the reviews have been all good.  I am betting the JC3+ is still the one to beat anywhere near it's price.And on the original topic,  my Kleos SL is on it's way from Japan to Audioquest and may ship to me by the end ... 
JC3+ With Kleos SL?
Hey,Well I sent the Kleos back to upgrade to the SL and am waiting.The JC3+ works very well with the Kleos.  My only minor complaint is that it may be a touch forward compared to the other phono stages I have had in the system.  It does have depth... 
Brooklyn DAC+ Anyone?
I’m betting that will sound pretty good. You may want to consider a cartridge that is fuller in the mids.I would look into Audirvana unless Roon does something additional that you need. Audirvana does not require a subscription and allows access t... 
I’m pretty sure I’ve lost my mind...
Cables do sound different, but I am not so sure past a certain point the price is a factor.  I think it is more how the cables interact with the system.   
I’m pretty sure I’ve lost my mind...
You may want to read Fremer's article about the Kirmuss guy.  Not sure all is Kosher there. 
Brooklyn DAC+ Anyone?
I have not tried the Control Panel via WiFi, doesn't it require a USB connection to a computer?  I would agree the display is too small for most of us to see from the chair.You may want to temporarily run longer cables and put the DAC+ close to yo... 
JC3+ With Kleos SL?
Interesting.  I said I had not made up my mind in advanced.  If most replies had said the JC3+ would not be suitable with the SL then I would have saved the money and just had the Kleos checked and rebuilt if necessary.  Based on the data and thin... 
JC3+ With Kleos SL?
I think they are just being safe and don’t want folks unhappy and trying to return a handbuilt $4k cartridge. Not sure I mentioned it but they did say my setup should work fine. I do have other phono pres, including a tubed one with gobs of gain t... 
JC3+ With Kleos SL?
So let me quote Lyra and then I have a question.  They say, "Most users (and phono stages) will benefit from the regular Kleos with much higher output and considerably more energy; resulting in a much better signal-to-noise ratio."  The energy par... 
JC3+ With Kleos SL?
I had not made up my mind at the time of the original post.Interesting you got distortion.  The gain of the phono stage is fixed so I would expect noise but not distortion.  A low input will give a lower output.  One's preamp may distort trying to...
