|Carmen Sings Monk|
Albertporter, I can burn a copy for you. I'm on medical contract with only my travel system, so you would get an analog copy from my travel NAD L-40 and my Philips stand alone burner. No charge, just email address. Doug
|The Best Movie sound Tracks|
Wyatt Earp, Rob Roy, Legends of the Fall, Black Beauty, Moll Flanders, The Brothers Mulligan, Clear and Present Danger, Diva, Brother's Keeper........to name a few.
|Stupid DAC question|
The SACD question will linger until it joins the format graveyard along with Elcassette, DCC, DAT prerecorded, laser disc, Beta and 8-track. 450 titles is not even close to what I have in my personal CD collection. The software people are NOT on b...
|Your favorite blues album?|
Doug McLeod. "Come to Find."
|Lead shots for speaker stand.|
Lead shot mixed WITH the sand will give you the best of both worlds.
|Stupid DAC question|
Go for the Rega and then be able to upgrade even further later. The transport is very good and will serve well later with an external DAC. Keep it simple.
|The "right" speaker|
Totem Forest. Dynamic with strong imaging and bass.
|Best Unknown Jazz Album|
Francy Boland/Kenny Clarke "Now Hear Our Meanin'." Screaming Big Band European style.
|Fired up the TT for the first time|
This is like giving an alcoholic a bottle of Night Train, but in Kansas City is a shop with at least 3,000 sq.ft. of vinyl. Pretty sure I remember it as Streetside Records and Tapes 816 561 1580. Best of luck and I'm not responsible.
|Bookshelf speakers with the best bass...|
I agree with Sugarbrie, great stands like Sound Org. with sand and lead shot, Blue Tac on top will certainly tighten and deepen bass. For $2500 the Reference 3A DeCapos are superb.
|Best tube pre under 1500?|
Antique Sound. The magic of Antique Sound is it already sounds great with Chinese tubes and they are easily upgraded with better tubes and caps. Good luck.
|Yamaha T-2 Tuner, how good musically?|
I've always enjoyed VINTAGE Yamaha pieces, found them to be musical, have owned several pieces, receivers and tuners. However, the Luxman stuff is better and certainly more musical, period. The T-450 or any of the late 70s very early 80s pieces ar...
|ML Aerius/room tweak|
Byas, Let's start from the beginning. These speakers love well designed tube gear and if they sound a bit bright and out of control, it may well NOT be the room, but rather the equipment. I've run these before and they display none of what you men...
|Cary 300SEI drive LS3/5A?|
LS3/5As are very particular about QUALITY of amplificaton and not necessarily quantity. Should work fine in a smaller space. Have not run your amp, but have run LS3/5As in many venues. Seen them trash 100 wpc of Pioneer amplification and yet lovin...
|I blew my speaker....Please help|
Many things could be wrong with the amplifier and/or the hook-up in general. Start with taking the amp to a qualified tech, fixing that problem and then carefully reviewing speaker cable integrity. Good luck.
