A Soundsmith Re-tip Believer
I've had quite a few cartridges retipped by van den Hul over the years. He did a great job on my Dynavector Ruby. Since he has retired I would be tempted to use Soundsmith because I hate to throw a good cartridge away.

I'd just move into the high end store. 
How to remove ground pin on power cable
While it's not likely to get a shock from a sub, if it was grounded, I would try and keep it that way. The ground loop is most likely from cable TV. Unscrew it and see. Find a way to break the ground there. Jensen Transformers is a good solution.h... 
How do I stop the Humming from my LP12?
It should be on the tonearm cable. If not add one the chassis or tonearm. There should be a screw someplace you can loosen and wrap a wire around.

The Speakon connectors on REL subs may be superb but they are still just old timey high level speaker jacks underneath the pomp and circumstance.

Speakon connectors are just speaker connectors. No different. Almost all subs have them.

You have a point Sounder. Just pointing out cheaper and better options.Chaz, it’s not fake news. Try listening to a simple acoustic recording then a complicated classical piece and see which seems more detailed.Tweak, any quality sub can be integr...

Of course the RELs sound more detailed because they are producing less music that would otherwise compete with the higher bass frequencies. The less bass a speaker produces the more detailed they seem. By saying you will never play anything with b...

Okay. I have 30 years in the business of selling and installing systems and tuning them for many satisfied customers. I never intended to insult you Ric. I'm sure your system sounds good. I just know the RELs are twice the money of the SVS subs wh...

No. I haven't heard them in my system but I've heard them in systems I'm well aware of. Setup is the key to making a sub work without thumping. The REL subs are decent but overpriced for less in many educated opinions.

The SVS subs are half the price of the RELs. And that's just one example.
