Tekton Impact
BTW, my post name is NOT meant to represent Tekton Designs.  It was just a name I picked because non of the other 25 names I picked worked... I suggest either putting that quote at the bottom of every one of your posts or changing your moniker,... 
Nick Drake: Five Leaves Left/ Is it just a bad recording
A little off topic I apologize, but if you like that ND album you may enjoy the Jason Parker Quartet's version. Available for download or CD, sounds very nice to me. 
The "most foolish" loudspeaker tweak/upgrade ... is
Long ago, I purchased a pair of speaker cables that dealer said were directional. He told me if I didn’t like the sound initially, he said to reverse the connections. Go figure....... My dealer told me the same thing.At first they made the music ... 
Why no tube loaner/testdrives--It's hard being an audiophile
I'd say the reason there are no "tube loaners" is that tubes don't have serial numbers so someone could borrow a new set and return a spent set. Cables don't have serial numbers either, but they aren't consumed with use. 
Audio Technica ART9 sounds awful
The soundstage is shifted to the left. I never heard either situation from the 10x5... Well it would seem that there is something wrong here, either with the cartridge itself or installation/setup. 
Tekton Double Impacts
I have owned 2 pairs of Eric's speakers, still own one pair. Without question great value for the money. I spoke to Eric on the phone several times and was impressed, seems like a real good guy.Someone in this thread is posting not about pseudo sc... 
Parallel SET with sufficient power
2 for 2.That's all the advice I would need. 
What to do with old LP inner sleeve?
If the original inner sleeve has info specific to the album I keep it. If it's just one of those so very common generic label advertisement sleeves I chuck it. I don't care about the generics, and I doubt anyone else does either.  
A speaker that looks like a driver or a driver that looks like a speaker?
Can you get one finished, or do they only come in kit form? 
Anticables: Scam?
I went on the site of Anticables. Looks less impressive than Radio Shack. $600 for a pair? Really? Thanks for letting us know. I'll share this with our local audio club. Share what, that they need a better website? 
What is best tweeter height for the Devore O/96?
The 0/96s sure do sound nice to me, and I think the look is really nice. I own the somewhat similar Ponginae P/99s from a different manufacturer.Are the DeVores worth the price tag? If you believe they are then they are, same as everything else. 
Pani ... New ART-9 up and running ...
@Avanti - In my system I can only compare to my Rega Apollo CD player, but of course I have heard many other good digital sources.The Art-9 is pretty much the opposite of dull/dark in my system. I bi-amp and have the ability to adjust tweeter vs. ... 
Pani ... New ART-9 up and running ...
I have only about 10 hrs. on the Art-9 after 2 weeks (travel, just gets in the way sometimes). I have the loading on my Pass Labs Ono @ 1,000R and have not played with it. I haven't played with VTF either, it is set at factory recommen... 
Pani ... New ART-9 up and running ...
j_damon - I don't know how common it is to have a bent canti, but I just received my Art-9 today and it is perfectly straight. Not sure what cart you're coming from but to me it's worth the price already, even before break-in. 
Pani ... New ART-9 up and running ...
Pani good to hear about the Cadenda Blue because it would have been exactly that cartridge or the Dyna XX2 for me. papa - Newcastle works for me.I'll give my impressions after I receive it and let it settle in.
