Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
That TNT article is really great. Makes a lot of sense. Thanks for linking to it. I think one of the arguments I could not buy is the universal 100K loading, especially as I've met several MM users (esp. AKG P8ES users) who were using less than 47... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
Raul and other AKG owners: I've read someone recommend that for AKG P8ES (regular or Supernova, the best result was had when loading at 33K. Any experience loading P8ES at loading at 33K rather than at 100K? Thanks. 
What is the chain of importance in analog system ?
Great discussion. I agree that one cannot really approach this without thinking holistically... the entire analog playback chain should be considered a single, musical biosystem. That said, I do believe that one should start from the foundation of...

What amplifier for Harbeth HL-5?

How Many Turntables Have You Owned
Two.When I was a kid, I had this Yamaha TT that came with this all-in-one system. Very poorly made, but surprisingly agile in sound. Served me perfectly. Gave up the ghost and I didn't bother having it fixed. Now: La Platine Verdier with terrazzo ... 
speakers for classical music
I've heard Hansen Audio Prince v2s, and they were tremendous in all respects. I noticed that there was a tangential discussion on the "Rite of Spring" versions, and for my money, Valery Gergiev's live account is hard to beat. It's by far the most ...
