Why are there no tube televisions anymore?
When I was a kid we had a large tube TV in a wooden console, as was common then. It stopped working. My excellent idea at the time was to remove the large picture tube and replace it with my fish tank. Worked out great, but what to do with that la... 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Reuben, Jeff Beck's Loud Hailer is playing right now at home at your suggestion.  Got it a few months ago, along with some other later Beck recordings, and only played it that one time. Sounds even better the second time around. Mike

Luxman 590axii ventilation
Call the Luxman tech first and confirm that will work before voiding your warranty and possibly damaging an expensive piece of equipment. I was surprised my Luxman 507uX required so much space around it. First time the fan breaks down or you forge...

Let’s make this a better community!? One final shot?
The ignore feature is an excellent idea. There are definitely a very few people or trolls it would be nice to be able to tune out. These individuals definitely turn away participants from Audiogon. I would think having this forum a more pleasant p... 
replace Mcintosh with Luxman
After purchasing Magico A3’s a couple years or so ago I started looking for a suitable integrated amp for them. When asked, a Magico VP said they were demoing the A3’s at shows with Luxman amps, their 509X’s if I recall. I phoned Luxman too who me... 
Is your now then?
When I was in college from 1970-74 it was JBL Century 100 speakers. a $400 Pioneer Integrated Amp (can’t remember the model) received as a present, and a Dual turntable. I’ve tried to keep the system simple as possible, adding only a CD player and...
