Has anyone finally decided to sell their Turntable and Vinyl collection?
If I had a turntable deck rig, I’d get rid of it as fast as possible. Thankfully I have an analog audio system with a turntable.  
Help
The OP’s statement “I have no clue” sums it up quite well.

Help what? 
Has anyone finally decided to sell their Turntable and Vinyl collection?
I would never want to sell my record collection or my turntables. Half because I love the experience and half because I live in Canada where very few people can afford nice things, let alone be aware they exist and want them, so the market isn’t t... 
Proper Ground for Tonearm and Turntable
Everyone knows that Zerostat is the first step to clean vinyl signal reproduction. If you weren’t drunk, you would realize that the “ground sweep arm” as you refer to, only neutralizes static charge that exists in the groove *before* the stylus, a...

Harmonizer’s what? 
... WHAT POWER CORD(S) ARE PLAYING IN YOU SYSTEM TODAY?
All OEM here. Tried the aftermarket and found zero improvement in SQ.  
Proper Ground for Tonearm and Turntable
Mijostyn you are very wrong on all counts. First and foremost, the tonearm requires a signal ground from the phono stage, and if you tie it to the plinth, you have just created a ground loop. Second, the phono stage needs to be grounded to the pre... 
Best RG6/RCA Compression Connectors for Subwoofer Cable
2low you should open your mind a little. Monster has made some of the best cables available at any price. Just because Monster is popular and has been around since the late 70’s doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it.  
Proper Ground for Tonearm and Turntable
The tonearm is the only thing that should be grounded to the phono stage. If you must ground the plinth, it should be to your building ground (usually the cold water pipe coming in from the municipal water supply, only if it’s metallic) through a ... 
Anyone use auto lifters? Opinions
@mijostyn the lift designed around an optical sensor is reality, and it came at a premium on the Technics SL-1700mk2 and SL-1600mk2 turntables. Those were essentially the thinking man’s / audiophile’s variant of the SL-1200mk2 that rap-“DJ”s are s... 
Have you been surprised by power cable changes? s
Millercarbon, why are you getting so defensive? If you could rationalize how your treasured power cords supposedly improve sound quality as you say,  I’d take you seriously. So the ball’s in your court to explain how these magical power cords supp... 
Have you been surprised by power cable changes? s
The power cord only comes into play on amplifiers if of insufficient gauge for the current draw. Without power conditioning, power cords can bring noise from switch-mode power supplies into the audio chain if filtering on each component is inadequ... 
Anyone use auto lifters? Opinions
Mijostyn I have a Technics SL-1700mk2, which doesn’t engage the arm return motor until an optical sensor triggers it. It’s like having your cake and eating it too. Because the system is not physically in contact with the arm pivot while a record i... 
1973
I was 8 yrs old then and just got a cassette tape recorder. I marvelled at the big stereo systems with reel to reel tape decks and speakers that weighed as much as I did then. Finally this year I bought a nice TEAC A-3300SX  reel to reel deck, my ...
