|Hey Electricians - Please help|
Tmsorosk, I am surprised to hear you say the Richard Gray stuff did more harm than good. Can you explain your experience a bit more? In my experience the 400 I have in my system has made a big difference in a positive way. What are you using now t...
|Hey Electricians - Please help|
Based on the suggestions given I tried a couple of things and concluded that it is most prominent when my amp is set to the phono stage. The theory of the switch arcing seems to be correct because the phono cartridge acts like a mic and amplifies ...
|Richard Gray owners ISO..|
As I understand it the RGPC units do not have surge protection because it is unnecessary. The function of the unit is to create a "bucket" of power within the unit to be made available to power hungry components. This bucket is constantly being dr...

|Do You Love Music or Do You Love Hi-Fi?|
Of all of my addictions my addiction to music is the one that has been a positive influence on myself and my family. Those who are married to a spouse who also loves music might be able to identify with what I am saying here. We listen to music to...
|LOOKING FOR A GOOD HDMI CABLE|
I recently bought one from Signal Cables and am very happy with it. I think it was around $40. I have had problems with ultra cheap HDMI cables. They are not all made the same, but you don't need to spend a bucket load to get great quality.

|What Cartridge for Clearaudio Performance?|

|Parasound JC3 or Ayre P-5xE|
I have had my JC-3 for a few weeks now and am just now settling into it with everything dialed the way I like it. It is not fully broken in yet, but I can say with sincerity that all the great reviews of it are correct. This is an excellent preamp...
|Your First Concert was.....|
The Who - St. Paul Civic Center, October 15th, 1980. I was 15. Keith Moon had died less than a year before this tour, so Kenny Jones drummed for the. Simply awesome.
|What Mobile Fidelity lp or cd is your fav ?|
Pixies Surfer Rosa is sublime, and even better sounding than Doolittle. Elvis Costello Armed Forces is what I am spinning right now and it is also great.
|DIY Question: Well Tempered Bearing Cup Upgrade|
The cup leaks oil through the threads of the bearing inserts. I have tried plumbers tape, which worked pretty well for a while, but now is leaking again. I guess I should try Loctite?However, the bearing on my Clearaudio spins much more smoothly t...
|New favorite VINYL Album?|
Fleet Foxes Helplessness Blues is sublime in both music and sound quality.
|New Vinyl - "scratchy"?|
I don't know the answer but I can attest to similar issues I have had with some new records I have purchased.Tom Waits Mule Variations is one such example. I am on my second copy due to noisy grooves, and the new copy is just as bad as the first. ...
|Rega Brio-R Break-in time.|
I am currently breaking in a Rega Elicit and have had similar experiences to yours. In searching the archives I found several threads that said my amp needs 100-150 hours of break in time, so I am leaving mine on with a CD playing on repeat and th...
