What has been your costliest mistake in this hobby?
Can we take the personal attacks out of this please? Settle up or agree not to sell each other anything anymore. 
Why the truth is not in them ??
I am unfollowing this discussion which has gone off the rails to a ridiculous tangent

What is this, a philosophy course? C’mon guys.

that’s why I leave the selling to the dealers 
Mat for Rega P10
I got my Washi because the static caused the mat to come up with the record sometimes. I don’t think the felt one from Rega is a piece of junk at all. I trust them as they do extensive testing and I’m sure it sounds best. It doesn’t deteriorate ov...

I also had a dealer sell something for me who "forgot" he sold it and didn't send me a check. I found out by accident when I stopped by his store when I was in the neighborhood. When he couldn't find it, he checked his receipts and said someone so...

I sold to commercial accounts for over 30 years and can't deal with consumers. Whenever I sell something, I let a dealer handle it. If I've traded it in, he can either give me trade credit or take it on consignment. I even had a guy sell something...

Other mistake was selling off some non-audiophile vinyl thinking cds would sound better. Didn't get a cd player until it became apparent that new records were not being released on vinyl. I am still trying to catch up and in many cases only able t... 
What has been your costliest mistake in this hobby?
When I was first starting out in the audio addiction when I was in college and turned equipment over sometimes on a weekly basis with the idea that it would sound better (and sometimes it did), I got taken advantage by a very unscrupulous dealer w... 
Has anyone used an Audio Technica 6006 to raise the tonearm when the side is over?
Also Integrity HiFI has a new tonearm that does not touch the plinth and she was fanatical about it. Said it makes a $500 cartridge sound as good as a several thousand dollar one. Has no bearings at all, based on a cord. Said she can't keep up wit... 
Has anyone used an Audio Technica 6006 to raise the tonearm when the side is over?
Little Fwend is changing model for the Rega and you can't talk to them. Lady at Integrity HiFi is great (they make the TruLift)- instructions didn't mention adjusting the height, which took 2 seconds. Positioning it was tricky, but it is fantastic... 
Mat for Rega P10
I just got a TEAC washi mat for my Rega P8 because the Rega mat would come up when flipping or changing records sometimes due to static. This type mat came highly recommended and eliminates static. It's just 1mm thick and so far for 5 days it soun... 
Has anyone used an Audio Technica 6006 to raise the tonearm when the side is over?
Thanks. I don’t plan on moving it and my cleaning lady knows not to touch anything. I can’t see adjusting it to be much of an issue in such a small space.Haven’t heard of Little Fwend-I have to check it out. 
What are the advantages of electrostatic versus floor speakers w/wo external drivers?
I like to be able to be in different locations since my system is in my den that is open all the way back to my kitchen seating area - probably a total of 44' x 18' with some openings in the back. 
Has anyone used an Audio Technica 6006 to raise the tonearm when the side is over?
Hey lanman - just found a product called tru lift that has a special model for the P8 and P10 that doesn't touch the plinth (entire unit is inside the hole between the arm and the platter on whatever the tt sits on) and the top is under the dust c...
