Speakers
Auto parts stores sell inexpensive scopes with a small screens for looking into very small spaces.  I have used one to look into cylinders though the spark plug hole and the valve guides in intake ports. They have a light.  You should be able to f... 
Vinyl goes green!
Some companies tried greener car wiring.  Mice found it delicious.  
Speakers need to be placed close to back wall. Help
Check out Ohm Walsh.  Size of the speaker depends on the size of the room, so if the room is on the smaller size they should meet your budget.  I bought them because my speakers need to be close to the wall and corners, and I love them.  I just go... 
Rogue pharaoh II or Cronus Magnum III ?
I’ve got the Cronus Magnum II and love it.  Both it and my speakers, Ohm Walsh 5000 make magic with an ancient used LP War’s The World is a Ghetto.  Acoustic, like Gillian Welch, Vanessa Fernandez, is sublime, but it really shines with busy percus...

At an average of probably 2 hours a day, my Ohm Walsh 5000 upgrades improved for a couple months, most noticeably in the crispness and detail of bass and all percussion.  Bass notes and kick drum hit at the same time are distinct.  You’re in for a... 
B & K EX-442 Sonata Series Owners Manual
I was also unable to find a manual for the Sonata series EX 442 in several persistent googling sessions.  As close as I got was the link provided be bkeske. I have since moved on to another amp, but the B&K amp and preamp treated me well for ...

My 4-5000 upgrade took longer than expected, but they had a supply issue with the metal used on the speaker cans.  I still had the old Ohm Walsh 4’s with a bad crossover to use, though.  I can only say for me and my room (a very long sidewall of l... 
No frills speaker manufacturers
Used and neglected 80s vintage Ohm Walsh talls if you can find them on a fairly local Craigslist, and then buy upgraded speakers to install in the original cabinets.  With luck the cabinets are presentable, and the new speakers come with new grill... 
What should I expect after installing a new power management system?
My house was built in the 50s with mostly ungrounded circuits.  When appliances or the community well next door kick on, lights dim.  Early on, I ran power up from the basement so there was no noise when the refrigerator cycled on.  A used PS AUDI... 
Ps audio aspen FR 30 Loudspeakers
I haven’t seen or heard them, and probably never will.  I do trust, though, that they spent years coming up with the very best speaker they could.  Those with more disposable income than me can judge.  
tone arm with 10gr mass with 15 gram weight cartridge?
I went down this rabbit hole of concern when I had to buy a new turntable.  I wanted to use my very light Soundsmith SSMC1 B&O cartridge on a table with a much heavier arm than the B&O table.  I bought the table before I realized this migh... 
The magic of outdoor listening
I’ll take a mood elevator regardless   
The magic of outdoor listening
Don’t know if it’s boomer rock, but I have learned from my neighbors that there apparently is a streaming channel called something like “Top AM Top 40 hits of the early 80’s.”  They have an impressively loud and distorted Bluetooth speaker of some... 
MM phono preamp upgrade for $1000?
I have the first version of the Nova Phonomena.  My listening tastes are probably similar to yours.  The Nova Phonomena does particularly well with percussion and bass rich music such as Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel, War, etc.    
Ohm Walsh Talls (opinions sought)
If you do try a pair, give them a week or two to settle in.  My bass was crazy at first.
