Help with turntable setup?
The Soundsmith website has good explanations and how-to on setup. 
Calling for recommendations: Speakers for a very lively room
I have a narrow 15 foot by 40 deep room.  One whole wall is almost all glass.  The other wall opens into a hallway and further back a kitchen.  I have Ohm Walsh Talls 18 inches out  from the corners, (stereo subs in the corners) and don’t notice r...

Request for a recommendation on a small footprint floor standing speaker
I have Ohm Walsh 4, soon to be 5, and love them.  Judging by how long the 4s lasted, they should be my last speakers.  If you go that way, make sure to call Ohm to get the right size for your room.  Maybe it’s 2000.  I think their website has a ch... 
REL T5 vs REL T7 subwoofers
I have only ever experienced two stereo T5 subs, placed in the front wall corners as recommended by REL, with ohm Walsh 4s in front of them. Perfect for my tastes.  With all the furniture in the room also, I haven’t had any base management issues ... 
Fix for B&K Component Reference 20
Musical Designs/Concepts has mods for some B&K.  I almost sent my pro 10mc and ex 442, but gave a used Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum II, about the same price as sending the amps to Musical DEsigns, a tryout and kept it.  The dealer I bought the Ro... 
New Hobby Ultrasonic Record Cleaning
In my experience, the Vibrato 135khz is certainly worth a reasonable wait.  I do 4 records at a time.  I think Cleanervinyl had a higher frequency US tank, but it was more expensive, and as I recall, I didn’t know who made it.  I had a quality iss... 
New Hobby Ultrasonic Record Cleaning
I use the basic Cleanervinyl rotisserie and two tanks.  One is a cheapo 40hz (kHz?) and a Vibratto 135hz that sweeps.  I first do the disc doctor fluid with the brushes, and without letting it dry on the records or rinsing, spin them in the 40 tan... 
All New Totaldac D100 Loudspeakers....The HOLY GRAIL OF SPEAKERS ?!
I would expect proper grammar advertising a $15,000 speaker, and certainly not a mistake in the 4th sentence.  Hire someone.  It reads like the instructions for some cheap kitchen gadget my wife bought at the Asian market 
User Error Disaster
Musical designs/concepts had mod kits for my B&K EX442.  I was considering sending them my amp and B&K preamp, but ended up getting an integrate tube amp 
Question for Mofi Ultradeck owners
After rereading your post, if you don’t have to jack any of the legs up to level the table, or should have enough room to lift the back hinges out of their slots, but clearing the back of the tone arm could be a issue.   Think you need at least 8 ... 
Question for Mofi Ultradeck owners
I bought the Mofi Studiodeck.  The stated height is with the dust cover on.  The cover does not add any to the depth or width.  I don’t think I would trust the hinges.  It is either on or off, but I don’t have room above it to raise the dust cover... 
Pure analog system with high power
I have been very pleased with a used Rogue Cronus Magnum II.  No Dacs, etc.  The III appears to have a more sophisticated phono stage.  Mine is 100 tube watts and easily drives my Ohm Walsh 4 as well as my previous 200W solid state. 
Phono Stage That's not Schiit
I am very happy with a used Musical Surroundings Nova Phonomena.  I believe I got mine for about $600.  The rest of the chain is Soundsmith SMMC 1, Rogue Cronus Magnum II, and Ohm Walsh 4, so i’m not sure how resolving it is for minor phono stage ... 
How many vinyl albums do you own you listen to?
I also have about 7 lineal feet, mostly used buys.  I’ve been buying more new the last few years, so maybe 1/3 are new or quality used purchases.  I definitely don’t need that many and don’t listen to all of them.  No desire to sell through discoe...
