Refresh Ohm Walsh 4s or Walsh 5000 upgrade?
Thanks, mapman .  Good to hear.  I’ll put the upgrade on my old 4 cabinets that are in good shape.  That will keep the cost down.  Never had a desire to see if the grass was greener on the other side or replace the 4s until the one acted up, so th... 
Is LP distortion the record or the cartridge?
I was having a similar problem in highly modulated passages, particularly female vocal harmonies and Pink Floyd crescendos.  I only noticed this after a significant turntable upgrade.  I kept thinking it must be cartridge alignment or a compliance... 
REL t5i + ht1003
I’m running 2 REL T5s on the high input, with the neutral connectors, and resolved hum by grounding the black wires to the amp chassis

+1 on the MoFi studiodeck.  I recently purchased one, and I am impressed with how quiet even cheap used records can be when properly cleaned.  It is fully adjustable for proper cartridge alignment. 
I have been on the hunt for the best turntable I can buy. Any suggestions?
With a B&O, you’re limited to sound-smith for new cartridges, absolutely not a bad thing, they’re great but not the cheapest 
I have been on the hunt for the best turntable I can buy. Any suggestions?
I was using B&O tables with a sound-smith cartridge until the anti skate gave out on both.  I replaced them with a MoFi turntable (with the record weight).  I had no idea some of my old used vinyl could actually be silent

Exactly right.  I’ve appreciated concise constructive comments here, but I think I’ll head back to the TR2 forum and enjoying music without hyper vigilance.  Which by the way a new-to-me amp is allowing.  It’s all I need.Van Morrison’s Poetic Cham...

Thanks for all of your input.  XS137 - a couple months ago I talked to Musical Concepts/Design and they were doing B&K mods.i just lept on a chance for an in home trial of a used Rogue Cronus Magnum II this afternoon, and raced up I-5 to snatc... 
Raven Audio Nighthawk
Well, millercarbon has got me reading all I can find on Raven.  My concern is I’ve only used a B&K 200wpc (ex442) for the 15 years I’ve had a real stereo system.  It is driving refurbished Ohm Walsh 4s and two REL T5 subs.  The subs are using ... 
Possible cause of harsh mids?
Thanks.  I hadn’t thought of that.  I’ll give it a try.  I think I may have kicked it up a notch way back when I got the phono preamp (Musical Surroundings NovaPhonomena) to bring the phono volume up to the level of the tuner and CD player.  The p... 
Possible cause of harsh mids?
Can spitty sibilants and “static” in high amplitude passages also be an amplification issue?  I upgraded my turntable and think I have the alignment of a nice soundsmith cartridge fairly dialed in using Peter Lederman’s instructions and test recor...

Help me understand compliance!
I just posted by experience on another thread, but it fits here too When the second of my B&O RX2 turntables gave it up, after a fair amount of research, I ordered a Mofi Studiodeck because I knew I would need complete adjustability to mount ... 
Turntable matching to MC or MM cart.
When the second of my B&O RX2 turntables gave it up, after a fair amount of research, I ordered a Mofi Studiodeck because I knew I would need complete adjustability to mount the Soundsmith SMMC1 B&O cartridge on another turntable.  In that... 
Musical Concepts modification of B&K pre and amp?
Unsound,You are correct.  I have no itch to buy/sell/swap gear in “the search,” though I certainly understand it.  If I had the space it would be more Triumphs, maybe an old TVR.  I’m probably leaning towards Musical Concepts if they have replacem...
