|Cartridge for the JMW 10.5i|
I would recommend a Benz Micro cartridge based on your requirements. Look at the ACE models or the Wood body models if your budget allows.
|Attn Vinyl lovers - what CD Player do you use?|
Sony SCD XA9000ES. Wondering if the XA5400ES is an upgrade or about the same... anyone?
|Looking for Wagner recommendations|
Sometimes it's better to not know much, or anything, about a composer before listening to his/her music. An understanding of Wagner (or anyone) is essential if you are to truly understand his works at a very scholarly level, but not required to en...
|Speed strobe recommendation.|
Hi, I have a KAB and it works great, but I still feel kind of foolish for spending $100 for a printed piece of cardboard and a strobe light. I guess that's why we're called audiophools. I haven't used the others.Cheers.
|Artists of the Decade|
Matchstikman, Yes, I refer to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Of all the new release albums I bought this decade, it's the one I would keep if I could only have one. As you don't get Wilco, so I don't get Radiohead. No one is wrong or right. I'm just glad ...
|Artists of the Decade|
Hits: Wilco (Had best album of this decade, IMHO) ShinsFlaming LipsDeath Cab for CutieThe many projects of Jack White (Stripes, Raconteurs, etc.)Radiohead (Undeniable, though not my bag) Misses:As with any decade, too many to list here. But I hav...
|What gives? CD’s, Solid State?|
I think there's a simple answer here. If you still have records, get a turntable. If not, proceed using the advice already given and try to get the most out of your digital/SS rig. Besides, I would make an educated guess that 90% of your problem w...
|Vinyl and SACD rule when it comes to...|
Dmc's experience was/is exactly my own.
|record stores in Chicago|
Krelldog, Have you ever bothered to thank the guy who didn't sell you the "We Are The World" record?Glad you had a good time, John. Chicago is tops. Cheers.
|Looking for good quality Bob Seger cds|
I have a number of Bob Seger LPs and none of them sounded particularly good. Fair to below average. Considering that, finding a good digital version doesn't seem too likely. Let us know if you find something.
|Double Albums/CDs, curse or blessing?|
Most single CD's released in the CD era, if they are released on vinyl, are 2 record sets. How do we account for these?
|New To Vinyl... Seeking Recomendations|
Well, this has to be the first time I've seen "Abbey Road" referred to as "The CD with 'Come Together' on it." Just some good-natured ribbing, Ponnie. Hope you don't mind. But... he WAS looking for vinyl recommendations. That band that had John ...
|Phono.. does this mean?|
And don't let Doug scare you out of it, either. ;) For 99% of the population before the advent of CD, Vinyl WAS plug-and-play. Here on the 'GoN, you're talking with the other 1%. The perfectionists. Keep that in mind. So go for it. Cheers.Tom
|Is Pass Labs Xono An Overkill For Rega P5 TT?|
It is by no means overkill. You have a table and cart capable of great performance. You should have a phono stage that allows you to fully experience it. That said, the XONO may expose weaknesses downstream... Cheers
|Next Analog Steps: VPI Scout Users|
Based on your priorities, I would suggest a Lyra cartridge.Cheers.
