Calling all Oracle TT owners.
gregorytownsend I've looked at the Graham TA's, & I see there's a series of wire & pullies in their design. As Scotty said (Mr. Scott) "the fancier the plumbing the more likely to clog the drain"So I ask, aren't the Graham's fickle, &... 
Replace a 0.5 mV Grado Reference Sonata 1 for a Dynavector-DV20X2-H 2.8 mV ???
Thx Yog,There's more info there than there is in the owner's manual, LOL.

yogiboy Where did you find the preamp has an input sensitivity of 2 mv? I’ve been looking.As far as Grado is concerned, let me reiterate what I wrote in my post. "(which I may add IMHO the support at Grado was virtually ZERO)". I called Grado, ga...

Sonata 1 Matt M,great input, some real relevance to your reply, but I'm a bit uncertain with your reponse - " I own both these cartridges ".Buy that do you mean a Sonata 1 & a  20x2 (low) or, did you mean Dynavectors....10X5 (high)... 
Cartridges: Complete Scam?
Holly #x$& Madavid0, I can't believe some of the replies you're getting for a pertinent question. Some of these Files have got theirs heads right up there. Stevecham, " I choose to save my input for a more enlightened and deserving poster". ... 
what speakers to buy
Can you give us approx dimension & configuration specs of your digs? 
Disappointed w/ Klipsch Heresy III. Now what?
  Dear Brook, There's a number of points that need to be asked, so I'll start with this, where did you hear, and I quote you "they were supposed to have real punch in the low mid-range, so I could hear the upright Bass". - - - - - Klips... 
Comparing Classe' Audio's DR9 with Krell's ksa300s
There's a potential alternative Dave. If you have the right set-up, bi-wire one amp in stereo to your woofers, & the other amp in stereo to your upper end.Bit extravagant but no more so than mono blocks.BillAny comments out there from the ... 
Comparing Classe' Audio's DR9 with Krell's ksa300s
Dave, DR9's are not balanced, they are designed to operate in stereo & sound considerably more open, real, as well as transparent than they do in bridged mono even though they have the option to do so. I bought my DR9's as a pair,...

Spend more money on the amp or the pre-amp?
OK lemaze .... here's another suggestion.Use the volume control on your Rega & run it straight through an amp.For $200-$300 dollars you can pick up a used Carver M400, or a David Hafler DH-200.An audio steel @ twice the price & both wil... 
Spend more money on the amp or the pre-amp?
 Not sure what your audio approach philosophy is here "lemaze", but I can tell you this, go after two rabbits at the same time - you'll wind up with neither one. In other words 1 good system is better than two mediocre.  At any rate it seems that... 
Spend more money on the amp or the pre-amp?
If I'm not mistaken group, (leemaze) was using $800 dollars as a nominal figure, a hypothetical to obtain a ratio, not an actual amount for his budget, - eg: 50/50 or 75/25. Still "leemaze" my experience would have to say .... it depends.  Are ... 
JBL Everest DD67000 vs. Avantgarde Duo Mezzo
The Avantgarde Duo Mezzo's are a work of art, they also have a broader frequency response than the JBL’s.That said, with the wrong amp the ADM’s can have an in your face sound. On the other hand I have found JBL’s to be .... well - sound like JBL’... 
classe twenty five and classe fifteen
This is a question is ear marked for "mofimadness" (the Classe dealer).Mo - you were saying a couple of things. #1: that the DR-9 was 1of your faves. Is it a sweeter amp than the Classe' - 25? #2: you said you ran your a pair of DR-8's in mono. I ...
