Jazz for aficionados
Do any of you jazz fans have the Resonance Records (2017) pressing of Wynton Kelly/Wes Montgomery "Smokin' in Seatlle"?  Just trying to decide if it's worth the hefty cost of trying to obtain it on vinyl.  I know only 4 tracks (about 19 minutes) i...

30 gauge looks like this.  Ummm, slightly less than ideal ;-)https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/31qMK8N9XiL.jpg  
3 great tube preamps. Which would you purchase?

Looking for great jazz guitar recordings - any recommendations?
+1 on Wes Montgomery, especially his albums with the Wynton Kelly Trio... like Smokin' at the Half Note  and Full House recorded live in Berkeley. 
Who are the Kings of Audiogon?
@tuberistI strongly disagree with your preposterous assertion that so many threads become contentious!;-) 
How far have ss amps really come in the last twenty years?
There's another aspect that comes into play which I think is perhaps the biggest advance - price for performance on an inflation-adjusted basis you get way more today. 
Need a new cartridge recommendation for clearudio concept black.
