Ultimate stereo nightmare
Buddy, you need to first see if the dropped channel is from all sources. That means it’s most likely a cable between the amp and preamp, as someone else here has said. If not, I would pull everything apart and start over. When you put it back toge... 
What Does It Take To Surpass A SME V?
Jelco manufactured my Sumiko MMT. Jelco manufactured many of the arms of other very well known and very highly regarded brands. Jelco started producing arms under their their own name a few years back. COVID19 knocked them out of business, if y... 
Innovative Autio in NYC just hung up on me
My audio buying experience in NYC is as follows: - Innovative Audio, 1985: I was shopping for a turntable. The salesperson was demoing a number of tables for a group. He insisted that if you were not buying a Lyn Sondek, you were an idiot. He sai... 
Why is it that every time, lately, that I'm interested in a thread...
If people would only follow these guidelines:    
Speakers that are good with tubes
@hilde45   You can avoid the output transformer problem altogether by going with an OTL, such as atmasphere, or Futterman. I use Altec 604Cs - 101db - paired with the NY Audiolab OTL3 version of the Futterman design, converted to triode.  
Convincing your local dealer to let you try speakers at home
I've never encountered a dealer that would let me audition stuff at home, but I've been set with my gear for decades now, maybe things have changed.  
High-end-turntables
Requests for payment by wire is maybe THE classic sign of a fraudster. So sorry that you had to learn this the hard way.  
Confession: I only like Norah Jones because so many others told me to
She has always left me cold. To me, she lacks passion. She feels like a product more than an artist.   
One dedicated circuit for each mono block?
If you’re ecologically conscious, here’s another thought.    Build two solar panel arrays in your back yard. Couple them directly to each monobloc. I think that’s as pure as it gets.  An alternative would be to construct two of those big windmil... 
One dedicated circuit for each mono block?
@emergingsoul  Hey, that works for me. Especially the free part      
One dedicated circuit for each mono block?
I would ask your electric utility company to dedicate two separate transformers at the power station to each monobloc, with lines running directly from the transformers at the utility power station into each monobloc. And ask them to coat the pow... 
Only two tracks to test your system, forever!
Because I’m non-conformist:   - Baaba Maal, Mansour Seck, Djam Leelii (space, middle to hi end) - Ry Cooder, Ali Farka Toure - Talking Timbuktu (overall) - The Doors - Roadhouse Blues (bass) - Richard and Mimi Farina - Joy Going Round My Brai... 
System that sounds so real it is easy to mistaken it is not live
Yes.    My own. Sometimes.    See theaudioatticvinylsundays.com

Vintage tube sound from a modern amp
- Decware has a 3 year wait? Really? What happens if you need to have it serviced? I sure am glad I didn’t go to them. - OTLs imho are something to consider. The company that I know of is Atmasphere, but I believe there are others. I believe the...
