Replacement for NAD 7175PE receiver? (NAD 165BEE + NAD C427 + ARC D130?)
I had two 7175 PE receivers that did exactly what you are experiencing. Disconnect everything, take the cover off, spray contact cleaner in the volume pot and turn knob back and forth. Spray cleaner in all the switches; input selector, tone contro...

Black Friday Record Store Day
Hey mofi, have you listened to the New Riders yet? I wasn’t able to get out Friday. Stopped in Saturday, two copies of it left over. I was close to buying it but passed. If it is good I may stop by tomo to see if it is still there. Thanks. 
New Rega Planar 10 coming soon
arturgorniak,You stated "the glass platter on the P8 moved horizontally on the spindle." Perhaps you were inspecting a faulty turntable. The platter on my P8 is perfectly snug.  
Mattresses, not stereos is where the money is
One man’s mattress is another man’s bass trap. 
Your last concert was to see who and when?
Boz Scaggs, October 26; fun, fun,fun. Bob Dylan October 29; best I've heard him in a long time. Never heard him play Lenny Bruce is Gone before in concert. St. Louis Symphony Nov 3; Barber's Adagio was absolutely heavenly. 
Funny thing happened after my neighbor moved.
You sure it wasn’t because he took his barking dog with him?

New to classical music
For eclectic I would also suggest Arvo Part. 
Two great recent books on music.
bdp24,As big a fan as you are of The Band I assume you have read both “This Wheel’s On Fire” by Levon Helm and “Testimony” by Robbie Robertson. If so, how would you compare “The History of the Band” to them? 
Has anyone finally decided to sell their Turntable and Vinyl collection?
stereo5,You have my respect and admiration. As I read your post the title from track 1 of Mark Knopfler’s “Kill To Get Crimson” came to mind: True Love Will Never Fade.” 
Harbeth Super HL 5 Plus room size?
I have Harbeth SHL 5+ 40th anniversary in 18x12x8 room. 36inches from rear wall. 8 feet apart. My chair is about 9 feet from the front speaker plane. Sounds great. I also have a pair of the P3esr 40th that I one afternoon put in the system using t...
