50 kilo amps are not cheap to ship to the US from China. Trust me on that. I live in Korea. It costs a hell of a lot to ship something from the US to me. As for the Chinese made amps, I'd recommend getting them through Singapore. I got my Line Mag... 
New Hobby Ultrasonic Record Cleaning
"No way I am putting Texas tap water on my LP’s."My tap water isn't great either. It's not about the quality of the tap water, though filtering can be used to improve it, but rather what the water does under high pressure to clean the record. I st... 
New Hobby Ultrasonic Record Cleaning
I second Herman's post about the Gem Dandy Record Cleaner. I still use my Ultrasonic V-8 machine for a final treatment after the Gem Dandy treatment. I add a few tablespoons of alcohol and a 6-8 drops of Photoflo to the tank, per David Radcliffe's... 
Replace a Rogue Tempest with Cayin CS845A, Ayon Triton 2, Unison Research, or Mastersound?
I just wanted to follow up on this thread. I recently purchased and received the Line Magnetic 805ia integrated amplifier, the Singapore Edition, from Robert Lai of Live Acoustics in Singapore. Robert’s prices are extraordinarily good, and unlike ... 
Is easy to know when a non english speaker is writting?
Yes, it is pretty easy to tell when someone is foreign to the English language. It's also pretty easy to tell when a native speaker of English is also foreign to the language. None of it really matters though. If you apply the principle of charity...

ASR Emitter Exclusive II. I've owned mine now for nearly nine years, and it isn't going anywhere. About 35K new or thereabouts.

For the sake of posterity, here is a Line Magnetics 501IA driving a pair of Lawrence Audio Cello speakers, the entry level floorstanders:https://youtu.be/fixfuwyt--g

Wow! This is all terribly exciting! I had not really heard about Line Magnetic, but you've all set me off researching and listening through Youtube, and I must say I'm overjoyed at what I'm hearing. Thanks for all the terrific recommendations. Kee... 
Used speakers: Cleaning tips?
"WOW an answer to a post 10 1/2 years later!!!"Well, I got the information that I used to get these cloths from this and other related threads from the same period. It makes little sense to start a  new thread regarding a product that's been disco... 
Are scratch LPs part of the game ?
The Pledge Dust and Allergen Cloths are no longer being made. I used them for as long as this thread has existed. I'm now on my last pack. What alternatives exist today that do the same job?

Is the Last Record Preservative system a worthwhile investment?
My experience with Last initially was not good. I found it really deadened the sound, the dynamics of the recordings. It seemed to make them a lot darker. I was cleaning the older records I had purchased more recently and that had surface noise. I...
