to buy or not to buy (ultrasonic record cleaner)
With respect, I think it is impossible to see at that magnification what is going on; as to ultrasonic "getting into the grooves," we are really dealing with far smaller microscopic levels.The traditional factors include transducer power, placemen...

Back in the day, there was a club that met in Westchester, Rye NY specifically -- the NY Audio Society was what I think it was called, after a couple people passed on, I think it quit meeting, but I may be wrong. There was also a Chinese Audio Soc...

Miller- I'm actually a tolerant person. That's why I'm still posting here.

The "dithering" analogy is as good an explanation as any and better than most. I don't think it is psychological, but I did find that some people didn't experience it or notice a difference. And I'm one who actually prefers my system without it, s...

This is where Geoff Kaitt is sorely missed. He could explain it and add a quiz, plus tell us how it affects wormholes. Thankfully, I haven't encountered any rips in the fabric of reality when I used the one I bought.

I bought one several years ago when the Acoustic Revive rr-888 came out. It actually made me feel somewhat nauseous when I first started using it. I experimented with placement as well as using a linear power supply.I have no idea how they actuall...

@inna- the real step forward wouldn’t be the amps on the bass it would be to use horn loaded bass. And for that Avantgarde charges a couple Porsches-- not the cheap ones, either. That’s why, if and when, I may look elsewhere-- I don’t have room fo...

@inna-- been there. I've had this pair since the mid-70s, set up at one point as a mini-HQD system. I boxed them in 1990 when I bought a pair of Crosby-Quads. I promised myself that at some point I would restore the 57s and when I moved, I had the...

@rauliruegas - sorry to have confused things. I am not equating the electrostatic with the horn in any way except midrange clarity. Impedance, amp demands, etc. all different. I do run my original Quad 57s, which I have owned since around 1973-4 i...

Hi @rauliruegas - thanks, I'm not in the market, I was curious about the EMT b/c I know a few people who have the unit but never heard it. @syntax thought it was colored.The FM Acoustics line was always very expensive. At this point in my life, wi...

@syntax said "for ME, it is like a „Equalizer“ ..after listening, I closed that chapter and never looked back"-- Interesting. What are you using now as your main phono stage? I still have the Allnic, only rolled the rectifier. It really works well...

@syntax - Syn - have you heard the EMT?  
Comparison between high end preamp and av processor?
I always ran them separately to optimize both- different needs. At one point I had two Mid-Atlantic racks 6 feet high stuffed with gear for home theatre, and like a crazy man, was running all ARC tube amps except for the multiple woofers, in an ol...

A couple people who live on your side of the planet have this unit. I have not heard it, it is quite expensive, and but as Ferris Bueller said, "if you have the means...": http://emt-international.ch/e/jpa66.php  
LAMM M1.2 - Feedback - Advice - Please - anyone heard these?
I own the ML2 and owned the L2 line stage. There is something special about the ML2. I know you are looking for more power. I would recommend that you have Vlad go over the amps at some point if you buy them. If you aren't near NY where you can dr...
