Organic, musical and natural sounding speakers up to $12K
I’ve been listening to Audionote Es quite a lot of late, my usual dealer has taken on the franchise and keeps saying ”come and hear this” if I drop in with time to spare. Not the AlNiCo magnet ones and mostly internal crossover models. I love the ... 
Turntable that will be around heavy foot steps?
Townshend Rock, why stop at pods? 
broken dreams - new cartridge help please!
Did the third party Transfiguration repair ever happen and if so how did it turn out?I found this line in a Micheal Framer piece from Sept 2018 about the Ortophon Century but also covering a few recent deaths in the industry."Immutable Music’s Sei... 
Does removing anti-skating really improve sound?
My first 17d2 started sounding a bit lop sided after a few years, all right a few too many years even for a micro ridge stylus. The arm was a Rega RB300 and I’d believed the instruction to just set the magnetic anti-skate to the same value as the ... 
Is There a Speaker for Me/Impossible Requirements? (budget: $2000)
 Not so sure about Thiels in a room that size, I tried CS1.6 in my second system in a room slightly larger and couldn’t get them to sound tolerable. The Thiels had been displaced from my main system after 6 years by Naim NBLs so I was quite famili... 
Your ship just came in! time to buy new gear..?
So a cheque for £40k arrives, not from an incident with some hippos but just the result of old age and a heart attack, my mortgage has a year or two to run and I'm only paying 1.1% interest on it anyway so might as well ignore that. My system at t... 
Relaxed, musical DAC around 2k used?
I was looking for a DAC to stand in for a couple of years to go with a Naim Core via SPDif while I waited for their new streamers (which were obviously coming once the Atom etc were launched). I tried a Rega DAC-r and a Chord 2qute, initially wit... 
Personal Tuner Evolution
NAD 4020A from new in 1981 and still using it. 
Speaker positioning games. Where can I go from here?
Some years ago, including on this forum, there was a discussion about the Sumiko Masterset speaker setup procedure (http://www.hifi.ir/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/master-set.pdf) I’ve found it very useful for starting speaker setup with two differe... 
A DAC that can make digital sound analog?
Naim ND555 but it’s expensive in its homeland and the markup crossing the Atlantic isn’t trivial, oh and it’s a streamer. The DAC chip isn’t fashionable, or even produced any more but its implementation is outstanding. I’ve had one since August an... 
Vinyl heresy-overhang induced distortion is not that important
I've recently put a London Decca Maroon (mono) on the end of an Naim Aro, an arm designed around this very premise, which has no provision to adjust overhang having holes rather than slots. The arm board I have was made when I was using a DV17D3, ... 
Decca London Super Gold Compatibility Question
A unipivot is what is recommended in the instructions that come in the cartridge box. Then again Art Dudley claimed to get good results with a maroon in a Rega arm. This with the addition of a Townshend outrigger and trough (the deck is a Rock mk2... 
Decca London Super Gold Compatibility Question
The first step is to try to tune the adjustment by ear with the existing arm, dialing it in by numbers is only the start. Once you've got it as good as you can get it then is the time to decide whether to try a different arm.  
Decca London Super Gold Compatibility Question
I have a maroon in a Naim Aro unipivot, I had to drop the back of the arm by a mm or two to get the sound to fill out and there is a definite sweet spot for VTF and I have to make a new arm board to get the overhang right. Even with overhang 2mm t...
