    Let's talk CD Players!

    I had no intention of buying a high end CD player. Why bother? Once HiRes downloads and streaming came of age it seems pointless. But after looking into downloading and streaming I determined I wasn't interested in anything that wasn't physical media. I have a fair set of vinyl, and also...

    Turntable Cartridge Output Voltage with Vintage Receivers

    So in looking at various phono pre-amps I'm trying to understand how you work them. Some have solid state, others have tubes. I see some with the dip switches. How do you configure it to work with your cart? What options/settings does a phono pre have to have? I will most likely keep the...

    What are the best speakers that try to emulate live music?

    I just acquired a used set of Morrison Audio speakers, Model 1.5 from 1993. A friend was over and had them in storage, felt I could put them to use as one of my main stereos is in a rather smallish room. The speakers I currently use are 1978 Genesis Physics Model 3's. Interesting looking...

    "I Swapped Spotify for Vinyl and It Changed My Life"

    I did too. Our family had the all in one stereo wood cabinet, pretty much everything sounded mediocre (even had 8 Track). Once I got my car and put in an expensive Alpine CD system I thought I'd never looked back. From my experience there are excellent LPs and also CDs. It first depends on...

    Turntable Cartridge Output Voltage with Vintage Receivers

    I like the fact you can somewhat remove clicks/pops using the Magic feature. Reviews on this seem pretty good. But I also like the PJL reviews.

    "I Swapped Spotify for Vinyl and It Changed My Life"

    If I have guests over, or having dinner, or doing stuff around the house, I either stream digital radio or have my vintage amp and Tuner playing whichever stations I prefer. In these events I don't have time to do critical listening, but I want good sounding music in the house. I also like to...

    Turntable Cartridge Output Voltage with Vintage Receivers

    Thanks to all for their info. This Mani unit looks doable. It would only serve the single TT with the Soundsmith. What setting would you recommend for this cart using the Mani? And are there other phono preamps I can look at within say a $500 or so price range that may be better than the...

    Turntable Cartridge Output Voltage with Vintage Receivers

    I have some questions around cart output voltage, in this case as it pertains to vintage (1970's) Receivers and Phono. My first TT is a Lenco (with mods) with a stock arm that came with a Nagaoka Nagaoka MP-11 cart which had around 5 mV output. Next I installed a 9" NOS tonearm Esoter Track 10...

    Irrational Accuphase Lust

    Does anyone have recommendations on how to best setup the phono (disc 1)? At the back of the E-202 for Low Level Inputs > disc 1, R and L are both at Max, and Impedance is at 47k. I'm running a MM cart. Speaker Damping is set to Normal. On the front, for disc and filter (6 buttons), I've...

    Irrational Accuphase Lust

    The arm and cart came from a friend who's into modding Lenco's. The arm is a NOS Esoter Track Ten (same as the Jelco SA-250ST arm). Cart is an Ortofon Red. Arm was in improvement over the stock arm and dropped right into place. I'm open to understanding how I can tweak the amp so the phono...

    Irrational Accuphase Lust

    Just joined this forum. I recently purchased a pristine Accuphase E-202 amp. It went up for sale, and although I didn't need it, I couldn't pass it up. And it had been recapped a few years back. Up until then I used a Sansui 9090 that was fully recapped and it sounded monstrously amazing...
