You aren't in favor of noise dissipation?

It's fully specified, too. They show several views of the box it comes in.

How a Phoenix record store owner set the audiophile world on fire: MoFi claimed its expensive reissues were purely analog reproductions. It had been deceiving its customer base for years. (Washington Post)

I didn't spend US $400 on a platter weight. Because verfiably perfect digital files derived from CDs ripped with my $20 Samsung DVD drive sound just fine. What am I missing here? Sorry, I was only a teenager when CDs were invented and first marketed so may have been so young & naive at the time that I somehow preferred pristine reproduction over media which was degraded each time it was played, which was typically horribly badly made and risked permanent damage every time I used it. I miss those gatefold covers and sleeves though.

I'm 68. I don't miss vinyl, or tubes. Some people obviously love them, and not just old guys, either. It's a hobby, so I don't worry about it a lot. I'll say an excellent tube amp can sound just fine, if you don't mind the blast furnace heat and slowly degrading tube characteristics.

The $399 model comes with a small wooden box to store the platter weight in. They sell what looks like the same device minus the box for only $199, so the wooden box could serve as a place to store their brain when not being used.
OK, but could that wooden box be strategically placed on or near a phono stage to give it a more organic sound? I think we should be told.

Wish Amir tested turntables. This could make a great Onion style test--not that the M-Scaler didn't provide enough comedy.

The thread sniping would be classic. I'm sure he would be told endlessly how wrongly he tested it.

I still consider CD to better than Vinyl (In terms of Fidelity). Also In terms of experience, its fun but that's it.

I'm reading that page, I hear buzz words like "Groove Noise", "Eliminates Resonance", "Elevates Resolution", "Enhances Stability", and "Greater Dynamics". I wonder what format solved all these issues? :rolleyes:. At the end of the day, I'm glad I'm a person that's willing to spend $200 on CDs then on a MoFi Buttplug.

"Groove Noise", "Eliminates Resonance", "Elevates Resolution", "Enhances Stability", and "Greater Dynamics" are qualities I associate with evenings eating pickled onions and drinking cider i.e. just normal everyday stuff :oops:

I sold my SACD / CD player and only own my Rega turntable and an IFi streamer. I only buy CDs of recent. They really really fun to collect these days. Vinyl is just jumped the shark. No used vinyl and what’s available is overpriced. No fun in the hunt for used vinyl — so it’s now CDs.
