    Re: HT vs Home Audio System

    I use to use my Magnepans in a 3.1 system for HT and 2.1 for music. I gave up my HT and just run separate speakers and receiver for TV. My music system is totally separate.

    Re: What happened to tone controls?

    Well, all I can say is that in a secondary system I use a 1970's Technics Integrated amp with tone controls and turning down the treble makes bright recordings listenable for the most part.

    I...

    Re: What happened to tone controls?

    I like tone controls and wish my BAT had defeatable tone controls. I have some music (mostly older CD's and poorly recorded music) that is too hot in the high end and it would be great to be able to...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    Yes, but the upgrade is more than just the silver wire.

    Glad to hear that the 2M Blue sounds better. Give it 25-30 hours and it will sound better.

    Enjoy!

    Re: Why no turntable?

    Randy, if you are considering the Lounge Audio, you may want to contact them and see if it could be upgraded to the Silver or Gold addition in the future if you get further into vinyl. The LCR...

    Re: where to buy tubes?

    If you are looking for vintage tubes consider TC tubes. I have bought and sold tubes with them. I have been to their house and they are honest people. They are a husband and wife team.

    Re: Why no turntable?

    Randy, upgrading to the Blue stylus will make a nice difference. Personally I do not like the Ortofon Red. I think it is way overhyped. It find it bright, grainy, noisy and irritating. It is...

    I have a Luxman DAC and they do not recommend leaving it on all the time.

    Re: Turntable isolation solutions

    For isolation on the cheap, you can use Vibrapods or Sorbothane pucks. I use Sorbothane pucks under my Thorens TD-145 and they seem to work well for vibration.

    Re: System help! Elac? Sonos? Rega? Onkyo?

    Welcome to AS.

    The Rega Phono should be much better than the phono preamp in the Onkyo.

    You do not need a DAC with a CD player as the player has one built in.

    I can't comment on the...

    Wow, it appears to have a lot of issues. However, the platter is not wobbly, the rubber belt is the issue. I am sure they will figure it out. I am surprised that it is still for sale on their...

    When I heard it with the headphones, it was paired with a higher end phono preamp and a Hana MC Cartridge. Just stunning sound. I can't remember the brand of phones though. I like the minimalist...

    Re: new tt from schiit

    I heard this TT at RMAF. It sounded great. I heard it in the Salk room with their cheap Mani phono pre and with Headphones in another room. It appears to be a very good budget TT.

    It also applies to higher end gear. My son bought a used pair of PSB Synchrony One speakers (They sold for $5K new) from one of my friends. The midrange was dead on one of the speakers, apparently...

    Re: AudioQuest USB Coffee Break-in Question

    Give it about 100hrs of burn in before you make a decision. USB cables are very system dependent.

    Re: Fyne 702ís arrive

    Mike, if I can swing it next year, I will buy a pair of the 702's. I loved them at RMAF and they were not even close to being broken in.

    Re: PSB

    Brian, I called PSB yesterday and they do not even carry the schematics for the crossover any more. I wonder if this has anything to do with them being taken over by Lenbrook industries.
