  1. Re: mismatch between the phono stage and preamp?

    John - Given those specs there's no obvious mismatch between the phono stage and preamp. There are so many variables in a phono rig, I'd suggest checking and tweaking the cartridge alignment, VTF,...

    Re: new tt from schiit

    Not really surprising if you think about it... their engineering experience is all in digital and amplification. A turntable and tonearm is in essence an analog measuring device which requires...

    Re: Abbey Road

    Qobuz in the US only currently has it available in CD quality. They have a banner showing it as available in Hi-Res, but when you click on it you get a 404 page. Maybe still working out licensing...

    Re: Full range tower speakers, ~$6k and under?

    And the rest of their stated return policy:

    With “custom” finishes and/or more expensive speakers, this is not practical. If we only offered three or four standard finishes, it would not be a...
  9. Re: Will I lose sound quality using standard XLR cables in place of AES/EBU 110ohm cables

    When using XLR cables for a digital connection the source and load circuitry is designed to work optimally with an ideal load impedance of the 110 ohm AES/EBU standard. While standard XLRs will not...

    Re: Monoblock vs Stereo Amps

    A mono amp only supports amplification of a single channel. Stereo reproduction requires two channels, so a single stereo amp could be used or two mono amps. A stereo amp may internally contain two...

    My technical training (EE) as well as decades of experience in critical listening strongly disputes most of that article. Its conclusions would lead us back to the claims of CD reproduction being...

    Re: Digital cable shoot-out

    Digital cables terminated with either RCA or BNC connectors would be 75 ohm cables, but variances in the impedance of the connector can affect the sound. BNCs are available in 75 as well as 50 ohms,...

    Re: AT-LP6 vs Fluance RT85

    Re: Ohms And Amp Power Output

    The Luxman L-509X is rated at 120wpc into 8 ohms, and 220wpc into 4 ohms (a bit less than if it had a theoretically perfect power supply which would then provide 240wpc.) So driving the 6 ohm...

  22. Re: Would a Luxman C900u be overkill for an MQ-88SE?

    No harm by asking and I don't think you did anything improper. Just thought that anything more specific about discounts should be kept private.
  23. Re: Would a Luxman C900u be overkill for an MQ-88SE?

    I'd respectfully suggest that any responses about potential discount pricing be kept private via PM rather than in public posts.
