  1. Re: VPI Scoutmaster 2 ---> VPI ? Turntable Upgrade Options/Suggestions

    Scoutmaster with a Classic platter is a legitamate alternative to the Classic. Put a 3D tone arm with a second pivot and you'll be real happy. A serious upgrade is to replace the stock feet with...
  2. Re: VPI's New Dual Pivot vs Soundsmith's Counter Intuitive

    The 2nd pivot is a very definite sonic upgrade - and not by just a little. The c/i makes it easier to dial in but does not absolutely lock in azimuth - the 2nd pivot does. The c/i does not make...

    Re: Ok time to ask about headphones

    I love my Sen 650's...use it with a dedicated balanced amp/Cardas balanced cable....I've never heard better sound.

  6. Re: Feedback on Ayre and Aesthetix with Vandersteen 5As

    If the Ayre sounds thin/edgy, the cables were wrong for that system. I have Ayre/Vandersteens that are wonderful. Tubes are expensive, and a pia
  7. Re: Cartridge for my VPI Classic 3...suggestions?

    I have an Ortofon Winfield....not much talk about it on the internet, but it is a great cartridge...especially for the price. Gives you all the "goodies" you would want but for 1/2 the price.
  8. Re: New cartridge from Audio-Technica : AT-ART1000 - First with Direct Power System

    Similar to the Decca from years ago which was a great cartrige, but one that didn't track well.
  9. Re: Cartridge for my VPI Classic 3...suggestions?

    I had a Benz LPS that was getting a bit long in the tooth. I asked Harry what his suggestions were....I was going to get one of the top Lyras. He told me that only if I'd compare them directly...

    Remember too that the state of the art in consumer manufacture is Apple which makes all their stuff in China. Companies are mainly interested in the bottom line....that's what makes the stock soar,...

    How unthinking he was to his family.....not having (at least) a will....should have had an irrevocable trust.... Now the government will get over 50% of his wealth..in addition, the value to all of...
  12. Re: Cartridge for my VPI Classic 3...suggestions?

    I have a Winfield in my 3D arm.....almost (but not quite) a top Lyra....but an easier entrance fee. Unless you a/b the 2 cartridges, you'll never miss the differences.

    ..just on an "Audiophile" note.....Cardas was the very worst cable that I inserted in my system with all my Ayre stuff...I know Ayre recommends Cardas...but not good for me.

    Kuoppis - Because he found a way to make lots of money doesn't make him a genius. I have no contempt for him. I wish i had been fortunate enough to make that kind of money. He taught himself piano...

    You have forgotten the Ortofon Winfield.....only a small tick less than the very top Lyra, but much less cost.
