    Re: rectifier tube noise - is this normal?

    Re: Preamp for Dag

    Re: Thoughts on Turntables and Vibration

    Many moons ago I had my TT on a shelf that was screwed into the wall studs, it was not a load bearing wall. When I turned up the volume it was horrible. I wound up making a square shelf to put the...
  4. Re: Luxman Receiver with Cambridge SoundWorks Ensemble Speakers

    I had those exact speakers many moons ago. As I recall they said each sub and satellite for each channel was a 6 ohm load, they were to be wired in parallel. I think they were a "difficult" 6 ohm...

    If that is his reference room I have to wonder about that echo. That would drive me nuts.

    Re: Aurender ACS10

    I just spoke with Mike about this same AURENDER just a few days ago. It is for sure on my short list but I'm still trying to figure out what I really need and/or want. Mike answered all of my...

    Re: Snake Oil or Contact Enhancer?

    I have tried a few different contact enhancers in the past. I think it just gums up the terminals and any audible benefit is from unplugging and plugging the cables back in, not from the magic juice....

    I have already warned you that when Ralph speaks you had better listen. If you keep on speaking you "might" start to sound silly.

    Re: The biggest secret has been revealed?!

    Thanks. This preamp murdered my previous preamp so bad it was a tragedy. It was so bad there were large groups of people outside my house holding candles....lol.

    Re: The biggest secret has been revealed?!

    Here is a piece of basswood (pronounced like the fish) under the edge of my preamp. It reduces the bass a bit and tightens it up. This is changing the vibration of the equipment similar to the way...

    Governor DeSantis was against FEMA coming into Florida and helping administer the vaccine. His donors and certain white/rich zipcodes got the vaccine first. Just sayin'.

    Re: Don't Ever Visit Mike Bovaird

    Thanks for the update. I really wanted the Luxman MQ-88 but delivery would have been months away. I like that the Luxman runs in triode mode and delivers 25wpc with KT88's. I know I can't go wrong...

    I just bought a Pass XA25 from Suncoast, partly due to his friendly feedback on this forum. He has already cost me money and I haven't even been to his shop.

    Re: Top Tier Amps

    If you only need 30 watts or less per channel this whole tier thing changes. I guess we need another thread for the "sweet" amps....lol.
