    Kuoppis - as you know, I just added a mono cart in the last couple of weeks. I cant really recommend one over the other, but I can recommend giving mono a try. Not all mono recordings are better,...

    Re: Hello from Iowa

    I have several clients in Iowa and am headed that way for the first business trip in over a year. This is a good place to learn (and figure out ways to spend money).

    Re: Top Phono Stages - what comes to mind?

    I have the lampizator MC2/ Silver edition. It is essentially the mc1, with the ability to support many cartridges. I absolutely love it. You have many good options in that list.

  8. Re: John Darko - Why dont I use a better sounding turntable?

    Apologies - one more slightly off topic post, but he also has great music suggestions in his reviews. He's a big electronic music fan and, even though that's not my game, I've discovered several...
  9. Re: John Darko - Why dont I use a better sounding turntable?

    Re: The new Accuphase Listening Room

    Where is the carpet in that room? All the great electronics and speakers and chairs will benefit from getting rid of that big shiny reflective surface (it seems to me).
