    Threaded stud gliders

    I use them on carpet. I have spikes on the speakers so I go the gliders that work with spikes. Makes speaker positioning MUCH easier on top of sonic improvements.

    CD Changers: Love/Hate

    I have a nice Yamaha changer acquired at GW Hi End Audio in the bedroom and a Sony in the garage. Both have the remote and work great. My CD player in my listening room is a very nice Denon DCD-1560 that I picked up at the Salvation Army store for the princely sum of $25 USD. I use it for the...

    Do you believe that our hobby is splitting?

    I found too stressful to listen to because of all the clicks & pops, cartridge mistracking, inner groove distortion and everything else Turntable set up and clean records. Both are critical to vinyl playback. I experience none of the things you mention in my system. It did take some effort to...

    My Soundsmith Aida is silent in the grooves as well.

    Good Power cables that won’t break the piggy bank

    Bought 2 more on eBay last night. Needed one for the DAC I added and I put a DC filter in line with the amp power so I needed one for that. :)

    R.I.P Chick Corea

    I saw him play in a small venue in the 80’s. Incredible musician. RIP

    Good Power cables that won’t break the piggy bank

    I use Harmonic Technology AC-11 power cables on everything. The first HT AC-11 I acquired with my power amp. I was using the aforementioned DH Labs power cables at the time and was quite satisfied. I decided to give the HT a try on my preamp and it literally blew me away. I started looking...

    Pioneer PL-41 just... a... little... slow...

    I have the original cart with my PL-50. I had several different carts on it when I was using it regularly. Not long ago, I put the original cart back on just for grins and giggles. It has a modern replacement stylus, not sure which one, with a conical tip, Truthfully, I enjoyed listening to...

    Stylus. Probably. Not that what you did is harmless but it shouldn't break that arm.

    Pioneer PL-41 just... a... little... slow...

    The Thorens Geniune Replacement belt is the only one for vintage tables that live up to the billing.

    Pioneer PL-41 just... a... little... slow...

    I have a PL-50. Looks identical but has auto return. Not sure about the motor and such. First check to see where the belt is riding on the capstan, It should be in the middle, if it is high or low, it will affect your speed. The capstan height can be adjusted it is kid of a pain though. If...

    Looks like early Renkus Heinz. Pretty common in the sound reinforcement world. Renkus-Heinz

    Herbie’s Audio Lab Cyber Monday Sale

    I did, I have them on my Infinity Kappa 7's. I have spikes on the speakers so I bought that version. They help tremendously in speaker placement and as I recall, they cleaned up the sound a bit. I have had them in service for quite some time now so I don't recall how it sounded before...
