    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...

    Got some interesting new horns...

    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...

    Does Roon make sense for me?

    I went from Roon to Audirvana. Perfectly satisfied. I just could not justify the cost of Roon for a secondary source. I am primarily an analog guy.

    I felt so dirty...

    I actually have quite a few Cassettes so I have a deck hooked into my system. WTH, I have the shelf and a tape input. I rarely listen to anything on it but it doesn't sound half bad.

    Hmmm... is it my stylus or the record?

    I clean the stylus per SS instructions after every use. I have a barely used AT OC9 II, which is nice but I have gotten the SS set up so well I hate to take it off unless I am sending it back. Exchanging the record will most certainly be the first step.

    Hmmm... is it my stylus or the record?

    I am coming up in 3 years with my Soundsmith Aida. It is a wonderful phono cartridge. However, I am experiencing something unusual. My daughter gave me James Taylors “One Man Band” record for my birthday. I opened it up and put it on and there is some very noticeable distortion throughout the...
