    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...

    Still Points Aperture

    I have one in my room to try out. A friend bought 2 and found that one was sufficient. I had a lot of treatment in the room for a small room. Probably way too much. I removed everything but the corner traps at the ceiling. I have tried the Aperture in a few different spots and found what...

    Calling all digital Gurus

    Ok, so up until now, my digital usage has been fairly limited. I am still primarily an Analog Man. I had a Sonos connect and a CD player. I subscribe to Tidal which I use mostly in my car through my phone. I subcribed to Roon which I like. It is resident in my Mac and I can choose music from...

    Refreshed my Infinity 7 Kappa's

    I have really been enjoying these Infinity's a lot for a few months now. I was a bit concerned about the polydome's though as they had turned white. Stories abound of the polydome mids just going to pieces. I followed an old thread over on AK about restoring them with Meguires vinyl and...

    I kind of like this

    My neighbor gave me this Echo Dot. I finally figured it out and got it connected to my Sonos Connect. I just tell it what I want to hear and it plays it. Cool!

    Has anyone used Last record preservative?

    I picked up a used Japanese pressing of Kenny Burrell and Grover Washington Jr. "Togethering" today. It had the "Last" sticker on the cover and I was curious. Looked it over and it appeared clean so I put it on without cleaning it on the Okki Nokki. This record is the quietest record I have...

    This is strange

    The past few months, I have not been checking craigslist, audiogon, us audio mart, ebay daily for gear. I'm not sure whats wrong. To make things worst, I actually have some excess gear for sale on craigslist. Should I see a doctor?

    Look what I found

    I have taken a liking to my old PL-50 again of late. A bit of nostalgia I suppose. A week or so ago, I was taking my daily stroll through Ebay when this popped up A full accessory kit for a PL-50. It includes transport bolts, an unused headshell, 45 adapter, screw driver, unused oil...

    Pioneer PL-50 motor

    Rich, Have you ever opened up the motor on one of these old pioneers? Mine has a slight buzz and from what I have read, the motor bushings can be cleaned which will quiet them down. I dont want to break it but if its an easy process, I am game. Thanks.

    Classical Records...What do I have?

    I am not a student of classical music. That being said, I have a great admiration and appreciation of classical pieces and those who perform it. In my gathering of wayward records, I acquired a few classical pieces. All of which I know nothing. Please forgive my ignorance but if you would...

    Just curious. Do any of you have insurance policies specifically for your record collection or equipment? My agent thinks I am covered well for the gear but suggested a specialty policy for the record collection and guitars. If you have one, who is the company? Thanks.

    Dang it!

    I finished mounting and setting up the TP-16 on the Thorens last night in preparation to put it up for sale. I really don't need it with the Sota in the system. I mounted a cheap AT cart on it just to be able to demo it. I put a record on to test it and it just had a sweet sound to it. Then...
