    Time Capsule SP-10

    I picked this one up just shy of six years ago. The first year we were in NYC. It was OB, but NOS. None of the bags had been opened, cords unwound, etc. And that's how it stayed its entire time with me. Someone caught me wanting to downsize, so I decided to let it go. I have to say it is...

    You pay shipping...

    ... and maybe packing materials if I don't have them. We consolidated down to one residence in July, and I've been making my way through the excess. This is good stuff I just want gone and am offering here for shipping cost before trashing it. My desire is that this stuff doesn't get picked...

    Listening Chairs

    I've had one of these as the temporary chair in my temporary listening room for about a year now. @S0und Dragon has seen it. Fortunately he thought my speakers were the scarier thing in the room. I've debated the Eames Lounge, Aluminum Group Lounge, Barcelona, LC2, etc. I keep coming back to...

    Tonearm bearing repair

    I was asked about play in the bearing of an EPA-B500. As we can't attach pictures to messages, and for the benefit of the community, I thought I'd post my response as a thread. While there are some bearings designed to have a bit of play the EPA-B500 and EPA-100/100MK2 aren't among them. What...

    Jico Zirconia

    I'm sure most know, Jico is playing with new things: ZIRCONIA | JICO stylus | Online Shopping for Japanese Phonograph Needles. As exotic cantilevers are one of my things, I decided to give one a go on a V15VMR. It's tipped-up on top. I haven't played with loading yet to see how it tames, but...

    SP-10MK3 Maiden Voyage

    Took her out of the box today and fired her up. I isolated the PS first and brought it up on the variac to ensure it was stable, and then hooked the rest of the boards back up. It's running extremely well, though the main filters caps are a bit warm. We'll see how they do once it gets a few...

    Turns out the folklore is largely true.

    Here are two needle drops I'd appreciate some input on. I'm not looking for anything in particular - just curious what others think. I'll withhold my comments until the reveal. Thanks! Sample 1 Sample 2

    Confessions of a Vinyl Heretic

    I've been meaning to try this for some time since I read the thread on diyAudio. Since then Scott Wurcer wrote an article about it for the last Linear Audio, and I had a need to do needledrops without RIAA EQ from test records that were cut with constant velocity. So, here we are. The first...

    New Room

    Friday next week we close on our house in CT. This one presents some opportunity as I've the unfinished part of a partially finished basement to turn in to my fiefdom. The house was remodeled in 2010 with a new garage with sleeping space above, and the old 2+ car garage + workspace in the...

    Greetings from NYC

    Everyone's favorite pig suggested I swing by here and check out the fun. I've been heavily involved in the hobby for only five years. When I began I was a tube and vinyl fanatic, though I've since broadened my world considerably. This was partly due to my daily involvement in digital audio in...
