    In praise of idlers

    AND, unlike other gear, we are invited to mess with it!!! We get to try whatever arm, motor, cartridge, dampening, phono cables, etc. We only have our ears to trust. I had a lot of help, but I built my latest. All of us can hear the difference between aluminum and stainless steel arm pods...

    In praise of idlers

    I REALLY hope this subject keeps it's momentum. I changed my turntable from an after market belt drive system to a Teres Verus rim drive ( albeit on a 50 lb. platter), and the difference was phenomenal! It gave my Lyra Atlas the drive and heft to the music I'm not sure I could have achieved any...

    Furutech FI-48 NCF Silver Connectors

    I bough one NCF 48 silver from a member who was not very fond of it. I don't have a cord to mess with that is worth trying it on now. I do have some raw Furtech S022 power cord.

    KeithR's "Dream Speaker" Search

    I'm in love with what plasma tweeters bring to the musical event. Years ago I tried to talk a friend out of buying the Acapella Ion tweeters, to no avail. Once I heard them, I was floored! Now, after selling off several body parts, I own a pair! I even had a friend change out the iec, to a...

    Intro/ribbon drivers

    I'm building a pair of line source ribbon speakers as a project. One nice feature with the Dynapleat ribbons is they roll off around 50 hz. so I can tune without any crossover if it sounds better. The dual JBL 18 inch woofers( the giant black boxes) will do the grunt work.

    What is your opinion of Line Source speakers?

    More in the" just goofing off" category, I just built a line source in the garage system. Eight full range Dyna ribbons per channel.
