    (ERC Re-issue) Bach & Mozart Violin Concertos - Played by Gioconda De Vito

    You don't want to miss this re-issue. The real deal (ED1) in stereo runs $3,000-$4,000 USD. Rare as hens teeth. Only 300 will be issued. Worth every penny of the $440 asking price. This will kill the testament re-issue. I have the ED1 Mono. Sounds brilliant. The stereo should be even better. All...

    Drone Photography

    I recently picked up a DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 camera drone. Just in time for fall colors. This is my new 300 acre homestead off in the distance where my stereo will eventually reside. I am looking forward to exploring the potential of Aerial photography.

    Basement listening room. Best type of ceiling ?

    Looking for recommendations. I’m buying a new home. The basement listening room is 19’x28’x9.5’ The ceiling has flimsy drop tile. What are some beneficial options for redoing the ceiling. I am assuming drop tile type ceilings are bad for sound ?

    Best RTR NAB Hubs Ever !!!

    Who likes hearing the Revox style NAB hubs make their whiney rubber rubbing sound during quiet moments while the tape is spinning ? I don’t. These hubs attach to the reel which is then put on the reel deck spindle. Dead silent. Huge upgrade for the listening experience. Contact Greg Beron...

    RCA Shaded Dog (US) vs. RCA (UK) Vinyl

    For those that have the same classical title in both US RCA shaded dog and UK RCA , what's the difference ? Are their respective pressings derived from the same master tapes ? Is one more coveted (sound quality) over the other or is it title dependent ?

    Western Electric Rectifiers - The Holy Grail

    I have tried many rectifier tube variants in my phono stage...the Allnic H5000 DHT. It is amazing that changing this pair of tubes really influences the performance of the component. I have tried literally all of them from 5U4G (3 amp filament current) to the 5R4Gy's (2 amp filament current) GZ...

    STP's Scott Weiland Dead !

    Sad news. Always liked STP. Saw them once back in '08. Heroin is a cruel and unrelenting drug. It seems he could never escape its grasp. RIP http://pagesix.com/2015/12/04/ex-stone-temple-pilots-singer-scott-weiland-found-dead/?_ga=1.32869304.74410303.1446502425

    Grateful Dead 24/192 download Spring 1990

    These concerts were recorded live on 24 track RTR and copied via 24/192 A/D. The band is in their prime and this is one of my favorite tours since I started attending their shows in 1985. The sound is sublime and is as good as it gets for live Dead. Select HD Flac...

    UHA Phase 11S - OPS upgrades

    I sent my deck back to Greg Beron for some upgrades: 1) Repro preamp upgraded to Phase 12: 2) Vari-EQ: allows boost or cut +- 4 dB for Hi-EQ. The knobs are calibrated so at the 12:00 position (5 on knob), the EQ is standard flat. This will come in handy for hot or rolled tapes. 3) Scrape...

    Mott The Hoople - All the Young Dudes reissue

    1972 Classic Brit Rock. The 1st issue US sounds like crap. This record ??? No sibilance, not nearly as compressed, distortion at both extremes is gone, great bass and treble with no sibilance. It sounds like how you wish it did back in the day. Must have for fans. I bought both the 180 colored...
