    How the inside of a 20 yr. old Magnepan looks like

    Around 2015, I heard some flapping in the bass of the R speaker and some mid range distortion on the L speaker. A friend immediately told me the wires have been detached from the diaphragm of the planars and I sought out an expert repairman who was very familiar with Magnepan speakers. I had to...

    Amplifier Triode/Ultra Linear Switch Pop sound

    Hello all, I'm writing on behalf of my friend, a newbie of sorts, who bought a Rogers 65V-1 integrated tube amplifier a couple of days ago. While he loved the sound on first listen, he found out that switching the toggle from triode to UL gives off a loud pop that is startling. Switching back...

    Jadis PA 100 amp - Jadis becomes Jadis again

    Back in the early 90s, I had a pair of Jadis JA200 and a Jadis JPL preamp. Due to the temperamental nature of the 200s, popping caps in the power supply every so often, I finally gave up and sold them and took the ARC way, retaining my JPL preamp till around 2014 when I sold it as well.

    Linn Sondek LP12 Akurate Set Up

    I was telling my best buddy JackD201 about my Linn Sondek and how it took 6 hours to assemble and set up, and by nighttime, there were still some 'fine tuning' to do, but the set up boys were tired and they had to come back the next day to make it finally 'operational'. Whew. But it was fun...

    The Meg

    I haven't been a fan of Jason Statham but my son insisted that we watch this (he got a good review from his uncle) and since I kinda like shark movies, I obliged. Surprise was I liked it very much. I thought the movie would have ended after an hour but the action kept going on with new...

    I thought of starting a new thread, and it's all about Koetsu products, its name, almost synonymous with mystique and magic; for many years prior to owning one, it was like an elusive dream. Then a Black fell into my lap and me, I fell for it, and even took the country dealership of it in the...

    Maggie Owners - Do you set the ribbon tweeters inside or outside?

    The owner's manual says to set it outside or near the side walls but I like it better firing from the inside near the center fill. For 15 years I have set it inside and last week I tried to listen to them with tweeters outside and it took only a day and a few records to tell me I have to bring...

    Vinyl Defect

    I have seen a few of these kinds of markings on some precious records (this one on a James Newton Howard Sheffield D2D) and I'm wondering how a cartridge can 'scribble' or scratch a form like that, that of irregular lines that does not follow the path of a pivot or linear tonearm. I'm referring...
