    Sme 3012 R

    I'm questing for a 3012R but am confused about what condition the arm should be in. Is the OEM wiring preferred or does it need replaced? If so who offers re-wiring that retains the OEM sound? Any parts that need replaced due to age of the arm? Are rebuilt or re-wired arms from companies...

    Avengers 4: Endgame - Trailer

    Took the family last night. Lot's of screaming and cheers. Also lot's of crying and hand holding. For me a great film and a touching end to an epic cinematic run.

    Durand Tosca tonearm at Axpona

    Mike, Thx for posting it looks awesome. Is the azimuth adjustment on the back of the headshell? I see a few marks on top. Hard to tell from the photo is the arm nude carbon or painted carbon? It has a similar look to the SAT arms is the design similar?

    KeithR's "Dream Speaker" Search

    I enjoyed my time with them very much. Very dynamic and truly full range. My room being essentially square suffers from poor acoustics and find active adjustable bass the best solution. ARC REF 250 and darTZeel 108 were great fits for the Cresendo's.

    Anyone using Airtight ATM 211 to recommend?

    Hi, My mistake I got the part#'s wrong. I was referring to Podeschi's amps. We just did a sizable transaction and I can highly recommend him.

    Anyone using Airtight ATM 211 to recommend?

    Hi, The 211’s were wonderful and dead quite with most types of music. I have 107db Avantgardes and no issues with background hiss. The Preamp I used was a darTZeel . I know of a pristine pair of 120V ATM 3211 for 15,000 if interested.

    Anyone using Airtight ATM 211 to recommend?

    Hi, I really loved my ATM-211’s with my Tannoy GRF90’s but felt the Tannoy’s were at their best with more power. The AT ATM-2 to me was a better overall fit. For course your results may very.

    Pass xa25

    I’ve had one paired with Avantgarde Uno XD’s for 6 weeks now. It does not present the same SET midrange but makes up for it with soundstage, speed etc. very non fatiguing at all volume levels. It’s a keeper. Worth noting my speakers are 107bd into 18ohm load so not much juice required.

    Dartzeel NHB-18NS or ARC Ref 5 se?

    Battery works and is easily switchable for critical listening sessions. Couldn't tell the difference for a long time but it has come into its own and adds another layer of air and finesse . The phono stage is also adjustable and while I haven't heard many stages this one is really good as good...

    Dartzeel NHB-18NS or ARC Ref 5 se?

    I've owned both the ARC REF 5,5SE and the older Dart and now the newest version of the NHB-18NS. My amp currently is the Dart 108. I much prefer the Dart and there is great synergy between the Dart pre and amp. Sound wise for me they are very far apart. I find the Dart much less fatiguing and...

    Compare ARC Ref 5SE with Dartzeel NHB-18NS

    If you end up going with V1 version of the Dart Pre highly recommend getting a later version . Better volume, Battery and Phono Stage.

    Compare ARC Ref 5SE with Dartzeel NHB-18NS

    Why cant you discuss the brand? For me as you say opinions , likes vary. ARC to me is on the SS side of tubes and Dart is on the tube side of SS. That said I also have some SET amps and love them with certain music mostly what you listed above.
