    Are long runs (> 17ft) of unbalanced interconnects detrimental to sound quality and noise suppression?

    Cartridge for Breuer 8C MkII

    Someone said the same thing to me. I've never heard my Dynavector sound tilted up, but I've always used it in heavier arms. Currently sounds great in my Schroder CB.

    Cartridge for Breuer 8C MkII

    According to this, the cartridge range for the Type 8 is 2-8 grams, but I believe the 8C can accommodate heavier cartridges due to its split counterweight.

    Cartridge for Breuer 8C MkII

    I'm seeking suggestions for a cartridge to complement my newly acquired Breuer. Budget is up to $6K, but I have a little flexibility. I already have a XV1-t on a Schroeder CB, so am seeking a different sound. I listen to a lot of jazz, pop, rock, electronica and singer-songwriter. Thanks!

    SET amp owners thread

    I own an older pair of Jeffrey Jackson's Experience Music Type 50 monos, which I believe are somewhat similar to the Emia Type 50's. I use them to drive my 3-way horns that are approximately 107db efficient. I love them. In fact, someday I may inquire about upgrading to silver transformers.

    Best tables from 1991 as per Voyd

    I owned a Roksan TMS2, which I really enjoyed. When Roksan ceased production of the TMS line, dealers were blowing out the TMS3 at ridiculously low prices. Wish I bought one.

    SET amp owners thread

    I used to own Daedalus Ulysses. While a fine sounding speaker, I think its efficiency is overstated. I used Pure Sound 845 monos which worked well, but a low wattage SET would not be appropriate.

    SET amp owners thread

    When you find such an amp, please let me know. I currently use Type 50 SET monos, which maybe put out 2 watts, on my 105db horns in a 30 x 18 x 9.5 room. Sounds great, but I'm interested in trying an amp with a bit more headroom.

    Brinkmann’s new direct drive Taurus looks worthy of investigation.

    Your Personal Top Three Speaker-Amp Combos That You've Actually Heard.

    Agree, Jeffrey's system is the finest I've ever heard and not by a small margin. Next best was a pair of Wilson Wamms bi-amped with 2 Naim 500s in a large loft in Brooklyn. At the time, I thought it was a strange combination, but boy did it sound incredible. I also really enjoyed my ATC 50s...

    Thomas Schick tonearm

    Thanks for the response Leif. I recently demoed the Long Dog Audio P/S on my 301 and it didn’t seem to have an impact on SQ or speed stability. I’d very much like to try the HAT.
