    Count Taffy the Terrible of Redgrave

    Gerard, as we discussed I know very well who Princess Purdey is named after. If Count Taffy is frankly unimpressed by Princess Purdey, then quite frankly, I'm unimpressed by Count Taffy Lol.

    Who’s up for a $2800 fuse?

    One picosecond that $2800 is in your bank account, the next it's in the pocket of these fellows. That's kinda quantum. Certainly right at the point of transfer of funds.

    Who’s up for a $2800 fuse?

    Quite like their sub-headings Not press to "understand more" But to "understand deeper" I guess you don't "pay more", you "pay deeper" Lol.

    LFD Cables (phono and I.C.) from the UK, cables as components

    Hi Gardener, Peter is my go-to guy as well (alas, not LFD, but my amps, cart and bespoke LPS to latter).

    The argument for/against room treatment

    My interesting results on changed perspective of sound from tt with new motor, to a slightly drier, more detailed but also altered tonal density on some challenging recordings, is inspiring me to play around with room treatments and spkrs positioning. In reality it's mainly revealing the...

    Sure Tom, that's a comparison I'd love to hear. Roll on the vaccinations.

    Trans Fi Salvation rim drive tt and Terminator air-bearing linear tracking arm

    Even cheaper would be to have a series of €100 carbon fibre arm wands w carts already optimised. 30 seconds swap in and out.

    Trans Fi Salvation rim drive tt and Terminator air-bearing linear tracking arm

    Well, reading Mike's recent reports on four tts, five arms/carts, two phonos (if I have those numbers right, it's so hard to keep up w him Lol), yes, I can see the appeal of a more romantic/bloomy cart for my more "austere" LPs. For me, having heard the DaVa at Bill's, I'd take that as the cart...

    Do you have a "Dream Sound" in mind?

    Mike's descriptions suggest there isn't any one dream sound. He's having a different dream depending on the last thing he drank that night Lol.

    Trans Fi Salvation rim drive tt and Terminator air-bearing linear tracking arm

    This is one crazy hobby. I just recalled I removed all the IsoDamp strips from my tt motor pod upon install of Farad LPS to power it. And because I went on a bit of a classical LP marathon with only upsides sonically, I clean forgot to try refixing some IsoDamp inside again. So, here I am...

    Rockport Lyra

    J, she's hearing the word Lyra, I'm sure she thinks it's jewellery. Like you know, HUGE diamonds. I mean, the price is a clue Lol.

    Trans Fi Salvation rim drive tt and Terminator air-bearing linear tracking arm

    Oh, I wouldn't say I've figured it out. Just a working hypothesis maybe. All I know is that whenever I've visited fellows w highly tuned and performing systems, where accuracy and resolution are major facets, often many of my albums sound hugely challenged. I'm coming to varying conclusions...

    Trans Fi Salvation rim drive tt and Terminator air-bearing linear tracking arm

    Transparency on most of my classical and jazz LPs is dramatically improved. Timbral accuracy ditto. Imaging is way more solid and palpable. Instrumental texture and air is off the scale on lots of classical and jazz albums. Literally LP after LP that previously was a bit grey, monochromatic and...

    Trans Fi Salvation rim drive tt and Terminator air-bearing linear tracking arm

    Any contributions to this please. I'm without doubt going thru the most dramatic evolution in my LP playback. Mainly hugely positive. My previous steps of Stacore isolation, attention to detail on tt/arm/cart setup, and install of improved version of my LT arm, all in the last 4 years, have been...

    Miyajima Labs 1.0 mil Infinity Mono

    Mike, one minor reason I settled on my Soundsmith Straingauge cart was a couple of reviews that stated it was one of the best stereo carts for playing mono LPs. And if my limited experience is right, I think those comments may be accurate. No, I'm talking about playing late 60s stereo LPs where...

    Miyajima Labs 1.0 mil Infinity Mono

    Mike, I only have a handful of mono LPs, and I love them, there's a kind of ball of energy feel to them, strangely more energetic than the stereo version, but more relaxed. The vast majority of my late 60s LPs are stereo, and sometimes there's a real "fakeness" in how extreme the stereo panning...

    I don't get this. More people are buying more Teslas in the Age Of Covid?

    Do you have a "Dream Sound" in mind?

    Not so much my dream sound, but a sound I've aspired to, has been achieved in a lot of ways in the last couple of months. I'm getting dramatically more fidelity on classical and jazz albums that were a bit hazy before. However this is at some expense to the overall enjoyability of my more "lo...

    Neil Peart Dead at 67

    This is one of the most heartfelt articles about anybody that I've ever read. It's striking how the family, band and immediate circle, in this age of maximum confessionals and disclosure, kept a near-total lid on Neil's condition and progress. They're to be totally commended while so much of...

    Darren, thanks so much for posting this at my request. Such a poignant piece, seems so much in keeping w the man. Reminds me why I became such a fan in the first place.

    Hello from Dortmund, Germany

    You're 19? At your age, I was buggering about with a Dual 505 tt and some Harmon Kardons/Cerwin Vegas. In other words, a whole lot less impressive than yr setup Lol.
