    Ojas Audio - High Efficiency Speakers Made in NYC

    Cool video about Devon Turnbull's Ojas Audio speakers. High efficiency speakers and low wattage tube amps. Nothing new here, but it's interesting to see a former DJ who visited Japan being inspired by Japanese DIY audio.

    401 Project

    I’ve been in the process of building out a Garrard 401 for the last 7 months. I procured a minty 401 from a fellow member, and upgraded the bearing and idler wheel. The last piece of the puzzle is the plinth. I’ve elected to go with a wood plinth sandwiched between two pieces of aluminum. Peter...

    VDH XGW Stradivarius

    I was lucky enough to pick up a VDH XGW Stradivarius (thank you MikeL) and added it to the system last week. It is absolutely fantastic, and gives me the clearest window into the music I've ever had in my system. The detail and nuance of the instruments has really taken my system to the next level.

    Get ready to sell your Wilson, Sonus Faber And YG's......NOS Bose 901 Series VI in the house!

    My wife and I collect 50's midcentery furniture. She saw a pair of 901's in an old add with a Herman Miller Eames chair and said "I want those for the TV room!" Excellent midrange, but that's all you get!

    Lamm'd if you do, Lamm'd if you don't

    So while Mike was making the uber Lamm upgrade, I was making a more modest move in the Lamm stable.....the Lamm ML1.1. I have to say I'm extremely pleased with the pairing of the tube mono's with my JBL speakers. My wife who is tolerant but extremely skeptical of my hobby, stayed in the room and...
