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.
Here is my completed Garrard build with a custom plinth designed and built by Peter Noerbaek at PBN audio. Aluminum top and bottom, solid walnut core. It weights 150 lbs and sounds fantastic. GrooveMaster II tonearm and SME 3012R.
I’m waiting for my new platform to be delivered before I move it...
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.
I'm looking to add a turntable to my living room mid-century modern system that is based around a pair of Bose 901's. This system is used for background music and for when people (non-audiophiles) visit. The table needs to be $2000 or less and have a mid-century look to please the wife. Here's...
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.
Having received a rare jazz record from the General, I highly recommend you check out his offerings on eBay! Just don't bid on the Charles Rouse, that one is mine!
I have a rather large ECM collection and I'm going to share a few of the best albums I have.. The lable has an amazing group of artists. A few of my favorites Keith Jarret, Eberhard Webber, Jack De Johnette, chick Corea, Jan Garbarek and Pat Metheny. The side men are equally as good with players...
I figure it's time to re-tube my LAMM LL2.1 Deluxe preamp. Looking for suggestions on the best tubes you all are enjoying. Here is the tube complement:
Looking for vintage tubes, will probably purchase from Upscale Audio. Thank you in advance!
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!
I'll be building a new room from scratch on my property, a dedicated room for my stereo and record collection. It will be 15' by 20' and will have a vaulted ceiling 12' high. I'd like some advice from people on this great forum that have built rooms from scratch. Some of my questions:
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...
