Weakest Link? Your honest opinions.
Get the book or DVD " Get Better Sound" by Jim Smith. Read/listen the whole book/DVD.You can be surprise by the result if you follows the tips that Jim Smith provide.The base is always the room and you go from there.

Rainmakers vs Hawk
The Hawk are the best value in the Totem line up. I heard the Rainmaker and I did own in the past the Model 1, Hawk and Mani-2 Signature.The Rainmaker are ok but the Hawk are at another level. 
How important is the tonearm?
I started this tread and I finally bought a new Tri-Planar VII. I considered some more exotic arms like Telea or Reed but decided to go with Tri-Planar, a well respected product made in the USA. Maybe with more experience in analogue,I will give a...
