What is a good amp to pair with Hovland HP-100
I have a Hovland HP-100 and have tried it with the Radia, Theta Dreadnaught,Audio Research VT 100, and McIntosh 750. Personally, I liked it best with both the Audio Research and the McIntosh.I use a Lyra Titan cartridge, by the way, and the phono ... 
Mapleshade tweaks
I have their Samson V.2 rack and two 2 inch thick platforms, and one of their large 4 inch thick platforms for oversize TTs. First of all, let me say, that pictures in their catalog don't do them justice. The Maple is well aged and full of charact...

Teres Audio Verus Direct Couples Motor, Anyone?
Dougdeacon, thanks for the explanation as to why you couldn't achieve speed stability. I guess that there are slight differences in the diameters of the various Teres platters. I believe we have the same TT, the 320. I must have been lucky with mine.

Teres Audio Verus Direct Couples Motor, Anyone?
Dougdeacon, help me out here. I have read many of your posts and you seem to be very knowledgeable about turntables and their setups.I am not grasping your explanation about the speed control. I followed the instructions Teres sent with the motor.... 
Teres Audio Verus Direct Couples Motor, Anyone?
I am surprised by your findings that the measured speed was inaccurate. In fact, I don't know how that can be since it has internal controls to set the speed using a strobe disc. I was able to get it dead on without any variance at all. However, I...

I switched, also. It is much more accurate than the belt was. 
Vinyl Catalog
File Maker comes with templates that make can easily be used for LPs. I took the one made for movies, did some minor mods and it works great. 
Give the new Kid Rock a shot.
Thanks for the heads up, Harris. I have been curious about this album. I saw Kid Rock sing a duet with Willie Nelson on TV once and have been hoping he would come out with some kind of country sound.Don't worry about the negative people here. I've...
