Best speakers for max. $3000?
I can't believe no one has asked:1.) what types of music do you generally listen to? 2.) How large is your room? and in what orientation will you have your speakers.3.) Do you have 2 to 3 feet to play with in terms of getting speakers away from th... 
CD Spinners Help Needed: Pioneer Elite PD 65 or Enlightened Audio Design T 1000
@xrayz  I was given these two players. A friend of mine passed away and he had tones of gear that was going to be given to the goodwill. So that made me dig out the old boxes of CDs..

One more thing.. If you go to YouTube and type in "Green Mountain Audio" there's a playlist created by Roy with some great tunes and eccentric curiosities..

All,If you are in the Colorado area and would be interested in an "Audiophile" memorial in Colorado Springs in the coming weeks (or months). My thoughts are to choose a home here which could accommodate a  number of audio nuts and eat and drink wh...

@johnto  I have looked at some Parasound gear which seems reasonably priced. Any particular Parasound Integrated you would recommend?@mcreyn   I have always admired the Bryston warranty. I think it says it all. I've heard they are very neutral and...

Vinyl/TT Gurus Chime in! Cartridge Decision: Rework My old Sumiko or get a new cartridge?

Vinyl/TT Gurus Chime in! Cartridge Decision: Rework My old Sumiko or get a new cartridge?
Thanks to one and all. I truly appreciate your feedback. I've decided to retip/rebuild the cart with Soundsmith. Just one thing I've noted as a general trend in responses to this and many other threads here on this forum(and others): There are man... 
Suggestions on turntable to pair with Rogue RP-7 > Finale 300B SET monos > Heresy 3's
Yeah yeah .. clarity, lack of surface noise,... all that... vinyl on a decent rig offers something different. I guess I’m different as I appreciate both for very different reasons. You sound like a man of means. But don’t drop $5k if your not sure...
