My goodness, I was all over the place today.Started the day with 2 live performances of the Berliner Philharmoniker (Digital Concert Hall subscription) of Shoenberg Violin Concrto and Orchestra, op. 36 by violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, and Tch...

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’m willing to listen and learn.In my business as a designer, I often suggest ideas to clients and they look at me like I have 3 heads, as they are out of the norm of what everyone else does, or what they have seen others h...

@millercarbon Thanks for the additional insight.I had a pretty good feeling the styrofoam, or large tiles, etc. would not work. What I wanted to see was if the material I tried had any effect at all. It did. I wanted to make sure it wasn’t just a ...

The Kenwood is not a light weight turntable. Probably heavier than many in its pice class when manufactured. Again, that was it’s big selling points, the composition make-up and weight of the table.After a bit more searching for replacement feet, ...

@larryrs Thanks so much, I’ll take a look at it.

OK all, interesting finding.@viridian Yes, I didn’t really want to pull the plug with a record playing, but I did. Turned up up volume, and no ’howling’ at all. @millercarbon I didn’t want to, but finally moved some furniture out of the way, and s...

@jnorris2005 Interesting to consider. One note though, when I say wood shelves, these shelves are supported fully by a metal flange and frame and also a composite (layered wood) shelf that is as thick as the metal frame supporting it, or 1 1/2”. I...

@jnorris2005 Great. ;-) I have the same concerns regarding the high pass filter. I’ve heard some say that a filter reduced their rumble issue, but who knows how picky they were about sound degradation. But, if it is indeed feedback, then that isn’...

Thanks Tubegb1) I ordered some synthetic lubrication for clocks, small motors, etc. I figured it should work.2) The belt was replaced not too long before I took it out of commission, but yes, it still sat for a long time, and they are availiable a...

Thank you robertjerman. I’ll make sure any photo stage I’m looking at addresses that issue.As I do not want to spend a ton of $$ at this time, I’m looking at the Schiit, Vincent PHO 8 (used), Cambridge CP2, and Parasound Zphono (used).Now that I t...

Nope, not the ones I was playing.

Interesting. Thanks again millercarbon.any recommendation on after market lube?After comparing an album I have on vinyl and CD; John Mahall’s Jazz Blues Fusion, although the Grado Red made a significant improvement, I do think a separate phono pre...

Thanks a bunch miller.Very good to know it isn’t a sonic feedback issue. I’ll check the belt drive ‘spindle’ for ‘feel’. This table has a lube hole right at its base. I always had the lube that came with the table handy, but goodness knows were th... 
Vandersteen 2ce Signature and Signature 2?
The 2Ce Signature is distinguished from the original 2 Ce by the inclusion of RV's autograph on the backplate.Wasn't aware of that. Good info. My 2CE Sig 'I's do, in fact' have Richards signature. I guess the moniker now makes sense ;-) Strangely ... 
Vandersteen 2ce Signature and Signature 2?
Just don’t expect the sn to tell you everything. My 2CE Sig ‘1’s are 58328 & 58329. I assume they are Sigs as I purchased them from the second (seemingly very reputable) owner in the original boxes that are clearly labeled ‘Signature’. Unless ...
