Woofer sucking in and out
Hi Ct0517,Thank you for your reply.I did see that but I still feel the arm/cartride relationship needs to be examined again. Moving the TT probably only reduced the problem exhibited by that relationship. The low freuency pumping of the woofers is...

musical drummers...who are they ???
Hi All,I would cast a vote for Hal Blaine - the great session drummer. His playing always seemed to be exactly what a particular song required. Best,Barry 
Infinity Kappa 9's
Hi MT,The Infinity Kappa 9 speakers will require at least one stereo amp that has a huge amount of current as well as high wattage while also being fully stable down to 2 ohms. The Kappa 9s present a severe phase angle to an amp and many amps that... 
Isolating the listening chair?
Typo - It should say: "it would not seem that isolating the listener from the floor by use of vibration control devices would be appropriate."Barry 
Isolating the listening chair?
Hi All,Just to bring this thread back to some serious discussion - it would not seem that isolating the listener from the floor by use of vibration control devices would not be appropriate. If the objective of an audio system is to reproduce the e...
