Recommendation Tube Integrated
“At this juncture (nearly 2024) what are folks' best recommendagtion for a tube integrated amp.  Constraints would be $10K (preferrably $5K or less), at least 35 watts per channel.  New or used.  Goal would be smooth, creamy sound.  My current sys... 
Table,cartridge,phono...where to put most of my money?
The only advice you received that made any sense to your post was the Technics 1200G.  $3k for a used one is the right money, find a Herron MC phono stage (early model)1500ish and that leaves you $1500 for a cartridge and with that find a Audio Te... 
Does it bother you when you see inflated MSRP’s for used gear on AG?
Who gives a Sh**, to each their own…too many Web police officers a detectives on the forums calling people out.  Just don’t buy the item if it’s listed wrong or priced wrong, a good buy is the perception of the one paying for it with his/her money...

Antipodes from the Antipodes

Technics 1200 MK3D
I have owned all the Technics over the years, Audiophile table? I am asking as its not what most folks on here would consider audiophile. It’s very good to a certain price point as it maintains speed, better suited for MM or medium compliance MC c... 
Bought a system without auditioning, thoughts?
Good gear you picked, I am Ex-Klipsch Forte IV owner and you will be just fine with the Integrated amp.  They work with a lot of different gear for SET amps to solid state amps.  I found they liked the extra power as it will tighten up the bass vs... 
Not selling Cardas cables online again, just wanted to share.....
Unfortunately this is the world we live in, for the last post file the claim and get you money back.  I only deal with higher feedback sellers and buyers now and Friends and family only when I sell.  I am debating on getting out of the buying and ...

Sonare Audio, I have an Ultra Rendu in my second system and I’m my main is a Evo432 Aeon Mkiii.  You can find a nice Ultra Rendu, buy Roon and be sonically set and have money left over.    
Soundstage Heresy IV and Forte IV
My Forte IV’s are incredible, soundstage is wide and big.  On my 2a3 amps the detail and texture is exceptional.  I have had 2 reviewers from “The Audio Beat” over and they were very impressed by the lively sound I get from my 4w tube amps.  I can... 
Have There Ever Been Fake Koetsu?

Have There Ever Been Fake Koetsu?
I have owned many Koetsu’s over the years and either bought new or used from reputable sellers.  The rebuilds from Koetsu and Anna Mighty sound are the only way to go, I have had several Cartridges from Anna Mighty Sound and they are absolutely to...
