Cartridge Advice Please
@audphile1 - you do bring up a good point that I have recognized and worked with in the past.  I don't recall how the actual dimensions compared when I had the Aphelion 2 but I did buy the spacer set and adjusted the arm from the base.  I did not ... 
Cartridge Advice Please
@tomic601 - I have seen immediate improvements from better isolation for my turntable and subwoofers but have not tried anything under the components.  You may be on to something here as I know I am currently running a fabulous cartridge so maybe ... 
Cartridge Advice Please
@mijostyn - Just checked hifishark and an Eminent EX sold 3 weeks ago in 2 days for $2500!  Just a little late on my inquiry, but will definitely be watching for the next one.    
Cartridge Advice Please
@jjss49  - Thanks, will do some research on dynavector @tablejockey - Good idea to keep AT in mind.  I see lots of positive things and big fans of their high end cartridges.  That ART-20 does seem like a good candidate to keep an eye out for a de... 
Ultimate test of bass - Lana del Rey's A&W
@durangoat thanks for that referral....something about hearing an actual instrument that makes the results in your room so much more satisfying;  no offense to the OP as I sometimes enjoy electronic music but it is mostly overdone for my ears and ... 
What should my heirs do to dispose of my vinyl and CDs?
@hifiman5  One idea is to search your area for donation options.  Check out what a collection sparked here in Memphis.  They continue to accept donations. They keep new additions that are in good condition and have sales of the rest to help fund ...

Rega Naia later this year
It would be fun to compare.  I appreciated an improvement going from the RP10 to the P10. They mention the new tonearm, ceramic hub, new feet along with new plinth material.  I may have missed some but I would expect those to offer an appreciable...

Fee for home audition
In the past when I had a local dealer anything that was demo or used, I was able to do like others have mentioned to take home over the weekend. I would never of expected to take a new product home out of the box because then they can’t get retail... 
Considering moving to separates with a tube preamp-appreciate recommendations
I have had great success with various Audio Research separates and feel you owe it to yourself to give them a shot.  The LS27 is a superb line stage that goes for about $3200 and can be resold quite easily if you decided to go another route.  The ... 
What can beat Wilson XVX for less money?
This level equipment is beyond my league but I had a couple interesting demos that may be helpful for you.  I live in Memphis and met the owner of EgglestonWorks.  Jim had his Ivy Signature SEs in his office and gave me a demo. I don't recall the ... 
DAW vs Alexia 1 vs Sasha 2, descending order of $$
@adsell It seems you are still enjoying your Sophia 1; Did you ever demo anything again or bring another speaker home? I have had my Sophia 1 for about 3 years and absolutely love them. I got some EgglestonWorks Vigintis last summer and they fail...
