Nordost Blue Heaven vs Shunyata Venom V10 NR
Isn't the Red Dawn in general, supposed to have a bit of added body in comparison to other Nordost models.  
Question on Soundsmith carts
chaster- may I ask if you have made the comparison on these.  
impractical to spend $200 to terminate Mogami 3103 speaker cable??
Thanks so much for all of the info. I was thinking of Auditorium 23 Bananas, which I've always enjoyed working with, and listening to. It's a bit elusive as to what A23 uses, but I believe it's model L4 beryllium copper. I'm wondering if it may be... 
impractical to spend $200 to terminate Mogami 3103 speaker cable??
Thanks no romance...was not aware of Rhodium having a signature. What's the word on the street there (-:... I ordered these from performance audio, and correct, as bare wire. They dabbed around 1/3" of solder on each end, and I don't like the conn... 
Dedicated Harbeth P3 Thread
I no longer own the P3's, and now own the C7's. I have a fair sized (12 X 23') room, and use a Croft phono integrated, I have a Luxman 550 AXii on the way, so in transition. No question the 7's fill my space better where the 3's got lost in the ro... 
Werner Jagusch Crossovers Damaged on Delivery - Can I Repair?
Fellow Altec 846A and Werner Crossover owner here. Glad you have your issue sorted. Any general impressions on the difference between stock crossover and Werner yet? Cheers -Don 
Luxman integrated for Harbeth Compact 7's
I have not received my 550 yet. Will chime back with an update. I should be getting close...ordered roughly 3 weeks ago. Cheers -Don 
The CJ Premiere 12 was the best vintage tube amplifier ever.
100 %...just agree that these are really good amps. I didn't make that very clear (-: 
The CJ Premiere 12 was the best vintage tube amplifier ever.
I had the Premier 8A, and can concur with Erik on this. The 12’s were essentially a lower power (half the output tubes) 8A. I would think the 12’s would be at least as good or better given the speaker isn’t too power hungry. When I see this teflon... 
Cartridge recommendations under $2500
I own 3 cartridges, all of which I enjoy, all within you $ range. EMT Tsd-75, Air Tight PC 7, and Charisma Audio (Denon) 103. The latter under $1000 last time I checked.  
Luxman integrated for Harbeth Compact 7's
Thank you- the reason I was on the fence with the 550 was the rated power, and if it would be enough for my 86 db Harbeths. My guess is there will be a trade off of giving up ultimate grip and control in favor of refinement. In this instance, I'm ... 
Cube Audio Nenuphar Single Driver Speaker (10 inch) TQWT Enclosure
Just saw the A/V forum video review from Peter B. on this speaker. Looks promising. I confess not having read through this thread, but the Impedance spec is no where to be found on their website.  
Luxman integrated for Harbeth Compact 7's
Luxman 550 AXii ordered. Thanks to all for your input.  
Kuzma 4 Point Tonearm
I quite enjoy my Ref 313 VTA, which is on my Stabi Ref 2. A lot less $ than the 4 Point. M. Fremer liked it a good bit, and spoke highly of it's value next to the 4 point. All personal preference of course.  
Who's using Harbeth with tubes, what speaker model and how many watts per channel?
Sorry to chime in, because I don’t have direct experience with tubes and Harbeth...Only my Croft (hybrid) amp, which is 45 watts per channel. That has driven my (now sold) P3’s, and current C7’s. I have a fair size space...23 X 12 X 8 ft ceilings....
