how to use LDA quartz regenerator??? help
Are there no adjustments that affect voltage or current output from the LDA? If so, have you fiddled with them? http://www.turntablepsu.com/lda.html   
how to use LDA quartz regenerator??? help
Well OP, was it the back toggle speed lock engaged? If that does not solve the problem, plug the 401 directly into the wall and check for speed. Perhaps your motor needs a rebuild? How are you monitoring the speed? The strobe markings on the 401... 
how to use LDA quartz regenerator??? help
Is the speed lock engaged in the back? Disengage the toggle for speed lock and try again. I presume you have the 401 plugged into the back of the LDA and the LDA plugged in. It is hardly complicated. If this does not work, than there is either a d... 
Integrated for Devore O/93
As an owner of O/93's I can not help you as to an integrated but feel compelled to tell you that the Auditorium 23 speaker cables really do something magical with the O/93's. They are more pleasing than Cardas Clear Beyond that I also have. I have... 
Good Speakers for Rock and Roll Under 15K
My two picks if it were me are the Devore O/96's and the Volti Rival. The Rival is $1,000 over budget and if you are strictly limiting yourself to 15K, than the Razz would be just fine. I really have no clue why I am diving into this thread-the s... 
Advantages with an outboard power supply
I don't believe anyone has answered your question. Then again, it has been covered many times. The power supply is the heart of any audio component. In recent years, switching wall-wart power supplies have become popular because they work very wel... 
Vibration Question
You asked for help. The rest of are not there and can only go off of the available information. I gave you my very best guess and very questionable opinion.   
Vibration Question
Well, the 18th century oak chest wins over all other considerations! It's worth more than all my hi-fi and records. Don't take me literally. I meant to ditch it as the base for your turntable. Looking at the photo you posted the chance of the t... 
Vibration Question
Here, finally is the question: he thinks I am simply introducing twice as many vibrations (external, I think he means) into the tonearm by having it rest in two sites on the oak chest, and that I would be better off having one end of the tonearm ... 
Vibration Question
@mijostyn For once I am in agreement. I have said it. elsewhere in this forum. Even the pivoting leaf type of mount found on many turntables such as this one is significant compromise. It offers versatility if you change tonearms and easy adjustme... 
Ultimate Turntable search...OMA K5 or ?
@ddgtt  I owe you an apology. I looked at other folks who are in the industry and though I thought they had a signature identifying their business affiliation, they don't.   
Ultimate Turntable search...OMA K5 or ?
@ddgtt You acknowledge "being in the audio business" in some but not most of your limited number of posts. I thought it was a Forums rule that you identify your business if you are in one. Maybe I am confusing the many fora I visit. Regardless, ho... 
My New Year’s Wish for my fellow audiophiles.
This community is a big part of my love for audio so thank you and right back at you-and to all of the rest of you.   
A little deeper on amp power please....
I think that is why there are class D amps now that are shutting down class A solid state designs for sheer musicality. Ralph, others have posted here and there with the question "what is meant by musicality?". They do so because the word is va...

Oftentimes a radically different design seems jarring and ugly at first and then with time it grows on you. It is integral to human behavior-we are initially drawn to the subjective impressions we are accustomed to. One need only look to automobil...
