recommend PRAT Integrated amplifiers (not Naim)
“PRAT” simply has too many variables to narrow it down to this or that integrated, or amp. Also, I completely disagree that the top end Simaudio gear lacks “PRAT” I’m talking about the 600iv2, 700iv2 and the new North collection. All are absolutel... 
I took Frank Zappa’s advice
Geez, you guys are complicating this too much… let’s just be dancin’ fools!  
Seeking Legit Cartridge Expert?
The Hana’s are a little fickle setup wise. Once dialed they are excellent carts. I have a Red. Great cart. Try the Umami Blue if you like the general vibe of the ML. Not sure a 3k cart on a 3/4k TT is going to get you your value for the money. You... 
Is toeing speakers a bad idea?
Depends on the speaker. Some are designed to be toed. Sounds like you figured yours out…  
Besides the BBB how do you fight claim resolution against FedEx
The only time you might have a case with Fed Ex is if you used the factory shipping box and system as they are designed to handle shipping stress. Not 100% foolproof, but you’ll be in a better position. Rarely will any of the big companies pay out... 
Hana S or z Hana M Low output MC Cartridge?
Do the ML and don’t look back. The S is decent, but the ML is a great cart for the $$$.  
Did I damage my new amp
Yeah, that is one thing about airplay that sucks. It is an easy mistake to make, especially if one is not aware it can happen. You may have distorted your voice coil/s on one or more of your speakers. If they hit max excursion all at once they can... 
Robert Plant
Well, Zeppelin… Hmm as a drummer that had the pleasure of playing in a Zepp Tribute I can say I have a unique perspective on the music and the band. As a life long fan, seeing TSRTS many, many times at midnight movies I didn’t really get it. I nev...

@wig it would appear you were charged the international transaction fee…  
Do you adjust your subwoofer
I’ve got a Rel s510 and once it’s dialed it pretty much stays that way across the board. Possibly a tweak here or there, but rare.

If you use a credit card for an F&F transaction you will get charged a fee. You might even get hit with a higher CC rate as it is technically a “cash advance”. If the seller was charged a fee, then you didn’t send it F&F. F&F is essent... 
Speaker binding posts with plastic covers
They unscrew, but not the whole thing. The spade actually goes between the bracket looking portion. If you are trying to unscrew the entire thing you will break it. Just unscrew from the top of the connector. Should unscrew pretty easily,  
Has buying and/or selling audio gear changed?
This entire discussion goes back to the “buy the seller” concept. Do some due diligence, ask questions, look at feedback. F&F has become more a standard now as PayPal has implemented several new “security” policies that hold money, cause probl... 
help choosing a turn table
@rbgator94 congrats! Have fun with the new TT. You can always upgrade to whatever your budget will allow down the road. Or, you’ll have a blast with the Rega and be good to go!   
help choosing a turn table
If you buy, or have an integrated (or preamp) with a phono stage it makes things a bit easier. The Rega Planar 3 is a good start, plus saves a bit of money for a phono stage and interconnects. 2k goes REALLY quick in a TT setup.
