Someone help me on these questions. I have a new ELAC PP2 phono preamp. It has a Mono switch. Is it a waste to buy a Hana Mono considering that Mono switch feature? The answer to this question will help me decide on a two arm capable TT or an arm ... 
Jazz for aficionados
If you live in SF Bay area you should try the SF Jazz Center for a performance. Great artists and a first rate acoustic venue. It may be the best in the Jazz Hall in the country. Always had a great time and good dinning in the center and other goo...

Hey guy, why assume something about me that not even close to being true. Why insult me for issues you have with others? You owe me an apology. My feedback is positive. You've posted over 1500 times, yet you have no "Feedback." I'm proud of my act... 
$2000 Budget for a speaker + integrated amplifier
Used Nola Boxer gets another vote. Pair with them with the Exposure 3010S that listed and he'll have one sweet system.

John Barnes...RIP
When I'm in Denver I always call John and Carl at Audio Unlimited to say I'm in town and I'll drop by to say hi and catch up on things - especially cars and racing. This has gone on for years. Today Carl called me back to let me that John had died...

Wilson Watt Puppy, which version?
Hard to audition past generations. I owned Wilson's since 3/2s. 5s, are both worthwhile. I would stick with the 7s as the better choice in your price range. 
Best shipper for 200lb amp?

Troubles with Sound-Smith return communications?
I am very sorry for the wording I used in starting this thread. I didn't realize how negative it sounded. The many positive responses speak volumes to Sound-smith credit as a service and product provided. Peter and I talked today and I'm very happ... 
Troubles with Sound-Smith return communications?
Thanks for all the good suggestions. Going to visit them is to far and to expensive. It would solve the problem, but Sunnyvale, CA to Peekskill, NY is quite a trip right now.A little hope appear from my cell phone records. I seems that they tired ...

Has2be, guess I was just nervous about doing it. Your comments helped gives me more confidence that its fairly straight forward. 
Additional armwand for Graham Phantom?
Once you get the settings right you got all the information you need. I keep a journal record for VTF and VTA settings for the three separate wand/cartridge combinations I have. Repeating those differenting settings is very easy on the Phantom. Az...
