3 New UBER Decks - Is this Turntable's SwanSong? 🦢
@dover It’s all smoke and mirrors and fanciful postulation from the uneducated.👍I've heard nothing but positive reports about Bruce Thigpen and especially his ET 2.5 Airbearing Tonearm.For years I've dreamt about installing his ingenious TRW-17 at...

A far more accurate and useful metric of the speed accuracy of a TT is to simply look at the raw yellow trace, ignoring the numbers. How close is it to the ideal symmetrical, clean, constant amplitude, sine wave?I can't see a clean, constant-ampli...

I introduced this Thread by describing the limitations of the PlatterSpeed App that Michael Fremer has been using for years to test turntables.The GRAPH produced with the PlatterSpeed App is accurate and USEABLE when looking at the 'Green' Lowpass...

BTW the TT-101 is one of the TT's that has the subsonic resonance.Please have the courtesy to show the evidence for this statement...🤥

The Yellow trace is a a long way away from the ideal sine wave, its pretty messy. This TT is not micro speed stable. So you're basically saying.....with the PlatterSpeed AppIgnore the numbersIgnore the Green Trace (Low-Pass Filtered Frequency)Just...

I know my hearing is good - 18khz at my last hearing test, and reasonably flat.Good grief @dover ....that's amazing!Mine cuts out at about 11K Hz....🙉No wonder you can hear things on my YouTube videos that I can't!!!The chances that he can set up ...

But the reality is he is now 74 years old by my reckoning.Hey Dover.....I resemble that remark 🥴I think you're being unduly harsh on Mikey...What I am saying is that Fremers comments are conditioned by his own historical imperfect equipment. Unles...

They can’t tell that old high-end DDs are better (and 100 times cheaper) than some new high-end DDs. Same about cartridges. Old cartridges you and I agree on, and I admire your stamina in continuing to repeat this message over and over again on th...

Just for the record....if Mikey claims that the OMA-K3 produced the BEST speed and wow/flutter figures of any turntable he has ever tested...CHART INFO OMA-K3 CHART INFO VICTOR TT-101 Then the savvy engineers at Victor in Japan, managed to produce...

I don’t have a problem with Mikey’s reviews of these three turntables....He doesn’t pronounce a ’winner’ and he treads a diplomatic path between all three which is understandable considering the huge costs each manufacturer bore in relation to del... 
Hear my Cartridges....🎶
Thanks for all that info @dover This Glanz is a strange beast.....Haven’t experienced a cartridge quite like it before 🧐It can change its sound whilst I’m sitting listening to it!!!??As a consequence of the low inductance it is very sensitive to r...

I seem to recall Frogman, that you really liked the Glanz the previous comparisons I posted as that is why I mounted it in the Dynavector DV-507Mk 2 last week for an extended listening.And I agree with you 😉It is beginning to sound even better wit... 
Hear my Cartridges....🎶
@dover Yes....20k Ohms and 40k Ohms......Unfortunately my Glanz came without box or specs.I seem to recall that some Poster on A’Gon alerted us to the fact that there was a Seller offloading a handful of these NOS cartridges....HERE is a close-up ... 
Hear my Cartridges....🎶
Thanks for the advice @dover re the Glanz MFG 610LX.As you suggest.....I find mine to be PARTICULARLY sensitive to all the parameters of set-up, although that may be exacerbated by the fact that I have less than 100 hours playing time on it?I foun...
