Digital guy, thinking of taking the analog plunge.
I was in you shoes about two years ago ... all I can tell you is in my case it's been well worth the "journey". I say that because at first I just wanted an older vintage table with a basic cart and be done with it. We had a little "audiohead" gat... 
Led Zep 45th Anniversary Shows at O2 in 2012
I'd settle for a remasted box set of the original albums on vinyl ... and a fresh box of depends. 
Perfect Debute Albums
'Man, what a tasty list of music so far, I have a few to add :Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas FloodSpringsteen - Greeting from Asbury Park NJU2 - BoyAerosmith - AerosmithAll of these bands went on to put out some great music but I always go back to the... 
Klipsch Heritage Series
I've owned Heresy's and LaScalla's and I always thought they had the potential for great sound. Like with your setup, I ended up running them with "not so great" electronics and dumped them in search of a smoother sound. Horns have inherent streng... 
Where to put best tubes in AR Ph3-SE
FWIW :I bought a PH3-SE after hearing so many good things about it. When I got it setup I was never really all that happy with it. I tried to read up on tube rolling suggestions for the PH3 but I had trouble finding much written about it. I did ge... 
Levinson 360 vs Benchmark
You hit the nail on the head ...I paid nearly $2000 for a used No. 37 transport which was supposed to be in perfect shape. Within a year it was skipping ... I had a very competent local tech look at it and he did all he could but it needed a new l... 
Levinson 360 vs Benchmark
I ran a first gen Benchmark next to my Levinson 360s for about two weeks (borrowed it). On my system the Levinson took the brass ring ... I like the Benchmark and I will probably buy one just to play with. I might even invest in a mod or two but I... 
Which turntables?
I'm no expert but I have a Denon DP 62L ... seems like a great table and I picked it up for a song but I matched it up with a Sumiko Blackbird. The VTA adjustment on the Denon can¬ít quite come up enough to work well with the Blackbird. The body of... 
Marantz as a preamp?
.I'm running the 20's through a little Carver amp controled by my PC. Good sound but I would consider a small tube amp with the Marantz as a pre. I am thinking about a Dynaco rebuild myself ... the Paradigms love tubes and seem to shine. I had a l... 
Mac sound quality
Odd ... I am running the same DAC fed via a Windows box with FLAC files. The sound is at least as good and in some cases I feel its slightly better than my Wadia 23 CDP. It's pretty amazing. That being said, I am bailing on Windows and going to a ... 
Denon DP-59L vs DP-72L vintage turntables
Thanks for the advice ...After I posted I got to thinking. I have a vintage Pioneer silver system with both the SPEC 2 and SPEC 4 amps, SPEC 1 pre, Tuner, EQ, cassette deck (CTF-1250) I even have the reverb unit and "dynamic range expander" The wh... 
Denon DP-59L vs DP-72L vintage turntables
I agree with Elizabeth, I am running a DP-62L and never received the second "S" shaped arm. It too was in near mint shape and an excellent example of a classic turntable. I really wished I had all the accessories that came with the original TT. I ...

Allman Bros concert
God bless the Allmans ... PND, I am envious I missed the show,I am a HUGE ABB fan ... too many shows to count and I have seen the Mule enough times to earn the name Horseface. The name was a Mule inspired flash the boys came up with after the Chic...
