Lyra Titan i with a Manley Steelhead....settings??
Hey, cjfrbw.....just to confirm, I have been experimenting and am finding I like that 25 ohm Z setting. It just brings the cartridge alive, especially in the bass. Adding more seems to lean it out. (But, I didn't understand how you equated the 5.5... 
Lyra Titan i with a Manley Steelhead....settings??
Yes, thanks to Mark and Cjf....I have now set the Manley/Titan on the MC inputs, and the controls are MUCH more active/interactive.I do indeed now hear large differences in the control changes...Mark...thanks for the "insight" into what exactly I'... 
Lyra Titan i with a Manley Steelhead....settings??
Thanks, Cjfrbw....you sound well versed in using these combinations. I will try the MC inputs as you suggest and change some of the settings.John 
Tannoy Speakers
I'm incredibly happy with my Tannoy D-700's. Have added the supertweeter and a good subwoofer to complete the range. Running LOTS of power with bi-amping and Bi-wiring for 350 watts to each DRIVER as a result.Highly recommend them, and they come c...

Thanks, everyone....I've been jumping on "unopened, still-sealed" listings for LP's after several instances of buying "mint" used records of supposedly MFSL audiophile quality, that are 'scratchy' when played.Aggressive cleaning (VPI machine w/RRL...

Frequency Response of L.P's
Why then, (a little unrelated) does the Avalon Eidelon Diamond series speaker boast a supertweeter that goes to 100Khz? The 'regular' Eidelon goes up to about 40Khz.How high is the regular CD player capable of ??...... vs a phono cartridge??How hi... 
Pre-amp cables of different length? Or not??
Nrchy, I am vertically bi-amping with 2 channel amps. (MC352)One amp for the left speaker, one amp for the right.Then bi-wiring the speakers, so each driver has its own channel and speaker cable feeding it.This way, however, requires me to feed ea...
