cheapest speaker made in the last 10 year that can beat any speaker made before 1970?
It's gonna take a lot to beat a set of Quad ESLs or many other high end speakers of yesterday, if you even can.  
Can I Trust The Music Room's Product Description?
I've had nothing but positive experiences with them.  
Cheap used LP's: They're still out there!
@thecarpathian The seller feedback is critical!  I know everyone has to get a start, and on rare occasions I’ll take a chance.  But my general rule of thumb is at least 1000 ratings and at least 99.8%.  I still get burned on rare occasions, but ov... 
Cheap used LP's: They're still out there!
I’ve found that with a truly proper cleaning, many records assumed to be VG or VG+ are actually NM.  The best cleaning isn’t cheap, but with a large collection or lots of purchases can pay for itself.  It seems to be an area where people who spend... 
Turntable recommendation
As someone who listens to 95% or more vinyl, I have to say that if you’re currently used to streaming and CD, unless you’re committed to a significant investment I think you’re setting yourself up for a disappointment.  Vinyl on a budget is pretty...

Setting up turntable/Sumiko BluePoint with Pro Ject RS box
I bought a Hana ML almost the day it was released.  It is a steal at full price.  At true audiophile cartridge.  I recently upgraded, but plan to keep the ML as a backup for when the new more expensive carts need retipping.  Pull the trigger if yo... 
How many of you streaming?
I’m about 95% vinyl, with the rest a combination of CD and streaming.  Either way, I almost always play an album start to finish.

my shortlist for integrated Harbethsuper hl5 plus xd - please advise
I can’t imagine anyone ever being disappointed with Luxman.  I’d take that over any of the options listed.  Harbeths and Luxman could easily be a lifetime system.  
Who has tried one of the PS Audio Power Regenerators?
I currently run a PP5 and a PP12 and can’t imagine not having them in my system given the improvement they make.  
Who has tried one of the PS Audio Power Regenerators?
@markny2011 My understanding is that some critical parts for the PPP became NLA. I saw someone say that while they would no longer service them due to parts availability they would provide schematics and service info. You might ask them about that... 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Sure wish there was a “Like” option here. I see some great music being played tonight! 👍🏼  
Roon….The Gordon Knot of concierge musical services?
I’ve had lifetime on Roon since early days on my iMac and it has never given me a moments trouble with my iPhone or iPad.  Not suggesting you go Apple on your core, but perhaps a Microsoft surface with your Windows core will work better.  Good luc...
