The user Halcro stopped posting in 2021. Anyone know what happened to him? @rauliruegas @dover

@rauliruegas  I've had the 3012R longer that WBF has been in existence. I've been patiently waiting for your tonearm to debut so I can buy that.....😀   I actually really enjoy my MM carts, I was just having a little fun. I also really enjoy you...

@mijostyn  I can absolutely trust my ears when I'm listening to a system. We listened to 3 turntables, two were fitted with the Etsuro Gold cartridges. The DaVa was head and shoulders above the Etsuro's to my ears. Dynamics, tone, and flow were s...

@mijostyn ​​​​@rauliruegas  You guys really do make me laugh. Don't like the design so you are going to draw opinions about the sound but are not willing to actually hear it in a system. Thank you both for the entertainment. I've heard the DaVa ...

@thiefoflight the VIDA replaced a Lamm LP2.1 Deluxe. The VIDA matches the Lamm in terms of resolution but is much more quiet.

@thiefoflight I got the name wrong and the system wouldn't let me edit. I have the VIDA MKII and I'm very pleased. It's dead quiet but still extremely engaging.

I have purchased a Viva Aurora MkII and think it's absolutely fantastic. It replaced a Lamm LP2.1 Deluxe.   
I wrote/mailed tax checks today...
Funny....I never had to write a check to the tax man until Trump changed the tax code. Never has there been a president that wanted to punish the people that didn't vote for him. I guess why he lost 2020. 
Where did he go?
Too bad. He was a valued contributor to this forum.  
If you have a rebuilt Garrard or Lenco you need this!
Question: do you still use the speed adjustment on the Garrard 401 to dial in the speed? 
SAEC WE-308 L or a new tonearm?
@rauliruegas the latest GM comes with silver wire and a titanium arm. I really think it’s an amazing value. What is your favorite Jelco model?  
SAEC WE-308 L or a new tonearm?
@rauliruegas the 4Point is an excellent arm but is 4X the price of the Groovemaster. Also, you are limited by its lack of a SME bayonet mount.  
SAEC WE-308 L or a new tonearm?
The Groovemaster is vastly superior to any Jelco you can buy. I've been using it with Ortofon SPU's, Denon 103R and some vintage MM carts. Check out the Groovemaster thread on What's Best Forum, there's a lot of good information there.

Halcro,Well done my friend and keep up the good work! I've purchased a Ortofon SPU A95, if you have a chance to try one I'd suggest it. Signet 7TK-SU is still my current favorite on my Acoustic Signature Ascona and SME 3012R.
