SOTA Total Eclipse Package
It is a fine arm and has a feature that allows you tilt the arm to refine the azimuth, which I consider to be an important feature. I did not specifically seek out that arm, it came with the TT purchase and has been reported by others to be an ide... 
stereo review magazine
I was a subscriber of SR in the ’60s and early ’70s. Julian Hirsch, whose column was featured in every issue, did a great disservice to the budding audiophile community of the ’60s by repeatedly promoting solid state amplification over vacuum tube... 
Victory at Sea - original LPs Vs Remastered LP or CD
Thank you 4Track. I did not know there were separate records for the soundtrack and for the recording sessions.  The only vinyl I have seen is the two record set RCA VCS-7064. This appears to be the recording session and not a movie soundtrack, wh... 
Takedown of pricey servers, streamers OCD HiFi guy
Thank you, I‘ll check them as I need to get on board with this technology.

As someone who knows very little about streamers and servers I found the video informative on the sort of basic level needed to begin looking. Thank you for posting this. 
SOTA Total Eclipse Package
Yes, with Morch DP8 arm 
Whats your favourite track to play to the non hi-fi visitor?
Thelma Houston and Pressure Cooker, RR-2 have been mentioned a couple of times.  I have two copies and would sell one if anyone is interested. $10 plus shipping.  Play graded as excellent. 
Whats your favourite track to play to the non hi-fi visitor?
This is an odd one but in the late '60s Jerry Garcia and Howard Wales made an album of music that is hard to describe or classify, at least for me, as it is a mix of several genres.  The album was called "Hooteroll" and there is one cut on the alb... 
Best ultrasonic lp cleaner in 2020 and what surfactant best?
@tablejockey The Spin Clean works fine, I have one of those also, but you still have to dry the record whether using the Spin Clean or whatever.  So your point that the extra step of drying the record  further adds to the complexity is moot.  The ... 
Best ultrasonic lp cleaner in 2020 and what surfactant best?
I have the  Kirmuss Ultrasonic RCM and all you do press the clean button and it cleans 3 records the in 5 minutes.  There are no steps.  All ultrasonic cleaning systems, whether for records, jewelry, medical instruments or eyeglasses require that ... 
Sue Kraft
My condolences.  I enjoyed her reviews and she was one of a very few females in this male dominated hobby.  Perhaps you may not want to disclose this, but if we knew her location it may be much easier to find a home for her audio gear. 
What's the best non-DAC streamer?
Could I ask some naive questions about streaming and subscriptions, as I do not do any of this at present and am trying to conceptualize how it all works.  From the thread I understand that Qobuz, Tidal and others are subscriptions preferable over... 
Don't like vinyl
aewarren:  Well said!  Even when the plan is to have some background music, I am drawn to "the chair" if the TT is spinning a record.  I have pondered this often and can come up with no reasonable explanation. 
Speakers that are a great value!
Since you are on a budget (as are we all to some degree) I would suggest you narrow your speaker options down to high efficiency speakers, ie 95db or more.  The reason being that you can cut costs by buying a lower power or perhaps integrated tube... 
More Dynamic Speakers Than Vienna Acoustic
I second what Wolf said.  Micro and macro dynamic responses improve rather dramatically when you jump to horns, especially in the 100 db efficiency range.I made the change years ago (AG Trios) and have never felt the need to update my system.  The...
