Rathbone,After a little over 100 hours on the speaker cables I think they sound pretty good. I wouldn't describe them as you have though, they have plenty of excitement and extension both top and bottom. My only fear was of the midrange and it cam...

I'm no expert, but here are the arms I used with a single collet.Rega RB600OL SilverBluenote BorromeoBluenote BorgheseNottingham SpacearmThe Bluenote arms were a tight fit, but I could still manage it. All the rest were identical.Oz 
Help Low Freq. From Totems? Is it there?
I brought home a pair of Forests over the summer to compare to my now departed VR2s. In the dealer showroom the Forest had plenty of bass and slam, but couldn't compete with the von schweikerts in my rather large (26X16) room. And the uppper midba... 
Interspace and rega arm question -- help
FWIW, my I have used Bluenote, Rega, OL, and Nottingham arms on my Spacedeck with the same inner collet. And if memory serves me right, my buddy used the same collet on his Interspace table for his OL RB 250 that he now uses with his Interspace ar...

Thanks for your input. How do you like the AP power cords? And what have you compared them to?Oz 
Any sonic benefits of bi-wiring speakers ?
It is really speaker/xover dependant. I just went through this myself with my Montanas. I tried a jumper with a set of Luminous Synchestra Sigs thinking I could cheap out and not buy another pair. Wrong! It is very obvious that these speakers need... 
Help with new Nottingham Spacedeck
Good call Doug, I didn't even think of loading. I do think the Nott cartridges are MC and he may need to load it down a little. That would certainly explain the thin sound he is experiencing.Oz 
Help with new Nottingham Spacedeck
There is obviously a problem because what you describe is NOT how a Spacedeck sounds. I would look at the cart. alignment, and perhaps the chance that the cart. just needs break in time. They all do. Check the alignment, VTA, and VTF and if all is... 
Montana Speakers? Have they fizzled out?
I have never heard their flagship offerings, but I am on my second pair of SP2 Signatures after foolishly selling the first. I have owned speakers from Magnepan, Von Schweikert, Meadowlark, Roman Audio,.....etc..., but none have captured my soul l... 
Tube Amp Suggestions
So you have no opinions of your own? You must follow Linkwitz like a lemming????And as for your remark about the president, your way of thinking.....or not thinking, made me know right away you were a liberal. You would rather someone else made up... 
Good question, lots of answers.
What exactly was "the question"?Oz 
Tube Amp Suggestions
Do you listen to test tones or music? I guarantee you that any moderately good sounding tube amp will slay your SS home theater amps. Oz 
Von Schweikert VR2 vs Sonus Faber Grand Piano H
One thing I can see from your pics is that the VR2s are too close together. I realize that your options are probably limited, but that is what I found to be true when I had the VR2s. They sounded their best at about 10 ft. apart (measured from the...

Speakers you regret selling
I had only slight remorse about selling the maggies, didn't last long. I have had the VR2s since March, but they ship out today. A very nice speaker which does a lot of things right, but can't match the magic of the Montanas.Oz
