Records not stored vertically for decades
soix, I've seen many cautions against horizontal stacking but never read any specific reports of damage when doing that.  I assume it relates to flatness since humidity or mold could be a problem when stored at any angle. Apparently your turntabl... 
Any normal size speakers that sound like Volti
@acman3, no update on the potential new room so some thoughts. 1.  Have a frank discussion with your wife about her objections.  As others suggested is it the size of the speakers or actually all the components in the living room? 2.  If truly t... 
Help with Dunlavy SC-IV signature
Duntech/DAL crossovers -  The crossover board on my Duntech Princess was accessed by a removable panel on the back of the cabinet.  Once opened the board could be slid out since mounted on drawer rollers. A friend of mine with design background w... 
Help with Dunlavy SC-IV signature
@cerberus79,  good that you got to the bottom of the problem, even after no longer owning the speakers. I enjoyed a pair of Duntech Princess speakers for 19 years and would like to clarify a few points here. John Dunlavy began his speaker busine... 
Dunlavy SC-IV vs Duntech Princess
Hi grumpybb, Fun moniker by the way. Since I'm the only one who replied, you comments must be directed to me.  Notice I said "less expensive drivers" and did not suggest any exotic example comparison.  My Duntechs had Dynaudio and Scanspeak driv... 
SL1200G - Tonearm shape from side question for owners
@chriscox000, I never noticed any irregularity with mine, but you made me double check.  I don't see any downward curve. I do agree it sounds great, even with my current modest Shure V15 4 with SAS stylus. You should still take a photo with a st... 
Five feet from the front wall
@mijostyn, I expect you intended "It is .  .  ." when you said, "If is extremely hard to over dampen a room." But I guess it is not impossible.  Several years ago I had a friend who was a reviewer for one online audio magazine.  Being serious abo... 
Five feet from the front wall
Based on my reading I agree with bdp24 regarding the 5' minimal placement, at least for dipoles. Bell Labs research determined the 10 ms minimal delay between direct and reflected sound for best clarity.  That applies to side wall reflections as ... 
Tannoy Westminster’s Audition?
A potential closer suggestion. Contact Jim Smith, a well know system and set up consultant ("Get Better Sound").  He lives near Atlanta and previously used Tannoy Canterbury SEs in his main system.  He may know of any Westminster owners in the so... 
Synthesis Amplifiers: One of High End's Best Kept Secrets?
Thanks @woodsage.  If the A100 Titan is wired the same as your Synthesis gear then my suggestion was a waste of time.  Oh well, doesn't hurt to try being helpful.  
KEF R3 Meta's - too much for my Marantz Model 30?
painter, you won't be wasting your or the dealer's time if you are serious about the KEFs.  You want to know about the match, and they can't expect a sale with every demo.  
Synthesis Amplifiers: One of High End's Best Kept Secrets?
walter, yes, be very careful what you touch inside the amp. Remove all the tubes before turning it over and removing the bottom cover.  Don't want any accident with those. Take whatever photos as necessary of original wiring to be certain all co... 
Synthesis Amplifiers: One of High End's Best Kept Secrets?
Walter/Chris, and others, re: biasing problem. Years ago I got a pair of Cary 100w mono amps.  I enjoyed the sonic match with my speakers at that time but was frustrated that the bias pots were installed inside the amp chassis.  Needless to say a... 
Technic’s Malaysian turntables …QC experience/ feedback from actual users/owners?
I bought a new 1200G from Galen Carol a few months ago.  No quality problems at all.  A beautiful sounding table and arm, very musically satisfying.  
Steve Guttenberg finally reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8b loudspeaker.
@mirolab, that single file seating sounds like the Sanders electrostatic speaker set up.  I've seen it at multiple audio shows.  It doesn't appeal to me either. Now I don't remember ever seeing ET speakers at an audio show.  But all the photos or...
