Cornwall iv
The Cornwall was designed for "corner" or "wall" placement. Very easy to drive, until the divorce they were excellent R&R speakers. Everyone should own a set of horn speakers at least once on their journey. I've stumbled across little companie... 
AR-XB. Is it worth a new motor?
Parted out you should recover your cost with a good frame (revolutionary design), arm, bearings, plinth and platter. BUT the AR-XB is a fine piece of audio history and worth saving or passing on. Acoustic Research was a benchmark company. Here's a... 
Amazon Music Question
I had a similar problem with Prime Video. It was suggested I try another browser. Chrome got me in. But now back to my old browser with no problems.  
Dedicated 20 amp circuit. 10/2 or 10/3?
Circuit breakers at the Bus? If you are running a dedicated breaker for each piece of equipment (you are going to need some 2 and 5 amp breakers, and with no AC motor loads I would ask why have a separate circuit for everything?... I would first c... 
A persistent hummmm...
I just recently purchased a new, to me, amp and had a persistent hum. I used my fluke to test the shield on all the interconnects, all good. The new amp was a 2 conductor wall plug, didn't matter if it was plugged in 180 degrees or not (which some... 
Thinking about switching cartridges.

How does bi-wiring work?
@tomic601 does true bi-wiring bypass the crossover in a speaker?  
Measurements for a dedicated line
Combining, or "sharing" the Neutral Leg (white wire) can cause an imbalance of a voltage on the Neutral Leg. When a homeowner, or their "handy man" add an outlet, or a light fixture, or another modification to the home wiring, it is tempting to at...

Volume levels
@asvjerry My cat found my in ear assistance devices carelessly left on my desk, so clearly every thing that then happened was my fault. One of the devices must still be on the feline mothership for study (or, it might have been in the cat box...) ... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
I cook my cables between the TT, the phono stage, the preamp, the amp, and the speakers. Everything in my main systems has no problem logging at least 50-60 hours a week during the winter, about half that during summer. I don't use a steady modula... 
Buying from Japan...Accuphase or Luxman what are the costs ? import duties etc
You can google USA customs duty. There is a gov't site that lists everything by category.  Did I say EVERYTHING? I found it when I was importing a TT from Japan. BTW there is no duty for record players or record player parts (my TT and my recent t...
