JBL L100 Century Crossover?

Best DIY Phono Pre?
You should visit DIY Audio. If I recall correctly, they have a XONO kit or guide to building one. 
Wasn't this forum going to be updated?
"If it is not broken why fix it?" as the saying goes. This current set up has a simple and clean layout and easy to navigate.Why disparage the Audiogon staff?

Suggestions for arm to replace VPI 12.7
Have you looked at the Transfi Terminator tone arm? Dave Garretson has one on his highly modified VPI TNT. Read some of his threads on the subject both here and on Audio Asylum.
