Update my Tonearm
Can you tell if the hum is electrical or physical (vibration)? What exactly Are you touching on the turntable to make the hum go away?  
Amp — Leave on or turn off
SS Always on. Tubes off. I don’t mind waiting for them to warm up.  
One DAC to Rule it All
@koestner I agree that only you will be able to tell if you prefer the sound of the DBX (as a DAC) or your OKTO. I’d try it without the OKTO and perhaps live with that for a few weeks or months. As I recall, @mijostyn has posted about this in th... 
Does anyone own CD of Oreobambo - Spinning Around Our Star
   @sparksgja Thank you!  
New Phono Cart with Character Needed
Flat, clinical and dry could be a tonearm/cartridge setup issue such as VTA, alignment, etc.  I’m partial to SoundSmith cartridges, although in my experience, they tend to be neutral and very accurate. If you’re looking for a cartridge that adds ... 
Vinyl is back for good and that’s exciting
It appears that only half of the people who buy records actually own a turntable.   
Goodbye Everyone
Merry Christmas, @elliottbnewcombjr, keep going!  
What say you?
@yogiboy i really enjoyed watching this. Thank you!  
What percentage of digital vs. analog?
It varies. Digital for convenience, vinyl for preference. Also, I use Roon which is continuously presenting me with new (to me) music which drives my LP purchases.  
Turntable dust cover cleaning

Two questions to make you mad.
Not even mildly irritated.  
Magnepans and dogs
@jrsyby I can't offer a scientific explanation but my two dogs enjoy my maggies as well. I was starting to wonder if they too had an affinity for Jazz. A few nights ago we were listening to Idle Moments by Grant Green and just as Joe Henderson's s... 
Would you choose 1 ou 2 subwoofers for a stereo set?
Two subs or more. I’m using a pair of Rythmik subs,  F12SE-XLR3 and A370XLR3 amp https://www.rythmikaudio.com/download/XLR3_sealed_quickguide.pdf I’m  also using a Sublimeacoustic K231 as a 2 way XO. The miniDSP XO sounds promising, especially w... 
Tonearm issue
OP, I had the same issue w/ my Technoarm, left channel would go out intermittently. The tonearm cable was frayed at the RCA connector, apparently this is not an uncommon problem w/ the Technoarm. I upgraded to a SME M2 9R, however, I do intend to... 
A Discussion About What Level Of Analog To Stop At
Just my thoughts, keep your favorite turntable, tonearm, and phono. Swap out cartridges at your leisure. Both your turntables are very nice. It would be a difficult choice for me, but I think the SOTA is a keeper.    Best of  luck with your decis...
