Shipping prices and buyers...
I'm going through this now. I purchased an item at a specific price with a specific fee for shipping it. The buyer agreed on the price and then discovered shipping was twice what he thought. Another $400 was requested by the seller. He offered to ...

Fosgate vs Allnic 1201?
Thanks Dhcod,I've heard some Herron gear before that sounded really nice, though not the phono stages. I know the VTPH-2 gets some rave reviews here too, and I might have put it on my list, except the hardest thing to do seems to be pairing one's ...

The Q ups work really well. I have an original one of these from back when Thorens made them, on my Oracle MKV.They're not as techie looking as the Saftey Raiser, but it has worked for decades... 
Legacy Audio AERIS: RMAF/listening impressions?
I just heard these at CAS. The sound was amazing. Talking with James at Legacy, he informed me that the sound is largely due to the new DSP unit being able to dial in to your room. Of course, the rest of the speakers and electronics are paramount,...

Does anyone know, if like with AR gear, you can order face plates for these in another color from what you have?

Which speaker did TAS put in place of Gallo 3
Thanks all for the coments. I still like my Gallos w the Brightstar stands and the sub base amp. I liked them before all the extras too. Sometimes I get the upgrade bug and try to look for the next component to change in my system. I know that roo...

Cambridge Audio 840C
I find I am once again guilty of tired brain = confusing post syndrome. My note above should have read:I started with UNBALANCED cables that were well broken in, and then my balanced cables arrived that I'd ordered specifically for the "improved s... 
Cambridge Audio 840C
I did a brief comparison between my unbalanced and my balanced cables, but I suppose it's a bit of an unfair one as it was during the first 200 hours when things were breaking in. I started with balanced cables that were well broken in, and then m...
