Gingko vs. pucks
I have a suspended hardwood floor in my listening room. My Space 294 turntable sits on a lead filled rack. Before, I had to be careful walking around as foot falls near the rack could cause it to skip. A Ginkgo Cloud 11 under the turntable fixed t... 
Nottingham Analogue Hyperspace
I'll second what Motnic said. I've had a Nottingham Space Deck with Space Arm and currently own a Space 294. I ran a dual arm setup on the Space Deck using a Micro Seiki MA505 MKIII, and the MA505 was a more dynamic arm. I replaced the Ace Space 2... 
Lenco owners - arm/cart discussion,suggestions?
Lewm, what arm did you have on that Hyperspace? Currently I have a Moerch DP6/Dyna 17D3 on a Space 294. I've had a couple of Nottinghams. I preferred them with different arms (Rega, Origin Live, Micro Seiki). I felt they made the tables sound more... 
From LP12 to where...?
I had an LP12. While I believe there is no substitute for proper tools and experience, the LP12 is not that mysterious to set up. Perhaps the hardest thing were the coil springs in the suspension have to be turned to the correct clock positions to... 
Nottingham
High marks on your mod.I have the a least best combination for my turntable (a Space 294 with Moerch DP6 arm), hardwood floors with a lead filled rack that sits on the floor. I just picked up a used Gingko Cloud 11 and replaced the Nottingham base... 
TW Raven One vs. Nottingham 294?
I believe the Space 294 is a great value, especially if you can pick one up used or get a dealer demo like I did. You can always swap the arm out later if you want to change how it sounds.I¬íve never heard a Raven, but have heard more expensive tab... 
TW Raven One vs. Nottingham 294?
I upgraded from an older Spacedeck (with the thinner platter) with Space Arm to a Space 294 and it was a significant improvement. A dealer told me the difference between the Space 294 and the newer thicker platter Spacedecks with Ace Space arm is ... 
My tube amp power supply is buzzing away Help
Hi Grannyring,I'm glad the fix worked out for you too. I had expressed my comments about Peter's amp in this thread and still feel the same way about it.http://forum.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/fr.pl?aamps&1104420062&read&keyw&zzmcalister... 
My tube amp power supply is buzzing away Help
I have a McAlister PP150S amp. My power supply appeared to have been handled roughly as the bottom panel was bent. This magnified the induction noise from the power supply when I first powered it on. I removed the panel and straightend it. Then I ... 
McAlister Audio
Hi Tlon,I got my McAlister PP-150S 75WPC push pull amp in Early October. It replaced my Rotel RB-1090 amp. The sound is warm and inviting, with absolutely no fatigue. Vocals are detailed and natural. The biggest surprise was with the bass. Deep, t...
