Here's a weird one...
So, as usual, trying to buy something from a North American based company results in buying junk. Sad. 
Here's a weird one...
Argh!! It just did it again, but this time with the volume staying all the way down. I thought about the remote too...I don't THINK it's that but who knows... 
2-channel vs 3-channel/5channel
As much as I love my 2 channel for music, Right now I'm unable to set up the surround system for movies, and I miss it like crazy. 2 channel just doesn't cut it, esp for things like Apollo 13 etc. 
What should I do with these cartridges?
Without knowing the other 2, I'd guess the ADC is the one. I have a Mk II that still sounds great. The very first version of the XLM was the finest cartridge I ever owned. 
Is there really a need for panel speakers in 2012
Just my opinion, but the box hasn't been built that can compare to a planar. 
NAD t747 8ohms minimum- Speakers I want, 6ohms
I just bought a T747 ,assuming it would be fine with 4 ohm rears. Wrong. Back amps fried in a day.

Jarcher....I'm thinking of this table. I'd love to hear your thoughts. I tried to register at audio circle, but can't. (They say my address matches a spammer address...good gawd.) 
Traveler Vs TT15s1 vs?
Swanny...thanks for that...static never occurred to me. I'm more than happy with my cartridge...actually phono stage too, although it can be improved upon. I've never had a non-suspended table before...hope I'm not going to regret it. The one thin... 
Traveler Vs TT15s1 vs?

Swanny...what didn't you like about the Marantz? 
Subwoofer hook up
As it turns out, it doesn't matter anyway. After setting up the Maggies, there is more than enough wonderful, musical bass. As a previous Maggie owner, I should have known this, but feared that the smaller MG12 would be deficient. It isn't!! So...... 
Subwoofer hook up
Thanks Drew. 
Subwoofer hook up
Thanks, but no one has answered the question. WILL the xover setting on the sub filter the low frequencies going to the Maggies IF I wire them as described? 
Any Emerald Physics owners in Pittsburgh?
Thanks Todd. I may take you up on that. Either way, it's nice to meet a fellow Burgher that's into audio!
