UPS. Friend Or Foe?
We ship hundreds of packages a year and last year only had one "lost" but nothing ever damaged...so far lucky, I guess. BUT there's a little secret I've been told by my local UPS rep (and I'm assuming FedEx). If you insure the item for a minimum $... 
Cartridge "upgrade" to Dynavector XV1T
We originally started with a MSL Sig Gold and then tried the Sig Platinum, both outstanding cartridges. As @jperry stated the Gold is slightly warmer and in my opinion a bit more musical, the Platinum more neutral and closer to the performance on ... 
Hesitant to upgrade my phono cartridge
@paulgardner the 1st thing I'd check is the tracking force. Is it still correct? A good tracking force guage can be found on Amazon for around $35. The next is verifing VTA. Again the suspension can change over time and you might have to increase ... 
Cartridge burn-in
Regarding my own MSL Gold Signature unit, it sounded very good right out of the box but nothing really specail (as I was hoping for). After 10 hrs it started to open-up and relax but after 25+ hrs OMG it was like another animal. Now I understand w... 
What is the “World’s Best Cartridge”?
I'm still very curious if anyone has had the pleasure of listening to the MSL Gold Sig vs. Platnium Sig in the same system and can tell me the differences.  Thanks in advance  
What is the “World’s Best Cartridge”?
@pindac if you are ever in the Boston area (we are 45 minutes North in Southern NH) you are more than welcome to come over and have an extended listen.  😉   
What is the “World’s Best Cartridge”?
Over the last few years I've been using a Kuzzma CAR-50 then the Sussuro MKII and most recently a MSL Gold Sig. All have sounded wonderful BUT the MSL (after a minimum of 25 hrs) is just in another world "in my system."  The system hasn't changed,... 
Bricasti M15/25/28 owners
PS: forgot to mention that I've had the M28's in my studio and they are better than the M25 but they do take up a LOT of real-estate.  
Bricasti M15/25/28 owners
I initially started out with the M15 then when the M25 became available switched to it and have been using it as my main amplifier for several years. I listen every day to it, basically it is never shut off.  Yes we are a Bricasti dealer but even... 
Does Everyone Use 2 Phono Cables with SUT
Definitely makes a difference to use a “true” phono cable from SUT to phono pre. Also most phono interconnects come with a grounding cable, some installations may require this some may not, every situation is unique. With my own set-up my Kuzma 4P...

Analog Upgrade itch
There are basically 2 models a “Passive” model and an “Active” unit which requires a compressor that puts out 120 psi (not included).  You can buy compressors usually in any voltage required for your area.  Both Vibraplane (passive & active) ... 
Analog Upgrade itch
No never heard of them. What's their price point? The VP currently sells for $2995 for either the passive or active version (Compressor excluded) Although shipping is expensive and especially to HK where it would be almost 1/2 the price of the uni... 
Analog Upgrade itch
@eddiechanghk when you asked "I now use a IsoAcoustics DELOS solid oak platform , how do these platform differ from each other ?" I'm assuming you are asking vs a Vibraplane? Completetly different, the VP isolates down to 2.5 cycles in BOTH the ve... 
Analog Upgrade itch
A customer just pointed this tread out to me. Yes I'm a Kuzma dealer so please judge these remarks knowing this. I owned the XL 2 motor (AC motor) table with a 4Point arm for many years sitting on a Vibraplane. (Yes I'm also the world-wide distrib...
