Flux Hi Fi stylus cleanrer
Doug I picked up this gizmo from the Adelphi, Singapore over 2 years back. Easily the best stylus cleaner I have encountered. The liquid refill is a wee bit expensive . Have concocted a home grown version with the help of a audiophile/chemist frie... 
Lyra Etna SL vs. Transfiguration Proteus + Koetsu Urushi
I have owned the Orpheus L, a brilliant cart and I preferred it to the Proteus that I had in my system for a brief while. In the context of my system and my musical priorities, the Etna SL is not only the best cart that I have owned but has few, i... 
Isolation Feet for Garrard 301 wood plinth
Glen congrats on a really nice system. Love the plinth of your 401. I never got good results from granite in my system. There was a time I had my TT resting on a granite top. Had to abandon it . Too much ringing. Just something to ponder ...Pradeep 
What Audio Research preamp would be an upgrade to my LS2B
Bobbyi had a LS2B as one of my first serious preamps. The upgrade to a ARC SP 16 was a huge jump. The LS2B was a bit dark and rolled off compared to the SP16. Honestly, the LS2B is a dated design with its single bottle that any upgrade will yield ... 
Wavac Audio amps
InnaTBH a demo of the top of the range Wavacs is rare but not impossible. I spent nearly a year researching the Wavacs, comparing notes with owners but bought without an actual demo. I am not disappointed. With  150wpc SET class A, they work super... 
Cable between SUT and phono pre?
Some SUTs come hard wired with a cable eg Lyra Erodion, Kondo Slz. The shorter the cable the better. I was using a 60cm Lyra Phonopipe with impressive results

Help! Best amp for Rockport Aviors?

Durand Kairos vs Reed 3P : listening impressions
Thank you for all your responses.A quick update. I snagged a barely used Durand Kairos. I now have 2 arms on my TW AC, a Durand Talea2 with a Ortofon A95 and a Durand Kairos with a Lyra Atlas. I am getting superior results with the Atlas on the Ka... 
Miyajima Zero hum?
I sold my Miyajima BE mono because of the hum. Switched to a more expensive Lyra Kleos mono and the hum has gone. The Lyra has a different coil configuration that sums the signal in the cart(I think !).  
Lyra Atlas experiences
Hi OysteinLike your self I have been a Lyra fan. I currently own the Atlas, Etna and mono Kleos. A quick question why do you think you are getting sub optimal results with your Atlas ? Have you heard it sound different/better to your ears in anoth...

Many thanks folkfreak. I think you are preaching to the converted. I love the Talea2 which replaced a Triplanar Mk7. Completely agree that the Durand is several notches above the Triplanar.i am hoping to snag a demo Kairos.Would love to audition t...
