|Recording quality by decade|
In the early days of stereo, engineers were unsure what to do with the extra speaker. Sgt. Pepper was recorded on a 4 track machine. By the 70's, 16 and 24 track recorders were everywhere, and solid-state electronics had finally reached a level of...
|Tube mixing for Preamps|
The Bugle Boys should be very nice. Try any combination you like, but I would do any changes in pairs- swap the first tube in both channels with 2 of the Telefunkens or Amperex, so whatever tube you use in one channel you are using the same tube i...
|Help Need Recommendation on Amp Configuration|
I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the 2230. I drove Dahlquist DQ-10's with mine and I think they are 89 db efficient. You don't say how big the room is - my room at that time was about 12x 14 and it would get plenty loud.
|Mitsubishi DA-M10 Power Meters|
Probably because there are a bunch of people that have them with bad meters and they're justifying the cost of the meters by weighing it against replacing the amp entirely. And/ or: people who need one meter are buying two so they have a spare in ...
|Possibly controversial: Totem arro overrated?|
I'm thinking placement is a good part of it as Milpai mentioned. I have Dynaudio - similar size to the Arro and they image like crazy with a powerful amp and very little toe-in. That said, imaging is one forte' of planar speakers in general- the M...
|Help needed finded some connectors|
A $400 dollar quote to fix the cable end is B.S. This is where High-end audio makes a bad name for itself. I'll do it for $30 bucks and it will be perfect. Some peoples kids just enjoy raping the hell out of other people's wallets.

|Marantz 2325 Buzzzzzz|
If you haven't had the unit recapped, this is likely a warning shot. The electrolytic capacitors in any electronics that are this old have reached the end of their useful life. Time to put some money / time into it or give/ sell it to someone who ...
|creative suggestion needed|
If you have a model/hobby shop nearby you can get water-slide decal stock in 8 1/2 X 11 sheets. A hi-res photo of the good glass and you should be able to make a decal. I used to make my own decals by running it thru my computer printer.
|No love. Why?|
I suspect that it's because they aren't exciting visually and they fall into a price point where they're below the radar for many . I had a pair of the Monitor 7 se mkii and I thought they were very good speakers. Ultimately they left the stable b...
|Kenwood L-09M Service Manual?|
Check Vinylengine or Hifi enfine on the web for free service/owners manuals. You'll need to register but both sites are valuable resources. (No affiliation)
|What current speakers to use with Marantz 2230?|
Used Vandersteen 1c if you can find some. In a small to medium sized room the 2230 has plenty of guts to push them.
|Marantz 2230 vs Marantz 2230B ?|
I like the 2230 better- the (b) model had the whole amp on 1 circuit board if I remember correctly, and seemed a tad less structurally sound. The (b) model also had a plastic escutcheon on the source selector switch which I've seen two go bad afte...
|New tube problems - need help|
Sometimes a grid resistor will fail when a tube goes. Also it's a good idea to replace the phase inverter tube when doing the power tubes (if your amp has one, that is)
|Who is Most Beautiful female singer ever|
Sarah Mclaughlin for me, thanks.
