Review: Denon DL 103R Cartridge
Probably the FR64 would be the best.

Thank you Bob, for your comments.Much appreciated.

Rooze, good question.Basically it pertains to the thermodynamic laws, which state first that energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can only be transferred; and secondly that energy will seek the ground state via the path of least resistance. ...

El, to answer your question about what makes Audiopoints better, here are some explanations.The material and geometrical shape of the Audiopoints make the difference, based upon what we want to achieve.Audiopoints do not "drain", nor do they "damp... 
Lugnut needs your advice on small speakers
This sounds to me like a perfect excuse to build a set of Voigt Pipes.Fostex drivers, and DIY construction will fit the budget.Lowther drivers, and DIY construction will push the budget up some, but will sound like $10k speakers.Crossoverless, act...

So my wife says to me this morning
I think that the Scout has a better drive system, but the Rega arm is a better match for the DL103.For Cableplex, if you want that system to really sound good with that cartridge, take 5 minutes to do the HiFi mod to the tonearm for about $2, and ... 
How do you deal with vibration?
I've decided that everything is imagined, even that I'm imagining.So therefore, since everything in "reality" is imagined, it matters not whether we are imagining it or not, because everything we know is imagined. Even double-blind testing is no a...

Cain Abby vs Reference 3a De Capo i
I've been reading alot of posts where people like to pair a supertweeter with the Fostex drivers.In my opinion, it would be money better spent to step up to the Lowther drivers, which extend to 22kHz by themselves and need no supertweeter.I've use...
