Leave tube amps always on?
Two years ago I asked Kevin Deal, Upscale Audio at the RMAF show (Denver) should you leave an integrated amp on 24/7 or only when needed.  His expression and definitive answer was "Only on when you use it!"All my integrated amp's tubes still sound... 
Does anyone have experience with seller Kron on cartridges?
I bought an Ortofon Quintet Black from Vincent about a month ago.  It is my first purchase with him so I used PayPal for the peace of mind. etc.  It was a very smooth transaction, prompt communications, fast shipment and I saved a third off the ty...

PS Sorry I cannot post pictures of my VPI Classic 3 turntable with the upgrade to the 12" 3D tonearm as Audiogon does not allow photos.  C;est la vie!  :-( 
How do you install a 12" VPI armboard for 12" Unipivot on a VPI Classic 3 - Thanks :-)
Good point indeed.  The platter appeared to spin correctly, and there was no audible impact, despite the spindle's condition.  My guess is it happened the first time I re-greased the spindle.  When replacing the platter I hit the spindle a bit, ra... 
How do you install a 12" VPI armboard for 12" Unipivot on a VPI Classic 3 - Thanks :-)
The easy answer was to send the turntable to VPI who were just great, The VPI Tech moved the current arm base and installed a new black arm board under it to attach it and cover over the old 10" arm base holes.  I had checked beforehand that they ...

What Would You Do with a Sealed, 1st Press Miles Davis "Kind of Blue"?

What Would You Do with a Sealed, 1st Press Miles Davis "Kind of Blue"?
Thank you very much to all for your insights, comments and information.  I am inclined to open, play and keep this sealed early pressing, but am in no rush... surely there is a good, humorous medical or psychological term for such keeping of seale...

What Would You Do with a Sealed, 1st Press Miles Davis "Kind of Blue"?
To clarify, the LP is in a sealed, clear, all plastic inner sleeve.  There are no openings, tears, nicks, cuts or similar. Both sides the record are completely visible.  All the tracks and the labels look unmarked (bar the tiny mould spot).   Than...
