        It was a microrendu-> BADA USB vs Aries both via to an Yggy. It was illuminating.

      The two things that really drew me to vinyl were the expense and the inconvenience. Pt 2. Try shipping tables, jeez.

        But I have doubts about this being digital v analogue.

        I've got my own rips (they call them needle-drops these days? Could never get my head around that one!) of scratchy old LPs that I play in preference to the brand-new digital-clean CD rip. Yes, they sound "better." But the source I'm listening to is still digital. ...

        I also have CDs that. to my ear, have always sounded the same as the LP. They tend to be the older ones and I wonder if mastering methods have changed. But I think that... it's all in the mastering rather than the media,

        I was talking about well mastered LPs compared to well mastered CDs, FWIW.

      You know when you go around making changes, and realize the one thing you missed makes everything work. Moving speakers is like Sanctuary.

        If you're the buyer it's pretty good. Their protection automatically favors the buyer

        Yeah - most scams involve the seller getting ripped off. The buyer protection is better. Basically beware of shady guys with no track record when selling. Buying with paypal insurance is usually ok.

        @schiit this is why if I do that thing we talked about, I'm going to avoid PP like the plague. I need to build a good fraud team and probably either do direct integration or cybersource.

      Does this mean that you have about one week to listen to Holo Spring, Campfire Vega and SFD-1?

        I think so. I passed on the SFD-1 much to my regret. All that, and work too, is just too much to do.

      Loaners collide. I just got the Holo Spring, expect the Campfire Vegas to land with the SFD-1 later today. And just got the HD-6xx in.

      So with all the table changes, the TNT is no longer dark and warm. Spring comes early this year.

        Classic platter, periphery ring, rim drive. I also changed to the Avenger motor just before then. And I have a Transfiguration Axia to put in, but I want to let everything settle before I do that. And I got a Fozgometer to measure azimuth, and a usb microscope for SRA. And ultrasonic cleaning. Whew.

        Nice. Now which of those made the darkness go away? :) I think Classic platter and ring mainly? What do you feel is gained with the rim drive?

        I think it was a combination, though the platter is bright by itself. I actually liked the 1/3 delrin /1/3 metal platter more, but i wanted to tinker with the periphery ring. The rim drive just adds pace and stability.

      Happiness is L.A. traffic during Xmas week. 47 minutes from Playa Vista to UPS Cerritos, 5 minutes before it closes. Rim Drive in the house!

      I love how music can take you to a different place. Walked into a coffee shop this morning playing Abba, I promptly went somewhere else.

      Not everything that counts can be counted, not everything that can be counted counts. Sounds like a cart upgrade fail waiting to happen.

        Maybe the Counting Count has a Counting Countess and were are missing something. In that case the Counting Count and Counting Countess count counts and countesses which results in a total count that counts. So yeah, mysogyny can be avoided.

        So what you are counting or counting on @Wfojas ?

        May your midrange clear up. A good midrange is like a KSC75 from a cheap DAP with an empty wallet...
