        Are you speaking of the 5k? I've had one for about a year. Not much chatter around here about it.

        Yes recently received the 5k. Without EQ it’s sonics are solid, nothing outstanding. It’s slightly warm and meaty. With EQ, particularly autoEQ functionality, it is utterly fantastic.

      Interesting new vinyl flattener called recordpi. Similar to vinyl flat but with an app and temp controller. Recordpi.com

        Interesting! I never got vinyl flat to really be effective. And heat always ended up adding noise to the surface. Maybe this one will be better?!

        This is $300, surely some local store offers a flattening service on a per record rate that would be cheaper than this? How many people have so many badly warped records that this becomes a good deal?

        I've been getting emails from Spectrum for over a year. Someone has incorrectly configured my email with them, we don't even have Spectrum in Canada. I click the unsubscribe link every time I see one, but it clearly does not do anything. Fortunately they mostly go to my spam box now.

        I dunno why you guys bother sorting into *26 completely unrelated categories. I sort into three groups 1) good albums, 2) albums with one good song, and 3) all the rest. (sometimes the forth is "I don't remember")

        Steward: "Oh yes, I'm glad you asked, but yes, former president Bush was indeed a fan of Venetian Snares and Aphex Twin, as evidenced by his large collection of vinyl LPs all impeccably signed on both the gatefold and the sleeve, as you can clearly see here."

        Another answer to the op is: those who were generous (and brave) enough to lend them to friends. Or, at least, take then on house visits.

        People on the buses, albums under their arm... long-lost sights of the past. It was a better world back then!

        HOT! :-) We just did like @atomicbob and stepped up to a heat pump - we did ductless mini splits in our upstairs rooms. Super quiet, really efficient, cools everything far better than our central system ever did.

        I run AC+shirtless, less $ and CO2!

        Looked up "mini split", that's the default in Asia where walls and floors are concrete and we only cool rooms in use.

        It's the default here in India for domestic, because it is only expensive. Centralised systems, usually for commercial use, are industrial-strength and priced accordingly.

      Moondrop did another run of the matte finish Kato, so I couldn’t help myself. These look way better than the shiny chrome.

        Definitely more separation. It’s bigger sounding than the Concorde with Fritz Geiger stylus. While slightly brighter it’s less hard sounding. That’s all for now.

        Are you blind? ;) Honestly the A80J is very bright in my apartment. Unless you have lights up the butt in your living room, I'm not convinced the upgrade is worth it IMO.

        The Sony panels are beautiful as is their usability. I've had 3 Samsung sets and each of them has been disappointing/had issues + they force you into their "ecosystem" which suuucks. HDR gamut is nice but, as a film pro, anything over a couple hundred nits makes me want to gouge my eyes out. Maybe that's just me, though :-)
