Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Re: A tracking weight experiment for LP12 owners

I was working again with my tonearm as I wanted to check if the bearings are o.k. What I did was balancing it to 0/floating with no tracking force. Than I used faint blowing from the side to see if it gets stuck somewhere. Movement was easy and seemed completely free. So I thought I should use a ver...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

for me the second one sounded more forward and offensive - that made me also prefer the first one more Its good that there is also a feedback if none of the clips sound right because that might save one or the other to start a wrong path. for the power supplies: did you checked both Netgear and Friw...

Re: Links on the back of speakers

the treble should see the length most close to the 2.48m than go further to middle and bass

best is to not interrupt the cable

that usually makes an awkward shape of the wiring as the treble network is usually most upwards on the loudspeaker

... at least thats how Fredrik was soldering my cables

Re: Linn LP12 Belts

I have one of the old belts and and with my one its really difficult to see the difference between the rough and the more smooth side because the more rough side is already really smooth. I had to go in real sunlight to see which side was more smooth. To my surprise it sounded more musical to me whe...

thank you for all your comments. Yes one really needs to experience source first and never forget it. Yes Tom I also learned that you really need to have a structured approach.

Re: Oscar's system and first world problems

the question is really what you want to achieve. If your goal is to make digital as good as your analog than I am with Thomas ... thats going to be a challenge and expensive. I would rather spend the money into upgrading analog. All in all the most value for the money (if you really want to improve ...

did you use the Friwo with the right polarity at the plug which goes into the GS? I think the behavior you describe is when you used the plug in the wrong way

Re: Musical NAS Drives

you for sure have tested it but are you really sure to put the Melco and the GS108 at different power rails sounds better?
do you use ethernet cables shorter than 1.2meters?
