Re: Absolute Bargains!

At least here's a piece of history. It's still very good for early Lingo's (1, 2 and 3). But for everything else, m...

Re: Is aktiv operation best in all respects (same quality amp)?

My own very limited practical experience is that series resistors lowers the dynamic range of tweeters. I've always thought it was best with as little series resistance as possible. But I'm not (yet) a manufacturer of loudspeakers, so I really don't know what I'm talking about. Good morning Fredrik...

Re: Why do we do it?

I listened to both links, in their entirety. And they both sounded okay, but ultimately I would have to actually listen in person for any meaningful thoughts and opinions. On the first link, the salesman slammed class D power supplies, which I've heard from others as well. And he did bring up the co...

Re: Karousel

Cirkus to Karousel: Here’s my initial opinions on Cirkus change to Karousel on my Klimax LP12; done on Saturday. Had an evening of serious listening and it was obvious from the start this bearing had a lower noise floor. The lead-in groove was just inky blackness/emptiness; the Cirkus is great too ...

Re: LP 12 felt mat care

No need to change them very often. If you don't have the newest, thinner type it is worth changing as it is more musical than the older, thicker mat. But that has been out a long time, probably at least ten years, so many people already have it. Otherwise if your mat has shrunk over time to no long...

How often do people replace their felt mat? I have replaced mine once, but not sure if or when to change it again.

Re: Does a better system make you want to hear the same album less often?

We can definitely agree that the more musical your system sounds the more you want to feed it with new music. That's how it works for me, I've purchased a ton of vinyl since the arrival of my new bearing system! The tough part is finding enough space for such an increase of albums! But that's a goo...

Re: CIRKUS Vs KAROUSEL TAKE 2 (Results day is 20/08/2020 22:30 GMT)

Whether the one I marginally prefer is the Cirkus, or the Karousel, this exercise has convinced me not to trust clips! Same here, and I would never purchase any audio component based on audio clips only. Nor could I ever determine exactly how good a component was (or wasn't) based entirely on audio...

It's difficult for me as well, but Fudge is a little bit better to my ears. And it does sound louder, which might have an influence.
