  2. Rega rp8 cartridge advice

    Plenty use the 10X5. The spacers are an easy DIY job, too! It doesn't mean you can't use it, just that it's not going to be at its best. I use an Ortofon 2M Black that I'm very happy with. I've tried it with and without various height spacers and it's more of a flavour thing. Detail vs balance. Go too far and it can get woeful! I've also heard the other Ortofon 2M series carts, the Apheta 2 (MAGIC) and Nagaoka. All terrific options, depending on the sound you want. I went 2M Black because I needed to stick with MM at home. I'm very happy. It's a gun 'table. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. What Phono amp to buy

    I agree with Keith re tweaking the sound with your cartridge. I've ended up with an Ortofon 2M Black, but carts from Hana and Nagaoka were warmer and downright gorgeous, and one from Clearaudio was lighter and hyper detailed. So much choice is a wonderful thing! Choose what makes you happy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. PMC Speaker owners thread

    I've heard the entire range a few times and for me the standouts of the range are the .22 and .26 in terms of balance. The .23 was warmer than the .22 but it had nowhere near the detail and openness. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Best MC Cart under $1000 ?

    Sounds like a terrific combo, congrats! Now you're going to get into upgrading the rest of your system to match it! [emoji389][emoji389][emoji389][emoji389][emoji389][emoji389][emoji389] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. It's been my experience that even mint condition gear doesn't get sold for very much, as if being previously owned, even only for a year, somehow makes them undesirable. I suppose people are after a bargain and won't settle for less. I set a price I needed to cover my next purchase and also took into account condition and availability. I was actively trolled by three members over the price. One told me I was an "idiot" and to "get in touch when you come to your senses, and I'll give you a quarter of what you're asking". So, I sold them for $100 less than advertised. Didn't hear back from the trollers... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. RIAA accuracy and its audibility.

    I'd strongly recommend to visit Graham Slee's website and read what he has to say about equalising the record vs equalising the cartridge. www.hifisystemcomponents.com His is an engineering perspective and he's been very open about his thinking. Give it a read and see what you think. Cheers, Mick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
