  2. Someone once told me that the mechanism in the cartridge i.e. where the end of the stylus is placed near the magnets in the cartridge, needs to be 'loosen' for better sideway and up down movements of the stylus. The increase flexibility will improve tracking and should therefore improve detail retrieval and hence better sound. This can only be achieved after 20 to 30 hours of running the cartridge. The preamp probably requires a bit of 'burn-in' too. I keep my StudioPho on all the time.
  3. I had a Cayin A88T Mk2 with the original Cayin tubes when I decided to roll them with 4 Gold Lion KT88. I preffered the Gold Lion in that and to my ears, they were not as 'harsh' sounding as the Shuguang. They were overall smoother sounding tubes than those the came with the amp.
  4. I have personally owned a set of these about twelve years ago, which was purchased through Dr Lin the distributor in Australia. It was connected to a pair of Dynaudio 1.3SE. I was running a Stello transport and DAC then with Jungson XLR interconnects. I loved the sound. It had no problem running the Dyns to ear piercing levels without distortion. The sound was 'full' and incredibly smooth and tonally rich almost valve amp like. I owned it for about one and half years when it developed some intermittent 'scratching' noise form the left channel. Sent them back for repairs and they could not replicate so decided to sell them. I am sure quality has since improved. The only few cons I find are: heat from the power amp, electricity consumption (light dims for a millisecond when i switch on the power amp) and rather old fashion or classic looking units (not as modern as the current version). The original Jungson owner and designer died in a car crash probably about ten years ago so not sure if they still retain the same signature sound. All I can say is they sound pretty good to my ears.
  5. I am a bit fussy and tend to look at each secondhand records closely that I am about to purchase i.e. with the sellers permission, take them out of their sleeves. Even then, it is difficult to see some of the micro scratches. I tend to stay away from records that have been popular in the past because they tend to be badly treated perhaps due to their high usage. I have picked up a few rare gems from private owners and SH record sellers. I always find Jazz LPs in better condition SH than rock or popular LPs. My max per record is $15 but have paid $40 for an LP due to its rarity and excellent condition.
  6. Some very serious cables and great prices all round. GLWTS.
  7. Just out of curiosity, are you upgrading to the '3'?
  8. An absolute bargain at this price for a brand new unit and with Australian voltage. GLWTS.

Previously, three of them used to sit under my amp but bought the 4th recently to use with the CD transport. Frankly, it sounded better with 4 rather than 3 of these under the transport. RRP with postage was around $50 plus postage from Decibel Hifi.
