    Advice from the tube buffs please

    Why don't you roll the rectifiers you have and learn about the differences each makes (or not)? No amount of internet opinion will beat listening in your own setup.

    Giving vinyl one more try

    Overhang is fundamental to cart setup. If you aren't confident to do this, I think you should see if someone on SNA can come and check your setup for you.
  3. What a great find. That's an idler drive turntable isn't it.

    Too many records?

    You are not allowing for the possibility that tastes change. I have quite a few albums that I bought years ago, that no longer do it for me.
  5. There are some pretty cheap flights to Singapore at the moment. Lots of gear there to demo I hear. If you're contemplating spending 14 grand, it's justifiable I reckon.

    SUT Upgrade

    They appear, from what I can gather, to be the American outlet for Hashimoto products. Anyway, it's a pretty basic website by today's standards.

    SUT Upgrade

    This is the website I was talking about... www.soundtradition.com ...and yes, they do say that the HM-7 uses OFC copper windings. Their preference for valve amplification (and analogue) is also clearly stated.

    SUT Upgrade

    Fair enough and well said.

    Has anyone here heard both the 7s and the 3s?

    SUT Upgrade

    Just based on the website.

    SUT Upgrade

    I would think the Hashimotos are designed for valve (esp. SET) amplification.

    SUT Upgrade

    Oh, OK. I must say that really surprises me. I always imagined the HM-7s would be copper wound. I'm pretty sure that I'd not like them either then, as steely hard is the exact opposite of the kind of sound I like. I have never heard of the HMX before. Do you know what the HM-3 windings are made of?

    @Red MacKay but you could build or buy a SUT with HM-7 trannies, using copper wire; maybe that would be more to your liking.

    I'll bet that sound tradition SUT sounds great. Those HM-7 transformers are supposed to be the bees knees. I'd like to get hold of a pair myself. The website is awful. They don't make things easy; I'm not sure if the business even still operates. It would be interesting to compare an HM-3 SUT with this one, but they are a bit like hen's teeth. Well done on your score.
