THE TUBES ARE PERFECTLY FINE...

5 Stars
Posted by Cris Yarborough

I don't know why people are complaining about the life of the tubes. I bought my 16.5 back in 2006 and still have the same tubes (I bought a total of 4 initially. I have changed the felt on them but they tubes have never broken or failed in any way. I rinse the tubes after each cleaning. If the record is a dirty thrift store find, I use a two tube method. One for initial debris, mold etc removal with a green dishwashing soap and distilled water mix. Next I use a different tube with Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Cleaner. Then a distilled water rinse. I can't imagine how people are breaking their tubes. Here is a YouTube video of what I do:

Questyle Audio - QP2R Digital Audio Player Product No: E QP2RG

Substantial Upgrade over the QP1R

5 Stars
Posted by Tom G

I've had the QP1R for about a year and liked the sound quality but was often a bit frustrated with the scroll wheel performance.

This week I finally received my new QP2R and I must say that it is a really nice improvement over the prior model. The sound quality is definitely improved, it boots a little more quickly, and the new scroll wheel is MUCH better than before. The new model is much easier to use than its predecessor and also sounds better. It's quite obvious that the new model's amplifier has more - and cleaner - power.

The QP2R does everything that the 1st gen player did, but it's easier to use and really does sound quite a bit better. Absolutely worth the upgrade.


Klipsch - Forte III Distressed Product No: K ForteIII C
Available: SpecialOrder
Category: Speakers
Label: Equipment

Fortissimo!

5 Stars
Posted by Frédéric

Forte III are brilliant speakers. They are neither harsh nor fatiguing speakers at all but rather detailed and revealing. Soudstage is really deep and air is around all instruments. Radiohead sound generally blurred on most loudspeakers. With FIII you understand the intention of the studio mixing and forget the compressed sound of their records. With Charles Dutoit directing Camille St-Saens "danse macabre", the 99 dB/w/m creates a great dynamic range and impact. Dave Brubeck -Take five- is played with a great authority. Melanie Di Biasio vocal is mesmerizing...Kei Koito performing Ciacona in D minor at Pfarrkirche St. Katharina produces sub bass shaking my room. Should I write a con? Ok, just one, Miles Davis trumpet has not the last word on FIII. You could miss the silky texture of more "fat" speakers.

It really is worth it!

If you love vinyl you probably have an investment in equipment and music. I tried a few different products Spin Clean $125 very manual and you find yourself cleaning a few at a time just because of the production involved. Then putting off cleaning because it is a production. Then $1000 for the VPI Cyclone, it did a excellent job cleaning but static was a very real problem. I bit the bullet and bought the ADS. Having 40 year old vinyl without a pop is priceless. Part of that is the care given to the record over the years. New albums need the residue cleaned as well and it is simple. I will say that when you clean records less than 180g, drops of water are left on the record due to the wipers not fully contacting the surface. Soft, clean dry rage to wipe off and your good. I am continually amazed at how good my records sound now. I consider the ADS an integral part of listening to vinyl.

Ortofon - MC Cadenza Bronze Low Output Cartridge Product No: T CAD BRZ
Available: InStock
Category: Low Output Cartridges
Label: Equipment

Crystal clear detail.

5 Stars
Posted by NJ Jason

I have had this cart for about a month now and I have been breaking it in. It's a crystal clear cart with very detailed sound. Acoustic pieces sound amazing (especially acoustic guitars) and vocals sound like the singer is in the room with you. I was just listening to Johnny Cash American I tonight and it was like Johnny Cash was sitting in my music room. Keep in mind, you can't just throw this on any table. You need to have a table up to the task. I am using a VPI Prime and it seems like a good match to me. I'm also using KEF LS50's and an old McIntosh MC2300. I could not ask for better sound that I am hearing here.

Effortless sound, tames the sharpest sibilance without losing detail

5 Stars
Posted by Bruce K.

Effortless sound, tames the sharpest sibilance without losing detail. Somehow, it can read right through surface noise without losing high end extension and detail. With unlimited rebuild-ability and top notch customer service from SoundSmith, you'd be silly not to consider this.

Lyra - Delos Product No: T LYRA DELOS
Available: InStock
Category: Low Output Cartridges
Label: Equipment

Seems analytical, and a bit overpriced, but fast and highly detailed.

4 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

This cartridge sounds good, but seems quite analytical to me, the soundstage left ro right is quite good, but depth isn't one of its strengths. Also, it is very hard to properly set-up (even with alignment tools, test LP and oscilloscope). Very fussy about tracking force too. I found that 2.1 grams works much better than the recommended 1.75. A bit overpriced. If you're looking for of a more lush option, consider something like the ZYX R100.If you're looking for fast and highly detailed, this might be a good option.

Best I've heard

5 Stars
Posted by Bill Donohue

I have an SME V tonearm. I read their phono cable wasn't that good so I tried out a few of the high-priced models from a dealer on a loaner basis. I then tried this one. This is the BEST by far. I love the Ortofon carts anyway, but never expected a cable from them this good. Don't let the low price fool you. This is a high-end cable.

Thanks SME and Acoustic Sounds for a great turntable. The workmanship is precise and beautiful. The table is silent in operation, and creates a silky black background and strong dynamics. Very pleased.

Great Product !

Posted by Stevie D

This could very well be the greatest bargain in the history of high-end audio! Not only an unbelievably great value, but a true high-end product.

Product was plug-and-play with my Windows 7 Pro PC. Makes my high-res files sound great, and provides superior sonics on streamed audio (highly recommend internet feeds from WWOZ in New Orleans, KPLU (jazz) in Seattle, and KSDS (jazz and blues) in San Diego.

Clear and Clean

Posted by Whitehall

I'm delighted with my all-Sony rig. I've the little hi-res hard drive player, the hi-res HAP-S1, driving the SS-HA1s in my modest apartment. The 35 wpc amp in the player is well-mated to these speakers - Sony knew what they were doing in creating them one for the other. I also picked up a used Sony ST-SA5ES as a tuner.

The sound quality for the player/speaker set is crisp and clean. I've never sensed it was lean or over-analytical, but full and complete and accurate. I think the super tweeters help with that.

I'm a long-time fan of the hi-end Sony house sound. and this set seems a more refined version although not quite as "full and strong" as perhaps the classic receivers like the STR-6060fw or STR-6200f,

One note - the bodies are NOT made of aluminum but they are CLAD in sheet metal. They do give a decent knuckle rap test but sound like a good, solid MDF design.

I call them great value speakers.

I use Grado Rs1's Headphones that are a perfect match at 32ohm's. I thought everything was great but WOW. This Drangonfly USB DAC (Red) has warmth I never thought possible. I am listening to my digital collection like it was the first time.

Exceeded my expectations

5 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

Stelly, Wanted to express my deep appreciation for the advice on the Hana MC – it exceeded my expectations and you’re right – it reveals micro-dynamics and subtle details the Eroica couldn’t touch. With careful set-up, this cart is a giant-killer and would be a good deal at 1K! Again, many thanks for steering me to a cartridge I would have otherwise overlooked completely. I will be seeking you out when it’s time to upgrade the turntable! - TH “audiofan”

Logical segue...

5 Stars
Posted by Carlos Bauza

This would have been the logical progression of the 3009 series, in absence of the 300 series. It is delightfully beautiful and impressively solid. It has been a perfect vehicle for Denon DL-S1, Stanton 881S, Sumiko Blue Point 2, Grado Statement 1, Stanton 500 EE II. Perfect tracking for all, neutral sound, solid-ample-consistent staging, and perfect cueing. Easy to set up and adjust but Model 309 is easier still. A substantial tonearm with virtually perfect sound and tracking but slightly less comfortable to adjust than SME Series 300.
