I have about 1000 lp's. Some close to virgin, some have lived thru the party wars of the 70's into the mid 80's. I am looking to sell either individually or as a bundle..any advice other than keeping them. We are downsizing and I also own about 34... 
What Gear Has Disappointed You?
Audio Research pre amps  
Maggie 1.7i's lack detail. Ideas?
It ain't the speakers. I have Acarian Alon 4's, Audio Research LS-16 pre amp and McCormick DNA amp..Very happy with setup..Before my father passed away, he asked me to get stereo room 2 with $$ he left, so when I listened I would think of him. Cov...

Where are the young audiophiles?
95%?? Where did you get that percentage?  Inflated. When I was 16, I saved and with my fathers help got a nice beginner stereo. His Air Force career started as a radar engineer and he loved electronics. That helped. I had much more money in my fir...

Yes...for my second dedicated stereo room, which is small, I bot Tannoy Autograph mini and a Rel t7i paired w my old, but wonderful McCormick DNA-1...very happy with this second, intimate system.

Equal $$ for Phono OR Streaming?
I recently made the decision to say goodbye to my vinyl. I have over 1000 lp’s and will keep about 75. If your friend has made the decision to go analog I have an interesting collection that will soon be sold.
