Humminguru record cleaner
@muzikat I thought the HG was pretty much a hit the button and go operation as well?  
Finally...subwoofer that's aesthetically pleasing!
Not to be "that guy". I'm just wondering the actual component and labor cost. I cannot believe its only a 40% markup  
Help me pick some new or used speaker cables
You cannot go wrong    
The $10,000 Question
@jimmyblues1959 I second Quicksilver audio.   
Higher-End Class A/B vs. Class A Integrateds
I have the Class A Luxman -595ase and I love it it. Paired with my ZU Omen Defs, the amp will run you out of the room with loud, super clear volume. I’ve never heard a home amp so clear at loud volumes..   One good thing about most higher qualit...

I'm willing to bet HG will offer up another level up for more money eventually.  
Just compared Monster M2.2 and ZU Mission speaker cables
After a month the Monster 2.2's sound AMAZING. I do believe cables actually need "re-broken in" if stored away for years. I feel the cables, although sounded great when I first hooked them up, has "smoothed" out a bit. Now, I'm not saying the 2.2'...

I’m no cartridge expert.... Is it even possible to build a MC cartridge with a removable stylus like MM’s? I’m guessing not or there would be plenty out there. I recentlu learned that early Ortofon Concordes were MC. Who knew  
Does a turntable mat make any difference?
So my question, If one buys an aftermarket mat and you have the same amount of "sound" coming from the playing surface with volume down, then you really are not gaining anything? I can hear the record playing slightly having my ear near the headsh... 
Moving Magnet Phono Cartridges
The 540 is a fantastic cartridge. Probably the best value out there. Plus, you can just replace the stylus. Enjoy your new 540  
Heritage Cornwall Iv's vs ZU Audio Omen Defs
Thanks for the info  
Heritage Cornwall Iv's vs ZU Audio Omen Defs
The Cornwalls sound natural and alanced..not like a PA speaker (due to horns) correct?   
Speakers 10 years old or older that can compete with todays best,
I’m guessing most 10 year old speakers vs a current model of the same speaker is probably less about technology improvement and more about slight "sound " changes depending on the speaker engineer handing the model at a given time. Just like any o...
