Mark Levinson No.26 Balanced Input Question
No. 26 was only available with either the balanced input or the phono input boards, not both. So, if yours has the phono board it does not have the balanced, even if it has the input jacks.Cheers,Wes 
Song With Best Beginning

Zoethecus cones
Hey Lostbears, I'm going to give Skreich the first option on the cones since it's his thread but yes I do also have the z-slab. It's the square one 18 3/4 x 18 3/4. It did sustain some minor shipping damage (a couple of scratches on top, what look...

Cartridge for a vintage Sansui table/arm
Thanks guys. I picked the table up locally so I could spin some vinyl on a second system. It wasn't expensive and is in really unbelievable condition, at least cosmetically. I'll look into the Shure as it sure is in my budget :)Cheers,Wes

Led Zep 45th Anniversary Shows at O2 in 2012
I know nothing of the Zep shows you speak of but they sound very cool! I do have to say that I enjoy your posts here more than most. I misread your user name the first time I saw it as “ Bong of Fury” and ever since I have some sort of anthropomor... 
Anybody heard or use the CAT Renaissance?
Gotcha, easy to mistake the two. Thanks also for correcting my errors in spelling and grammar, I’m stuck in a waiting room using my phone.

Drilling holes into the Michell Orbe SE subchasis?
I took a quick look at my Gyro SE this morning and I'm assuming you plan on using a second Michell armboard in the spot where the motor is located. Moving the motor outside the "ear" shouldn't be a problem however there is another issue you might ...
