4Point9 vs. OL Conqueror vs. Vertere Super Groove HB
Moved up through many Origin Live arms to now using the Conqueror 4 and Enterprise 4 on my dual arm setup.  The Conqueror was home to my Soundsmith Paua II for a while.  Great combination.  How have the Soundsmith Hyperion MR on the Enterprise and... 
Break in for a retip?
Retip only without any work on the suspension or elastomer then no mechanical break in should be required or noted.  If it is retipped (actually rebuilt) by completely replacing all the internals like Ortofon will do then the new internals and sus... 
Small Discrepancies in Speaker Placement
One other thought is that it’s not the difference on the sidewall distance in your setup, but possibly discovering the best distance between the speakers.  If you shifted each in the same direction 1/4” away from the short measurement they would b... 
Matching Pre-amp Settings for Cartridge
I would try it at 47k ohms (recommended in the carts specifications) and try either of the capacitance (pF) settings of 330 or 220.  Capacitance is much more critical for MM cartridges as a high capacitance can cause a rise in the treble. Most MC ... 
Matching Pre-amp Settings for Cartridge
I owned this excellent cartridge in the past and even though it is a Moving Coil Cartridge with it’s 2.5mV output it performed best through my Moving Magnet input of 38db gain and 47k ohms loading.  You could overload the MC section of a preamp wi... 
Racks, equipment and footers
Don’t discount the Adona racks Mike Lavigne used for years before the change to Massif.  Bought mine a few years ago also acknowledging Mike’s choice in my mind.  No regrets.  www.adonacorporation.com  
Adona Equipment Racks
I have owned an Adona Eris 6DW rack for about 4 years.  I also love it like @roxy54 and recommend it.  I had the cherry trim added to my shelves.  At the time I purchased it I also had it custom sized slightly taller.  The interactions I had order... 
New SS integrated choice....Rotel 1572Mk2, Audiolab 7000A, Exposure 2510
Add the “Advance Paris” A10 Classic to your list to investigate.  Company has a lot of history in Europe and now in the American Market.  Listened to this amp at length at the recent Florida Audio Expo.  Price was excellent for the quality and the... 
can you help me narrow my speaker cables short list please?
Synergistic Research Foundation series is available in white.   
Looking for... Integrated tube amp with phono
The VAC is an excellent choice.  Provides the watts noted in your search, excellent sounds quality, and a phono section that performs at a very high level.    
Preamp 47K load. Cartridge needs 330 ohm
The loading is not the main issue.  The PV7 has a phono input designed for MM cartridges.  It is expecting an input voltage of 2.5mV to 5mV.  Your MC cartridge only has an output of 0.35mV.  You need a phono Step Up Transformer (SUT) that provides... 
Anti-Skat on the EAT F-Note Tonearm
Minimal outward force is needed to properly offset the skating force that exists due to the overhang of the cartridge.  Your description of the outward jump indicates one of two things (maybe three).  First is that your tracking force might not be... 
Gryphon Daiblo 300 owners with dac and phono module
I agree with @lalitk.  
Gryphon Daiblo 300 owners with dac and phono module
I use the Diablo DAC module in my 300.  I also have the phono module but have never used it since I have a stand alone phono pre that can handle my three tonearms.  The DAC module performs well.  I compared it to a couple of external DACs (Ayre QX... 
Rockport Lyras
I currently have Rockports powered by a Gryphon Diablo 300 and the only change I would consider is moving up the Rockport line. Please stop denigrating a great audio company and their products because there seems to be a dislike of a specific revi...
