Eminent Technology Et-2 From Scratch
I have a VPI classic with the ET-2 arm. There has been a lot of mods done to the table and I believe it sounds fantastic. I use the hi pressure manifold with a Jun-air compressor. There is a ET-2 thread in the forum here that is a thousand pages l...

Cable Break In for the Naysayers
Speaker cables will breakin using a high current amp. I/C  will never breakin with the amount of current produced from a CD player or preamp. I use a old pioneer receiver and connect RCA or XLR to the speaker terminals. I then use a 20 watt sandba... 
What's the benefit of balanced tonearm cables?
Where I live there is a 50,000 watt radio station a few miles away. I used to get the station through my phono until I went fully balanced. Balanced is better..  
Magnepan 1.7i Wavy, Wrinkled Mylar Diaphragm/Aluminum Ribbon
I had this on a pair I bought used. They would buzz on very low bass. I took the socks off and put a couple layers of high quality packing tape on the defect which was about 6 inches long. They have been fine for at least 5 years now.  If they ar... 
Would used Shunyata Anaconda CX power cables still be a good choice at right price?
They can always counter offer. You never know if you don't ask.   
Would used Shunyata Anaconda CX power cables still be a good choice at right price?
I have been very happy with everything from Shunyata. I have power cables, I/C, and a Denali. Sorry, I cannot comment on the exact cable you are interested in.  
Would used Shunyata Anaconda CX power cables still be a good choice at right price?
Is this for an amp, pre amp, or digital? I have been using Shunyata Research Alpha HC for my mono block amps and like them very much. The Anaconda is from the same time period if I am not mistaken. You can always call Richard at Shunyata, he is aw... 
How does the VPI Aries II stand up to current mid priced tables?
Mount an ET 2.0 arm on that table with Stillpoints and Sota's total Eclipse.   
Perfect Vinyl Forever
I was an early adopter of Paul Frumkin's enzyme cleaning formula way back in the early 2000s? I used my VPI 16.5 RCM with his product with great results. Moving forward to a couple years ago I was gifted a US tank and spinner. My friend had purcha... 
Vinyl static ionizers who's used them?
1) Here: So now I’m wondering why I need the Acaia or a Destat III or etc. 2)I can play an LP that has zero on the meter and after the side is done, the reading is way up. I don't remember the exact numbers. 3) I find that every time I play an l... 
Vinyl static ionizers who's used them?
Play the LP and test for static again. The Destat is only good for about the 1st 5 minutes of the record and then it gets charged again.  
Vinyl static ionizers who's used them?
Did anyone else buy the Acaia ion gadget? Mine is being shipped.   
40khz vs 120khz or 40 plus 120khz US cleaning?
My VPI 16.5 gave out. I removed all the parts and made a new box out of 7 layer plywood. The old particle board started to disintegrate and it was leaking. I should be back up and running this weekend.  
40khz vs 120khz or 40 plus 120khz US cleaning?
I was using a capful of the Triton.  The Audio Intelligent by itself does not work anywhere near as good as Audio Intelligent plus ultrasonic.
