Audio Technica AT ML-180 Cartridge Advice
This is an old post, but I thought I’d post my MM experience here. In the past three months I bought two MM cartridges, after reading among things the very long MM post here  on Audiogon. I first received an Nagaoka MP-500. It was a revelation. It... 
what is your configuration for the LFT-8c/LFT-VIIIc?
There is a 0.6ms delay between woofer and midrange that should be factory set. My speakers wasn’t set, so be sure to do so.    There is a few threads on Audiokarma that is on the 8C’s with quite a lot of good  information.   
what is your configuration for the LFT-8c/LFT-VIIIc?
Phono + CDP > Preamp > Sub woofer >  Mono amps >  LFT midrange + tweeter panels  
As he promised, Guttenberg reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8c.
@ricevs Could you elaborate on upgrading parts for the lft-8? You must have posted details elsewhere, I just felt at the time that it was beyond my ability to DIY. But I may indeed look into swapping upgraded parts. Thanks!

Oh, and @bdp24 turned me on to the ET’s several years ago. He had championed the speakers for many years. And I have followed him for a while now, so to have someone insinuate that there is a financial arrangement between him and Bruce is quite la...

I , too, have re-read the review and there are some observations by the reviewer that would merit further comment. I have a room that is as deep as the reviewer at 30 ft, however, considerably narrower at 10 ft wide. The speakers are 7 1/2 ft from...

There is another positive review of the LFT-8c’s by Jules Coleman on the March issue of Enjoy the Music.com. Coleman’ picked up the review speakers directly from Guttenberg’s loft!  it’s a long review primarily on his listening impressions and les... 
question for Eminent Technology lft-8c and panel speaker owners
ET LFT-8b owner here for four years and I upgraded to 8c last November. Planar  dipoles need room to breathe. I have them 7 ft away from front wall. If you haven't already, move the Maggies out into the room. If the 'detail lost ' still persists, ... 
Steve Guttenberg finally reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8b loudspeaker.
@harpo75 I concur that placement is super important with the 8b's. I never got to your level of perfection in terms of placement. I had them out 76 in. from front wall with quite a lot of toe in. And I was never quite satisfied with the soundstage... 
Steve Guttenberg finally reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8b loudspeaker.
@iansr There are plenty of used LFT-8b's for sale now, no need to wait! Also, there are a few threads over at Audiokarma on the ET LFT-8c's with actual user experiences which are very informative: https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/... 
Steve Guttenberg finally reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8b loudspeaker.
@tonnesen I think the correct cabling in an integrated amp is: CDP line in to integrated amp; integrated line out to 8c woofer: and then speaker cable from integrated to 8c panel. You will be saving a set of cables from woofer to amp. I am using t... 
As he promised, Guttenberg reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8c.
While Guttenberg's reviews of 8b and 8c are both positive, I feel he did not review the  8c quite as it was intended. He dismissed the DSP function of the speaker, saying it did not sound as good. However, the DSP is an integral part of the 8c. Th... 
Review: Wadia S7i ( an extreme upgrade ) CD Player
@jafant I still enjoying  a Wadia 16 from the 90's. It is probably two generations prior to the S7i. Sevral years ago, I was thinking of upgrading to a better DAC. However, in the $4000-$5000 range of modern day DACs, the Wadia 16 held its own. I... 
Trans-Fi Terminator Tonearm: 2019 Update
@pindac Thanks for the reply. I had an accessary sent from Russia to me in 2022 and it took two months through its postal service. With the War on, I did not expect a reply from Andrey.  Anyone has an unused carbon fiber wand for sale ?  
OK, who is buying one?
I think the 'rounded corners' description refers to the top plate of the plinth. The actual corners of the plinth are still squared. The fact that a 'cosmetic' change with rounded corners on the top plate of a plinth  can generate even a whisper ...
