Schematic for Aronov SA 60/ 960
Good luck. I have the LS960-I integrated. Best amp I ever heard. Detailed yet sweet, bass every bit the equal of quality SS amps like the McCormack DNA-1 it replaced, a deep and wide soundstage right up there with the very best. Especially after I... 
Vinyl heresy-overhang induced distortion is not that important
fonicsmith, my wife from Russia is. Talk like Yoda she does. You meant what I understand, she says. Often tell her I do: Do! Or do not! There is no try! Die hard old habits do.Possible it is sense to make grammar regardless. Provided of course the... 
Brilliant Pebbles, a new tweak, cheaper than high end cables.
I don't know about brilliant pebbles, but this is pure gold: I presented a paper to national conference fifty years ago regarding a design for a low thrust high specific impulse rocket engine for interplanetary space travel that develops thrust b...

How do you properly set up a horn speaker
There's no one and done method of speaker placement. Horn or otherwise. Its a process of trying to reach the best (in your judgment!) balance of frequency response and timing. If you go through the process you will probably wind up as I did with p... 
Can we hear from those who essentially repurchased previous system?
For years I had a system built around a Technics SL-1700 direct drive turntable. Never sold it, but moving around after college it spent many years in a box. It was during those years that CD’s were introduced. By the time I had money for new gear... 
Vinyl Sleeves and Jackets
The old guy who ran the shop with the most consistently fabulous sounding gear I ever came across (by far, not even close) made a big show when he pulled out a copy of Santana Abraxas of getting his fingers all over it. At one point he was holding...

As a matter of fact you are in good company. Don't take this out of context, but in terms of what you're talking about both Michael Fremer and whoever is the lead designer at Origin Live (forget his name) have said precise alignment isn't the be-a...

I saw that story on the other thread Frank and its funny but that was one of the things convinced me these things are for real. Reminds me of the time I had a party and this one guy from work who thought it was all BS (I told him even 1/16" of spe...
