Synergistic Research ECT
Okay so New Years Eve watching The Bird Box with the wife wasn't doing much for me so I decided to try something. The movie was a download playing from my MacBook Pro. Part way through I got up and stuck an ECT on the MacBook, upper right corner c... 
Well... guess I have to jump in the rabbit hole of speaker cables... lol
I have no idea what else may be contributing to what you're hearing, but your cables are definitely crap and at least a part of the problem. Speaker cables (and interconnects, and power cords) are not a rabbit hole. They are very straightforward- ... 
Herron VTPH-2A / Origin Live Conqueror / Koetsu Black Goldline
I met Ted when he came up to demo his then-new Active Shielding for a select few of us at a very boutique (I guess you could call it an audio salon although this one really was) dealer friend of mine. By then I had already experienced first hand h... 
Herron VTPH-2A / Origin Live Conqueror / Koetsu Black Goldline
Congratulations, Dana!I've never heard anything sound so good right out of the box as my Herron. Unlike some people I thoroughly enjoy listening to new gear. The way the sound changes is just fascinating. I put on a side, enjoy the sound, and beco... 
Is it all in my head??
Nobody can explain it Nonoise, that's the thing. Power being good and not varying has almost nothing to do with it. Power where I live is very good if you measure it. All you do is listen though and its obviously a lot better late at night. Also a... 
Is it all in my head??
Nobody really knows why or how these things work. If anyone ever did then in no time flat everyone else would too and the resulting competition would drive prices to the floor. That hasn't happened. Because no one has a clue. Just stories they tel... 
Turntables
[Edit: Oops. Somehow missed the post where you bought already. Oh well. Hope this doesn't turn out as painfully prophetic as it appears.... ]The guy next to me at the bar one night heard me say something and so started telling me about his stereo.... 
Looking for a New Cartridge
It seems to me there may be a much better way of looking at this. You already have a known top-flight cartridge. Why waste time chasing down the few cartridges that might work well with your arm? It seems to me the arm is the weak link. Always imp... 
Horn listeners - Do you have trouble listening to others?
I bought my first speakers at Radio Shack in 1972 by listening to everything they had. The only real option for a kid with a paper route back then. Several years later with a car and McDonald's money the best I could find was JBL L26's. Those last...

Yes, and it was Chris Brady and his Teres project that got me going and really learning about turntables. Turntables are strange things. On the one hand everything is out in the open. Very little hidden in a box, you can pretty much see how they’r... 
Herron VTPH-2A / Origin Live Conqueror / Koetsu Black Goldline
Now just one week in, and today put one Synergistic Research Blue Quantum Fuse and 3 ECTs inside. So now on top of the stage I got the fuse breaking in. These fuses do sound better one way than the other, and with circuit traces on the other side ...

The word above is Teres, not Tires. I hate spell check.

Frank, the table I use is of my own design, described in my post above dated the 18th. Here's an early photo http://www.teresaudio.com/fame/cmiller.jpgAt this time it was powered by an early Teres motor pod using the silk thread in the photo. Buil... 
Herron VTPH-2A / Origin Live Conqueror / Koetsu Black Goldline
dodge alum, I mentioned how many times I've been a little shocked at how real it sounds. A wood block or rim shot is so incisively sharp and true to life. A bass line comes in on a Jennifer Warnes track I know by heart, only now its not just full-... 
Herron VTPH-2A / Origin Live Conqueror / Koetsu Black Goldline
Yeah and mine comes in to listen with me a lot more often now too.I just had a nice conversation with Keith Herron. Just a few of the many interesting bits-The tubes that make it into the VTPH 2A are warmed up for 2 hours before testing. 1 dB too ...
