Worst Rock Band Ever !!!!
I might have to say the Fugs.  Anybody remember Boobs a Lot?  
McIntosh tube upgrade - worthwhile?
Just to add--I am a Mcintosh owner and fan and although I quailed at the cost of this book, it turned out to be a good read and no regrets. Bill  
McIntosh tube upgrade - worthwhile?
The book is really The Mcintosh Story.  Mr. Kessler did a lot of interviews and covered a lot of ground, so IMO there isn't a lot of real depth about circuits or individual products.  It's more of a journey than a textbook.  It did reflect the goa... 
McIntosh tube upgrade - worthwhile?
In the book "for the love of music" there are commentaries about tube availability and performance that Mcintosh dealt with in their design of tube-based products.  It's an interesting read if you are into  Mcintosh. That being said, things may h... 
Benz micro glider cartridge loading advice needed.
I have an early Glider, it was my first higher-end cartridge.  You should use the MC gain setting or things will be pretty quiet, if you like to listen at volume.  Benz cartridges work best with the higher load settings.  I would suggest trying 22...

Jo No. 5 mounting problem
Just to add a little, I tried the No 5 on 2 type IV arms as well as my IV.5i and none would fit the cartridge.  Down the road I acquired a 309 for other purpose and was surprised to find that the No 5 fits OK on the 309. The drawings on the old S... 
Please Help. J. A. Michell Gyro SE - Speed Issue
For what it's worth--I had a similar issue with an Ariston table.  The platter was spinning really fast and kept speeding up.  I took the table to a local stereo repair shop and the problem turned out to be dirty potentiometers in the speed adjust... 
how to remove a woofer from b@w801n
I watched/helped a tech remove my 801N woofers.  The driver is held in by the perimeter screws, and there is a paper gasket around the edge.  IIRC the connectors are not hard-wired.  Removal is much easier with the speaker laying on it's back.  Th... 
Basic question - connect McIntosh integrated amp to LS360 speakers?
Basic answer.   Interconnects and speaker wires are different things.  Interconnects are terminated with rca plugs or din connectors and are used to connect things like CD players to the amplifier.  Speaker wires are basically twinlead wires term... 
"Can You Lift Yours?"
OK, I have a story.  My MC2000 weighs 135 lb. and I had it stacked vertically above 2 monoblocks also stacked.  The MC2000 was on the top shelf sitting on a BDR Shelf for the Source (about 35 lb. I think) sitting on racing cones. I was moving to ... 
Listen with your skin.
Do any of you recall the articles some years ago about the deaf gentleman who listens with his hands holding a balloon?  He had serious systems, and said he could discern differences in cabling.  I suspect that his experience included more of his ... 
Why can't I load thumb drives?
Thank you for your suggestions.  You have answered the basic question I had, whether or not a thumb drive is useable. I will format and proceed accordingly. Thanks again, Bill  
Why can't I load thumb drives?
I have tried 3 different thumbdrives and every time the copy begins OK but slows down to almost nothing after a few GB, and starts indicating errors in the files.  Finally I give up.   As I said above, a friend told me that memory chips are just ... 
Why can't I load thumb drives?
My mistake.   gigabytes, not megabytes, and copy not transfer. I was tired... Bill
