  1. V15/3 Stylus

    I have the Shure V15 together with the japanese needle you mentioned, manufacturer is called Jico.

    Seems to work perfectly if you ask me.
  2. Yet more cartridge confusion

    http://www.sac-gmbh.de/sac/start_frame.php?Pfad=11_12_30&BL=10

    It just gets more and more confusing to me. Here the conclusion of measurements (!) seems to be that the MC is better still.

    Isnīt...
  3. A serious Shure

    I (although I only listen to vinyl about 5% of the time) also use the Shure V15 with a brand new japanese needle and it sounds quite fine to me.

    It is mounted on a Dual with Dual tonearm and sound...
  4. Speakers to compensate for other issues?

    Maybe the whole loss of high frequencies due to analog playback is why many modern speakers are a little hot at the top end spectrum? Just to bring out at least some treble? And maybe this is the...

    Just idling?

    If you DO NOT use the power of the amplifier it is not present to smear anything, it is "sleeping" in the corners of its "home" = the hopefully potent power transformer of the amp.

    If you DO use...

    Further illogicality

    And the myth that the amp does make a big difference (even if it is powerfull enough to suit the needs) continues while Mr. Shaw constantly insists that he bought a cheap amp (was it 80,- GBP ?)...

    Dissimilar set-up yet same result ....

    @acroyear:
    I believe I read the same test.
    What I found interesting is, that not only the electronics were hugely different in price. If I remember correctly the expensive one was placed...

    Really?

    Are you seriously worrying about that point?
  9. Sticky: My wooden ears?

    Well, I do hear at quite high levels sometimes, still never heard the clipping.

    In oposite I allways thought the music to stay quite pure and clear, even surpingly clear given the level.

    As to...
  10. Sticky: Undetectable clipping?

    @acroyear:
    Just had a look. I have Attenuators with -10dB.
    They do make a difference on the "turning the knob" vs "loudness of signal"-ratio for sure. But I never heard a problem (aka clipping)...
  11. Sticky: Music?

    Maybe rather commonly known bands/artists in the "audiophile" context:

  12. Sticky: Permanent attenuators

    I have had a Rothwell Attenuator for quite some time cause the Quad 44 is often said to clip rather early on its volume-range. Don't know if that is really the case but as it was so easy to be sure I...
  13. Have it all with SHL5?

    Nothing to do with the TL-issue, more sort of my thought about the inital theme, aka "is there a universal speaker"?

    I believe that if a speaker is able to faithfully reproduce natural,...

    Don't waste the effort

    You can use whatever you want between the speaker and the stool, wonīt make a difference you can hear. So, anything that prevents stains or scratches on the speaker is fine. Even a layer of paper is...

    Why.... behind the speakers?

    May I ask why you made most efforts to tame the rooms acoustics on the least important area, behind the speakers (apart form the bass traps in the corners, which seem to be quite right)?

    Ceiling,...
  18. Adequacy of power

    Among most Harbeth users in this group it is consensus (against the usual audiophile mainstream) that amplifiers *should* sound the same. Only necessity is enough power for the volume-level desired. ...
  19. Stands for under Eur. 100

    Mirroring

    If you use the google picture-search you will see that it seems they usually were mirrored.

    So your assumption, besides sounding logic, is not taking us nearer to the truth.

    That is really unusual.

    Very true.

    I am struggling a little with the invitation. I am a little shy in the end when it comes to visiting people whom I have only spoken to for some minutes (allthough they were incredibly...
  25. Mixing with real English speakers!
