Touraj Moghaddam, Vertere’s founder and chief designer, gave a detailed description and explanation of the new third-generation of Vertere Reference Tonearm. Some eleven years after the launch of the original Tonearm – one that was considered genuinely revolutionary – the third generation brings additional flexibility, ease of use/fine-tuning and, of course, improved performance. The […]
Hello all, I have a Sota Sapphire that I love. I recently purchased the reflex clamp. I cannot tell a difference. Perhaps they matter when you have an older record that is somewhat warped? What do you guys think. Observe the conversation and/or express your view by clicking HERE
From the archives I’ve been running a XX-2 mk. 2 into the P75 (mk 1), (thanks Joe) and just ran it in the Current Amp, zero resistance mode. Problem is I have no idea how this actually works. While I am going to test this with my ears, and with full confidence, I’m curious to […]
I set up my first Unipivot arm night before last. It took roughly 5 hours to set up and I am still tweaking various parts and cartridge, what a work out. The arm is a Scheu classic with the Scheu Premier I turntable and a Scheu Benz cartridge.Now I have two questions for the Audiogon […]
Sarah Barness (The Huffington Post): If you know anyone that “seriously” collects records, they are probably exactly like this guy. They organize their collection by sections for generic metal, stoner metal,death metal, punk, shoegazer, dream pop, jazz, ragtime, classical, rap, R&B etc. etc. etc. If the records aren’t organized by genre, they might just be […]
Looking to try an Acrylic platter on my Systemdek 11x – I’ve seen options from 10mm (same as original glass platter) up to 20mm. Is thicker better?

As the title says – what are the symptoms that a cartridge needs to be retired? The cartridge in question is an ADC XLM MkII that I’ve been using for a few years, but it’s definitely old and probably saw use (unsure how much) before I got it. It just sounds… flat. It’s one of […]
OK folks, a ladyfriend of ours wants to buy her hubby a turntable BUT sadly ONLY wants to spend £100. My dear wife pointed out that I was a bit of a hifi nerd(misguided!) so thought I could sort things out for her(?) I’ve tried the “oh, you can’t get anything for £100, BUT Richer […]
The RIAA curve is a rather dramatic equalization network applied to record albums and 45s over the last half-century. Why is it there, what does it do, and when can we expect it to be retired? Watch Now
Give your opinion of what you think is the best all around vintage TT! This should be interesting!!!
They say you need a proper stylus force gauge to give a truly accurate reading. Are the mini digital stylus scales £15 on ebay worth buying please? Is that a job done? Cheers.
“As some may have noticed from other threads I currently have two 1963 Lenco L70s as well as a Spacedeck / Hadcock. I’m starting a thread just to document where I’m up to – it may be a long, long while until this project is finished as I’m still not entirely sure where I’m going, […]
