I recently did my Celestion SL6S with the original spec Alcap electrolytics from Falcon Acoustics. The difference is astounding!

Thanks Tube, yes, since I acquired the Akai, I've done some research on the Akai models, and the V04 comes up as a good one. I may keep and eye out for one too at some point. I've been in touch with a CAM member who is also a tech/contributor to the Tuner Info Center, and he has offered to fix up th...

Hello Gang, I have been enjoying trying a few different tuners of late. One day, I will stop all the nonsense and acquire something like a vintage tube Sherwood 3000 and be done with it. But for now, it's quite fun trying some of the older cheap tuners. Some can surprise with their sound quality. On...

Dan is the man. Worked on two of my Sugden amps. Both came back sounding superb. Very reasonable too, as many have pointed out.

NPR Radio from across the pond in Washington. Auditioning my new $20 Akai At-K03 tuner from 1980 that I picked up today locally. Cleaned up very well, and has a certain "sound" that I quite like. A bit diffuse and laid back, very smooth, quite sensitive. May be one to recap, we shall see!

A few years ago, I saw a Vincent CD player, with a tube in a little round window on the front face. After researching, I learned that it was built for Vincent by Shengya. The retail on the Vincent was $1800, and the retail on the Shengya branded player was $600. I bought a used Shengya (with the lit...

The Shelter 201 with essentially the same body is a great sounding, robust cartridge with a big sound. My two favourite carts at around the $300 price point are the Shelter 201 and the Denon DL-110. Quite different sounding, but both quite entertaining.

Tapping in to the vast CAM collective once again if I may. I have acquired a nice NOS Jelco LAD370D from an esteemed member, and will be mounting it on my modded TD-160 mkll. I have the beautiful cherry wood plinth installed, now the arm upgrade is next (the LVX is quite good on the table, but I bel...

If there were numerous complaints from the CAM community regarding Teo, then it would be safe to say that Teo had difficulties with it's customer service. To my knowledge, there is no such track record, and, as succinctly put by others in this thread, Teo has always come across in a highly professio...

i just did a refurb on a 1229 for a friend. it's a great table - he has a shure v15 type iii, and that thing gives my thorens 126 a run for its money. a 1229 will almost certainly need some service if its original, the motor was pretty noisy when i first got it. That is very interesting. I am intri...

Good suggestion Revolver was one of those great designs that got lost for a while becuase the company went belly up. Music Hall builds its 5 series tables based on the Revolver split plinth concept. I understand the new company called Revolver is relaunching the Rebel version. I loved my Revolver b...

I'd really love to hear one, never have. Like to compare it my TD-160 with an LV-X arm. I think most would give the nod to the Thorens, but I know not all would. Seems that idler drives have a different sound signature that some (many) prefer over belt.

Mac and vintage Klipsch are well known for synergy. Cornwall would be nice.
