What a terrible shame. You would think it to be common sense to remove the platter and take the time to learn how to ship a table properly, but alas, there are plenty of disaster stories out there.

Big congrats Cyrus! Are you running Vandersteens? And which phono pre are you using with that Audio Technica? Hey '57, Yes, those are early 90's 1B's. I had the 2ce for awhile, but they overwhelmed the room. The 1b work really well in the space, and sound very good. The Sugden gods will rain down u...

Thanks guys! I've been polishing up the cover this evening. Initially I used a Simonize kit used for faded headlight lenses, then followed up with a hardshell wax. Really successful, and got rid of most of the surface scratches. I love your new table Rusty, I've always wanted an HK table too. I'm su...

A gorgeous TD-147 now graces the heart of my audio system. I couldn't resist with this one, she is an absolute beauty, in superb condition. She's the Jubilee Edition, so adorns the light gold coloured top plate. I was not aware initially that the 147 shared the same specs as the the 160 Super, with ...

Another vote for the Sugden A21SE. Brother has had one for the past 6-7 years. Brilliant thing. Cracking amplifier!

I'm experiencing the enjoyment of a better cartridge now with the same phono stage, and the difference is quite significant for the better. However, when my brother has brought his $2,500 stage down for a listen in the past with the lesser ( but still good) cartridge, the difference is more signific...

I'd like to clean up a few contact buttons on my 1976 HK A402, as a few of the push buttons are causing a bit of channel fade at times (the old Harman Kardons are especially known for this). I see there are a few different Deoxit options available. Any suggestions on which variety would be the best ...

I wish cbc fm would return to the classical/jazz format and dump the current one that is mostly inundated with garbage bin there done that music. You know which one I am talking about. Its so repetitive. They also should bring back the classic stuff of pop, rock and punk for late weekends along wit...

I listen to NWPB (NPR) public radio during my waking hours every day. It's on as background the moment I arise to the moment I retire. I don't critically listen to classical over the radio, but occasionally a particularly good sounding broadcast will catch my attention and I'll stop what I'm doing t...

Nice find! I had a 730 a few years back. Now I'm having fun with an A402, the integrated version with the matching 403 tuner. Lots of balls, and good sounding gear.-- 25 Aug 2018 18:00 --Nice find!

That's a beauty, a nice looker. I had a similar experience a few years back when I picked up a Harman Kardon Twin power 730 for $125 locally. I couldn't believe how good it sounded. I had it recapped and, well ... :cry: I just acquired the integrated version, the A402, and it's great! These pieces a...

I had a Revolver "red" for years, it was a really nice sounding TT. Had a Goldring 1042 mounted. 17 years I ran that table, and it is something that I wish I had kept. I sold it (with remorse), and replaced it with a Pro-Ject Expression ll. I thought that the Pro-Ject offered up a bit more...

I've been in his shop a few times, but it was years ago ... 15? Anyway, he was a nice guy to chat with, but it was a very unusual shop. Small, and really crammed with stuff. I will also agree that he is very passionate about his work and products. My brother bought his entry solid state phono stage ...
