Love the Scoobies! I did a turbo swap and lift, on my winter wagon. Rebuilt 2.2l turbo from 94 Legacy Sport. Wisco pistons, ACL bearings and STI timing belt tensioner. Then rebuilt and modified the original heads from the 98 and bolted them (and the 98 intake manifold) to the turbo block. Stock com...

Again, special amplifier; worth the one hour tech fee to look over and advise you what needs to be done rather than risk damage to a rare bird with rare parts, some that cannot be replaced. It's not a 200$ receiver here guys, come on! Are you telling me it's not worth the one hour tech fee? Put it ...

Is it just me, or does there seem to be a lot of posts recently based on the idea of making CAM a more exclusive club? These posts create an interesting counterpoint to the other posts that constantly lament the death of the hobby. Reminds me of the joke about the immigrant standing in line at Elli...

Chasemike, Drago asked when you dealt with Micron. Maybe your contact was 20 years ago, and maybe they have changed who does their repairs, since then. I wonder who does them, now? Cheers, Alec If you go up this page only 6 entries, you'll see that I gave specifics including timeline. Sorry, I miss...

Hey all, I just acquired a Marantz 2130 and upon firing it up, it has a couple of burned out bulbs but all other functions work good and it pulls in FM stations with no issue. The one thing that bothers me is the scope. It works, and does every function it needs to do perfectly except when it is se...

Thought I did give some reasons as to why Micron service is horrible, but if more detail is needed here we go- Took a c220 pre-amp in for a faulty volume control under warranty (first time). Picked it up with case scratches from someone sloppily opening and closing the case. Found out that they had...

I bought an avr 280 last week. It worked for a while on my junk speakers. Then i found a pair of psb bookshelves. Hooked them up and they played for about 15 minutes and then the receiver shut down. It would power up but then immediately shut down. So i took it to a shop to have it looked at. It ha...

Ok, so by now im sure most of you know my story when it comes to a few receivers ive had. My Denon blew up and my Arcam blew up due to a short causing low impedance. So to replace the Arcam, i bought an NAD T761. It worked great. Been using it problem free for months. Well today my wife texted me a...

I am considering purchasing this amp new or a used Wyetech Topaz. I was leaning towards the McIntosh but now I am not sure. I saw this video and it just struck me that McIntosh does not make their products like they used to. Should I be concerned? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HgS6gvokEI I work ...

I would ask first if they have proper equipment to do alignment.You need lab quality FM stereo alignment generator and a scope.Lot of people call tweaking trimmers and coils by ear an alignment.

We use the Furutech deMag on both Vinyl & CD's on a regular basis prior to playing any record album. The benefits of demagnetization are very apparent and not subtle at all. We have also used it within specific cabling applications with excellent results. On the vinyl front, the pigments within...
