      There is something special about listening to vinyl. Makes you focus and relax.

        I really agree with you in more ways than you can imagine. PLUS you have a Schick tonearm, so I'm not all that surprised you said this. Enjoy in good health my friend.

        Being nice is something that has been on our minds. The admins / mods have talked about this. No one has had time to make a formal announcement.

        They were selling a lot of stuff from a whole studio, I think they just wanted to get rid of it. Nothing else too good that I wanted though.

      Think my TT is broken for good now. First tried to remove auto system, then fix too fast, then I got bored and broke it more experimenting.

        Yeah, well I knew this was coming, after I taped a tissue box to the tone arm to try and make a make shift horn. Turns out that it wasn't as light as I thought.

      I might be parting with my pretty omega speakers soon. They are getting no use with my HD650's. And I'm about to get a pair of Ohm Walsh 2's

        I found the k7xx to just be completely boring, offering nothing good. I found happiness and fun in the exciting arms of a grado. But that was not meant to last. It's time to make a serious commitment.

      According to my now calibrated mic, looks like I listed to my music at about 70db. Good, I wont go deaf.

        When I got mine in I was surprised at how loud 70-75db actually is. I was listening at around 65db before.

      These Omega's are tricky. They sound very nice in the mid-upper range but the bass is just non existent. And they are so pretty...
