    SOLD w/cartridge

     

    Free JVC turntable with quirky automatic operation. I used it in manual mode. I have a new and remarkable Ortofon 2E Red installed (retail @ $100) but it is not included… unless you want it left installed in which case I’ll sell the cartridge for $60.

  • Found a new home!

     

    Free University Sound corner speakers. These are vintage and have some scratches and dust… but they sound good because inside they have rare US horn speakers.

    The lucky SFAS member needs to be paid up on their annual dues.

  • David, it’s really cool, but why does it look like it’s on fire?

    For this month I’m using my soapbox to recommend a different type of musical adventure.  Sing Street is a must see for children of the 80’s.  The tag line for this extraordinary movie is “Boy meets girl, girl unimpressed, boy starts band”.    They take this simple premise and bring it to life making this film into a fla…[Read more]

  • Hey David,

    The 3 products I auditioned were the CT1 UR Helix power cord and the matching UR Helix RCA interconnects.

    Rick now has some great new products that we heard demo’d at last year’s Newport Show, which blew us all away. In addition to the effective Magnetic RCA adapters, the highlight was a well-constructed segment proving the efficacy…[Read more]

  • I wrote this report a long time ago and forgot to post it back then. Everything I wrote is still true.
    To say I am surprised by the outcome of auditioning High Fidelity Cables in my system would be the understatement of the year.
    To my ears, most cables I’ve tried (not all, most) sound different, not necessarily better – representing more of a ta…[Read more]

  • Sterling,

    What a great, review! Thank you for posting it. I concur with your points to a spooky degree –– it’s as if I wrote it, except for the effusive “thank yous” to that Alón guy, whoever he is.

    Indeed, It was a memorable evening that surpassed even my high expectations. It may have been the best concert I’ve ever attended… which make…[Read more]

    Leslie’s Pick: 
    My musical pick this month is Hamilton.  Yes, there is a reason why Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote the music, lyrics and book and plays Hamilton in the show, is showing up all over the place.  
    I’ve found the soundtrack to Hamilton to be absolutely hypnotic.  To give you an idea about how much careful thought went into eac…[Read more]
