      Turntable is a 1980 Yamaha PX-2 , see here for details : http://www.vinylengine.com/library.shtml  Cartridge is a Benz Micro Ace H moving coil , a Herbie's Audio platter mat and vibration damper/record weight . Promitheus Audio reference C core transformer volume control , kit-built modified first generation Welborne Labs Moondog 2A3 triode single-ended monoblock power amps , Klipsch RF-5 floorstanders with upgraded parts in crossovers and internal wire replaced with single strand OCC copper,teflon insulated from VH Audio. Mapleshade Excaliber with plus IC's to power amps, and most recent purchase was an Equi=tech balanced AC power supply following a ZeroSurge TSC surge protector. Very clean sound, not too much hum for tube amps. Can't hear it when the music's playing . I'm waiting until I get my last purchase paid off before I get the Ray Samuels F-117 phono preamp I want. Digital from a cheap bluray player coax to Benchmark DAC-1, balanced out cable from : http://www.clairvoyantcables.com/index.html        It's their wire I use for speaker cables .
      I hope this answer wasn't overkill .                                        P.S. Adele bluray at Royal Albert Hall puts you in the concert with my sound and Panasonic Plama. Come check it out.     Joe

      You bet. If you Cockburn CD is anything like the LP, sonics are awesome.
      Btw I bought the Musical Surroundings Phonomena, pretty good! And around 15% off from Galen. Think it retails for either $600 or $700

      What kinda set up do you have now?

      At yesterday,s RCAS meeting I promised to post this list of my desert island discs. No particular order. Picture In A Frame by Kimmie Rhodes & Willie Nelson Blue by Joni Mitchell Judith by Judy Collins Songbird by Eva Cassidy Ella and Louis by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel Concert By The Sea by Erroll Garner After Midnight by Nat "King" Cole Mozart Clarinet Concerto & Clarinet Quintet by Richard Stoltzman with the Tokyo String Quartet & English Chamber Orchestra Two Hands by Leon Fleisher ( piano classical ) I was asked which would be the ONE if I could have only one and it would have to be the Louis and Ella for it's charm , great songs , Ella's singing, louis' humor,as well as the backup band is the Oscar Peterson Trio. I hope you all will follow and post your list. Joe Bohan
