So many pros use audio interfaces with Windows that, if they thought bit depth was affected by OS gain, they'd scream bloody murder. Jul 18, 2018 at 6:39 PM

      I enjoy violating people's safe spaces with what are meant to be completely innocuous posts.

      My Dad said his belt-drive AR turntable always looked a lot better than it performed. He finally sold it to get a Dual 701.

      The cheapest shirt-pocket digital recorder outperforms the greatest consumer analog tape recorders ever made.

      I'd say if your tonearm headshell has an audible sound signature -- even if you think it's desirable -- you have a problem.

      The ideal tonearm headshell would be rigid, lightweight, and non-conductive.

      In more than 45 years of using turntables, I've never been able to trace performance differences back to differing headshell materials.

      Guys often buy audio gear for same reason women buy jewelry: it isn't what the thing does, but how owning it makes you feel.

      Engineers moved on from the cables "issue" a long time ago. It's only audiophile dweebs who are still talking about it.

      Cables: Even when scientific information is available, people won't read it or, if they do read it, they'll refuse to believe it.

      People who make and sell "audiophile" power cables are preying on the gullible.

      To paraphrase others, I can give you the information, but understanding it, and using it effectively, is your job.

      When I want to make it clear that I don't actually know anything, I express "my thoughts on" or "my take on" something.

      I swear, for some people, if you can't get info with the tap of a smart phone icon, that means the info is completely inaccessible

      What you hear may be governed entirely by your expectations.

      I always remind myself when I make a suggestion that I'm not the one with the problem, and I'm not getting paid to post.

      IMO, it would take real neglect to make the counterweight of an SL1200 tonearm stick. It should be very easy to remove.

      Man, if you're REALLY interested in a subject, don't ask me about it. Look the stuff up, because, chances are, that's what *I* did.

      I have to use turntables sometimes for engineering projects, but I would never make one the centerpiece of my livingroom stereo.

      If the Eloi actually existed, I'm convinced they'd be writing turnable articles for 'Stereophile'.

    Call me an audiophile, I dare you.

    I'm an audio technician. Mostly, I just twist the dials for the people who do the real work. Projects have included engineering for a physicist doing a sound-level profile of Orchestra Hall for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
    My studio systems are all SS, with, for the most part, digital playback. I only ride the vinyl short bus when I have to do the occasional audio restoration project. To me, turntables are just tools for getting the job done. I'm a digital guy at heart. The oldest things in my collection right now: a Dual 1229 turntable (permanently retired) and a pair of KEF 2-way, 8-inch floor-standers in custom cabs. My desktop monitors are JBL LSR305's, hitched to a dbx 231s EQ.

    Recommended book for vintage-heads: 'Radiotron Designer's Handbook', published by RCA. It's available as a free download. Just Google the title.

    Any halfwit can claim a discovery. Getting one's peers to confirm the discovery, let alone apply it, takes brains.
