      I'd be surprised if the people at U-Turn even knew what "effective tonearm length" meant.

      And that's all I'm going to say about the Reloop. All may infer whatever they like from the comment.

      I love newbies when they have their "You know what? Vinyl actually sucks!" moment.

      Let me see, do I have to prove that I own a cassette deck to the moderators?

      I really care about audio. That's why I'm recording stuff on cassette tape. Lol.

      Cassettes: respecting sound quality, i'ts now a race to the bottom

      Cassettes, for people who didn't get the memo about thumb drives.

      Currently reviewing my entire collection of restored audio files, particularly the ones remastered from mono to stereo.

      Don't want to be accused by the moderator of "crapping the thread" or something, so I'm only posting once.

      For people who live in mortal fear of standards of proof, the internet offers many safe havens. It makes Michael Fremer possible.

      "Advise" is a verb. "Advice" is a noun.

      And I would have posted this stuff in the regular forum, but I didn't want to be accused of being a meany-pants.

      If only the speaker drivers vibrated, decoupling stands wouldn't be necessary.

      Speaker decouplers are designed to control secondary resonances associated with cabinet vibration. They give you cleaner playback.

      Running controlled experiments is hard work, which is why most audiophiles don't bother.

      If my single post, in turn, gets responses, they'll just go unanswered.

      Based on what I've read, it seems the easiest way to avoid violating forum rules is to respond/post only ONCE per thread.

      Remember, if the seller calls his piece of crap "vintage", it suddenly becomes a great piece of gear and a collector's item.

    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. The last big project I did was 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 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 home studio right now: a Dual 1229 turntable and a pair of KEF 2-way, 8-inch floor-standers in custom cabs.

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

    I rip and restore shellac and vinyl recordings.
