That's one I'd love to hear. The thought of Dave Brubeck and Anthony Braxton playing together makes my head feel like it should explode anytime now.

I swapped in a new phono preamp tonight and figured out what killed the sound coming from my turntable. Apparently something is really wrong with the NAD phono pre I've used the past 10 years. I inserted a Pro-jeckt Phono Box S and suddenly all the high frequency extension and air that was missing are back. Just as important is the fact that the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge that I was thinking of pulling out and taking a hammer to actually sounds like the press it's received all these years.

Nice !!! I had a similar experience. I recently went from a uTurn Audio Pluto preamp to Project Tube Box S and the difference was night and day. It's even better now that I put some better tubes in.
I would love to try the Tube Box S, but it's not in the budget at this time. For some time I've known something wasn't right, Checking the cartridge set up didn't help, so it was between the cartridge and the preamp as to the source of the problem. Now that I know the phono preamp was the source of the problem I can finally start to appreciate the cartridge on its own merits. It really helps to catch a sale at the right time.

The owner has all 28 for $100. I claim no association, just at the nexus. I briefly thought about offering $50, but then I have NO place for the sets.
Wow !!! I would be all over that if it was in Northern California.

Great deal. I've run out of room years ago. Good thing it's not local.
