Nothing at all wrong with the AT95E cartridge; it's very well regarded by most people. The SH forums are, interesting.

Thanks

What's the best way to connect my iPad to my stereo?

I use the iPad to stream iTunes radio, Pandora, and Spotify channels. I currently use a cable from the headphone out to RCA in on my Marantz PM8004 integrated receiver. It works but I suspect I'm...

If you want to go vintage, I'd be looking at stuff along the lines of the Marantz 22__ series, or Pioneer, Kenwood, Sansiu, etc.

Tube gear tends to be hot, fussy, and distorted (which its fans...

I think the ritual is something people who grew up with vinyl would appreciate more than younger people who grew up with CD's, MP3's and streaming.

The ritual is more than just making sure the...
