@Geoman: Would really love to hear how some of my test CDs come over - Flim & The BB's, "Tricycle"; Jon Lord, "Sarabande"; or "The Power and the Majesty, Volume II [MFSL MFCD 812]". They should sound terrific, especially when you push the volume...although the last one might tax any chain to its limit :-)

PS: Actually, your power amp is which?

I'm sorry that I don't contribute to the topic, but thanks for the hint to that nice piece of music.

I'm thinking of putting together some custom loudspeakers featuring Infinity EMIT tweeters or similar.

Are they reasonably durable (i.e. handle abuse)? and do they need a lot of crossover tricks or do they function similar to regular tweeters?

a followup.. lots of crossover tweaks, built a baffle to reduce woofer box volume and seal off the mid..

in the end I went with morel tweeters. and focal midranges which I bought from a local warehouse old-stock sale. the speakers look the same, but sound a lot better. wolves in sheep clothing!

in other news, I won a NOS Shure RXT6 cart and have a fairly large vinyl collection, but no turntable, yet.

I agree..

while we're on the subject of music, I recently heard Ravel's Rhapsodie Espagnole (again, I've had the recording for years).. there is a subtle xylophone lick in the last movement (Feria) that tickles my ear in just the right way. But It's hard for me to like Ravel too much... I had to play snare drum in his Bolero once, urgh.

Not sure where else to put this, got a new toy so I can play my records, a technics SL-bd20d. Guy threw in a preamp for free. Sounds really nice. I like the idea of having a needle moving a magnet through a coil. It matches well with the idea of a magnet moving a coil to move the air (i.e. speaker).

just ordered ting ting's "we started nothing" the red vinyl.. I'm playing cheap trick as I write this. my dad gave me all his old vinyl. I'm pretty sure his favourite groups were devo, kraftwerk, alan parsons project, etc. lots of boston and some b-52s in that crate, too. Also the mainstream stuff everybody has, rush, styx, etc. from the 70s. Not sure how big of a difference it makes, but most of this stuff is canadian releases (have you ever heard the group FM?)

A good friend gave me a NOS shure cart which I have since installed. I think it sounds better than the stock technics cart.. not tested scientifically, of course.
