Listening with B3 at the moment to the :   http://www.classicalcdreview.com/stanislaus.html   This recording has been hitherto "unlistenable" ; if  the level has been kept so that at the full blast of the organ  equipment still somehow "survived", it was too quiet at anything but the peaks - or you could have the average levels at the correct volume and peaks herondously distorted.   Havi B3 is the first audio "whatever" I have heard that is capable of giving this...
"Collateral damage # XY" -    http://www.dx.com/p/vertu-ccav-s-cycling-bike-bicycle-hollow-out-seat-saddle-black-230766#.U2JI7Pl_v9Q   http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Multi-Color-Comfort-VERTU-CCAV-S-Cycling-Bike-Bicycle-Hollow-Out-Seat-Saddle/251328102406?_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109&_trkparms=aid%3D555012%26algo%3DP   This does look tempting  - review from dealextreme says it can also support heavier riders. And unlikely someone will come up with yet more...
The answer is a resounding YES. Depend$ what you are after. If it is "only" repeatedly carrying your head home on the shoulders, can be as lowly as ( or similar too ) : http://www.dx.com/p/bicycle-led-cobra-style-silicone-safety-light-grey-white-red-249653#.U2IXx_l_v9Q http://www.dx.com/p/2-led-3-mode-white-red-light-fog-bicycle-lights-black-pair-2-cr2032-51737#.U2IkKPl_v9Q Testing this on open road in pitch black night produces the desired result - vehicles will change...
Thank you ! Although not hung on the biggest bell, I also happen to have the K-340. Not listened to in... longer than I care to remember. I find there is far too much disparity between dynamic and electrostatic drivers, giving an incoherent sound. I know there are tons of mods - but my priorities lie elsewhere. As I write this, cheating Havis with JVC HA-S500s at the moment, listening to the same song as played by the chick with the mutually (dis)liked smile - by the kids...
It is not only replacing/aligning the cart; TT itself has to be cleaned, lubed, minor but all important settings have to be done, etc, etc. I might start phono setup, with pics of the real styli, their performance as measured by an oscilloscope, maybe brief "needledrops", in duration short enough no legal action regarding copyrights can be launched back at me, etc.  If one has the knowledge what to look for, a really good setup  (used, off ebay, craiglist, etc ) can be had...
+1.
In new TTs, Project and Rega models are the known, proven suspects. Tons of reviews.  Their cost is also well known - so if your budgest stretches to XY $ - and not one single cent above - choose the one you can find "locally" at a "decent price". They also usually come in "plug and play" ( "nothing" to adjust) condition, so safe for a total noob. In old/used/even NOS, the FIRST thing to ask yourselves is whether you have some predisposition for fine mechanics - or you...
The same type of question as what was first : a chicken or an egg  ? I will cover this in my promised answer "How much minimum should a newbie invest in QUALITY analog setup? " And as I wrote, this is streeeeeeeeeee..............................................tchyyyyyyyyyy .Any you can not put a firm price tag on it - not really.
It does help ... just somehow can not see it used for KC 06 marketing LOL ! My B3 chose to fall on the floor in the church I recorded a concert in 9 days ago - as it is remote area of the church I usually "hide" with all of my equipment, and thar area is generally "off limits", the dark black clam havi case was left on the black marble strip, almost under a step, in a corner that even lighting can not reach - so it was still there. Stealth at its best ? Otherwise, I am...
Nice to see one of my favourite bands from my high school still going strong. This medicine might well prove to be too much for the emotionally unstable - although I cherish Peter Hamill's lyrics, there is far and between I actually listen to them.
