There's 5 left...out of...24. Granted, there were total of 5 people in the house last night.

Absolutely. Always need more audio nerds in my life. 

 

As for the room...mine is nowhere near ideal, but it still sounds great. After listening for awhile now though I realize how much I need this damn record cleaning machine. ;)

That looks awesome though.  I've always wanted to put together a speaker set up, but I do not have an ideal room for it in my current living situation.  When I get my own place and can spend some time putting together a nice room for music, I would enjoy a setup similar to this.  

I need one too.. Really badly..

Once the wife's tax return comes in we're getting a Nitty Gritty 1.5Fi. Around the same price as the usual manual vacuum cleaners from VPI or Okki, but it's fully automatic.

For $860? Really? Anyways, I just got my Mad Dogs in the mail. Won't update my system till I get my Beyer DT880's with wood cups inbiggrin.gif

2 pumps to get the fluid ready and 2 switch flips. Per side. Done.

What is your source and where is the volume knob positioned at normal listening levels? I've considered getting a TP60 for my HE-500.

But for $860blink.gif I was thinking about this one: http://www.amazon.com/Spin-Clean-Record-Washer-Complete/dp/B002UKSZUU/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1362181779&sr=8-3&keywords=Record+cleaner Bad choice? 

post #11635 of 20234

Well yeah, good vacuum cleaners are usually a minimum of like...$600. Get whatcha pay for!

 

Also, I thought about a Spin Clean for awhile. Just never ended up with one due to other upgrades. At this point I think my 3k TT deserves a proper vacuum cleaner. 

 

I got some stuff cleaned recently and have been having major static problems. With the cleaned LPs there's no static noise at all. Even with my anti-static brush my non-cleaned LPs build up static. 

 

It's pretty amazing what a good cleaning will do. I've been told that a vacuum cleaner is the biggest upgrade any analog nerd will make, and I totally believe it now.

Just sounds odd to me to pay that much. I guess I'll get the Spin Clean sometime..

Yeah, a good cleaning is essential for older records, even new ones sometimes. I'm thinking about getting the VPI 16.5 or 17. My audiophile neighbor Fred has a fully automatic one, probably one of the best money can buy, from England, and I've cleaned several of my records on his and now I have to get one eventually.

Just an Audio gd nfb12. Cant bring any of my heavier gear with me to UK.

 

On low gain, baroque and most well-recorded classical the volume knob is around 9-10 o'clock, metal (aka compressed stuff) is around 8 o'clock. High gain doesn't give much control with the knob. I'm a pretty low volume listener btw. 

 

IMHO you should go with a lower watt amp. I've had the He-500 and even the Nfb12 can drive it to ear splitting level @ 10 o'clock. Most of the well-regarded T-amp using TA2020 or 2024 (trends 10.2se, HLLY) should give you plenty of power and control with the knob. Most people seem to favor the TA2020 even though it's the older chip in the t-amp line-up.

Just go 17 if you get one. I'll let you know how I like the Nitty Gritty because as I said before, it seems almost too good to be true price wise. 

 

My dealer has a Loricraft and that thing is pretty amazing, but at the price of my turntable I'm not planning on getting one anytime soon.

Loricraft, that's it! I just looked that up, yeah, that's the one what Fred has, one of their models, probably the most expensive one. If I had to get one, that's the one I would get, but it's pretty expensive...I don't know, maybe a good investment?
