    esi juli@ & windows 7??

    there's no drivers on Esi's website for windows 7, so i thought that vista 32 bit might be the only other option. I might have to wait until the full release comes out in a year

    Cartridge Problem

    lol, i actually put a platic tip to a mechanical pencil on the headshell and it added the extra .3g, but the stylus is still screwed, so now im looking for a good weighted cart for the arm, without riggin it

    Cartridge Problem

    i had the weight maxed out (closest to the pivot point) and was still only getting a tf of about 1.4gms... the cartridge recommends 1.7g... Is this because the cartridge weight is low? and i cannot get enough tf from the current weight on the arm... This was a secondary TT, that i had setup for...

    Cartridge Problem

    I have a technics SL-B2 with stock tone arm, I replaced the cartridge with a goldring elan cartridge from the music hall 2.1, i couldn't set the tracking force correctly and i think it bent the stylus. What cartridge weights suit the techincs tone arm best? Any advice on what cartridge would be...

    A foray into the world of vinyl

    am i right to argue that direct drive turntables inherently add bearing noise to the playback? or is that low enough in frequency to not affect the audible sound?

    turntable noise floor?

    it seems as though i do have some inherent noise from either my preamp or integrated amp, as with the cart off the record, i get quite audible noise when i put the volume to halfway on my reciever... Is this just a filtering problem in the amp itself, or would a line conditioner help at all...

    turntable noise floor?

    thanks for all the replies guys... i moved my preamp away from the turntable as much as i could, as i figured there might be some emf or something that could have been affecting the cart pickup. i'm still going to be tweaking my tonearm, as i am still debating messing with the vta on it....

    turntable noise floor?

    Hi all, I played some records today, at a fairly loud (compared to normal listening volume), and heard a lot of noise in between tracks... any idea if thats a tracking thing or could it be my cambridge audio preamp?

    Cartridge Problem?

    hm interesting... its a little hard to see in that pic but thanks.. Ill have to think if i want to mess with the VTA on the arm, from what i hear it can be a real bitch, but ill try the playing card method

    Cartridge Problem?

    so do you think i need to raise the vta a bit, as it seems that the front is a little bit too low... (if it is supposed to be a tail dragger).

    Cartridge Problem?

    im getting a shure tf measurement balance, maybe thatll work better.

    Cartridge Problem?

    ive pretty much triple checked the tf, however i dont have any super duper expensive scales to measure it, just a balance one that came with the deck and a small digital scale, thats accurate to .1g.... the recommended TF for the cart is 1.4g and im right around that mark give or take .1g

    Cartridge Problem?

    i suppose i could be just a little anal... i cant help it ... I guess what im making comparisons to is the "music tracker" that was originally on the mmf 2.1 deck, that i put on an older deck for a friend... its a crappier pic but you may see the difference..

    Turntable Cartridge?

    very interesting read. I didn't realize there was that much material science and duhh mechanics involved. So now my hunt continues for a proper cartridge.

    Turntable Cartridge?

    is it usually the case that MC cartridges weigh less than MM? I know my preamp has both MM and MC options, so i suppose whatever best suites my tonearm is what i'll get.

    Turntable Cartridge?

    Thanks for the input! I have a question in regards to something you mentioned, I know the tone arm is pretty heavy but what were you referring to when you said the Grado compliance might not work? Is that just the mass of the stylus itself, or am i way off?

    Foobar v0.8.3 and Juli@

    Hey all, I'm currently using my Juli@ with asio 2.0 out from foobar 0.8.3, and was wondering if there was any way for me to add ALAC support to it. My main reason for wanting this is because im looking into a new mp3 player, but a lot of my music is in FLAC... However, sadly both players im...
