    Trying to source a counterweight for an Rega P2 w/Stock RB250 tonearm

    So I'm kind of desperate now. I cannot seem to track down a counterweight for the Rega RB250 tonearm. I've emailed Rega, so maybe they can help... But it's the weekend. Thought maybe somebody here would have any ideas? Not looking to spend a lot of money on some boutique third party one, either...

    Looking to purchase, but can I obtain the ++ and -- ?

    Looks like I missed the thread where people are/were having issues with the tubes snapping in half. I guess this kind of kills it for me, because knowing my luck, one would break off while still in my ear, and that would freak me out big time. Have SA addressed this issue perhaps ?

    Looking to purchase, but can I obtain the ++ and -- ?

    As the title suggests, I am interested in purchasing the SA6's, but I'm also curious to know if I'll be able to get the bass ++ and treble -- ports that I've seen mentioned here ? I've listened with and enjoyed Shure E530's and wonder how close in comparison they rank to the SA6's, because the...

    I put Beyer velour pads on my Panasonic RP-HTX7's

    Quote: Originally Posted by incognitoedleon Nice! I was looking for a way to replace my HTX7 pads with something better. By the way, does the sound change with the pad switch? Not terribly much. I also cut out the inner lining of those velour pads, so that it's open and airy like...

    Panasonic RP-HTX7 Mod [56K WARNING]

    Found this thread via Google, actually. Was looking for replacement pads... Anyway, I really like their sound signature. Good defined bass, treble isn't too harsh IMO (I'm an oldie @ 36) and they display a good level of detail with all sorts of music. I think I bought them @ JnR last year...

    DAP history so short. Why are people getting it wrong?

    DAP history so short. Why are people getting it wrong?

    Just going to quickly say that the iRIver iHP 120 came out right before the first gen iPod, and IMHO has bested every gen iPod in terms of SQ and features (out of the box). To this day, I still use my iHP (which is now ROCKbox'd of course) over my 5th gen iPod, which is also Rockbx'd because the...

    UE Super. Fi. 5 Pro alternate tips?

    Do any of the Comply tips fit the im616's ? I'm really needing replacement tips for them. I don't like the flange ones at all, but do like the foamies it came with. But if Comply's fit too, I"ll buy some of those.

    AKG 271 for $54.95!

    Adorama is a very reputable place. I get camera equipment there all the time. Call them concerning the issue, and I"m sure they'll straighten it out. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that the owners are closely related, if not the same as the guys at B and H photo.

    Soundcage custom made canal phones.. ?

    This dates back to about two weeks ago, while I was heading into the vinyl section at Virgin Record store at Union Square (NYC). There's a kiosk set up right outside of the vinyl/video game section there, where people have been getting custom made silicone (think it's a mix though, but not sure)...

    Cowon needs to hear from you

    Are Cowon actually still in the game, as far as a new line up of DAP's is concerned ? Every DAP company and their mother makes silly little low capacity flash players these days, but you rarely see the introduction of good high capacity HDD DAP's anymore. I'd be more than happy to campaign, or...

    Why lossless on portables?

    I didn't bother to sift through 6 pages , but wonder if anybody has said this: I put FLAC files on my iRiver H120 because when I do my needle drops, that's how I encode them for archival purposes, and it's also how I play them when I go from the line out of my iRiver to my Outlaw Audio receiver...

    Sony MDR-V6

    I think that no matter what, those Beyer's are going to need more power than what the iPod can supply alone. They'll probably never sound as good as they can without an amp IMO. Secondly, I used to own the V6's.. I miss them, a lot. For some reason, (cord perhaps) one side just gave out and...

    AKG 240S Need amp to shine etc ?

    Interesting. Then I'd love to find out exactly what the Guitar Center people are using to amp their cans on the rack, because none of those negative qualities were audible to my ears. In fact, I'd say they sounded remarkably close to neutral, with emphasis on the airy mid section. Mids are...

    AKG 240S Need amp to shine etc ?

    I was in the Guitar Store on 14th St (union square) the other day and saw a decent standing rack of cans to try out. Amongst them were Denon 1000's some Sennheiser 280's, a couple pair of different ones that I can't remember but weren't much worth mentioning if I recall, and a pair of AKG...

    Ordering from Blue Jeans Cable ?

    That was awesome. Just got off the phone w/Blue Jean and talked to a really nice rep who placed my order. Not only that but he answered my questions very honestly and saved me some money in the process ! I like the honesty. His opinion on the techflex stuff is that for speaker cable it's a waste...

    Ordering from Blue Jeans Cable ?

    Seems like a very neat and easy mod once you know the right size. I'll figure that out, thanks ! I'm probably getting the BJ 10-gauge 5T00UP (unless that's total overkill ?) cable.
