    • This is my only experience with hearing two very similar turntables, with one having upgraded tonearm wiring.  The improvement in sound was really obvious.  I had not been expecting much improvement from the new deck.  I just knew the old one had controls with sticky actions, the platter bearing had a faint “tick” noise when the platter was turning, and I thought the turntable might be near the end of the trouble-free part of its life.  I knew it had had a rough time before I bought it, because I had to re-align the tonearm when I got it home, since it had been knocked crooked at some point and even had scrape marks at one of the bends.   This was in the summer of 2010, and I knew that the Technics 1200/1210 turntables were going out of production soon, so I went for it.  I had to get one from a music store in Calgary, since all the M5Gs in British Columbia were gone.  All the low-priced ones went first, of course, so I paid top price and considered myself lucky to find one at all.   As well, although the differences between the 1978 turntable (other than model differences) and the 2010 model seemed small, I reasoned that the Technics engineers had not gone out for a coffee for twenty years, so there had to be refinements that might be small and barely worth mentioning, but that added up to definite improvements in the sound and reliability.   All that said, I had expectations of a slight improvement in the sound, and was very pleasantly surprised at what I heard soon after lowering the needle.  Also, after buying so much of my gear used, it was great to lift something out of its nice new box, knowing that everything is straight and undamaged, even the parts I can’t see.  It’s not so much of a deal with speakers, which can be ugly but sound fine, with a mechanical device like a turntable, a scrape on something like the tonearm is more than cosmetic damage.   All told, it was a great day when I connected everything and heard the fine new sound from my fine new turntable.  Ten years later, it still looks and sounds excellent.
    • Really good pro reviews of the RP-8000Fs out there as well as user reviews.  Klipsch appears to have made a great lineage of speakers even better with the RP series.  I am sure you would be very happy with these.  Though the RF-7 1s are over 15 years old, they are still enjoyed by many folks today and are considered one of the "legendary" models in Klipsch's storied history.  The RF-7II and RF-7III are just refinements/improvements of an already great speaker.   Bill
    • It is true. Information on Cardas wires clearly make this obvious for potential buyers. It is standard procedure.
    • Preamp to passive crossovers? then to power amps? I'm confused.
    • Someone can share the setting of foobar? maybe i have the wrong setting.
    • I would suggest that you put this request in the garage sale ----
    • I followed the link on this picture and ended up watching the video below... It made me realise that using high end gear, in this case 'enameled' wiring, may lead to problems for the uninitiated (here: you must remove the (invisible) enamel on the copper before soldering). http://www.cardas.com/litz.php   
    • Can anyone tell me if I will benefit from paying for a sparkos or Sonic Image input buffer? Not sure if this will help with overall sound quality. But more importantly I'm wondering will an input buffer help with voltage or gain?
    • Last one for the evening, but I was way too keyed up from the drive to just go to sleep.   @kirby said I really needed to try and get by @Dave A to listen to the supers and he was correct.  Understand that what we had at SWAG was great, but the supers and the 402's were the best pair of speakers I've ever heard, period.  Funny how we were chatting at SWAG about how all speakers really need a sub and we were listening to different speakers with and without the sub just to hear on the fly what they were all like without a sub.  The Super MWM's, don't need no freaking sub and I would be shocked if you all don't agree when you've had an opportunity to hear them.  Obviously, they aren't going to be in many home applications due to the size, but I've got to hear these things in the same type of setting where they can really be opened up.  Absolutely amazing, IMHO.  Thanks Dave, I wish I would have had more time, but we're going to do it at the next event.
