  1. The dim glow stay put on the troubled amp when I swapped the preamp tubes. Yes. But I have not have time to open the amp to do voltage measurements. One thing I noticed is that if I turned off the system at night time after retiring and turned it back on during the early evening everyday, there would be no delay in the audio output. If I turned on the amp every other day, then it took from 1 to 3 minutes to output audio. And if I turned on the system every two to three days, then it took 3 to 5 minutes to output audio.
  2. The filaments of all four tubes on both amps lighted up almost immediately after I flipped the power switch. Both 6SN7 driver tubes on the troubled amp were slightly dim compare to the good amp. But once the troubled amp outputted audio, the driver tubes remained slightly dim. I swapped the driver tubes from the good amp to the troubled amp but the problem remained. Both the rectifier (CV378) and the 2A3 tubes remained strong.
  3. This is the very first thing that I tried. Nothing is wrong with the right channel. The left channel exhibited the same behavior.
  4. Yes. It now takes from 3 to 5 minutes. Yes. No. No noise.
  5. I don't check into the forum as often now since I am extremely busy but this came as a shock to me. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Boxx and your family will be in my prayers.
  6. my left Moondog took a minute longer to output audio. My take is that one of the cap needed to be replaced but I don't know which one. Does anyone know if this is the correct diagnosis and which cap do I need to replace? Thanks.
  7. I didn't want to unmount the cartridge from my Axis so I will wait for the sonata. I should have it within the next couple days.
  8. Thanks, Josh. I will order the Grado Sonata.
  9. My AES PH 1 does not have the adjustable cartridge loading. I like the PH 1 and I don't want to get another Phono stage. I will not be using a SUT so I prefer to keep it to MM only. I am willing to spend up to $500 for the cartridge. Thanks.
  10. Thanks josh. Can you recommend a cartridge?
  11. Are you saying for the same price, I can have a new VPI Scout that can play right out of the box and that it is better than the LP12?
  12. Well, I have had the Linn Axis for about 10 years and I am pretty happy with it. A few days ago I saw a brand new (still wrap in the boxes) Linn LP12 with Cirkus bearing, Lingo power supply and Akito II tonearm for $1,800 at a garage sale. I thought that was a great deal and I couldn't pass up on it so I bought it. Since I don't have a cartridge for it, I am asking for recommendation on the cartridge. This is my first venture into the LP12 world. I've heard that the difference between the Axis and LP12 is day and night.
  13. I have the following questions: 1) Pre-Cirkus or Cirkus bearing? I have read that some prefer pre-cirkus. 2) What type of cartridge is best suited for the LP12: MC or MM? 3) If MC what would the least expensive but good tube MC Phono stage be? All inputs are appreciated.
  14. Can anyone give me some information about this German-made table? All comments are appreciated. Thanks.
