  1. Just a suggestion. Use that money to buy two SVS 12" subs and the RP404C center speaker. The subs can carry a lot of the weight. Rear speakers might also fit into your budget. Nothing wrong with bookshelf speakers.
  2. Redo the wiring on that speaker to make sure you have a good connection.
  3. I would recommend the MA352 along with the Cambridge Audio DacMagic plus. Both have XLR connections. I use that combination and I'm very pleased with both. The Cambridge is listed as #1 among DACs under $500. Talk to Ryan at Audio Classics. He's great to work with and a fountain of knowledge. There is a close link to Audio Classics and McIntosh Labs, both in central NY.
  4. No, it's actually real time copying but you can simply start the recording and let it run while you do other things. Once you have the sound copied and saved to the computer, you can use Wavepad Sound Editor to edit the audio as you wish by splitting the files. If you need some advice on how to do that, PM me. There are tutorials on how to use their software on the web. I don't know of any software that can "rip" (like a CD) just the sound on a DVD. There is software that can rip a DVD but they include the video also, which you don't want.
  5. A very flexible program by NCH called "Wavepad Sound Editor." There is a free version that might fit your needs. It is capable doing any editing that you would need. Does your BR player have RCA out and does your computer have the standard mini input? If so, you could use the standard RCA>Mini cable. For your purposes of listening to music out in the field that connection should be fine.
  6. Justin Webber has a real nice pair of CornScala in the garage sale section that may interest you.
  7. It's a question of wanting to build and finish (especially important) cabinets or buy nicely finished cabinets that you can enjoy right away. I had Cornwall III for several years and enjoyed them but I didn't like the smaller Heresy horn so I went to the CornScala D and enjoyed the horn much more but they were a little too large for my room. I now have the Forte III with two SVS subs and they fit my room much better. I understand that the Cornwall IV has received good reviews but I haven't heard them. The new Forte may be an option to consider also. Hope this helps a little?
  8. Have the amps been restored? If not, you may want to talk to Ryan Kilpatrick at Audio Classics and get his opinion: 1-800-321-2834. He's very knowledgeable.
  9. Since I have found the tubes in my new McIntosh MA352 to be excellent, I find that I do not need the tubes that I used in my McIntosh 275 and I am offering them up for sale here first before listing them online; wishing to give members of the Forum the first opportunity. These tubes are all excellent and tested strong when I purchased them. I was told by the vendor from whom I purchased them that they will sell for $50-$60 each if I sell them: Two Telefunken 12AX7 smooth plates, two Sylvania GB-5751 @$50 each. Finally, four RCA 12AT7 black plates that were purchased on the Forum $50 for all four. Frank Edit: KT88 and Amperex Bugle Boys previously listed are sold. Items listed above are still available.
  10. Yes, it's the Zphono. Thanks for the glws.
  11. SOLD For sale is my Parasound preamplifier with USB connection making possible connection to your computer. Thinking about digitizing your LP record collection? This device makes it simple. Simply connect your turntable to the MM/MC input of the preamp and the USB cable from the preamp to your computer. The preamp has a volume control to avoid over recording thus eliminating distortion. There are several software programs available to assist in the recording. That's all there is to it. It can also be used as a phono preamp by connecting it directly to your stereo. The preamp also has two more inputs for other components, such as a tape recorder, and a line out for connecting to your stereo system. Check it out on Parasound's home page. Complete with manual and box. $150 including shipping. SOLD
