  1. This is no longer for sale, I have decided to keep it.
  2. I appreciate everyone's comments. I ordered a Modi3+.
  3. There are several good reviews of the Modius and the Modi3+. From what I have read, the Modius and the Modi3+ sound similar. The biggest difference seems to be the balanced output the Modius has. I don't need the balanced output, so I"m still leaning towards the Modi3+.

    I hate to see you go Dave. Stop back in to say "hello" every once in a while.
  5. Thanks, it's nice to hear from someone who has experience with both the multibit and the modi 2. I'm leaning towards the Modi 3+.
  6. Is there a performance difference between the Modi 3 and the Modi Multibit that justifies the price difference?
  7. My Schiit Modi 2 DAC died on Christmas day. I have used it for several years, and have been pleased with it. I think it would be hard to find a better DAC for what I paid for the Modi ($99). But now I'm in the market for a replacement. I'm looking at the Schiit Modi Multbit ($250). I'm interested in thoughts, comments, and recommendations regarding that or other DACs. I want to keep the cost below $300.
  8. I"m not sure how I missed this thread. I love vintage receivers. My primary system is a Pioneer SX-1250 powering my 1989 La Scalas and I have a Pioneer SX-850 powering vintage Heresys. I also have a Pioneer SA-9500 integrated amp; I know, not a receiver, but it is a nice vintage Pioneer unit. It powers another par of Heresys and sometimes a pair of KG4s. I like the vintage Sansui and Marantz stuff too, I just don't currently own any of them. All of my vintage Pioneer units have been completely restored. The restoration work is beyond my skills/abilities, so I take them to Paul Hovenga of Many Moons Audio: http://manymoonsaudio.com/ Paul does great work!
  9. Pick a weekend,and we'll make it happen. Although, fair warning, we are getting ready to start some projects; Windows, siding, deck, and a new septic system.
  10. They are at my cabin. It's only 1100 sq. ft., so there's not much room. But, don't worry, I take them out on the deck and let them breathe every once in a while!.
  11. Thanks Rockhound. They are in their new home and sounding great; and looking good too!
  12. One more: Eric Clapton - 461 Ocean Boulevard $5
  13. I'll take: Eric Clapton - Clapton (no price listed, let me know) Ry Cooder - Into the Purple Valley $5 J.J. Cale - Naturally $5 Joe Cocker - With a little help from my friends $5
  14. The Excel file opened fine for me. PM Sent.
  15. I seem to recall it is more of an issue if you use 'metal' tape. But, I don't have a demagnetizer and my tape heads have not been demagnetized in years. I use 'metal' tape almost exclusively. While my tape deck is setup and ready to use in my main 2-channel system, I don't run tape very often these days. Mostly I just use it when a guest comments on it. I like to show them how good cassette can sound Most people are very surprised how it sounds, because they have never heard a good tape setup. They just remember their JC Penney 'hi-fi" system with the built in tape deck, playing back those pre-recorded white shell cassettes.
  16. I don't know about that. Back in the day, the audio shop I frequented would host factory reps and engineers in the store periodically. The Nakamichi engineers would look over your tape deck, measure and adjust things, and clean and demagnetize the heads. They did it to mine several times. I'm not sure what the heads are made of, maybe there is some ferrous metal in there. ?
  17. Just don't do it. I never play 'standard' store bought tapes. The only store bought tapes I play are very high quality ones like the Nakamichi Reference Series.
  18. I still have my Nakamichi. Properly recorded, on quality tape, cassettes sound very good. I used to use Nakamichi branded tape to record vinyl to. Nakamichi bought their tape from TDK. They would get the middle of a 'pancake' of tape and put it in their Nak branded shells (the middle of the 'pancake' is supposed to be the most uniform). I always used the 'metal' tape. I have a couple of reference recordings that Nakamichi did to showcase the sound of cassette. They are fantastic sounding! Another aspect of making tape sound good is keeping the heads clean and demagnetized. It's not hard to do, and makes a big difference.
  19. Getting ready for Thanksgiving.... Arlo Guthrie Alice's Restaurant
  20. NIce play @Full Range ! I have an original pressing of that in my collection in VG+/M- condition. One of my prized LPs. My current play: Chris Stapleton Traveler
