Equipment Specs

I would like to request that the magazine consider an article by one of the expert equipment reviewers that helps the reader determine which specs are important and which have much less significance.

I have only been a subscriber since June and while I learn from every issue an occasional article aimed at us 'neophytes' would enhance my enjoyment of your fine magazine.

Also, thank you for your new message boards. They have already provided a nice supplement to your publication.

Re: Equipment Specs

Thank You for your suggestion. I ordered from Amazon today. Perhaps I soon will not need a neophyte thread. One more plea for Stereophile: Bigger print for these aging eyes:)

What do you spin mostly on your Thorens? You problably have much vinyl.

I really don't have that many LP's probably about 250. Lately, I've been listening to to early Chicago and Steely Dan. They seem to sound fuller and less harsh on the turntable perhaps because my CD player isn't the highest quality.

Re: Equipment Specs

250 albums is nothing to sneeze at. It represents many long hours of pleasant listening if you do not buy anything new.

Depending upon what your CD player is now, check out www.AV123.com and their Onix 88. I believe this is the older model MusicHall CD25 and is an excellent value at $299. The newer model Music Hall 25.1 is a good choice as well. www.underwoodhifi.com If you are in the mood to get nutty go to the Jolida JD100 tube cd player ($800-$900). I love mine. If you want to wade into the water of SACD Sony has some decent players under $300 to get started. But, this puts you into the quandry of going multi-channel as well and spending more money. I love 2 channel.
