    Im selling my Tandberg 3014A cassette deck I've had for 10 years now. Its had less then 100 hours of use by me since I received the deck.

    21 Used Sony Tapes (Chromes Plus Type 1)

    What was Sony's Best ES Deck from 90s?

    I have an A7ES deck, but it needed to be heavily modified to sound as good as some older Sony decks. Someone said the TC-K555ESJ may be their best deck from the 90s soundwise, but does anyone really know? Both the A7ES and 555ESJ have Dolby S, so this is why I wonder. The 909ES is the 222 deck...

    Jelco Or Rega Arm for Linn LP12

    Since Im keeping my Linn LP 12 turntable instead of replacing it outright, I need to replace the arm on it. My two choices through the store I go to is the Jelco 750 arm or the Rega RB303 arm. The Jelco is a good match for the Linn, but is the Rega? Which of these two arms is a better performer...

    Music Hall 9.1 vs ClearAudio Performance DC Turntables

    Since I'm selling my Linn LP12, a better turntable set was suggested to me. The option was between the Music Hall 9.1 turntable or for a little more money, the ClearAudio Performance DC with the best arm option. I will still be using my Dynavector 17D3 MC cartridge, so whatever cart comes with...

    Linn LP12 Bouncing Eratically During Playback

    It wasn't bad before, but since I'm able to play records again, I'm having problems with my platter bouncing, or more like shuddering, during playback. This causes the cartridge to bounce with it and skip across the record. It never used to do this. My music today was not loud at all, so it...

    Just BIN'd a Nak ZX-9 Deck

    I have been wanting a Nak (either Dragon or this deck) for a while now. I saw this on Ebay this morning and he only wanted $900 US for it. These decks have been listing around $1500-2000 lately. So I saw an opportunity and asked him if he can take payment for it on July 15th. He said yes, so I...

    My Afternoon Visit With Nando- Elite-ist.

    We haven't met up for 4 years now, so we both felt it was time to do another visit. I mentioned to Nando about the stereo shop that opened here in town and said I'd show him a few stores while here. So we planned to meet up for lunch and Nando drove here to my home town of Chilliwack. He drove...

    Subwoofer Partially Blown?

    I'm wondering if I've damaged the voice coil in my Paradigm Monitor Sub 8 subwoofer? It uses an 8inch driver with a high wattage amp. Goes down to 20hz for an 8inch. That said on some songs with kick drums or what have you, I'm getting popping sounds coming from the sub. It doesn't do it with...

    Repair of Luxman and Pioneer Tape Decks

    I have a Luxman K-03 which has a wow and flutter problem, plus a Pioneer CT-F950 which needs an overhaul. I'd prefer to get this repaired in Canada, but if not the best option, who can repair these decks in either Canada or USA? Preferably someone who may have access to parts obsolete or can...

    Tonearm Skipping

    I was playing a few records last night with my new cartridge and during playback, the needle litterally skipped into the next few grooves at few points. Did this on more then one record. I tried the antiskating set to 2, but didn't seem to help. What would cause the needle to skate across the...

    YBA Preamp Phono Stage vs Classic Valve Design Phono Pre

    I had the chance today to listen to my stereo shops custom made by Classic Valve Design- Solaris phono preamp. I just got my turntable finished from the store with a newly mounted Dynavector 17D3 Karat MC cartridge. While it was at the shop, I had the owner have a customer bring in the Classic...

    Showdown- YBA 2 Preamp vs Sonic Frontiers SFL-2 Preamp

    I used the same SACD player output with splitters to 2 cables- each to each preamp. I then disconnected the preamp output from one preamp to the other preamp and connected that to the main amp. So basically I should be getting the same signal into both preamps and the outputs are separated from...

    YBA 2 Preamp

    I just made the deal with a seller for a YBA 2 preamp with MM phono section included. I wasn't completely happy with my Sonic Frontiers SFL-2 preamp, so I went ahead with my original plan to buy this preamp. I'm hoping this preamp will offer what my Rotel did, but with refinement. The SFL-2...

    Sonic Frontiers SFL-2 Preamp

    Been wanting one of these for a few years now, and I remember when these were on the market. I frequented a store in Vancouver back then to listen to these units. Had the chance to buy a used unit off a good seller, so I made the purchase with him. This unit is the plain Jane version with no...

    60 HZ Buzz from Left Channel

    I haven't been able to pinpoint what is causing this yet, so I'm looking for some ideas. I'm getting a 60hz buzz coming from the left channel on my speakers. It only appears when I turn the preamp on (amp is already on). It gets louder when the source player engages, or if I switch to other...

    B&W Matrix 805 and 804

    I had a wanted ad out there on Canuck Audio Mart for some time. Just this last month and half, I had two people respond to the ad. One was for the Matrix 805, which is what I was asking for. The other person responded saying he had some 804 speakers for a really good price. So I ended up...
