that would not make for "warm" tonalities, they would be cold and clinical.

my two amps have fans in them; a long time ago i cut the electrical wires to the fans so the amps would give me warmer sound.

today, i could sell those amps for quadruple the price!

That is a really nice amp. They even recommend the Audez'e LCD-2 Planar Magnetic headphones for the HP amp section mod. I bet that is a match made in heaven.

The Audeze LCD-2 is THE headphone I really want to listen to some day.

Enjoyable thread this.

I have an ancient Rega Planar 3 with the cool glass platter, but not the SME arm. It's one of the original Rega arms and not very good.

I think Vinyl can sound great, but Alan is right - CD is just more accurate. Vinyl, and valve amps for that matter, can have a warm sound that is quite relaxing, and if you like it that's fine. The only problem I find with CDs or other digital sources is that the clean extended top end can emphasise deficiencies in speakers, room acoustics or in original analogue recordings.

My turntable is only used these days to transcribe my record collection to FLAC files for playback via my Logitech Squeezbox.

I also agree with Ian about the nostalgia and aesthetic value of an LP smile

No Murph, tubes emitting blue light are probably bathing you with X-Rays.

However, a wash of electrons boiling off of one plate and rolling through the vacuum to the other sure make some music magic.

I have a Music Hall mmf-5.1 with an upgrade Goldring 2400 cartridge.

My dad has a Harman Kardon Award Festival tube amp monster, F50XK HK tube tuner, Garrard 301 turntable system sitting in storage. I have to get back east and have them boxed and shipped.

First, your hair falls out in clumps. It gets worse from there.
