    Any decent digital source these days is neutral. I can't see anything wrong with using that as a reference because the specs are so much better than vinyl.

    You can assess at turntable's neutrality by comparing the sound with a digital source of the same material. The SME is neutral, and that's always what I've been looking for in a hi-fi. "Coloured"...

    The cable discussions are always well worth a look in. I'm in the "BS" camp, but both sides are usually entertaining.

    Even in top spec at >25,000, the LP 12 is mid-fi at best. Not terrible, just awful vfm and bettered by cheaper offerings from Notts Analogue, SME and Rega to name but a few. And it's liable to go...

    Rega Planar 9. It's the jargon, They are rare. Other good brands are Notts Analogue, some Thorens, and some others. Join a hi-fi forum (and just smile and nod at the LP12 enthusiasts).

    If you don't mind second-hand there's a ton of bargains. People with expensive turntables do not in general abuse them. Have a look for a used P9 if you don't mind taking a punt. The owner would...

    Budget integrated amps can vary in sound quality, but not greatly. With a vinyl source, it pays to get the best turntable you can afford (except an LP12) and skimp a bit on the amp & speakers.

    If vinyl crackles, you have a spherical stylus profile or the record is damaged. More sophisticated profiles reach further down into the groove where the signal is. The crackling is higher up in the...

    Seconded with Rega.

    Do not make the mistake I made of buying an LP 12 - the most over-hyped product in Hi-Fi history. Easily bettered by an SME 20 and without the endless tiny upgrades at inflated...

    I have an ancient 981 GTS manual, and I sort-of agree.

    Does the new car really sound so much worse? It's slightly up on power, 0-60 etc., and the chassis is better, but I'm still enjoying the old...
