  1. Official review @ 6:10 : "sounds pretty good!" I hate everything about this.
  2. Where do we go to actually pre-order this? Not sure if I'm just terrible at searching but I can't seem to find anything.
  3. Thanks! i was nervous to adjust anything incorrectly. It was already set at 47k but adjusting the gain helped quite a bit. I appreciate it.
  4. looks like a great deal if only i was a garth brooks fan...
  5. I'm new to the actual hardware/setup of turntables. I recently purchased some upgrades for an inherited turntable/setup and I'm not 100% on how to make sure I'm setting it all up correctly. I upgraded the stylus and preamp from what I owned previously. Current setup: Thorens TD-126 MKII, Grado Prestige Gold cartridge, Grado 8MZ Stylus, and Schiit Mani preamp I've noticed since replacing the preamp that the audio is very quiet. It sounds great but I'm turning the volume on my receiver up 50 to 75% higher than I had to before to achieve the same volume. I know there are toggles on the bottom of the Mani but I have no clue what to set to those to (I'm currently using the Schiit recommended default). I used a protractor to verify the alignment of the cartridge and a special scale to verify the weight after replacing the stylus. Are there any other things I need to do to make sure my setup/config are optimal? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. I've never actually replaced a stylus on a turntable. What tools would you recommend? I've seen the force scales and alignment protractors mentioned in other places.
  7. I can provide better/different pics. What would be helpful? Essentially, I'm trying to figure out how old the pieces are and then determine if they need to be replaced. Just trying to figure out the model so I know how much this is going to cost me Thanks again!
  8. Thanks! I have no complaints about the sound but I'm not sure if there's an easy way to tell if the stylus should be replaced. I've found very different answers online. Any recommendations?
  9. I'd appreciate any help identifying this cart. I have no way of knowing how old it is. I just have the gold wrap and "66H" or "H99" on the back to go off of. Thanks in advance!
  10. How'd you get this? Was this via email or is there a code to use?
  11. It looks like the version on their site is sold out. Anyone know if the copies on bullmoose and other retailers are the same colored vinyl or a standard black pressing?
  12. THANKS! i feel like a dummy for not realizing it was in AUD and not USD. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the preorder
  13. I don't want to miss out on this but I also don't want to pay 12$ shipping. Any word on this being released in the US?
