A friend gave me a sealed copy of this yesterday.  Wow.
I've got a very nice B1 pressing to compare to... the MoFi is so much more dynamic and clean.


Nice friend.  :thumb:

Doug,
Thatís a great website and I bookmarked it. The prices of those arms and others like Rega and Jelco are all quite reasonable. Iíve had my Graham arm with extra armwand since the early 1990s. No clue what I paid for it.

nick,
re: great site - i suspect you're referring to the adhuntr site, not the esoteric site.  i'd say it's pretty evil, actually!   :rofl:

re: the graham tonearm + extra wand, i suspect it cost a bit more than any of those empires; probably more than any two of them...  ;)

It wouldn't surprise me if the extra graham wand alone cost more than one of those Empires.  :roll:


BTW those pictures really brought back memories. I grew up only a few miles away from the Empire factory.

And the now that I think about it the US offices of BIC were only a few moles in another direction and  HQ of the US Thorens distributor was only two blocks from my high school.

Maybe this explains some of my life long obsession with LPs and TTs.  :thumb:

They make a huge improvement in my room.  Two between the speakers, two to the outside and forward, and two in front of each corner bass trap.

   Guys after rearranging location of difussors a little got it in spades. Thanks DAVE and GREG. What a difference.

Yep, they really open up and yet focus the soundstage, huh?

I like the idea of the LS 50s on the subs. My stands havenít arrived yet and Iíll talk to the dealer, whoís in Las Vegas, about this. This dealer is a long time a/v shop, but has added two channel recently and has nice gear like Naim, McIntosh, Dynadio etc.
Iím aware of the Isoacoustic stands, but donít know anybody whoís tried them. As this is a decoupling mechanism, I bought some foam recently and will put it under the KEFs. This was after watching a Bobby Owsinski video on YouTube. But thatís another topic....

i'm actually considering getting the smaller iso-130's for my ls50's - they would fit perfectly on my 6" x 6" stand top-plates, and w/the smaller legs, raise them an additional 3".  i think that might be beneficial, in my case.  not sure i need to worry about isolation, as the room has a concrete slab-on-grade floor.  and, if it didn't do much, i could use them in the kitchen, where my custom dillon acoustics egos sit on a pair of yamaha yst-sw305 subs that are 23" tall.  i use ~1" wood blocks under the fronts, to tilt 'em up a bit.  the system sounds pretty nice, actually, for non-critical listening, w/a rawsonte gainclone amp and audio alchemy dlc preamp, taking a feed from one of the main system's tape outs.  and, critical listening isn't actually nothing to sneeze at either, when i don't want to fire up the main rig in the other room.
