TOP INFO HELP
  • Does a phonostage require burn in?
        Burn in can make subtle improvements in the component function that, depending on the quality of your system and your own personal priorities, could translate into big improvements in performance. With rare exception, most audio designs have components, especially capacitors, that never see a stabilizing bias voltage. These components benefit most from burn-in. Burn in is the application of asymmetrical signals which have a tendency to "charge" these components and, for a time, stabilize their performance. The process should be repeated every 3-6 months.
  • Do Record Clamps Really Help?
       Yes. This is simple to understand. When the stylus is sitting in the record groove, the record behaves like a microphone picking up sound in the room and vibration from the turntable body and support system. Clamping the record firmly, reduces the record's ability to freely vibrate allowing the needle to "read" the groove more accurately. The improvement is a clearer soundstage and better bass performance.
  • How Can Different Interconnects Improve The Sound?
       Part if this is purely better materials and construction. machined connectors and split center pins, ensure a more reliable longer lasting connection than more common designs. Gold plating is more reliable and less resistant to oxidation than other finishes. The other more subtle part is wire stranding techniques. Isolating strands and using varying width conductors is known to make subtle improvements and, depending upon your personal priorities may translate into big improvements in your musical enjoyment.
  • Do Sorbothane Footers Really Work?
       The best example I can give here is my own experience with our Technics 1200 turntable. With the stock feet and with the needle on the record, if you tap the turntable on top, very little sound is heard through the speaker, but if you tap it on the side... A bump.. bump.. bump is heard. When I replace the stock feet with the SD50 Sorbothane footers, the side tap is just as suppressed as the top tap is. I know that tapping is not quite the same as vibration from sound, but the result gives me a little more peace of mind.
  • Are Contact Enhancers Worth All The Effort?
       Electrical contacts degrade very slowly over time. Most audiophiles hear big improvements when they use a contact enhancement product for the first time. It is best to apply contact enhancers when you first connect a new piece of equipment. In this way, you will slow the rate of degradation, and minimize the hassle.
