I don't have an equilateral triangle going on with my speakers and listening position, but thats about it. If I could just get my fiancÚ to understand that chairs in front of the speakers are a no no, then I would be golden.
I did create a turntable mat that uses cork instead of felt, and it seems to work pretty good. I probably need to adjust the height of my tone arm though.
Ortofom needles, Daddy.
I am in love with them.
They don't wear out for a loooong time, unless you break them. Like I do. I once let out a drunken, blood curtling moan at 2:30 a.m. one night after breaking one. Neighbors were FREAKED.
Anyway, I'm not much of an audiophile, but I love my turntable and records, and I go through lots of needles and Ortofom's making the best I've heard.
The Germans, man. They know their Hi-Fi.
