Chowder_head, Here one silver cable you ought to hear: Luscombe LBR-35 (http://www.violins.on.ca/cables/lbr35.html) I take some personal credit for this one as I was one (of few apparently) who instead of showering praise over Luscombe previous cables told him they, how to put it? ... just didn't c...

Of course buying from Mapletree is a good idea as well, seems a real decent chap!

Bet his own stuff sounds darn good as well, unfortunately I haven't had the pleasure.

Why not use an older pre-amp for switching. My previous pre-amp had just 3 inputs, two were dedicated to CD and LP and the third connected to the Record Out of an older pre-amp. All the extras (DVD, Tuner, TV) then went to the (high level) inputs of the other pre-amplifier (switched by that devices...

Well I've had my BC stuff a solid week now and thought a few impressions would be in order. So what's it like? ... it's like Yin and Yang singing in perfect two part harmony. On the one hand what happens in your room is (this seems more fitting than saying ... the sound is ) composed, calm, refined...

Oh, don't forget that's one of the reason I use a lot of silicone because it has a bit of damping action in it too. :) No doubt! I appreciate the comments in the other post as well, as a matter of fact while the BC3000-II I just acquired has the really cool blue cover I have to admit I've already g...

Does anyone notices we have been using hotel furnitures at various shows? They are better than most audiophile equipment stand. Most audiophile stand ring like a belt but they shine with gold and silver plus fancy glass on it and they sound like crap. Well hate to be snarky, being as I'm a new come...

I guess that hook was nastier that I thought! Tomorrow I take posession of a BC3000 MKII (built 2004). BC3000 MKII + BC22 MK II ... anyone know details about polarity, i.e. does either or both invert polarity? BTW, from photos I've seen of recent builds this one seems almost identical with the exce...

Thanks PhilNYC, Well I already mentioned the speakers, sources are Jolida JD100 CDP, and for LP a Roksan Xerxes with Jolida JD9 phono stage (cheap but ahhhh so very good, scary actually!). The pre-amp is the all tube minimalist Eastern Electric MiniMax. It remains to be seen if the BC22-II will imp...

Hi all, A buddy of mine just moved to BC gear (BC9/BC8 II) and after spending a few hours listening to the transformation I was like a fish on a hook, there was no fighting it really. I had planned to locate a pre-amp as my first move but tonight I just won a BC22-II on eBay so I guess I'll be tryi...
