    The output signal of a phono cartridge (ca. millivolt level in the case of most MM and MI cartridges; ca. 100 microvolt levels for most LOMCs) is delicate. Avoiding unnecessary connections (i.e., "RCA plugs" in lieu of hard-wired cables) is, still, IMO, a best practice.

    And yet he can’t handle the simple courteous decorum everyone else uses across the Internet of posting BELOW THE POST HE QUOTED!!!!!

    Are you referring to me?

    I was but I appear to have the wrong person I believe, so my apologies.

    I’m editing my post to remove it.

    That's cool. I find it almost as annoying as most people here, so I was confused for a bit. :p

    I try to spell check my posts just to TRY and make things proper. There, they're and their was my first lesson I believe. I never forgot it, but I might, at my age slip now and again! :D

    But my sentence structures sure are terrible by what the grammer correct points out in the numbers. I'd have to pay to see or correct my sentence and paragraph structures, so there will be issues for the remainder I guess. :#

    But grammar/spell checkers are only trying to help us improve. That's all. :D

    You know, Tony. You are so correct. Most people can laugh at themselves when they make a simple mistake. Others go on the defensive and get all uptight. It's usually those people that like to find fault with others most of the time. :p

    Usually I can spell pretty well, and if I don’t know a word, I tend to Google it beforehand I post or comment or turn in a assignment etc. what really gets me is my spellchecker. I type really stinkin’ fast on my tablet, and Siri just doesn’t know what to do sometimes, so she decides to add to and remove from words, or on occasion try to say something not nice. It’s really annoying.
    Edit: Siri is at it again! Replaced before with beforehand. :confused: I don’t understand her sometimes.

    I think my dad told me to admit and acknowledge my mistakes. There's nothing wrong with making mistakes he said...as long as I learn from them and try not to repeat them.

    Measure twice, cut once kind of thing.

    I noticed 3 mistakes in my post above after I posted it. I even misspelled "There"...LOL.

    I'm thinking I need a new keyboard. I swear I hit keys, but the letters or words don't get printed on the screen sometimes... :s :D

    My grammar check says I have (3) and (1) things wrong in this post. LOL.

    I suggest 2 things Tony: turn off the "soft clipping" feature and see if you can place a 2400PE (or higher) in the 2155's stead.

    Not that the 2155 is any slouch, but the extra current and headroom afforded by the PE series can make you step back and say "wow".

    In either case, no "soft clipping".

    With what money? There is the problem. For me it is better to put my money towards a new pair of speakers, or new electronics, or upgrading what I already have, because TBH, my system is (relatively speaking) low end.

    Agreed, those don't even classify as cables.....I used to tie up my tomato plants with those. You don't have to spend a lot of money for decent cables. Maybe once you realize cables are a part of your system just like a CDP/PRE/AMP, or any other piece of gear, you'll understand the bigger picture.

    Well, yeah -- oxidation would be a big issue for 'mater management with lower quality cables. ;)
