    Thanks for help on the seals.

    36-40 years ago I delivered windows & (metal) doors so I’m familiar w/door sweeps.

    Merry Christmas 🎄! Tony

    I've also delivered hundreds myself. Small world.

    Merry Christmas to you too.

    All Doors should have their names on them. Andersen even has their name and date made on their glass in the upper right hand corners.
    ...

    I think it would be cool to have doors named "Jim" and "Morrison".
    Or even "Mr. Mojo Risin"

    B)

    Our outside basement door has a frayed bottom sweep/seal -- I think :) it looks just like the one pictured above, so (in all seriousness) this is ineresting information to me!

    LOL.

    Jim for reg. doors. Morrison for double doors. :D

    If you can't see the sweep's pattern from the edge of the door bottom, tap the hinge pins up and out and tilt the door on its edge.

    Get your eyes on how the sweep is attached.

    They come in 32" and 36" for 99% of them. I saw some 40" ones... :o

    Sweeps are a breeze to fit and replace. I did one recently. The seals in the jambs...?

    10 months—no vacations, no travel, no shows, no entertainment, no restaurants. Merry Christmas to me. Retired my modified 11 yo Rega P3-24 ( gave it to my daughter and sol-they had an orbit). Picked up a Prime and Soundsmith Zephyr MKIII. So quiet! Great detail but not clinical. Only 20 hours in. Waiting for it to open up. Very happy camper here.

    Looks great! Not a table I've been able to get ears on, but I've always wanted to. Same for the Soundsmith. I think that combo can last you as long as you want it last.

    @Milito, Happy belated Birthday.

    I wish my little family would give me gifts like that. :p

    You're making a good run at a long life. ;)

    And I'm right behind you. :)

    No... crazy it is. When I play PF ANBITB it was perfect. When mover the needle to song six, Comfortably Nubm the sub sonic acted up. When I went to Santana all the songs were exhibiting the same issues.

    Sounds like good ol' acoustic feedback, assuming this is a rekkid you're playing?
    Resonance is an interesting topic. What's the arm/cartridge match like?

    This may be very old news to all y'all :( but, a while back, I learned an amazing thing somewhere on teh webz: maybe on (IIRC) ASR (sorry!) -- or maybe it was here :p or @ AK.

    One may use Audacity to get a good estimate of one's arm/cartridge/stylus suspension resonance.
    Audacity has a built in "FFT" spectrum analyzer. Set up a rekkid to play, "sample" playback of a silent portion of said rekkid (e.g., the lead-in), then use the "analyze" function ("plot spectrum" option), set the "size" parameter large enough (16384) and voila -- visualize the arm/cartridge system resonance!

    After setting up a second system in the “Pit” a few months ago,this morning I pulled the Graham Chartwell’s out,and put the Nola Boxer 2’s in the system. This is the first time I’ve set up the Nola’s in this system. They sound great to these ears.
