Because my system is situated in a basement, my only concern at this point is my tuner reception is week.  Anyone have a recommendation on a good antennae to enhance reception in a basement (my tuner is a Carver, of course, TX-11). 
Thanks to all who have assisted, especially Jim in Rockford, who has received my emails and texts graciously.   
 
You really need to get something up higher. Can you use a roof or wall to mount an antenna outdoors or even in an attic? 
The Copper Cactus is an excellent outdoor antenna. HERE 
There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakersare used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Exactly KVE,
 
   I have the same issue, and understand that there is much more to be gained from the attic arrangement. If you do go that far, I think there should be a medal given for it. We all have the same feeling about having to work in the attic.

Nothing simpler than this:
 
The number to remember is the length- 57.3" , for a half wave dipole.
There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated.

Thanks, but this is way out of my league.  Getting my Carver pre-amp up and running was an accomplishment for me. This type of adaptation is way above my pay grade.

Slow and steady wins the race. No such thing as stupid questions. 
 
Welcome to my favorite website to do with everything audio and then some Cool
You would think that Vinyl Engine would be better at answering vinyl related questions but I'm a member of both sites and TheCarverSite has been far more helpful to me and these people will answer quickly compared to V.E. 
 
You will be surprised at what you can accomplish with some research and help from the people here.
 
Don't sell yourself short. Four years ago I would have never thought I could repair CD players or up-grade a hafler DH-500 amp with new RCA inputs and new speaker binding posts.
 
I know my limits but you can't grow unless you get out of your comfort zone and try things you didn't think you could do. Now I'm not saying to dig in and try too much at the same time, but learning new things is what this site is all about. That and helping out other audio nuts.

Adcom ACE 515 (Line Filter and component timer) Definitive Studio Monitor 450's on Steel Definitive Stands, SVS 12" 300 watt powered sub, Sennhiser HD 598 headphones, Realistic APM 200 2 watt to 200 watt LED amp output monitor

Special Thanks To:
