  1. I am very pleased with the LRS and TFM-45 combo, which I have had for almost a year. The C-11 is replacing another pre-amp that lacked tone control, which I need in my room. I run a JL sub along with the LRS and it does very well FYI
  2. Welcome the 2 newest additions. The "Listen to the music" C-11 and the "Franken-amp" TFM-45 from the master @kve777 They are joining the "Mighty Miller" TFM-45 from the wizard @dennismiller55 who worked over several years ago They join a Technics SL1200Mkii tricked out, Denon DNP-800 network streamer/DAC, Teac CDP-650, Tube buffer from @4krow, Maggie LRS, modified Klispch RP600
  3. Welcome. Both myself and DCL (David) are up the hill from you in Ashe-vegas
  4. If I recall, what I saw under the microscope, the Spin Clean did excellent. Now that is for new vinyl, which I clean before play and mildly dirty vinyl. I'd still tip to US for the nasty stuff. But that is only my opinion
  5. I have several threads on DIY US cleaners as well as some on different cleaning methods before and after under a microscope. Unable to locate those threads right now bc I am at work. Here is the video of mine in action. Works quite well IMO and with some DIY its pretty cheap to build. I know there are several other DIY versions on this BB
  6. I own a set of LRS, but push them with my TFM-45 without issue at any volume. Although most of my listening is not loud. I am running a Jl sub and they sound wonderful. I've had them about a month and they are breaking in nicely and seem to be happy with the space I've provided them on the rear wall. If I recall it was about a 4 month wait on the LRS I currently have these in addition to Klipsch rp600m pushed by the Carver CF18 tube amp. The efficiency of the Klispch with the CF18 will drown out the LRS low efficiency when both sets are on which I knew would be the case. Th
  7. Thank You All! Apologies for being "lMIA" The house has occupied 145% of my time, but happily we are in our home as of Aug 1. The list is still very very long but with less stress to complete. Paul
  8. I agree with Ray. I did do the microscope test on the SC and it performed quite well. If I recall correctly almost enough for me to not use the DIY ultrasonic setup. Actually, I clean with the US rig first, then use my SC as a rinse then air dry. My biggest issue currently is static, which will soon improve. Carpet, wool socks and me shuffling my feet added to cold temps can send blue flames out my fingertips. It is now common practice for me to discharge before I touch my equipment LOL
  9. After about 1-1/2 years in storage, I've dug out my DIY ultrasonic cleaner and fired the cleaning beast back up. After 30 min cleaning in a distilled water, x-10 and 99% ipa mixture I use the record spin-clean as a rinse cycle with distilled water and just a touch of ipa. For those of you interested, there is a long thread on this when I brought it to life about 3 years ago. Included are microscope before and after.
