    Speed Box is supposed to be an excellent product.  It keeps the motor running at the perfect speed which can reduce the wow and flutter.  Many people noticed a significant upgrade when using it, particularly if you have motor hum.  I've debated getting this for a while, but my TT is very quiet so hasn't been a priority.  This is all along with the obvious speed switching benefit.  

    Kevin - did you notice audio improvement?  Father's day is coming up so maybe I'll have the wife pick me up one..
    I love mine. Makes it super easy to switch speeds, I’m not sure if it gives you a lot of increased audio improvement, but you do get perfect speed.

    Just upgraded to a Technics SL1200 MK5 with a Nagaoka Mp-110 cartridge running through some AudioEngine A5s. Pondering a few KAB upgrades - otherwise it's a great upgrade from where I was at!

    How is the bass response from the A5s?

    Thankful for my space and tunes. My “Wall of Sound” is ever rotating except for the two Beatles albums.

    That's awesome! Something tells me we would get along well.

    How do you like the Dual TT?

  • I love the Dual! It was a little finicky to get setup and going once it was shipped but it feels so solid and sounds so good. I’ll probably upgrade to JICO SAS when needed.

    I wasn't looking to swap pieces in and out of my setup - I just wanted to get a super solid mid-fi setup that will last the next 25 years or so without a ton of maintenance!

    So I spent some money to find pieces in the best looking condition and then had them restored. If you look at the 1010, it still has factory plugs in the mic and headphone inputs - it was a true grail find.

    So so much fun to listen to music again - my wife and I don’t even watch the news anymore just throw on an album.

    That all sounds similar to my experiences too.

    Those old Dual tables are rock solid after proper service. My 1019 is still going strong and sounds like a million bucks. 

    Thanks for sharing!

    Are you guys using WIFI speakers?  I need to upgrade my setup and read that the WIFI speakers are much better than bluetooth.

    I'm so picky, it will be a long time before I go with wireless.  But if I were, I'd try Dynaudio wireless.  They are expensive, but they are a very, very good speaker company. But you are paying for an integrated amp with the speaker.

    No wireless speakers for me either. They would certainty make setting up a surround sound system easier, though.

    Do yourself a favor and upgrade to the HPM 100 (200w version) and you will happy.

    I paid more for a pair of Martin Logan 16's and the HPM's blow them away.
