She's still pissed almost a decade later. Gees! Talk about holding a grudge.

Congrats on your TT. I've had mine for a little over a month and love it. It's a perfect partner w/my Luxman CL38U SE. I've been doing a lot of shopping for LP's.

The Luxman phono preamp sounds like the perfect complement to the Luxman system. Kudos to Serge!

Yep. Have a friend of 20+ years who I've not been able to visit for the past 10 as his wife is so jealous of our time together (music, stereo gear, shooting). Any time together has to be away from his place. My wife, on the other hand, looks at this time as a break for her.

Just added a small tweak to my Luxman TT. A Clearaudio Quadro Clamp (low profile). Tightened up the bass and the dynamics just jump out.

GreginNH1, Congratultions on the Luxman TT also. I saw one at the recent NY Audio Show in November and wanted one even though, like you, I don't play records much these days. I had to back off because of the price, but it's still a great-looking table. And good-sounding, too.
