        With the Klipschorns I have in the shop vinyl and tubes are the way to go, everything else sounds harsh and I've tried both solid state amplification and have a Marantz CD player that is "supposed" to sound more like tubes. The speakers don't hide anything, bad recording you hear it. Awesome punch of a midrange drum you feel it.

                      Since you all are talking about old machines, anyone still have a typewriter, mechanical or electrical?

                            Did go for a little putt with the Fargo, easier to downshift without the clutch. No syncros.
