As an aside note I am also considering getting some Asc tube traps for the corners if they meet the wife approval factor. Decisions decisions


I would put room treatments ahead of record weights and periphery rings as they will yield the greatest and most noticeable sonic improvements.

I would also 2nd the room treatments, ASC tube traps first. I have 4 of them in each corner. They are 16 inches in diameter by 78 inches high.

After I had the traps in the room my thoughts were that I should have made that a priority long before I got them.

Would 1 in each corner give me benefits ? Two would fit but cosmetically wouldn’t look great

Hi Guys!
I have a VPI Classic and wondered which Stillpoints LPI would work for my table. I noticed there’s a difference in ordering for different spindle lengths and I wasn’t sure which would work on the Classic. Thanks in advance!

Hmm, now I want a Stillpoints! I have the HRX record weight and Periphery ring. I could not live without the ring after using it for a while now. It flattens records and without it just seeing the cartridge wandering all over the place makes me crazy.

I went ahead and ordered one from Music Direct and it’ll be here today. I’ve been impressed with Music Direct. I just ordered it on Tuesday and I’ll receive it today. And even though I have VPI’s HRX record weight and the periphery ring. I’m like BRF, in that, I kind of like collecting the weights. I have several others. They’re just cool looking in my opinion.

Jprod,

Yes 1 tube trap in each corner would be very beneficial. If the traps are the standard 4ft tall you can order the triangle room treatments for the upper corners from another company.



Sometimes you can buy these on Audiogon at great savings. Check there 1st.
