So many nice items to choose from...
« on: 21 Dec 2012, 08:31 am »
Hi Herbie and all Audio Circle members.
I went thru your website.
WOW ! You certainly have a wide choice of products.
(I sure hope most of them are Made in USA ?)
My question is the following:
What would you recommend for each of the following audio components
I have or will have within a year or two.
Rega P3
Rega Apollo CD
Decware SE84C+ EL84 SET tube amplifier
V1 GR Research speakers. (Temporarly on wheels)
I have an IKEA component stand on wheels.
My listening room is as per the picture below:

I can buy locally (Vietnam) at very cheap price marble slate
(If that can help).
Waiting for your suggestions.

Hi. All Herbie's Audio Lab products are made in the U.S.A. Product descriptions and recommendations on our website are straightforward and you just about can't go wrong. For the components listed, I would suggest considering a set of four Tenderfoot isolation feet for each.

For tube gear, an UltraSonic SS Damping Instrument for each small-signal tube and a HAL-O III Vacuum Tube Stabilizer for each rectifier and power tube.

A Way Excellent II-2mm Turntable Mat for the P3.

Four Herbie's Threaded Stud Gliders or Giant Fat Gliders under each speaker and equipment stand in place of the wheels.

I can vouch for the Way Excellent II mat, I had one on my P5 and had some excellent results. It help static tremendously, and the sound of instruments were more natural, a little bit sharper resolution, and bass tighten up a bit.

I think a more comfortable chair might do the most for your enjoyment :thumb: .

Just bought a Herbie mat myself! Went all the way up to 3.7mm (have to adjust VTA potentially, stylus likes a bit positive)
