Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's Jimmy T.

It's more hip hop funk than hip hop jazz, but Kamaal Williams' new record "The Return" is super dope. They were playing it last time I was at the record store.

Re: LP120 preamp, can't you just flip the switch on the back to bypass it? I'm doing exactly that with mine, since the phono pre on my reciever is a lot nicer than the built in pre on the LP120.

The bypass on the LP120 preamp isn't a true bypass and introduces noise. Some dude did an A/B on the wav file of the same exact record pre and post removing the preamp and there was a noticeable difference.

Ah, I didn't realize that. The LP120 pre isn't causing noticeable noise for me at this time - I don't believe it is the weakest link in my current setup - but I did save that video for future reference.

I just added some storage cubes to my setup so I'm not using cardboard boxes anymore and I gained a bonus speaker stand out of the deal.
