So I pulled the trigger and bought a Loki. It arrived this past Friday and I installed it on Saturday. Everything I've purchased lately, Music Hall MMF-5.3TT with Ortofon Blue cartridge, Lounge Audio LCRMKIII then silver upgrade, has improved the sound of my vinyl but most albums still sounded a bit sterile. Some albums sounded OK but more often than not they were meh and I know in my older systems they didn't sound that bad. It always sounded to me like the mid-range was lacking and with the AV receiver I have, Onkyo TX-876 and speakers, Klipsch RF-3II floor standers, there wasn't an adjustment for that. I never could account for why my CDs and Bluerays sounded good and my vinyl sounded so poor and I've been chasing my tail making small changes to try to make up the difference without having to do something drastic/expensive to improve the medium. Enter the Loki. I figured for $150 I didn't have much to lose by giving it a try. I installed it after the Lounge and all I can say is I'm astonished. I really didn't believe I could get such a drastic improvement in sound quality especially from something as basic and inexpensive. I adjusted all four channels on the Loki to the following positions for now; 12 o'clock being neutral on the knobs I set the Bass(20Hz) to 1 o'clock. Mid bass(400Hz) and midrange(2KHz) to about 3 o'clock. Treble(8KHZ) between 3 and 4 o'clock. At these settings it almost sounds like I have different speakers. The vinyl has just come alive like it hasn't been for years. I don't really know how to describe it other than the Loki has brought fidelity back to my vinyl that I was starting to give up hope I would ever be able to achieve again without a major overhaul. It just sounds right now. Everything is clear but not harsh. Midrange is "there" now and even the treble is smooth. YMMV but in my system it works. Even my wife, who is not a big fan of vinyl, can hear the difference and likes it which is saying allot. My vinyl life is good again.
