    Default PetRat HiFi

    It all started to get serious when I got the chance to buy a new pair of these at a 'once in a lifetime' discount. I couldn't resist ...

    Tannoy Canterbury SE

    This triggered a few changes, culminating in this lot.

    EAR 534 power amplifier, Shindo Aurieges L preamp, Leben RS30-EQ phono stage, Rega Isis Valve cdp.

    This is the current favourite TT.

    Garrard 401, Audio Note 1 arm, Koetsu Black Goldline

    Linked together with a nice A23 SUT

    Also got one of these, which is quite nice.

    Thorens TD125, Tecnoarm, Ortofon Black.

    Too many turntables! The SME10/IV is waiting for its longtime partnering Transfiguration Spirit to come back from Dom's.

    Very pleased, now.

    That really is a stunning Thorens TD125. Very nice.
    DIY is fine and dandy, but just try selling it on!

    Thanks for the kind comments.

    Nope it's a Koetsu. Yes it does look rather similar but is a different shape, sort of less 'dumpy'. Actually the SUT is specifically designed for the DL103, but for some unknown reason (considering the spec differences) it works brilliantly with the Black, too.

    Fantastic system! I love the Garrard. Do you have any thoughts on the A23 SUT? I've just acquired one myself (from a very scrupulous person) and I'm rather pleased with it.

    My gob is also smacked, and my thunder has been struck. Question: looking at this gear I suspect that digital is a four letter word?
