    I really like Jamie's Pioneer, sounds great and looks amazing. It was really good to listen to one and then the other and we had to agree there's not much, if anything between them. Poor old Jamie spends days setting his 2MB up and I get lucky on the third attempt with mine. Still, he went home with some empty cigar tins for small screws etc and a gammon joint for dinner.

    It does sound stunning and it was a real pleasure listening to it. All the work and time you put into it have really paid in spades.

    I'm really chuffed with the SR, everything is set up spot on and the cosmetics are done. It sounds absolutely brilliant, even up against Jamie's Pioneer there was nothing between them. I liked the music my LP12 produced but the SR is just better. I must say thanks to Oliver ( Bigman80 ) for probably the only available original Toshiba dust cover around. With a couple of hours spent with T Cut and toothpaste it's come up a treat and finishes the turntable perfectly.

    I'm on the lookout Geoff but I wasn't brave enough to risk going for that Russian one that's up for sale.
