    2017 will see vastly more music consumed and appreciated, I promise.
    Looks like you have 'arrived'. Well done - there are some here who are still looking for this desirable state of affairs, and have been years in the process!
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I only intend to maybe do a couple of DIY projects, as I already have all the bits. But I can't think of anything to buy because I have the system exactly where I want it.

    (unless of course a member wants to tempt me with an Aleph 3 power amp at a modest price )
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Deccas/Low output MC's/various SUT's/various arms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT/Swiss Idler jobs. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC, stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp/Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big and smaller dual concentric speakers and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Copies eh?
    Nope
    I've been building and refining these quadratic tapered expanding quarter wave transmission line speakers since I came up with them in 2006. These are another refinement.

    Here are my current ones at the Audio Talk Owston meet earlier this year:

    After hearing my TT through someone else's speakers today I'm thinking of giving up on my vinyl setup, sell it off and stream via Internet or my nas only as my speakers are just not good enough for the front end and the sound I want, can't change them for various reasons so at the moment I'm by close to giving up and downsizing it all as I feel for the money I've spent it's just not good enough, and it's the speakers that are letting the whole system down, serious thinking to be done over Xmas and I'll see what the new year brings.

    dont be getting too hasty Mike. You might regret it. But I know what you mean; it can be frustrating to get right sound, and streaming is very handy and good too. Small speakers are hard to find that do the business.

    Selling up with a system like this

    Technics 1210 Mk 5 modded with Mike New Bearing, Paul Hynes SR7-EHD PSU, Sounddamped Steel Isoplatmat, Isonoe Feet, Magna Audio Ebony armboard, Mission 774 Arm fitted with Audio Technica 33PTG II - TQ Claymore Amplifier, Firebottle Vivant Phono Stage, PMC Twenty .21 Speakers, Partington Dreadnought Stands, B&W PV1 Subwoofer,

    I thought PMC 20.21 speakers were rated

    My 2017 plans involve getting rid of every bit of equipment, cable, accessory etc that is not actually being used, and to tidy up my system and listening room.
