    Default Well, where do we go from here ?

    I hope this is in the correct forum. (if not apologies) but is Analogue.

    Been running my rig on a Benz Wood for some time.

    I recently acquired a beat up Decca Gold from eBay, anyway, sent off the to John Wright (London Decca for a refurb).

    Well, what can I say when it returned.

    Never heard the like.... it trashed my £1200 Benz. Dynamics like I have never thought possible.

    I don't t know if others out there have had the same experience..... let me know???

    Yes - Deccas are rather special! I always have one set up on one of my turntables.

    Glad you are enjoying yours.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Nice reel to reel!
    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?
