    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!

On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    But not to be.
