    Couple of shots showing the guts of my Pioneer PL-550 taken while I fix the off/on/up/down toggle.
    Bloody thing snapped off ages ago but I've finally decided to get some polymorph in there.

    Ahhhhhhh and breathe. I've finally gone and done it, I am physical media free.
    The new, low energy consumption, green system is as attached.
    Tablet or phone into passive into T amp into Leaks.

    While the vinyl thing was awesome my OCD type craziness couldn't handle it.

    I've always touted simple systems as das beste and they don't get muxh simpler than this.

    Won't hurt the electricity bill either!

    Thanks to spotify and dawg I've access to pretty much any tune I might wish to hear.

    I'll change the amp to an sa-98, remove its volume pot and change a couple of caps but thats it folks, es finito.

    Yup, cheers Grant.
    I shall be tweaking the interface between my phone/tablet and the passive (looking at a Chinese made bluetooth receiver at the mo) but this is me entering the carpark and looking for a spot, the ride is nearly over.

    Just wanted to say thanks again Andrew, I love the Pioneer. If you really can sit back and enjoy the music without messing, modding, changing, your a better man than me, ive been trying to do that for a long time, ive had long spells away from it all but I keep falling off the wagon.
    Modified SB Receiver, SB Touch, Schiit Gungnir Multibit, AVI Lab Series S21, Custom Speakers, Modified Rega RP3. Pioneer PL550 (thanks Andrew) Various TDA1541 CDP's, too much shit I dont use to list.

    My pleasure man. It went to a couple who clearly love music and in particular a dude who knows his shizzle and it will be well cared for and appreciated.

    Yep I've found the pot of gold now I've just got to sort the spoon out.

    The pre and speakers are staying and I've a basic spotify/wifi receiver coming. Amplifier options are the only debate to be had.
