    Default Some kit changes at Audio Al listening room

    Decided on a shake up of kit and a dust

    Out go the JBL L1's / MS 737 / Ram 400 / ESL57 ( all into the store room ).

    In come the Ruark Tallisman 2 / Focal Electra 927 BE Ltd addition / Braun L130 / JBL L80T on massive Target stands
    These are the hernia inducing stands

    Pro Ject RPM 10 fitted with a Goldring Eroica XL MC cart ,I also fitted upgraded cart tags from Michell engineering , Upgraded Speed box power supply and a Ground it base, Through the Ortofon ST80 se Sut , Into the Albarry AP11 pre then into the Albarry M608 mono blocks , Hitachi RCA's

    It's like a well stocked demo room

    Not a fan of Project TT's but I do like the look of the RPM 10 for some reason.

    Bet it all sounds superb

    I think the name is pants , Who would buy a pro ject , I would want a finished item

    The quality is good , carbon fiber arm , Weighty platter acrilic , dead inert , It is magneticly elevated , the speed box is adjustable by 1 thenth of a rpm as you can see and is very stable , no variation , Feet are isolated , The digital moter is very good as well
