    yup, this has been quiet. nothing much going on here audio wise. look forward to your visit brian.. seriously considering doing away with vinyl, as it gets little use these days. shame as its so good. need ali to fit some new pots in the psu unit. thats all thats wrong with it, and its surprisingly clean.

    Still one of the prettiest decks around imv. Works well too
    Hmmm, looks like your Indian spice cupboard needs refilling . . .
    Current kit :
    Music library (FLAC) on IMac or streamed via Qobuz. Fed wirelessly to Raspberry Pi / Allo Digione and into Lyngdorf digital amplification. This handles room correction and drives a pair of Quad 2905 electrostatics.

    Everything has its time? I came to same conclusion, after the LPs had sat here untouched for (at least) 10 years! They went to a friend withRecord shop (his pension?) followed by my 'Custom' Rock +Merlin. The CDs only get played in the car......I think of them as 'Hard copy/Reserve' in case the HDD fails! Though I haven't ventured into Blu-tooth etc, so need to catch up?

    Yes. When I bought it, I thought "Why does all hi-fi have to be boring black boxes?". So I got a spray-painter friend to (literally!) give it some sparkle! He added the decoration himself. Max T liked it when I showed him.

    It's still somewhere in our community.
    I've only got 3 LPs left. 'The original cover 'Catch a fire' by Bob Marley ('Zippo' cover!)Being left in my will to a friend.
    Santana's triple album, 'Lotus' that unfolds and unfolds across the room!
    John + Yoko 'Wedding Album' -apparently worth a lot.
    And.......a Julio Iglesias picture disc!!

    Enough to trip you out there Grant, I wouldn't fancy putting one of them whilst half cut, some damage could be done there.
    A very nice system btw bet it sounds as good as good as it looks!

    Lol. Hope not
    Just been trying out my new tonearm set tool. Works really well with the geodisc. Gets it spot on. The trouble with geo is following the raised line all the way bang on to centre of the tonearm base pivot. This makes it a breeze.



    PS. I was a little out before using my eye alone.
