    I'm well pleased for you Mister Gong - the new amp looks very serious and purposeful!

    But do you think it's time for the neighbours to get some rest from the snare drum or do you have equally serious sound-proofing ...

    Really great looking system there.

    That Sanusi amp looks purposeful.

    Nice to see you pop in Rich, hope your ok mate?

    Yes Rob, your system is rather awesome now, can't believe how much work and expense must have gone into your turntable set up. Expect it sounds superb!

    Thanks Jimbo,

    When I joined here in early 2011, the whole Techie seen was buzzing and just got hotter and hotter. At one point it felt like the epicentre of modding techies - It out-numbered other threads / posts by a fair bit I'd say.

    As a result I was hooked, from a few KAB mods to the Mike New bearing that was it. The further along I went, I knew that I wasnt going to compromise which meant the mods I felt would take to a serious level were done one and sometime two at a time.

    I've sold all manner of stuf, saved, a bit of juggling here and there and a little credit card action from time to time and fi ally bingo !!!

    - It's taken years but I wouldnt change a thing, it's been worth every penny and all the pain that goes with the territory of a self confessed audiophile - you cant put a price on 'this'

    Where I'm at now is a dream and labour of love realised - The techie is just one component amongst all the other parts that has brought it all together, The Cadenza B and this amp without question have been the icing on the cake - Its 23.13 on a Sunday night and I should have swithced system off some time ago as I have an early start for work in the morning - enough said

    No flies on you Olli mate, I wondered when someone was going to ask that.
    I still have the Legend 919, it's with Angus for a job on the Phono selector switch which needs replacing.
    As you can imagine these parts are proving harder and harder to get hold of so I've been without music for a few months hence bagging the Alpha 707 DR.

    So what to do when the 919 returns

    Indeed! I'm sure it won't be too hard to move on if you choose.
