    Your Tron is a completely different animal and shouldn't be confused with the standard unit.


    The "out of the box" Convergence would be left licking it's wounds against your Modded Tron.

    Its build quality is stunning but I feel that's where most of the budget went.

    I had it here in standard guise for weeks and just couldn't get on with it.

    Your Convergence on the other hand, would have still been here if I had the cash at the time.

    All personal opinion of course.

    I think it's worth adding that the modifications made by Allan to his Convergence are not supported by Graham Tricker (the actual designer).

    Sorry, bit of thread drift. The modded Convergence was at a Bakeoff at MCRU.

    I sold him my Garrard 301 about a year ago, and he said then that he hoped to get you to make a plinth for him.

    If so, its great to see it again, and looking so great. What a blingy arm. What is it?

    Mick, if you read this.... great job. I hope it sounds as good as it looks, and gives you what you hope for.
    It does sound good Brian especially coupled up with the Paradise Phono stage etc .we had lots of nice words about the deck and setup on the day ..Iím well pleased !
    Markís plinth is a work of art ...No you canít buy it back lol!

    Hi Micky, was there a difference between the XTC and Moerch counterweights?
    Cheers, Jeff

    No ! not in performance wise ,only in looks ..the XTC weight was designed to be easier to set up and control as I found the weights on the Moerch were prone to slip and were fiddled to set up ( for me). Mark ( divedeepdog) did the research and found the guy (John) who makes weights for Roksan arms etc .He sells them on eBay,I rung John after Mark had emailed him to enquiry whether he could make a weight for the Moerch.After some research etc that's what he came up with.I think that it's a pretty good job and so user friendly.
    I have has phone no .if you wish to make some enquiries...

    Thanks. I've been in touch with Mark on Wam and John on eBay after I saw the photo. Just thought I'd check with your experiences.
    Cheers, Jeff
