    Alan's system sounded excellent that day , and yes I'm a big fan of the 57s .
    It never ceases to amaze me when I see what can be done with the Lenco GL75 .
    Alans is a beauty mate. The plinth, feet and super Lyra cartridge really make it sing!

    Possibly too coarse an adjustment to stay with but worth a try?

    @Brian, yes you were here that day

    Do you know how much the mono Khozmos are Alan?

    The Lenco could be brought on even further with a decent external PSU and tachometer feedback system like this one :-

    The massy plinth does help alongside careful attention to coupling. Numerous arms will fit straight into the Lenco top plate.

    I think Alan was thinking of an external PSU and tachometer -SOTA are going to manufacture the Roadrunner and Eagle again I think.
