    Trust me the temptation to do it as we speak is worse than resisting scratching a very intense itch

    But, Mrs just brought out a lovely homemade lemon cake, which she knows I like, fresh cream, card and a bottle of Sparkling Shiraz, another of my faves ....

    Also, I always set-up in the day when the sunlight fills the room, so I can see grid lines etc etc properly - I'm anal about set up and getting on as well

    Right guys we have lift off !!

    Been nearly 5 months the SP-10 has been sat on the rack, doing nothing but looking pretty, what with one thing or the other.

    At long last everything is done and the first album has just gone on.

    First I'm hearing it so I'm having a listen, letting the stylus warm up etc, fine tuning will follow, probs tomorrow as Mrs not long gone up.

    At this stage, just very glad to have it playing tunes at long last.

    Initial thoughts are sounds emitting are good, very neutral but still very early days.

    I sense some bedding in is going on, the Yannis Cable is brand new etc and more tunes and fine tuning needs to be done - at least we're up and running

    I'll be back..............

    Absolute neutrality, metronomic, timing and pace, system sounds quieter -am i making sense

    nothing but the music comes through

    Steely Dan - both Goucho and Aja sounded great, then Bob Marley and the Wailers Natty Dread album again absolute neutrality, perfect pitch and just the music ! - live and even, can really hear the I Threes doing their thing on this one, there's a sense they are 'doing' their parts, being recorded. This was their first album with Bob, providing backing harmony vocal, after Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer had moved on....

    Sounding superb and just a few hours in, so much infinite info and detail coming through, Bobs expresses, pronounces, phrasings, albums I've played much of my life and know.....even more revealed...... live, recorded music right here and pronounced or is that fully protracted on 'Lively Up Yourself' as i type, serious master tape sound to this one - wow !!

    You have my word that this is fabulous.

    Two more from Natty Dread then i have to get to bed, working from home tomorrow but I'm elated, heaven knows I've been had the pain, it's been a long long time getting to this point ...
