    Default Pulixx's system

    Hi guys,
    I would like to use this thread as an upgrade gallery as I just started with my hifi system. Not that I didn't want to do so earlier. It's just I didn't have enough money first, then our constant moving was a block and then Matsushita shut down Technics manufacture. But finally I managed to buy an almost new MK2 for a fair price (did see better deals, but not local ones).

    So the first pic (inspired by this one) shows my two hobbies together, as the living room is still not finished:



    As you can see, it is a stock MK2 with Shure M97xE, but already a new cartridge and Achromat are ordered. This website did help me with a lot of decisions and inspired me in upgrading this TT, so more upgrades are to come. Later, when everything will look nicer and will be in place, I will post pics of the second TT (AR EB 101 + Linn Basik + Linn Adikt) and the rest of the system (still without speakers, using just headphones for now).

    Cheers,
    Pavel

    Hi Pavel and thanks for posting this ...........err.....unique picture!
    Would you mind starting a new thread in the Welcome section in order to introduce yourself to the community. This is a requirement for all new members. Tell us a little about yourself, your gear (past, present & future if possible) and your taste in music.
    thanks a lot.
    That's a great matching pre & power amp by the way! (Did you know the power amp was on it's side & one of the handles is missing from the front?)

    You are not familiar with the 'Gas' pre-amp range then? That is a Gas Mark 4

    No worries, I'm perfectly fine with that. I was afraid you'd think, I'm making fun of this community with that pic
    Achromat arrived today, cartridge coming soon...can't wait!

    Pavel, sell the cooker and buy a Krell, then you can have the very best of both worlds...
