  • spawned from retro di corsas quad 405 i felt this was needed to express love for all things hifi.

    deals on the bay, dream decks and amps, audio porn

  • wow. here we go. another geek willy-waver.

    Mr. Smith will be along in a moment with his Naim, his vinyl and his Rega turntable.

  • I waved my willy at an interconnect which cost £80. I think I was foolish.

  • Undoing my zip...Here we go...Meridian...swing-left...B&W Nautilus...Swing-right

  • I've got one of these; Technics semi-pro 70's rackmount madness 10 band EQ with parametric EQ on each band.

  • mmm that garrard would go nicely with my replinthed Lenco L75..... :) just needs a slatedeck.

  • I had a Garrard deck for many years - not as nice as that though! Then I had one of these - great deck:

    I have the
    SL 1310 Mk2 turntable

    SU - 9070 Pre Amp
    SH - 9010 Universal Frequency EQ

    SE - 9060 Power Amp

    SB6000 Linear phase units (Speakers)
    Also the What Hi Fi? test 1978 and Technics brochure.

    Sorry for the brag, WAC etc.

    See you at the pub sometime

  • at home I have a set of these:

    they are Sony APM-22es, which are fairly odd but sound wicked. especially considering i bought them in a charity shop for AUD$80.

    square drivers. shyeah.

    If you still have it you NEED to get it out of that cabinet and onto a solid high mass plinth - preferably whilst replacing the arm.

    It is a true Swiss classic and a real giant killer of a TT

  • ^ I'm ashamed to say that I dumped it a couple of years ago....... sigh

  • lenco make good decks i always preferred thorens in the same price bracket and reliability.

    vello has a lenco , or he did.

  • Got a lovely Rega Planar III. Had a Linn K9 but the stylus mount perished. Any one know if replacements are available or a good current alternative?

  • wow. here we go. another geek willy-waver.

    Mr. Smith will be along in a moment with his Naim, his vinyl and his Rega turntable.

    so that's a naim nait?? and a rega planner?? 3??

    used to have a naim, very nice amps, then replaced that with a mission cyrus 2, and also had a linn sondec with mission speakers.

    bloody cd's and p3's.

    always wanted to get a new set-up.

    but a mac/ipod etc and some good comp speakers, seem to take up a lot less room and be more portable.

    shame.

    p.s. nice gerrard.

  • those Rega Planar decks - you had to change the elastic band from 33 to 45 right?!

    yeah

  • My NAD C542 CD player often doesn't read discs but may or may not respond to perseverance.

    Easy fix or upgrade time?

    i'm here :-)
    the reality is i very rarely listen to music 'properly' these days and just purchased a new ipod

    fancy a better turntable but that's a few years away at the moment as i seem to be spending money on bikes, cameras and computers at the mo and the front room isn't a good shape acoustically and a bit small for the PMC's so no point going overboard on kit.

    i have a beresford dac in the front room but wouldn't mind a cheap usb/dac/headphone amp thingy for when working on the computer.

    EDIT: it a 90/92 pre power. the rega is standard apart from an acrylic platter and a sumiko blue point special moving coil. speakers are PMC tb2's

    if somebody says upgrade then ............

  • Have a Rega planar 3 turntable, Audiolab 8000a amp and some Monitor Audio speakers at my mums (in a cupboard), but these days it's headphones and the computer. Wife says no... Can't really blame her. The vinyl doesn't really 'streamline'.
    Have found myself losing interest in music beyond the radio. Probably because of the lack of a Rega planar 3 turntable, Audiolab 8000a amp and some Monitor Audio speakers...

    Mine did the same, it probably still does but has been in the attic for the last 5 years.

  • My set-up
