  1. Best owned; Michell Orbe/SMEV/ Lyra Helikon.

    EAR/Yoshino 802/ 509 Monoblocks.

    Trichord research CD transport/Pulsar dac.

    ProAc Response 2S/ Target R2 stands.

    This sounded superb however could have sounded a lot better in a bigger room l feel.

    Which leads us to today;

    Maxxed out Michell Gyrodec SE/Audionote Arm3v2/Hana ML.

    Art Audio Vinyl One phono stage ( Definitive Audio upgrades).

    TEAC PDH-600 CD player ( used as a transport ) Audionote 0.1x dac.

    Vincent SV-237MK Integrated amplifier. ( Poncy valves upgrade.)

    ProAc Tablette 10  ( The soundstage these throw is the size of Havering):notworthy: or Audionote ANL/LX loudspeakers.

    This system stops me from doing things l should be doing, incredibly musical and involving probably as the speakers are well suited to the room- Love it.:rockin::geek::)

    Transit bolts must be removed!  Pull machine out.. At back of machine..if there are four shiny bolts?  Unscrew them..these bolts hold the drum in place during transit and must be removed before use..

    THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This would be one of the first things an engineer would look at.... also ( a long shot) check your waste pipe is working ok, not kinked and that water is draining away from it ok.

    DHL sent me a text update this morning to advise that delivery will be this Thursday! 😤

    Seems the retailer missed the collection window on Friday! 😠

    Oh well.... more time to absorb the current sound character of my system before adding the DAC. 

    Boo!

    response 2.5 anyone?

    Yes? l had a pair for a little while- loved them.:notworthy:

    Also had the Response 2S and they were the one speaker l kick myself for letting go.:wall:

    Use Tablette 10's in my little room now.:rockin:


  5. The big green ones- think they are K75 or something if l recall really like them as l have two amplifiers ( Virtue Audio Sensation) one with the Rusky's and the other with Clarity Caps, both sound good however quite different, l was given them to try as l was going to get some Mundorf caps howeve,r was 'advised' to try the Russian PIO- all l had to do was pony up for installation ( and they just about fitted:D) and glad l did, oh and they produce a large soundstage too.

    Sorry to be a tad vague, it was a long time ago and l know naff about amplifiers.... only l know these Caps are great for little money.

    # All in my system and tastes.:geek:


  6. Purchased 'Cream live' and 'Cream live 2', Hawkwind- 'Warrior on the edge of time' -all LP's and a Vaughan Williams CD box set.

     2 x Mark Grant DSP 2.5 mains cables and a Sovtek 12AX7LPS- which is very nice sounding valve for buttons.

    Justified these purchases by saving fuel money from not going to work.....:D

    Perhaps one speaker is in Isleworth and one is in San Francisco?

    That would provide one hell of a wide  soundstage!:geek:

    My Audionote ANK/LX (Palisander :love:) l have to bring  around 2' into the den, as putting them in the corners of my 12' x11' room make them boom, they are well isolated ( TA Podiums and Soundcare superspikes… getting them into the room as described then have them firing around 2' from the listening positioning gives nice imaging and solid, tune full bass- however on occasion the ProAc Tablette 10 l use images a tad better- really should get the room acoustically treated, however having too much fun listening to music.:geek:

    Also had the ANJ/SPE here on home demo and they were a definite no as these would have to come out of the room- other than that they sounded lovely.:geek:

    All that said every room has different  effects on different  speakers- good luck.

    Thanks @speedskater.  Why do corners affect stereo imaging?  Does this mean Audio Note speakers don't image well?
