    I would strongly recommend changing the arm, if that is too much, just check the existing arm “V” blocks are in good order and replace if not - it should cost pennies. Also make sure the motor is lubed and set up properly, loads of info on Lenco Heaven. Have fun, you may find yourself drawn to the dark side.
  2. Numbers can be deceptive, even if you can only hear up to 14k, you are only missing half an octave or so from what your 16 year old ears could detect.
  3. The Psvane T2s I found to be the least "valvey" of the various valves that I have tried, with a very clear and detailed sound. The Genelex Gold Lions just seemed to pull everything together into a believable presentation with loads of dynamics and although they weren't as overtly detailed, nothing was missing. Difficult to describe. I use an Audio Note Kit 1 by the way.
  4. Just my personal experience, and it will depend on the synergy of the valve with your own amp, but of all the valves listed that I have tried, the EH Gold was the most dull and lifeless. I used Psvane T2 300Bs for ages and then tried the Genalex Golden Lions on a whim - they were amazing. YMMV. Have fun trying!
  5. No remote app, and doesn’t integrate with Audirvana (which Qobuz and and Tidal do). Shame, since I have Amazon Prime. I have also read that the HiRes element doesn’t work well with anything except Alexa devices - not exactly HiFi! Close but no cigar.
  6. Misleading and irrelevant, I can’t see a single mention of the Heresy mk4 in this thread, it references the rp600m!
  7. Works well with USB from a PC or laptop if you have one spare.
  8. Bit of a follow up to this thread. I did a LOT of investigation and ended up with a Chord Qutest!!! Quite a bit more than I was planning to pay, but I figured I would probably end up with one anyway, so I might as well save myself the agro' of all the buying and selling in between. I have to say I am one happy bunny. No regrets. Thanks for all the suggestions
  9. Be careful not to use Jif or anything with an abrasive in it, it might end up worse than when you started!
  10. I should have added that I have tried a variety of Unipivots over the years and none sounded as good as the Rega with the Decca (Super Gold) to my ears. I have now "converted" it to a 12" arm and it sounds even better (it was on show at last years Kegworth in the Lenco room). You might want to add a little weight to the headshell to help with balance and absorb some of that energy. As always with the line contact and eliptical Decca's, I have found that keeping the stylus clean and using max tracking force is critical. Of course you may find otherwise
  11. Works absolutely fine in a RB300 on a Lenco.
  12. Just sitting back, chilling and enjoying the show. Let's face it, it's not exactly a challenging drum part!
  13. To the best of my knowledge they were developed using Quad 405's. I use them together and they are a nice combo.
  14. The love child of Davros and a Focal Sopra.
  15. I'm sure I am teaching you to suck eggs, but have you tried playing with the filters on the Hugo?
