Thanks to Murray Johnson and Guy my turntable is now back in business. And it was a real blighter. After spending a signficant amount of time on the beast it looked fixed but Guy was not givn' up, one last shot and the dreaded dry joint manifested itself. A couple of mins and all was well.

So back home, connect it all up and off we go.

Interesting. I have become so used to CD I forgot what analogue could do. I luv it !!! but I can see how others may like the tighter, sharper (stiff) sound of CD. But to relax and fall into some music then vinyl works a treat.

Now Jen's out for the next 4 hours, the TT is spinning well, the stylus give a quick vibratory clean, valves at the ready and warmed up, and speakers all ready to go.

See you later chaps....

Ta, The TT is Voyd 0.5 Reference with SME V and Audionote Io II.

I'll organise some piccies when I am back from a short EU sojourn. Mr Adams was in rude health and doing very well. Told me about his current projects with at least 2 TT manufacturers.

CD is certainly interesting BUT it does not have the tonal range and things like die-away fades from cymbals (CD does it but not as convincingly). The tone on bass instruments is excellent. However, my relaxing xould be your boring.....

Get a Decca :nerd: then get it rebuilt and retipped by Expert Pickups in Ashtead with a fine line stylus. Then be very very amazed :nerd:.

No cantilever to worry about and unless you poke about underneath it it is unlikely you will ever knock the stylus accidentally

Of the TT. Not just some random picture. Just thought I should clear that up...
OK when I get back from Vienna. It is sunny and 33C here, phew what a scorcher. I'll take a few of the TT and the Macs on wobbly quadraspire stands.

I use an Audionote transformer set up AN2 I think. Straight into the Mac may look at alternatives to the Mac as its good but not the best.
