Diane the decorator #2

Now saying that Diane has no idea about the cost of getting good music reproduction, would be the biggest understatement ever...

While I was away at the Bristol show thurs fri , Diane has done some more "imagining "...

Here's me driving back Sat evening up the M42 thinking about if I should change My Ittok LV II for a t2" arm ...

Diane on the other hand had taken a picture of my rack and imagined the "look" of the parts making the sum...

The conclusion....

The only thing on display will be a record player...   here it comes!!!!!...but not mine.....

My beloved 40 yr old modified LP12..  which I think,, it just looks so simple and yet does what it does..vintage yes!!! ..

It won't have the "look"!!!!!!!!

Anyway ...My Diane, the lady who will pick a car on colour alone and has a minimum of 6 lipsticks by Clarins in her handbag has found .2

.

A SME Model 20 ..because its black but a bit of a bugger to dust..

Clearaudio emotion  .cos its  clear but  you'd have to dust underneath...

Well those moments when you just can't stop the giggles until you let out a belly laff are not that often...but I just couldn't help it..

Good news ..the linn can go in the man cave..not "prime position" in the house ..and I dont mean for the sound space...

Oh and she would like a Roy Harpaz upright turntable in her study...

Yeah !!!!!! You look it up..

it"ll blow my mind what's going round in Diane's head ..that's why she's such good fun...

I'm a guy who has never been stressed in his life....

I'm now on valium and tramadol cos I'm waiting for the best of 3..

Kindest regards from the psychiatric couch.

Hmm.

I've been married for 27 years.  I've had my LP12 for 31 years.  Loyalty is important.:nerves:

Great story. Keep it coming. And avoid buying those two t/ts but you probably know that already. The SME 10 is good though.

Yep, but she doesn't understand forums (or hifi), but then again, neither did the previous two 🤣🤣

Jane got upset when I was considering selling my 845 valve monoblocks and insisted I put the large bass speakers back in place (18" drivers) after I tried them as open baffles .......I'm very very lucky 😁😁😁😁😁

I think you're just trying to make us all jealous...

That said, my gorgeous piano gloss KEF R3 are only there because my wife declared the Q700 were simply not good looking enough!!!

Looks great! Diane knows what she’s doing. Will she mind a nice thick rug though...?

Because I make turntables, I rarely keep the same one in the living room for more than a week, drives Sally nuts :)

Looks a bit hotel for me. Hard floor and a central mirror? Can’t imagine that sounding too good 😕

Much better room than clutter or somewhere that looks like a country pile
