I wonder what the wives and girlfriends think, when they see us salivating over pictures of circuit boards and power supplies.

“ It’s not what you think dear,  I’m  looking at girlie magazines, really, I am”

Thanks for the photos Fallguy and Sunbeam, now where did I put those magazines?

My ex used to say that she sometimes wished that she'd catch me looking at proper porn and not just pictures of amplifiers, speakers or bicycles! :$

Just this very day ordered the Katalyst upgrade for my Majik Exakt I along with a Krystal cartridge to take advantage of the Karousel Bearing offer.

My LP12 has been in desperate need for a service for a couple of years so should be one hell of an upgrade.

Unfortunately Linn due to the CV19 thing they are way behind on orders but got the order in now before 30th June saving myself £750.

That was the easy bit, now got to convince She who must be obeyed what bargain it was.

I'll be very interested to hear about your impressions of the Katalyst upgrade!

<OT>The intersection of amplifiers, speakers, and bycicles sleeps in my shed. A Panasonic DX-5000 road bike from the late 80ies. Ugraded (aren't Linnies always upgrading somthing) with some nice Dura-Ace stuff and aero-dynamic wheels.</OT> :cool:

I've just had to delay the next bicycle upgrade because of an Amp/Karousel upgrade that I just could resist 9_9

Three years ago, I scored a Panasonic DX-4000 that looks like it had been ridden once. I bought new tires, tubes, brake pads, and aero pedals for it. I have yet to do the tear down/rebuild of it. Sorry, off topic.

That’s a pretty good deal, having that loaner. I imagine your dealer is a keeper .

Finally home. After a long drive (and I`m reminded once more why I don`t live in a major city....) I came home and I have just installed my LP12 and the Akurate Exaktbox-i. I thinner the sub will have to wait for another day.

so...how does it sound? Is it better? Well...it short - yes. Very much so. More slam, more details , more Music - in short its a fantastic upgrade. Im very, very happy. To bad I have to work  tomorrow.

A couple of days has passed and I am still rediscovering my record collection.... So much better than before. 
I did 3 upgrades at once so its hard to say which one I would do first if I had to chose, but since I dont have to chose Im just going to enjoy the system. (And play with SO).
