Serious question. Did you notice any change in musical reproduction moving from IKEA fake wood to what appears to be solid wood?

......couldn’t resist the obvious response - did the sound become more grainy 😁

Not really, I already had isolated/decoupled the TT and processor from the Besta as it acted as a big soundbox. I changed it because the Virgin box and Blu-ray player were inside the Besta and you could hear the HDD or disc tray when they were spinning, the Besta again acting as a soundbox as it had doors.

My rack is nothing special purchased from trade furniture. I removed the bottom draw to allow both power amps, you can still see the wooden runners which hate. Each shelf I had to cut envelope slots to allow cable routes from each component. It’s a pig to move to get to the wall sockets behind the unit. I brought casters a couple of months ago to fit, however I might go for something bespoke instead like hifi racks products which look really nice. The LEDs need replacing.

Thanks DVD. IIRC, Darth Vader didn’t have a dad... 😬

No he did'nt his mum states that when asked in the first episode The Phantom Menace she just found herself pregnant it must have been the midiclorens but he always wanted a dad so I thought I'd grant him his wish.
