Seriously, that's a very nice bit of kit. What cart are you going to use?

e_t_m, just curious but is the "Used HiFi & Record Dealer" thing your main or secondary income?

There always seem to be big new toys showing up in your possession. Is it a case of one in and one out or do you have a warehouse?

Congrats on the EMT, looks great.

btw, the person who told you that the X-overs on the red Yamahas had been tweaked may have been "exaggerating" a little. Better terminals and different internal wiring (messy) but no component changes.

Yes i have a company here in France. Strasbourg Audio.

Yes many things come in and out but a few stay, it is my main income yes.

Unfortunately more than most part company as we're trying to buy a house here in strasbourg and they are very expensive. Its difficult as you know you can get sentimental over these things.

Re: Yamahas - i'll have to dig out my records from this sale to check!

Last time I looked Nick, the guy was still selling them on the auctions @ yahoo.co.jp - seems to have moved onto Diatone 1000's too IIRC. The info for the 'mods' was on there (although trying to work out whats being said through google translator is challenging!) - I even saw an identical red pair

doesn't seem to have any running at the minute though

Wasn't meant as a "dig", sorry if it read that way. I've been meaning to mention it to you and/or Biscuit at some point and it just popped into my head while I was writing that post.

Had a standard pair of Yamahas pass through my hands recently so did the obvious thing and popped the crossovers out to compare. The red speakers have been rewired (untidily) with what looks like silver or silver plated wire but the crossover components were identical.

I'm not complaining though as they sound lush.

Four of these in one small room was a little much, or so I was told

I'm going to keep an eye out - not sure if you remember but I posted a picture of some uber bling black and gold NS-1000's from the same chap a while ago.

I seem to remember the claim was that the mods were 'tuned by ears' by a Japanese Jazz Muso.

Shropshire Borders,
I used to use EMTs a lot in the days of working for Auntie Beeb...

Good solid pieces of kit, but imho vastly over-priced on the market at the moment. They were very capable in a studio, where build quality and reliability were paramount, but in a home environment I feel they're somewhat outclassed.

This, hovever, may be because our EMTs always had Stanton carts (you don't want to cue up or God forbid go backwards with a nice cart!), into Quad 303 pre amps, Quad powers and Spendor/Rogersspeakers, but the modded Garard 301s we also used to use sounded much more musical to my somewhat jaded ears.

Do we have a "sorry to piss on your parade" emoticon?
