    • Any dentists here ? Had a large old tooth Filling replaced 6 weeks ago,  Its sensitive when biting on hard foods such as nuts seeds etc , rang the dentist roughly 2 weeks after who informed me that it can take up to 2 months for the sensitivity to go down, and that as long as there was no tingling sensation at night , she was confident the tooth would be fine . 6 weeks later the tooth is still sensitive on hard foods ? wondering if this is routine enough ?

    • Erick Urbina Toranzo‎ (RESOMASTERING) using ATC SCM50ASL Professional monitors "Can't live without my ATC's so accurate and reliable!"
      ATC SCM50ASL Professional monitors ATC, Acoustic Transducer Company, is a specialist British manufacturer of loudspeaker drive units and complete sound reproduction systems, including the relevant electronic equipment. ATC designs and manufactures the finest and most accurate of monitors in the world. ATC achieves this by designing and manufacturing loudspeaker drive units and systems to achieve levels of performance far in excess of the industry norm. ATC has kept to its aims of building loudspeakers and electronics which employ the most effective of modern engineering principles. ATC don't respond to competition, instead ATC responds to advances in technology that enables ATC to improve their products. ATC's goal is to have loudspeakers as near perfection in performance as possible by having the lowest possible distortion. ATC’s products are installed at some of the world’s most prestigious multi-channel studios and auditoria. Where ever the best is required you will find ATC.
      ATC Professional. Reference monitoring. Naturally.
      ATC Super SH25-76S HF unit used in SCM50ASL Professional monitors Building on the success of its hand-built standard tweeter, ATC has developed and manufactured an ENHANCED ‘S-SPEC’ VERSION for its flagship models. After considerable development time the “S-SPEC’ tweeter completes the rollout of proprietary drivers across every ATC loudspeaker system. Six years in the making, the new SH25-76S design is a significant technical advance for ATC and a proud achievement for Managing Director Billy Woodman and R&D Manager Richard Newman. The Woodman/Newman collaboration has ensured that both the standard SH25-76 (as fitted to the Company’s curved SCM7/11/19/40/40A models) and ‘S-Spec’ SH25-76S tweeters exceed the exceptionally high levels of performance and consistency expected of an ATC driver.
      ATC Super SH25-76S HF unit used in SCM50ASL Professional monitors The advent of the SH25-76S means that for the first time in a distinguished forty-year history, every ATC speaker system is able to benefit from complete ATC driver configurations, wholly designed and hand-built at the company’s UK development and production facility at Stroud, Gloucestershire. Now introduced on the Tower Series (SCM20/50/100/150), Anniversary Series (SCM50/100/150) and Classic Series (SCM20/50/100/150), the SH25-76S is ATC’s premium 25mm soft dome tweeter, developed with a no-compromise engineering approach in order to complement the renowned SM75-150S Super Soft Dome mid-range driver.

    • Use a small mirror sat on your platter underneath your cartridge to check cartridge allignment essentials. Check your platter is level as the Illudtrious does not have azimuth adjustment. You can do this and check vta at same time by sitting the headshell without the cartridge on top of something you know to be perfectly square/rectangular like a dice. Audiomods supply a handy little plastic cylinder for this very task.  As said a protractor of some quality is essential, the room for error is tiny. If vta looks about right then this shouldn't be critical to what you are presently hearing but can be used to fine tune final adjustment. When new i'd run a cartridge at 0.2g above manufacturer recommendation for 100hrs or so, or adjust it down periodically to check the sound. New cartridges can be etchy and trebly for first so many hours but not what you are hearing. Check loading on your phono amp if it has an adjustable setting, less ohms less brightness until too far down it gets dull. Alternatively to the above have a dealer do it, it's a knack which comes with practice and the right tools. Too many people use a new cartridge all the way through it's life without hearing it at it's best. Good luck.
    • Beautifully captured Tillman. Excellent exposure and a nice range from the white of the bird and dark shadow on the ground underneath. 
    • Great feeling and makes it all worth while, I certainly know the other side of the coin too along with the frustrating one where the coin lands on it's edge (after spending $$$ large)  Hope the elation continues for you and try to remember .... never twist on 21 Ps always wanted to try the Auditorium spk cable with the right set up. One of the almost universally praised items.
