If we can be serious for a second or three.

I didn't get the instructions that Hi Audio aparently provide with all their arms, so had to make do with the useless one page thing that Hadcock send. I put the thing together, fiddled with it until Everything lined up and looked level and marvelled at how bloody good it sounded.

However you see all over the web people complaining how it took them 3 nights to set up etc even with the good instructions.

Have I done something wrong you reckon or am I just a genius :)

We were, I got passed that bit :)

Rudolph, it sounds different to the Origin Live arm and to my ears a lot better.

Records that were difficult to listen to before are now good. Records that were good are now great. I'll not go off on one too much as I've not managed to play it loud and go through all the records I want yet but early impressions are very good indeed.

ant post us a photo of it in action. when i went from a rega 300 to the sme v there was an improvement, but not a £1000 worth of improvement.

it changed the sound exactly as the hadcock has changed yours.

there is about 500 quid between the two arms and I'd say it was 500 quids worth of difference for sure.

Imaging is incredible, sounds more agile etc. but like I say want to really listen before saying too much.

I must say I thought the build quality was toilet though

Lovely sounding tonearm, but like you say, build quality is pants...

I demmed one at Walrus which was held together with blu-tack - they said it was the only way of making theirs work... I definitely had trouble with it, wot with all the wobbling and my cack-handed-ness!
