  2. Robin is a top bloke and this machine is absolutely beautiful. Recommended to anyone who wants to hear the best of what R2R can do.

    LongDog phono stage

    I can’t believe this is still here at £800 it’s the deal of this year so far. This stood up there with my Trilogy 907 for sound quality and entertained a house full of HiFi enthusiasts at my bake off all day. If you a looking for an MC phono stage you owe it to yourself to have a go with this Longdog.
  4. I believe it is the debut carbon,

    What's yer bits'n'bobs ?

    You need a Velvet Vortex for cleaning up your records. It will help make that SP10 really sing. 😉 where did you get the record weight? I like the look of it.
  6. My friend has a mint Project he is going to be selling soon. With cartridge fitted, carbon fibre tonearm etc. It is very good and was £350 when new. I think he was talking about asking around £175 for it. I've passed made him aware of your advert.

    LongDog phono stage

    I’ve heard it at my Bake off it’s very good indeed, and Jake is bang on there will be not much out there at this money to get anywhere near it. A Vida or 907 is going to cost twice this even used. It is a beauty.

    Homemade ultrasonic vinyl cleaner

    The custom unit is finished and on it’s way to it’s new owner. To attach to his own bath. Spent some time at the weekend making up some more motor units so I have three Velvet Vortex ready for immediate delivery. Its still fun to make these and it’s good to know forum members are enjoying super clean vinyl and superior sound quality. Last message sent to me from a recent new user. ”cleaned all my Pink Floyd, listening to Division Bell and F**** it’s good, really cleaned up mid range. Overall SQ is much improved. Now planning to clean my whole collection”
  12. Agreed with all that’s been said above. I wasn’t 100% sure about exhibiting this year but I’m so glad I did. The weekend renewed my enthusiasm for the show. It was really good sharing the room this year and that added to the experience. We loved it from start to finish. Room 106 was really good, certainly showed what ESL 57’s can do. On Saturday eve as me and Kate left your room I simply said to her. “Now that’s what a HiFi should sound like” enough said.

    LP12 custom armboard

    A while, the CAD and program post process took about two hours and and the machining took about one and a half hours. It turned out pretty good.

    DIY LP-12 plinth

    These look fantastic, really different to what is out there for LP12’s. We need to see a few more pictures of it built up. I would have thought there are a few LP12 third party upgrade specialists would be interested in these plinths.

    LP12 custom armboard

    Custom LP12 armboard to suit SME 3009. Made of 12mm corian and machined out to reduce weight to help suspension so there is not too much weight. Looks brilliant too. Shame it will be out of sight. Made on my CNC machine this morning. Quite pleased with this one.
