    SP10 advice

    For plinth recommendations, I'd go for Panzerholtz. Phonomac build my SP10 the plinth is a revelation. Incredibly dense, inert and I get no nasty vibrations through it. It's wall mounted but even so, it's a fantastic material. Tonearms...... I had the Alphasson HRS100 and really didn't rate it. It got mushy on the detail with tracks that pushed the envelope. I was never convinced by it and again, Phonomac loaned me a modified AT1010. The Alphasson was sold and I bought a Phonomac AT1010. I'm now on the MK6 version of the arm and I can honestly say it's the best arm I've come across. I have been told multiple times that there must be been a problem with the Alphasson if an AT arm beat it. It passed a full health check when I had a din connection fitted to remove the "dull as ditchwater" VDH captive cable. The AT in standard form was better than the Alphasson. That's my view on it anyway, and that of two other people I know, who have sold an Alphasson in favour of the AT1010. We must all of had a dodgy Alphasson 😉 oxide symbol

    It developed a much more defined mid band. Bass had very tight "kick" to it and cymbals really shimmer. It's a very good sound. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Wired with silver tonearm wire. It's not perfect in looks as it was my first attempt at a rewire. It does work perfectly and was great to compare the benefit of silver v copper wire. It's now surplus to requirements as I have rewired my other wand so I don't need two silver wired wands. Bargain £80 inc P&P Also worth mentioning is on of the cartridge clips is out o shape slightly so I'll include a new set of silver clips with heat shrink. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wanted - Mission 774 Tonearm

    I have two wands, I rewired one with 99.999% pure silver and one with KAB Superflex tonearm wire (imported from USA) there was a huge difference in SQ from the 40year old stock wire. Ps the KAB Superflex sounds the most Tonally neutral IMO and for £25 what you got to lose !!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wanted - Mission 774 Tonearm

    I only have one paddle which I presume is the smallest one. I use STP silicon from halfords. If you're near I'm happy to donate an amount for free. It can be thinned if need be. I have just enough in the trough so the paddle "traces" the top of the silicon and that seems to sound the best to my ear. All these things are based on personal opinion though and guys like Walpurgis over on art of sound have way more knowledge than I do and I only know what I know because of those guys. It you google "Mission 774 OG rewire" you'll find loads of info connected to that too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
