  1. Two soggy spaniels and two smug cats. Spot the hierarchy.
  2. I've also had some good valves from Langrex.
  3. I used to have the Mastersound 845's and they really are superb. I sold them to fund the purchase of my Conrad Johnson 350. It was an itch I had to scratch but I would be more than happy if I still had the Mastersounds. Personally I found the combination of them with the matching preamp a bit too cosy for my tastes but partnered with a CJ pre (which is a bit leaner) they were fantastic. The 300b monos are meant to be pretty special too. Euan
  4. Kondo Kagura monoblocks Kondo G1000 preamp Kondo GE 10 Phono Some massive pair of JBLs from Kenrick A full Kondo silver loom of cables. My current turntable and tonearm and a Dynavector XV-1T cartridge or maybe an Air Tight Opus. (or both.) Dream big. Aim high.
  5. I think you're alone now...

    Pet Hates !!

    "Should of," "Would of," "Could of." "Back in the day" really gets my goat. Oh, and that bloke on the BBC news that stands outside the Houses of Parliament" that shouts "No Brexit!". Oh and people with wonky pictures hanging on their walls. I just have to straighten them.

    Wild Garlic

    After the mild spell it is running rampant around here. So, I picked some this morning and turned it into a pesto with walnuts, parmesan, lemon zest and cold pressed rape seed oil. I just had it for lunch stirred into some pasta. Food of the goods.

    Instant Kwoffee

    There's only one thing worse than instant coffee and that's decaffeinated instant coffee.
  9. Its a manufacturer's video for goodness sakes. They (Townsend) sell cables (expensive ones too.) They're hardly likely to hold their hands up and say, "its a fair cop. They all sound the same" now. Are they.
  10. You sound like my wife. Spoilsport.
  11. Does your Dacmagic have a volume control? If so, how about a phono stage with a volume control and forget the preamp.
  12. I know someone that runs his with a big old Krell. Sounds sublime.
  13. Heard a full Audiopax set up in an Edinburgh show, 2004. I had to be dragged from the room. There's every chance I could still be there listening to it now had I been left alone. Truly memorable.

    Help on phono stage.

    I'm with Rabski. Could you have nudged the tracking force or have the arm riding a bit too high?
