    Good condition with the stock arm and I'll chuck in a cart so it's plug and play. No lid and collection or meet up only £500 or a swap for something interesting?

    They look like these and are of the right vintage for around £70 a piece.

    Searching for a rich vinyl like sound in digital music

    Why not? That was me 5 years ago. Now I'd choose it over cd any day. Digital is convenient but it doesn't do music like vinyl. End of. I've had/got some lovely digital bits and there's just some things digital cannot do. Unfortunately they're significant.

    Just play records. Everything else is merely playing at it.

    Terminator air bearing fitted

    Big thanks to Tim for taking the time to do this. Proper wamming that is! The arm board fits the pod absolutely perfectly which helped set up no end. The Terminator itself has so much adjustment, and being able to adjust the VTA while the record is playing helped massively with the Decca as it really does tell you when it's right (and wrong). As Tim says, familiar favourites had both of us looking at each other, often with dropped jaw at the extra details and layers embedded within some of our best known records. Lots of things unheard going on in the background, new to both of us. The Decca doesn't take any prisoners when it comes to poor pressings, but on the good stuff, wow! Next task is to load some other carts like the Audio Note and Benz onto arms (I have 4) and see if it's the cart or arm that is doing the job. But last night was one of those rare moments where you put a plan into action and it really did pay off, so huge thanks to Tim for being a part of that.

    Ah, I was referring to the Impressions which Mike kindly let me (and quite a few others) bunk with a few years back.
