  1. Deccas have virtually no vertical compliance, but conversely they have high lateral compliance.
  2. Hadcock is the best affordable arm for a FFSS MkIV. I've used mine (C4E, Garrott Gold & Maroon) in Hadcock, AT1100, Schroeder Model 2 & Reference over the years. There's a thread on Audiogon here.
  3. How about a pair of Paul Coupe's Reference Fidelity Component Raptors? Many people know Paul for his Tannoy external Xovers and his speaker refurbishment, but he also makes some damn fine speakers too. The Raptors are just above your budget, but a similar speaker from a mainstream manufacturer would cost significantly more than these.
  4. DSOTM copy was about the same cost as a Harvest first pressing LP in VG condition with inserts and poster.
  5. I have 5 machines - Studer A820 and Otari MTR12 (bequeathed to me by Stewart Emmings Lodgesound), 2 x Sony APR 5000 series and a Studer A807/II. This is my reason for owning R2R - the ability to listen to tapes like this - a 15 IPS 1/4 inch copy of the Jugoton distribution master for DSOTM on Stewart's MTR-12. Collecting masters becomes addictive and takes up a huge amount of space, as well as draining ones wallet (link as the BB code doesn't work)
  6. Live gig is always number 1 But then it's tape all the way - just like this
  7. Without indeed!! Corrected now. Thank you
  8. No vinyl enthusiast should be without a wet vacuum RCM.
  9. This is now double boxed and ready to ship. Taking up room in our home. Hence price reduction to £250 inc UK shipping
  10. I have just checked and shipping in the UK by UPS would be £20
  11. About 10 years of very intermittent use.
  12. After many years of use, I have just replaced my Moth RCM with a vintage Keith Monks MkII. The Moth is in full working order. There is a cleaning brush included. The velvet strips are a bit worn, but these are easy to replace. I did buy some spares, but I've put them somewhere so safe that I can't find them at the moment. Please note that there is no lid. Happy to demonstrate. Collection from Cheltenham GL53 preferred, but I will ship at buyer's cost (this may not be cheap as it's quite heavy). New price is £550, so how about less than half price at £250 collected (shipping extra)
  13. If they are the original V1 Stirlings with the T27 and B110 drivers, they are fantastic. They made very few pairs - all with serial numbers starting 88XXX to suit the oriental market. I bought a pair when they came out and still have them.
