  1. Thanks, The switch came with the Valhalla. Do you know the length of the stand offs?
  2. I am a new(ish) Linnie, I bought an old LP12 as I have always wondered about them, it had no arm and the original psu, I bought a Valhalla for it, also pre loved. My question is can the Valhalla fit any LP12 and is there anything else that needs to be done to the TT for it to operate correctly? I have not begun yet just in case. The arm I will be fitting is a GH228 Unipivot.

    Define a "Classic"?

    This is a classic. First produced in 1962 I think.
  5. This was the last bike I owned. It would kill my hips and back these days.
  6. Yeah, but way out of my price range.
  7. Thinking of getting back into it again, looking at KTM 390 Duke.

    Class A watts. And Pass vs Sugden vs Krell

    I have just moved from a Copland CSA29, 85watts class AB to a DiyAudio Pass Labs M2X at 25 watts class A. I never thought I would replacee the Copland I loved it that much but had always liked the idea of a pre/power setup, so I built a pair. THe M2X although less powerful goes loud enough for my listening, but the detail and dynamics are just such a step up, I could hardly believe it. The Copland is heavier than the M2X but doesn't get any where near as warm, the M2X dissipates 160 watts all the time, you can feel it from a metre away.
