    Thanks Rab, still got your cartridge and it's a match made in heaven with this sut. I'm committing heresy by going into the 834p deluxe direct.
  6. Selling due to a downsize. Used with a Transfiguration phoenix for a good few years, provides a clean, holographic, wonderful sound. £675 via BT/PayPal gift Thanks for looking!

    Phase and stuff

    Cheers Serge! Putting my mind to rest as usual I suppose it only matters when the speakers are connected out of phase and going through the kit doesn't matter?

    Phase and stuff

    Hi! None of my ear kit is labelled on the phono connectors. They are also the same colour. This isn't an issue when I connect the phono up as I just match top to top and bottom to bottom on the interconnect. But it got me thinking when I was reassembling my kit after a spring clean. My SUT isn't labelled left/right or top/bottom. I just had to play a test record and find the channels reversed which I sorted. My question is, how do I know, and does it matter if the connection is the correct phase through the chain from turntable to amplifier. Would it matter if it was crossed over but still playing correctly through both channels? You get me? Edit: ok I've rechecked my SUT and it's clearly labelled in/out and red/white, but then my phono input is just both black and unlabeled apart from IN obviously, and neither is the amp, or tonearm cable.

    Same old! I can't remember the last time I bought anything, probably the hashimoto sut a couple years ago.

    Faulty Quad 99 tuner. Repair ? Ditch ?

    They're about £150 on eBay at most so you could possibly just get it looked at by someone local instead? My last service for a 99 preamp (that came from a dealer!) was £129
