    Speaker noise when tapping turntable??

    Sounds like that you have done the best you can there 👍🏻 Other than what I said above, it’s difficult to know what to suggest without hearing the noise... phonostage? Gain set too high? If you have one...

    Speaker noise when tapping turntable??

    Firstly, a turntable is one big resonator if not properly supported or isolated... any tapping of the deck will feedback to the arm and inevitably the cartridge. This worsens when the volume is higher of course.. what deck is it and how do you isolate it and how far from the speakers is it?

    What's yer bits'n'bobs?

    Thanks for that 👍🏻 I’m just about to order the TDB8’s... not that my Rega’s are not up to it but eventually will have two systems so will decide which go where. 21 day return so its worth the punt.. I shall post when I have them

    What are you listening to right now?

    Played it earlier on original vinyl hence remembering how old it was 👍🏻

    Was an extremely political album which you like or dislike but it woke up many artists to the world of expression..

    I was 15 years old when the Wall hit.. the concert was awesome and truly memorable, one of my first if you exclude having to accompany mother to a Cliff Richard concert lol.

    I know it’s not directly a two channel subject but certainly a two channel playable piece of history from 1979 Happy 40th anniversary to the Wall!

    Krell ksa 100 mk 2

    KSA50 is in my top three amps of all time 👍🏻 And one of the best stand alone heaters too 😜 brilliant amp but keep it in tip top serviceable condition and it will reward every time

    I’m no fan of Naim as a whole but have owned a few of their amps but I do think there is a synergy with Neat and Harbeth. I don’t think Arcam will reward with the same dynamics as Naim

    Hi, Neat work very well with Naim amps.. look at used Naits.. - 5i or XS if your budget stretches however I am extremely impressed with the amp I have at the mo, Rega Elex-R. Nothing like the older Regas and it’s extremely well balanced in sound and can deliver a pretty good punch when required. A tad over your budget used, around £700 but well worth it imo.
