Err..... Rather good, but am sure she will sound even better once Dave has interfered with her on Sunday afternoon. 

Hopefully after his tweaking it will not sound like a certain Bridget the Midget - Queen of the Blues :)

Just joined! Been trying to find “my” forum and tried some other forums but not found one in the same geography or that I can properly relate to yet...

Listening mainly to vinyl, my first love, but also CDs sometimes, or internet radio.

So, for analogue, a Goldring 1042 cart, RB 300 arm, Nottingham Analogue Interspace TT, Aragon 24K pre, chord cobra, Aragon Iridium monoblocks, Esoteric Audio speaker cabling - Premier and Signature (biwired), Usher Mini Dancer 1 diamond DMD, Mordaunt Short sub.

Add a Marantz CD80 optically through an Aragon D2A, Audioquest Ruby for digital.

And Apple TV for remote radio from the iPad.

Yes, some bits quite old now, but I fall in love with the sound again every time I switch it on...

After a lot of ins and outs since October and then a huge clear out , my current "permanent" set up .

The Denon has Spotify Connect and Internet Radio built in , the OPPO has a BT box connected , a HD drive (FLAC ) and is wired to a Panasonic 42" HDTV via HDMI , both units are connected to a BT hub via ethernet . The Ortofon Quintet Bronze MC is connected direct to the Yamaha's built in phono stage . Speakers are Acoustic Energy 305 .

Hi Jake,

Haven't seen the e-mails at all and just received a pm from you now.

I had a bit of a relapse (still not great and haven't been out of the house for weeks), but the cart is all boxed up and ready to go.

I'll try to get it to you to this weekend, otherwise I'll refund.

Cheers

Mike
