Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


Tempted to sell the SME312S and get one of these.


I use an early one on the SP10. It goes well.


I wish you would bugger off!

One of these has been on my radar for a while and you’re tipping me over the edge. I already have more tonearms than I can use, even with every turntable in use at the same time, but when have trivial facts like that ever stopped wanting moar shiny?

Must resist!

But probably won’t :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


If I was still doing turntables properly I’d have one of those. They look super.


I would sell the RM 309 Paul


It would help if you had a finished room to play them in! :roll_eyes:


Would love a 9" version of that arm


That’s what she said


I thought the stumpy one they were showing at Bristol looked a bit odd.

a 10" one might be OK


Thought it really suited it in the flesh,but does look a bit weird in the pic.


He’s putting rabski 300bs in it.


Circumstances guys, circumstances.


That would be the sensible thing to do :+1:


New NAS (left) at Gyro towers today

I initially did a lot of bad words since I figured it was so light that there was no way there could be a disc in there, and Amazon must have simply sent me an empty enclosure.

Popped it open and, no, there really is a disc in there.

Now the entertaining backup / set-up restore cycle.


I’ve just switched mine off. I don’t understand it.
I’m sure it can do much more than store stuff.

And trying to work it with An iPad is like pulling teeth.


how are those w8 getting on ?


Still working out what’s the best way to place them.
Speakers in our out. And a plinth or not.

They sound wonderful.


Which just finished. Jesus that was painful.

Round two tomorrow.


I am jealous.
When I backed up my NAS it took 3 days.
I think that was due to the speed of my router.


The backup was over USB 3.0 to an NTFS formatted disc. I think both those aspects make a difference.

I’m now installing the new NAS before kicking off the monster restore.

Before someone tells me I’m a cowboy, I do backup at other times, but I’m demoting my “regular” backup disc to “off site”, and bringing in a new one. Hence the very long initial backup. After this it will all revert to incremental again.


I can confirm the pillar diameter is a good fit for SME
