Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#5017

If you can remember the holiday you shouldn’t have bothered :partying_face::partying_face::partying_face:


#5018

Bloody scousers :roll_eyes:


#5019

What about them? Are you having a sly dig at @Jim?

I’m Strayan or Irish depending on who is asking.


#5020

Does an Io Gold work in a 9" SME V?


#5021

Not at the moment as my fingers are unskilled for the fettling required. It worked beautifully in my 9" Clearaudio unipivot though.


#5022

Might the xx2 be for sale at some point? Fancied trying one in my set up😀


#5023

Pah!


#5024

Not shiny new thing, but today spent a bit of time playing with the set up on the AV Finos, 300b valves doing the amplification, with R2R as the source.

Sooo much more dynamic and transparent than in the lounge.

Think I might have happened upon a half decent setting for the AVs. Not approaching @browellm 's magical touch, but certainly better than my first try.


#5025

Or the deck, maybe ?


#5026

Which one? I have 3 at the moment.


#5027

Was thinking the Clearaudio, can’t afford the SME, anything else ?


#5028

Thats good, mine should arrive tomorrow or Monday.


#5029

You seem to have forgotten to take the bridge off the V


#5030

:grin:


#5031

Meh! I think I shall give fannying about with the bearing pressure a miss thanks.

I’ve had unipivots for the last 20-odd years so the entire concept of the V and its usage is a bit of a novelty. Best to get used to it before feckin’ it up. Sounds alright as is though. A full service and professional setup will follow.


#5032

Pah!
Those professionals know nothing about bridges, nothing I tell you! :grin:


#5033

I’ll bridge you to the bottom of the stairs in a minute. :japanese_ogre:


#5034

:grin:

Very nice TT by the way!


#5035

S’alright I s’pose, not up to the standard of an SL-7 though.


#5036

Got mine working afternoon, sounds decent and has way more power than I need.
I’m hoping after extended use I’ll swap back to my big Yamaha and appreciate what it is lacking. But like you, first impressions are that its absolutely fit for purpose, amazing really.
