Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#5838

I have a couple of them, seem to work.:wink:


#5839

I’m only 3 sides in. I’m sure I’ll have convinced myself by the end of the evening. :grinning: It doesn’t sound worse and it looks good so that’s a win. This one is a bit the worse for wear and was inexpensive. I’m not sure I would cough up proper money for one.


#5840

:joy:

Before anybody asks, no I don’t own cable lifters.

You’ll want these horrible things


#5841

Doge 211 on temporary wheeled bases just to get them in the room as very heavy.


#5842

Are cable lifters purely to facilitate vacuuming?


#5843

You musn’t ever touch them with the vaccuum cleaner.
The electron flow through the nano crystaline lattice in the cable will be disturbed and take weeks to stabalise.


#5844

Not a problem, Dyson is working on an audiophile vacuum. 6 x price of animal version.


#5845

Hamster cages need a bit of dusting. :+1:


#5846

Its the grain on the phone camera photo. No dust to see here. Move right along. The trolleys were a great idea at £10 each. Thank you.


#5847

See you don’t even get a swipe with a bit of sandpaper for $44.99 these days…


#5848


#5849

I’m guessing that this is some kind of vinyl sorcery?


#5850

Indeed it is Guy. It’s definitely cast a spell on my system. Badoom-tish!


#5851

Eq is wrong if that is the result…


#5852

Please imagine that you’re talking to a moron and tell me what it does. Using short words.


#5853

It makes it sound betterer.


#5854

It’s just a phono-stage with built in adjustment for loading, capacitance and equalisation curve. So basically an amplifier that takes the tiny signal from the cartridge and boosts it to a level that is usable by the line in stage on an amplifier.

The adjustability is mostly foo.


#5855

Looks nice mate :+1:

What were you using before ?


#5856

Finally got some record storage sorted -

There’s an identical unit t’other side.

More than a bit’ cosy’ in here :smiley:


#5857

Looking good Mike. 'Scuse my shite memory, what speakers are they?
