  1. Linn have made a 2nd batch of KEEL subchassis cut to take a Naim's Aro tonearm. Full details here https://www.cymbiosis.com/2016/04/aro-keel-available-again/
  2. Hi, I've had a Sharp Z200 for 10 years and was immediately blown away by the colour realism. It's time to start looking at a HD projector. Obviously HD will be better, but a high quality image into a poor lens etc would be a silly move. What projectors should I be looking at as a replacement? Many thanks.
  3. Not sure yet due to work commitments. Will be trying to make it happen though.
  4. We had two copies. Zen Mister had a pressing, that I preferred. My German pressing others preferred. From looking at your comments we probably have very different tastes in music. Thus bring your own when you come to Krug.
  5. Who brought the Tintara Shiraz? It is amazing. Many thanks.
  6. I'm very delighted I finally got to return the favour and invite you to hear my system. I'm glad you enjoyed the afternoon. I know, I don't need no education on this matter. When I listen to music, I set my course for the heart of the sun, I switch on my LP12, and all of a sudden I'm on the dark side of the moon.
  7. As I said, I had a piece of paper by the hifi, and remember to capture most of what we played. So far the two pressings of 90125 is something I missed.
  8. "the Krug"? How can you live in such scarcity? Do you think I have just the one bottle in my "cellar" at any point in time for you to come and enjoy?
  9. The latest version of Linn's DS range has a turntable input so this source can take advantage of its room (and speaker) correction capabilities. From having heard the differences that the SPACE software makes, correct speaker placement is a much bigger issue than room cancelling matters. Thus I placed my speakers carefully when I moved. I've not turned on Space in my system. Two reasons: I want my DS to be on a level footing with my LP12 and the even bigger reason is it takes ages to measure all aspects of the room precisely.
  10. What was played? A question that frequently seems to be asked at GTGs. So this time I put a piece of paper by my hifi and wrote "And we played.." Zen Mister's 24bit Chesky studio masters, and David Sylvian CD. vinyl: Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody Bowie, Cat People 12 inch, China Girl Daft Punk, Random Access Memories, Giorgio by Moroder & Touch. The Buggles, Video Killed The Radio Star & Elstree Bowie, Low Sarah McLachlan, Solare Hans Theessink, Slow Train Sara K, In The Groove, Stop Those Bells, Waterfalls Madeleine Peyroux, Was I? (CD) Alison Krauss & Union Station, So Long So Wrong Fiona Joy Hawkins, 600 Years Of Moments Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here Roger Waters, Amused To Death Norah Jones, Sunrise (Live In Austin Texas) The Silos Mighty Sam McClain, Give It Up Love Dead Can Dance, Into The Labyrinth Dire Straits, Brothers In Arms (double LP)
  11. The first esteemed people arrive while I had several rock CDs on shuffle. Zen Mister brought some Chesky recordings at 24 bit / 192khz, which we played, as well as a David Sylvian CD (he was in the band Japan). I made my usual smoked salmon canapes. I made my latest creations, Opera House Potatoes. Then we had lunch on the deck. Passing the mustard, hopefully the HiFi would cut it... Then we listened to lots of vinyl for hours on the best LP12 in Australia (yes, that's a fair enough comment, I don't expect any abuse for that:-) Although @@Luc wasn't in Victoria, we enjoyed some KRUG champagne to celebrate my 5 years in Melbourne. Plus, much was drunk: the finished, the in progress, and the yet to be touched.
  12. I held a GTG. 5 people came. More details to follow.
  13. I've 3 items that I've just put up on ebay UK for international auction (all 3 ebay titles use the wording pre-loved) --- and I thought I'd make people here aware of them too. Location (currently of items): Patterson Lakes SE Melbourne, VIC Item: Lingo 2 --- 33/45 power supply for LP12 Item Condition: mint Reason for selling: upgraded to Radikal, and also need cash Extra Info: Made in late 2005, a vast upgrade from my Lingo 1 in both stage clarity, note clarity and timing precision. I'm second owner. Complete with all original packaging and paperwork. Item: Linto --- phono-stage: MC moving coil only Item Condition: mint Reason for selling: upgraded to Urika Extra Info: Bought new in 2007. Complete with all original packaging and paperwork. Item: Klimax Renew DS --- top class all purpose 2 channel digital music player: home-network DAC Item Condition: mint Reason for selling: little used after upgrading to Klimax DS/1 Extra Info: Upgrade with latest SPACE optimization software. Plays any file it can access over your home network and the internet, in any format (CD, mp3, internet radio) up to 24 bit and 384 kHz. Still outperforms even the latest specification Akurate DS, and I think it outperforms a 4 box dCS Vivaldi too. This little black box consists of two circuit-boards: a power supply and the audio-board. The audio-board was bought new in 2008 as a part of a Klimax DS. In 2011 when I upgrade my KDS to the newer audio-board, this original audio-board was repackaged in this new little box with a brand new Dynamik switch mode power supply. Initially unused, a friend used it for 13 months, I've used it for 3 months. Complete with all original packaging. Pictures: see ebay listings by dr_bunny
  14. Hi, The best (and by far the most comprehensive) setup guide for the LP12 is in 3 parts on this page. Off top of my head part 3 deals with suspension. http://www.cymbiosis.com/content/pages/advice/downloads
  15. Definitely worth doing, having played with all 4 combinations of Ekos2, EkosSE, Akiva, Kandid. PS I have a spare 2007 stainless-steel top-plate, 2007 AC motor and Akiva MC for sale---must stop listening and put up proper posts complete with all details.
