  1. Yep , many of the Ariston suspended designs were harder to get a perfect bounce with than the Lp12. With the RD 11 and it's variants Linn's post 1992 springs and grommets could be used and the job became much easier. I had an RD11 Superieur as my first high-end deck and it worked well with the Linn springs and grommets.
  2. I am sure if you asked the sales person at Bunnings they would give you all the info you need to fabricate the carcass. As for vinyl wrapping, there are many videos on You tube showing you how to do it , which is how I got the info . https://www.bunnings.com.au/zenith-10g-x-40mm-countersunk-ribbed-head-chipboard-screws-22-pack_p2420237 https://www.bunnings.com.au/boyle-100ml-balsa-wood-pva-glue_p1660712 https://www.bunnings.com.au/custompine-1800-x-595-x-16mm-white-melamine-shelving_p0570018
  3. Buy and get the panel cut at Bunnings , glue and screw together. You can also buy car vinyl wrap and finish it in any colour/finish you want.

  5. Well said Lindsay.

  9. Hi Oscar, these day I save important pages to the desktop Just so I have a local copy just in case the website is closed. The best mounting for the Axis is on a light but rigid wall shelf if you have a solid wall to attatch it to eg Projects or Targets offerings.
  10. Just in case anyone is interested I found info on repairing the Axis motor board here : http://andydoz.blogspot.com.au/2017/02/linn-axis-of-evil-repair.html?m=1 Like Pete , I rate the Axis very highly.
  11. Hi Simon , it is almost impossible to check the drivers without removing the end caps and then removing the grille cloth , which is stapled in place. The best you can achieve without doing that is to use a bright torch to shine through the grille cloth and do a physical exam of the surrounds on the bass units and midrange to look for cracking /disintegration. You could also run a swept tone through the speakers at moderate volume to listen for distortion (one cabinet at a time and listen up close at each drive unit)
  12. Not possible to do Frankn without partially dismantling the speakers.
  13. Hi Mavi , retailed and owned Rotel for many years. Rotel works very well with B&W , which in your price range is the CM series. The CM series was designed using Rotel amps. At home I used Tannoy Dual concentrics , which to my ears was a match made in heaven so try to have a listen to some of these : http://www.tannoy.com/lifestyle/products/HiFi/Revolution-XT/Revolution-XT-6/. Don't get to tied down by the technicalities of it all , just use your ears and stipulate with the retailer that if they are not willing to let you try your favourite from you short-list at home before purchase then you can get a full refund of the purchase price so you are not limited to one shops range.
