    I pulled my el cheapo Denon AU-300LC out of storage as I was looking at selling it and my AU-320 dual input SUT. I remembered that for some unknown reason my Dyna XV-1 always seemed to like the cheapo Denon. Plugged it in and the TW/SME/Dyna has turned into a rock n roller - plenty of speed and bite just from adding the SUT. I may well get tired of this - but everything you do in analog seems to do something to the sound.

    looks great and I am sure it sounds as good @rantan That is the wonderful thing about vinyl and turntables - EVERY thing you do changes the sound - not always for the better, but many times it does. @Citroen Cliff, what you mention about vinyl almost making you listen to at least one side or the entire album is so true - no shuffle play with vinyl - you get to actually explore albums and enjoy them more.

    Bill Withers - Best Of & Mick Jagger - Wandering Spirit. Bill Withers is such a cool dude and this best of, just superb . My wife walked in and said "Lean on Me" - I've heard this song before - yes honey, this is the original Bill also wrote the classic Use Me and I generally like to play Mick's version with Lenny Kravitz from this solo album as well.

    Pioneer had belt and DD with same model number. Lots of models over the years. Very different tables 🙂

    Thanks Shane. Which mid range DD would you recommend? Denon DP-60L, Pioneer PL-50 or above will sound wonderful. Both come with decent arms, so just add cartridge.

    awesome DW. great system. I used to own the Leben phono and its a little ripper and would sound sublime with Duc's SUT ( RIP). I know Greg aka departed Hensa loves the Valab and its very cheap considering the sound quality. definately try a DD next - start at mid range vintage Jap and you will be surprised at the sound quality

    Hisense are not going to be selling ANY OLED's at those prices. Just go to the Sony store and every OLED bar one is cheaper than the supposed Hisense retail prices. LOL me thinks they will be discounted a LOT by time of release.

    The Technics DD gets the most play followed by the Pioneer DD but my mood plays a large part of what I choose to play. Technics excels in dynamics and drive and has the best cartridge - Pioneer has a cart that is slightly more forgiving. They both possess that DD magic that the mid to higher end Jap decks have - these just a bit more than most as they are both the best that each company found make. The TW Acustic on the right, excels in tone and smoothness - very enjoyable with jazz, 50's 60's rock/ vocals/folk. Cheers
