    Denon DP3000 turntable and Grace G704 Tonearm

    By the way lads My brother is after the grace Arm , apparently it's an awesome Unipovot design . He has built an awesome 30kg 3hz isolated Garrard 401 and is currently using a 12inch SME3009 arm . The grace arm is in his sights so I would consider selling this turntable without the arm . Cheers Mike Lenehan

    Hi Simon . To be honest I have a custom made Vinyl rig at home worth $8000 and it's driving a $5500 Aesthetix valve Phono Stage ! I would need this at least to be competitive with the current Digital rig at the factory . Cheers Mike

    The Next Lenehan Audio GTG

    Hi John This is exactly what I also heard on the day . Your current system is probably one of if not the best system in the country . The electronics suite must be right on the edge of the art ! The ML2Ltds also had a surprising performance boost when we installed the Duelund Silver capacitors . The music we were playing on the day was all the impressive bass heavy tracts like Bela Fleck and Yello . The ML5’s that were in the system most of the day were the entry level version . The entire crossovers in these speakers have a value of $750 , the crossovers in a pair of ML2Ltd are valued at $4800. The tweeter caps alone are $1500 each. I must admit the mids and top I heard from your upgraded Ltd’s was arguably the best I have heard . The only ML5’s for you to really consider would need Duelund silver bypassed capacitors and FoilFlex ribbon internal wiring . Even the Dale Vishay 10watt non inductive resistors in the standard ML5 sound a touch wirey compared to the Duelund resistors in your Ltds . In fact we have found the latest Path Audio resistors with their groundable copper clad body sounds the best in the mid treble and top end so we now use them in the ML5Reference . Continuously pulling the system apart on the day certainly made the system sound non optimal. The soundstage was certainly foreshortened . Thinking about it you would certainly need the ML5Reference correctly setup ! Burned in and settled in the system for at least 4/6 hours to get even a rough idea of outright performance. The other consideration John is the superiority of the Duelund Cast Capacitors ! Some people actually prefer the Duelund VSF , I believe this is because the Cast is so absolutely mater of fact . The VSF by comparison is slightly sweeter and warmer !! Sorry if you ask me I prefer matter of fact . If you are wanting true 3dimensional reproduction of the source even altering the caps or resistors can definitely modulate reality . I’m going to think hard about doing a trip ! Maybe head south and call in to interested audiophiles .(I could drink all their wine and kick back [emoji851]🧐[emoji33] Cheers. Mike Lenehan

    Hi Johannes. Yes the standard ML5’s were only 3hrs old so certainly needed some run time ! On second thought I maybe should not have run them . The ML5Refs were fully burned in so we’re smooth as silk . Those differences had nothing to do with Ref verses Standard just burn in . Another thing that unfortunately can make a mess of things is when people want to listen to different pieces of equipment. The system was pulled apart and rebuilt maybe 10 to 12 times through the day . It always sounds rough for the first 15 minutes then actually requires at least 45 minutes play time to settle in . Newly connected systems always manifest in the upper midrange in my experience. Anyone wanting to know what any of this gear really sounds like would need to listen to something that’s been connected and on for at least 2hours . We had 25 people in an 8m x 5m room and it was akin to a loud restaurant at times . It was a great day but more like a party than a serious listening session . I had a couple of beers myself and started havin a goooood time [emoji847]. Mike
