  2. I enjoy SACD and must have over150. I still buy new release from CD Japan. There is always Discogs when you need old favourites. Stump
  3. The only input I will have on the Mods will be payment! The Shop doing the Mods will get access to the Factory schematic and input from the design engineer.They will also have a stock model in house for comparisons.👍
  4. Thanks ,I put the question on a tube forum and received this reply.. If I was asked to mod this, I’d replace the carbon comp resistors with either Dale 1% or Naked Z-Foil resistors. Replace pow supply caps with high end, larger value, low ESR high ripple current, 10,000hr bits from Panasonic, and bypass them with .1uf film caps. I’d replace any mylar/polyester caps with Polypropylenes. Replace vol pot with a stepped Z-foil unit. That’d be a good start at least. and remove all silver-mica or ceramic caps and replace with polyprop film.
  5. Just sent my Tube phono stage away for some mods.First to increase the gain then to upgrade parts........
  6. Kronos Sparta with 2 tone-arms. One is from KL Audio and the other is a 13" Viv Lab with carbon arm tube.
  7. On a previous thread taking about making up power cords with Furutech cable and plugs one member mentioned he uses the same cable to run dedicated lines from his power box..... Money can get you everything.....
  8. I have put in my diary .Can not commit until early 2020...... Stump
  9. Given its the HOT time of year Phuket is a ideal location .Would be a great show for the Single Audiophile...😜 Stump
  10. Anyone in Adelaide have one of these for me to do a home demo before I consider this sale.? Cheers
  11. The idea of powered from the TV USB is a good advantage.I use LIFX Z strips which will have a affect with the advantage of Alexa voice control....
  12. All these wooden turntables must produce a more “Natural Sound “
  13. I was expecting something bigger! Maybe match the Horn colour with your wife's curtains....👍 Stump
  14. I have them and heard them in other owners houses.They have been on full display at the Melbourne HIFI Shows and without sounding bias they are Value for Money...... Stump👍 P.S Buy Local
  15. Sales are advertised to get people into shops.(Suckers) Coles and Woolworth could give away there food but I will still shop at Foodland or local fruit and veg.I'm a online shopper for everything possible.Why buy Chinese goods from local retailers at inflated prices? HIFI I do have loyalty to Vaf and for my Chinese purchases although I could get cheaper price online I and loyal to my dealer purely for the honest after sales service which I value...... Stump
