  1. Sad to hear but the legend lives on. I have a tt I purchased from him a few years back - he was always willing to discuss technical issues with me and at length over the telephone.
  2. PS Audio front end & a pair PS Audio BHK Mono 300 power amplifiers.
  3. I fired up my pair of 402’s for a change the last few weeks, they still stack up very well. Not as good as the Quad ESL’s but happy listening.
  4. Thank you to Anthony, LM and Contrast Audio (plus helpers who assisted getting everything ready). A very relaxed venue with nice nibbles, liquids and a number of SNAers and non-SNA folk attending. The Line Magnetic and Contrast Audio products are beautifully made and sounded great. I heard several people say the “smaller” system sounded superb however I was listening to the LM845/Contrast Soul combo via LP and CD. Very clean & detailed sound even though the room was too “reflective” for my taste. With a bit of luck the LM845 will make its way to my house for a listen. I’m sure I won’t be disappointed.
  5. I have a bunch of their products. Always good value, never had any problems with purchase and you can discuss requirements over the telephone.
  6. You only need to sell one unit and you are made.
  7. It’s hard to be honest, but great when you have to lie down after too many brews!
  8. Funnily enough I actually do use them! Not for soundQ improvement but so I don’t accidentally step on my cables and to place some physical separation bt power and signal cables. As the OP said , cheap as.
  9. Good tube amp will work fine too. Quads own of course. I used Weston Acoustics for a long time, or a JLTi (Joe Rasmussen) , I think a Line Magnetic or Vincent Amps could also work well.
  10. I’d say it’s also because ME have not been in production for 15yrs so many units on the market are up for a rebuild and many Original (or perhaps 2nd, 3rd ) owners don’t have them rebuilt. Also, ME build quality was a bit hit & miss so a re-cap (Energy story matrix and PS) often leads to finding a number of other issues that then need to be fixed. The new ME from Winnovate is different of course but it’s not the original design by Peter.
  11. Hi @ninjagaijin, look to a stone supplier like the ones that came up on an internet search. They would likely be able to cut to size at a modest fee. mid the bass speaker is causing distortion or even causing the stylus to jump the groove you may also need further isolation.
  12. If the finish is metal then unlikely a speaker service agent will be able to help as they are mostly woodworking/cabinetry. can you push/smooth the damaged section reasonably flat again? Then use something like JB Weld to fill in the bumps? Otherwise if the damaged section is in a “base” corner perhaps put an ornament in front of it and forget about a cosmetic repair. Also try contacting MF (or the distributor) and ask if a replacement panel is available??
  13. I think you mean FGPA not R2R. what about Denafrips Terminator- that is R2R.
  14. Our water is heated from either the grid or our solar system, the hot water gets heated up from 10am onwards. If there isn’t enough power being generated from PV it will use the battery or if not enough in battery it pulls from the grid. We can override to always use the grid during winter or if there is prolonged weather issues.
