    MotoGP, Moto2 and moto3 2019

    The speedway format is great, although it still can become a procession but only for four laps at least. When I was racing getting the start and first two corners (4 to an oval) were paramount to success. Once in front it is just a matter of keeping full throttle and racing your line. If someone wants to pass they have to go outside and it is a long way around the outside. Obviously it can be done if you don't spill too much speed in the slide.

    @Batty would you know how I can get the Speedway GP? Prefer to be able to download rather than stream as they are often on at stupid times of the night.

    Lingo 2 SMD / or Mober?

    And they say Linns prices are outrageous!!!! There is also the Origin Live DC Motor Kit at $770 from Decibel HiFi. http://www.decibelhifi.com.au/origin-live-external-advanced-dc-motor-kit/

    Lingo 2 SMD / or Mober?

    Assuming you mean that the DC motor is NOT rotating the whole mechanism, you do not feel any vibration ..... But, is it true that the disadvantage of a DC motor is it is never at the correct speed and is always overshooting / undershooting and correcting? Whether this is audible is determined by the resolution of the speed controller and the speed of control? So far my system has shown enough resolution to highlight the improved sound from the spot welded subchassis to Certech and Ittok LVII to Ekos1. So I am assuming it will allow the better drive to be audible also.

    And a DIY Armegeddon - but no 45!

    Your view of the Mose Hercules is based on value for money or performance differences?

    Lingo 2 SMD / or Mober?

    In the absence of any response I assume those that have installed a Mober PSU / motor have done so to replace a lower level PSU e.g. early mains, valhalla or hercules. So people with Lingo2's keep them because they are Linn or are happy with their performance?

    Am interested to hear if anyone has moved from one to the other on a LP12 and what the differences between them were. P.S. Radikal is too expensive as is the Lingo4. Cheers, Chris.

    LP12 Mober Plinth

    @Peter-C non facebook user so little wonder I missed it. @rodders3 I am also a fan of the fluted wooden plinth, but, am questioning at what sound quality cost. Mine is non corner braced and without the motor corner bolt, but, am contemplating doing the corner brace / bolt mod when I pull it down for other items to be fitted.

    LP12 Mober Plinth

    Had seen that, but, didn't see mention of the Mober Plinth.

    LP12 Mober Plinth

    Have I missed this or is it new? Anyone tried it? https://www.ebay.com/itm/LP12-Metal-Plinth-4-Pieces-User-Friendly-Assembly-to-upgrade-overall-sound/253823220250?_trkparms=aid%3D333200%26algo%3DCOMP.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20190129125700%26meid%3D58bcc11908c847aaba289259b21cbe85%26pid%3D100752%26rk%3D8%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D322854427718%26itm%3D253823220250&_trksid=p2047675.c100752.m1982 When is Edmund going to make springs, grommets and a tonearm and I say this with absolutely no disrespect.

    Which pair of Quad ESL 57 to buy?

    Buy both and stack them? What was refurbished? Could be they only did the dust covers anyway. If the membranes of all panels were done, that at least is the hard part. Certainly doing the crossover and power supply is not a major. Go for the cosmetic or condition you want as 4 years difference in the refurbishment is nothing on the grand scheme of how long the originals ran for.

    SOLD: Rega P1 Turntable - upgraded

    And if you want to improve over time the Groove Tracer Reference sub platter and delrin platter make it a very nice deck.

    Budget amp to drive complicated load

    FIT CLAMPING BOARDS!!!! These are available from OneThingAudio and easy to fit. I use QuadII amps on my stacked pair and are only 15W and play plenty loud, so ignore the common theme that ESL57's don't play loud or produce base. I never felt the single ESL's were lacking, but, wanted more in a big room. I did use my Plinius MA102 monoblocks rated at 100W and never had the clamp boards activate, so as Andy says it is restraint on the volume that is required. However, without the clamp boards you have no protection and wont know until you have gone too far and arc your panels. P.S. Depending on the state of ESL's you get servicing the HVPS and cross over can make a big difference prior to considering rebuilding the panels.
