  1. Here’s a shot,taken a while ago,-mid Range amps upgraded,awaiting arrival of new mono blocks for tweeters
  2. My active activity goes back 20 years-active naim credos 2way,then naim SBL 2 way,then naim NBL 3 way-naim now replaced with active JBL Everest clones using a mix of S/S and valves - although I have heard many great passive systems,I could not go back down that track
  3. My system is a work in progress-sounding good-but a fair bit of money has been spent for small,but worthwhile incremental improvements lately Then this cartridge went on,and I had one of those OMG moments ! A huge hike in sound quality in every way,that I did not see coming End game cartridge for me
  4. It is indeed the RP1-xg,just recently fitted after a full rebuild cheers
  5. My new cartridge-Phasemation PP2000. Game changer !- I thought my ZYX R100 was good-it is ! This cartridge takes my system to another level
