    KEF LSX (long ramble)

    Hi Jt Like you I bought sight unseen by the better half, so was at slightly greater risk, but still agree with all your findings, with slightly stronger views on some things. My requirements were also about declutter, although with the ulterior motive of making room for the "big" speakers operating from a the main system that is not suitable to serve multi-purpose of background music and TV duties as well. My positives however also includes very impressive performance from my vinyl front-end through the analog input, although it is many times the price of the speakers and possibly not fully utilised (although not let down) by the LSX's. I am a little less happy with Stream than yourself (it is a DOG) and I documented my "challenges" here: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55488-newbie-question-solved/ I am more than happy with the Spotify behaviour with both Stream and Control turned off and now playing our CD library from a microJukebox (Small Green Computer Co) using mConnect (if you use a server and want to take advantage of the DLNA option in the LSX's I can recommend this it is great). I too (much to my wifes distress) have hard wired it, but I am not sure if this means that the LSX's are NOT still using wifi from the router, rather than the cable. I am not able to test this, as we are relying on Wifi to control Spotify etc with the old iPhone. I concur is the non-rambling version of my reply. 🙂 Cheers Grantn

    Linn Sondek Mose + Hercules Power Supply

    Hi Andy I have an Origin Live DC100 to play with and do my own AC vs DC comparison, but would be interested to know a little bit more about your experiences with the Number 9 and if you used it with the original Linn motor and which DC motor you compared it to. Cheers Grantn
  3. Try this: https://plinthtemplates.wordpress.com/lenco-l75/ Cheers Gn
  4. Snap. 🙂 Well great minds and all that. A great, out of the box combo. I am hoping the Wood doesn't loose any of the emotion that the Supex provides, I am a bit of an old romantic. The cover looked a bit ratty and in need of refurbishing. Was your cover already mint, or can you connect me with the knowledge, or source of skills to do a beautiful job like yours? What is the base? Oops a little off topic. Cheers Gn
  5. Bit of a rough lash-up, but yes pretty sweet. The G99 is no slug either. 😉
  6. Love the Supex clan. My main squeeze at the moment: Although I have been told to try something modern, rather than my "old man" cartridges. Will give this a go: Cheers Gn

    Magneplanar Speaker Owners Thread

    You can rule this out as bass transients will never destroy a ribbon, believe me I've tried it, what normally happens there is that the ribbon will travel to its limitation and force you to turn down the volume Actually, I thought that the mechanism was that the bass transients put the amplifier into clipping, which produces alot of high frequency energy. That is why andyr said the cause was " an under powered amplifier". cheers gn

    DC Power Source

    Hi Just wondering if this is a potential clean DC source for pre-amp and other low power components? https://www.dicksmith.com.au/da/anker/c/back-school-anker-power-banks/shop/phones/power-banks/?order_by=featured&view=list&utm_source=MailList&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190112_EDM_1_DS_AU_POWX_POWX_Anker cheers grantn

    Vinyl Enlightenment and Celebration

    +1 for the lounge (phono) 🙂 A little device that does something with music that I suspect those with an interest in what different types of timber strategically placed on a guitar body can do for tone would appreciate. Enjoy. Grantn

    New desktop monitors KEF LSX

    Thinking about these, but equally applicable to all the single driver Kef's I suppose, can they be turned on their side without too much ill effect? cheers Grantn

    Vinyl Enlightenment and Celebration

    I trust that you carried out extensive trials to confirm that the hint of hazelnut was superior to either of these alternatives? 😎

    Vinyl Enlightenment and Celebration

    Hi AC I am Interested that you are trying the Carlin type controller on your Lenco. Will it have the tachometer/feedback system incorporated, or manual adjustment for speed correction? I have a couple of the boards for the Sanders/Nigel speed controllers from Lenco Heaven, but have not gotten around to assembling the parts, let alone building one. Jealous and keen to hear how yours go. Cheers Grantn
  13. Hi Steve Do you need to send him the whole cartridge, or just the stylus/cantilever assembly? Cheers Gn

    Show us your Turntables!!!

    You are so right I remember how awful music sounded on the radio and how it now sounds so much better now as technology and the advances in the recording process have enhanced all our musical lives. You might like to read this article. https://www.cnet.com/news/compression-is-killing-your-music/ Now where is my iPod, that replaced my LP12. LOL Gn
