  1. Tensioned drop down screens

    Cheers - will continue the conversation with the retailer and see what happens.
  2. Tensioned drop down screens

    I will double check - if you have time - do me a favour and have a look at the screen from the edge and shine a torch on the surface. Let me know if there are lumps etc. TA
  3. Tensioned drop down screens

    Hi Al, Both brand new from the manufacturer ! Yes they are going back - issue is that they have stated that this is within their tolerances - this is of course unacceptable. I have followed up with the retailer and they are on negotiating an outcome. Will keep all posted. Cheers
  4. Tensioned drop down screens

    I am on my fourth...Screen Techics screen (no Tab Tension) and (in my experience) I have found the quality to be quite poor. All the screen have had an issue with uniformity and striations in the material - causing lumps that can be seen when viewing - especially in bright scenes and panned shots where the image will curve and bubble. The following pictures are from two different screens. Al have you had any of these issues? It could be that there is a major manufacturing issue....

Its deep, authoritative bass and articulate midrange make for an energizing listen, and there’s a real synergy between the turntable, tonearm and cartridge. Also, the Emotion’s elegant appearance adds some additional spice compared to many of the frumpy wood rectangles that also compete in this price range. The Emotion as supplied with the Satisfy tonearm and Aurum Classics Wood cartridge is an analog package that’s very likely to charm. PS Audio GCPH Phono Stage - with remote control. SOLD The GCPH is a high-end standalone phono preamplifier designed for the highest quality phono reproduction possible. It is based on PS Audio’s unique Gain Cell Technology and over 30 years of designing state-of-the-art phono stages. PS Audio built its rst phono stage in 1973 and has been responsible for some of the most loved vinyl amplification electronics the Audio world has ever known. Curve - Whatever method is employed, it is absolutely critical the curve be as exact as possible. Deviations of more than a tenth of a dB are unacceptable. The GCPH is at to the RIAA standard by less than 0.1dB. A unique feature of the GCPH is the multiple gain setting adjustment methods. The coarse gain settings are available on the rear of the unit, the ne gain setting available via a volume control like knob on the front panel. The front panel gain adjustment also allows the GCPH to be used as a standalone phono preamplifier feeding the purest phono signal possible directly into your power amplifier. 5 Star Review https://www.whathifi.com/ps-audio/gcph/review http://thevinylanachronist.blogspot.com.au/2010/02/ps-audio-gcph-phono-preamplifier.html https://www.stereophile.com/phonopreamps/106gcph/index.html Product manual: http://www.psaudio.com/support/manuals/ Pictures:
