  1. Maybe punch a few of the better ones into the popsike website?
  2. Some very healthy prices in the records logged so far and not many copies either. Are there any members here who understand this collection as it looks to me a classical klutz to be a bit special?
  3. Hi Andy, thanks the Tron has no loading options and may have been set up specifically for the previous customers cart. I'd say this information would be available. The wires on the classic are like hairs so i will try to find a value for them too. I'm using a short diy cable by canare built by a sna'er so may be able to to find it's value too. Is there a way of adding this value in some other way? Cheers Ian. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. Well tempered classic

    That is great news you are getting the right puck i too have the larger one that moulfie has and it works just fine. I see you don't use a mat on the classic and this is how the designer wanted it to be used. Does your platter have a concave dip in it too? Apparently this is an addition to the bias where the cart is falling to the centre because of the "dishing" whilst trying to be pushed outwards by the centrifugal force. Thanks for the heads up on your phono I'll have a read up on it later. I have nill diy skills but would really like to try different capacitance loadings?? between the rca's and the Tron phono. I too am using a canare lead between the TT and phono and find it very clear and neutral and it was made by a fellow sna'er here. Maybe a longer lead would add something to my mix? I too have an issue with a slight hum from the tonearm wires if i touch them, the tonearm or the rca out connections! I'd love to get the tonearm rewired but i believe it is difficult as the arm is filled with sand, i have read of people running the re-wire on the outside of the tube. How did you find soldering that hair thin wire and how did you remove the cotton sleeve? You have a lovely set up there and a better cart really would make a big difference in your set up. Apparently the Dynavector carts are a great match for this TT and are what the importer of this table reccomends. I think my next cart will be with this brand. Anyway welcome to the forum and where do you live mate? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. I can't see me going anywhere other than my Tron phono stage for now. It is the most expensive piece of audio equipment i have purchased to date. It is tube based so there will be more rolling to come to dial in the flavour i like. Before this i had the Jasmine 2 box phono but this was bettered by the phono stage in my ME pre so i moved it on. If i want a more clear and dynamic sound i sometimes give the ME a run but still find myself coming back to the Tron for a more effortless sound. My next stop will be trying to sort out the capacitance as I'd like to have a play there. Is there a way of measuring what a Stanton 881s needs in this area? Is there a box i could use in between the TT's output rca's and the Tron phono where i could dial this in? Maybe this could be your next diy [email protected] P.s. i like your polite musings mate.

  8. Sonos play 5 Gen2 v All other play.

    [email protected] that is what i was hoping to hear. Are you running the connect or just streaming from a phone or tablet? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Well, it was about 3 in the morning! Maybe it was the desert that made these speakers sound so good? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Hi i was at a bbq the other evening and my mate had the sonos play 3 speakers playing around the house. I must admit they sounded very listenable. I found there was an ability to talk and listen to the music. The delivery of the sound was comfortable and worked across all genres of music played. My question is do i buy the 3's which are reasonably priced or splash out on the new gen 2 5's? I like the thought of the new features incorporated in the 5/2. I know i should go and have a listen but I'm looking for any other play3 or play5 gen1 who have made the move. Cheers Ian. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Ahh i have just read your post again and maybe you have a different spindle than the stock one. I've just sighted the screw through with a tape and rekon it's 5mm in diameter with the hole being bigger. Cheers Ian. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Hi there and welcome to the forum! Yes the classic is a great sounding TT and worthy of as good a cartridge you can throw at it. I have never heard the 2M red but found the bronze a nice cart and the black slightly different. For the money i really rate the Stanton 881s and would love to hear it head to head with a 2M black which is around 3+ times the price. What phono stage are you using and a run down of your streaming system would interest some here? It's interesting to see your on/off switch has been replaced with a light switch the wiring around the silver switch must have been bypassed but if it works then it can't affect anything. I don't know the diameter of the screw in the bottom of the puck but if you pm me your address i have a spare that you can have. I think it is the original stock one. Once again welcome to stereonet.
