  1. Seems you are getting the benefits most owners are hearing, still waiting for mine arrive from the January batch.
  2. Just use the camera to view the barcode, without pressing any buttons, once identified it will display the album options
  3. Oh really, tediously cataloguing my collection at the moment, just found the scanning, you’re a legend, thanks.
  4. So much on your list I could’ve put on mine, 24 seemed like a lot initially, in the end not nearly enough.
  5. AC/DC - High Voltage AC/DC - Highway to Hell AC/DC - Back in Black Guns n Roses - Appetite for Destruction Van Halen - 1 & 2 Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast Metallica - Black album Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon Def Leopard - On through the Night Y&T - Black Tiger W.A.S.P - The Last Command Gillan and Glover - Accidentally on purpose Deep Purple - Machine Head Led Zeppelin - 4 New Frontier s/t Queensryche - Empire Riverside - Wasteland Anette Askvik - Liberty Joe Satriani - Surfing with an Alien, pissed and fell over and fractured my arm when this was playing Leonard Cohen - Popular Problems Sixx A.M - The Heroin Diaries Tool - 10,000 Days Stevie Ray Vaughan - Can’t Stand the Weather
  6. It really depends on what his previous cables were.
  7. Dio- The Last in Line, Ronnie is an amazing singer, perfectly backed up by Appice, Bain and Campbell.
  8. 2019 best Prog list, I found some of these that I was unaware of interesting. https://www.loudersound.com/features/the-prog-magazine-writers-albums-of-2019
  9. Dream Theater - Distance Over Time, I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this album, depending on my mood.
  10. In preparation for the arrival of my ER in the next week or so I purchased some Cable Matters CAT8 cables, the SQ has improved considerable after a few days of burn-in in my current setup, Blue Jeans CAT5e from modem/router to D-LINK switch, previously BJ CAT5e elsewhere but now CM CAT8, from switch to SonicTransporter, NAS, and to endpoint, UltraRendu/DirectStream DAC. I really didn't expect this level of improvement, really looking forward to getting the ER.
  11. Another one you could add to your list, Erik Clapton & Friends, The Breeze - An Appreciation of JJ Cale, the friends include Mark Knopher, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Don White.
  12. The custom loading knobs are well labelled, markings for 1, 250, 500, 750 , 1k, including dash markings within each band, each one equal to 50
  13. Easy MC loading via the remote can be 60, 100, 200 or custom, custom setting is done on the rear panel and goes up to 1000, so it is nicely accomodating to most carts, I’ll try other settings, thanks for your advice, appreciated. 👍
  14. Audio Technica ART-9 cart, set loading at the recommended 100 ohms, in the recent review the reviewer was using a cart rated at 100, but he found 200 was better, so I will try that soon when I’m even more accustomed to the sound.
  15. I have had my Stellar phono playing for 15 hours and it is amazing, all the detail and impact I get with my digital but with the analogue magic. Dead quiet background, bass is well defined with plenty of slam when required, mids are gorgeous, instrument tone seems just right. Soundstage is wide and deep with every instrument in its correct place, all blending together as one in the end. I have a mental list of 20 albums I really need to hear with this phono stage ASAP, highly recommended. It must be the best bargain going at the moment.
