    Vintage Yamaha A-2000

    You will enjoy it! I may sell mine sometime soon with the matching CD player. The CD is very hard to find

    New NS-1000m build

    Hi @highcut28, John told me your idea and showed me the pieces. I think he said a scanspeak 12” is that right? I had some spare tweeters and mids there so they have been tested to fit also. Make sure you update us to let us see the progress. Kind regards Jake

    They certainly have a lot more rounded off sound. The bass is much more present and the mid and the tweeter are now no longer more dominant. I’m sure the crossover upgrade helped in the department also but the thicker more solid boxes definitely is worth the upgrade. They actually sound like speakers I could happily use everyday across a broad range of music.

    Bluesound Node 2i

    This post was started as I did just that. The Yamaha is great as an entry MusicCast streamer. I wouldn’t say it’s audiophile worthy. But it is capable and MQA isn’t for everyone. BUT the BlueSound leaves it for dead sonically. Especially fed to a good DAC. Depends on what you need. The OS is also way better on the BS. Its the first streamer I’ve had that actually makes the music more analogue rather than 1s and 0s.

    For sure mate. And a credit to @erest and everyone that’s offered advice or encouragement.

    The photos never do them justice. They are a lot deeper red in a natural light.

    Thanks mate. The crossovers will need some run in. Also there is a couple of little things to do like spray all the crossover screws black. But very happy. John has also had some enquires from the thread which is good. They also have a lot better bass with the crossovers and the thicker cabs.

    Righti people. We all thought this day would never come. But here we are. I couldn’t be happier with John’s work. They look and sound just like I wanted. Its REALLY hard to get a good pic of them in light as they reflect absolutely everything. The NOS decals will go on tomorrow.
  13. Oh @kelossus the things you do to me !! They look stunning. I can bet they sound awesome

    Linn LP12 Plinth dimensions

    Excellent! Thanks Andy. I’ll have to draw up some plans. That wood looks great. Really appreciate the quick reply too
  15. Hi All, Has anyone got the exact Linn Plinth dimensions written down anywhere for a DIY build? Toying with an idea. @andyr @Ozcall
