  1. This is probably the most beautiful looking amplifier I have ever seen - such quality too.
  2. Hi Mark, agree totally with all of the above - especially re Technics new models.. I would be keen to hear how you think the SL10 stacks up against the SL1210's out of curiosity. cheers Cameron
  3. Hi Mark, the SL1200GR looks great - how does it compare to the other turntables you have had and the SL10 (which we both own and hence a common reference). I am currently agonising over checking out some of the vintage high end Japanese DD turntables (Technics SP10, Yamaha GT2000, Kenwood 9010 etc), and my sensible head (or the chicken in me if you prefer)is saying that the new SL1200 GR or for more dough SL1200G would be a safer bet. cheers Cameron
  4. Hi Tase, sorry to hear about this - your Linn's look amazing by the way - I have modified LP 12 myself although not as highly specc'ed (or as funky - in a good way - as yours:); How is the ball bearing Mober sub platter looking - is there any sign of wear on this? Are you still using it / would you still recommend the sub platter upgrade? I am asking because it was on my radar as the next upgrade along with the Mober DC motor unit. Would really appreciate and value your thoughts. cheers Cameron
  5. Hi Bill, email Brian Maddern at Decibel Hi Fi - he is a turntable specialist and has a cartridge / stylus main order business, so he can probably identify what would suit your turntable and be able to mail it to you. cheers Cameron
  6. Hi Mark thanks or your feedback - it is a great sounding turntable - I am fortunate to have also have the original 310MC with mine, which was confirmed as in good condition (what a relief) - how do you find the Ortofon compares? I will get the 310 re tipped when the time comes, but would buy another cartridge to use - hence the question. cheers Cameron
  7. Hi Terry, I don't own a Rega 3 but have done a direct comparison (some time ago) with Rega 3 and the Revolver / Linn LVX I owned at the time in my own system over a couple of weeks and I preferred the Revolver(although I think the best combination would have been the Revolver with the Rega arm). My original Linn LP 12 was a late 70's model with an Origin Live RB250 arm and was a clear step above both and that was a red button model. The gap increased significantly as other power supply and sub chassis improvements were undertaken. The Linn I currently have is new built from Linn Cirkus, plinth, new motor, with Isokinetik power supply, Vinyl Passion subchassis and top plate, acrylic base, Tiger Paw Tranquility and Origin Live Conqueror Mk2 arm. This sounds really good; the point I was making is that the sound of the Technics is right up there. It is currently being played through a Project Maia DS amp in a bedroom system whilst my main system is stripped down. The Linn jumps with the wooden floor boards in the house so is in its box. When I get the main system set back up again I will do a back to back and report back. The phono stage in my main system is an Icon Audio PS1 Signature valve set up. As you rightly identity this will readily show up the differences. Brian Maddern who serviced and repaired the Technics rates it to the extent that he is now looking to buy one. cheers Cameron
  8. Hi just an update to this thread - Brian Maddern at Decibel Hi Fi sorted my SL 10 and now enjoying it. Really great sound - way above Rega 3 level and not embarrassed by my Linn LP 12 (I will do a comparison one day) and so easy to use.

  13. Hi John, thanks very much for your comments- they bring balance to the discussion as I know your system is not challenged in the resolution department. cheers Cameron
  14. As I said, if you can hear the difference buy it, if you can't don't. I am not selling anything, I just don't agree with this statement based on my (and many others) personal experience. Your system looks amazing and clearly has no issues with resolution - if they don't work for you - fair enough. I have had different experiences across many years and many iteration of my system.
  15. I am sorry but I totally disagree with you - I have heard substantial improvements in sound quality, bigger than component upgrade (over many years, from various types of industry acknowledged well designed equipment - not just statements from the marketing departments) using good quality mains cables and power conditioning - and this is easy to demonstrate. If it makes a difference buy it, if it doesn't don't - simples. The resolution of the system makes a big difference - I heard differences that were nice to have a long time ago (20 years)- but on the system I have now, Blind Freddy could hear the difference - and my system is not even close to super high end. My system didn't have a problem before and sounded great, but improving power supply is as important , as is room treatment. Suggesting otherwise is simply nonsense.
