  1. Thanks for the advice. I swapped my turntable into the cd input and it was all good. Ran the cd from the turntable input and same drama. So it's definitely the cd player that's faulty. Any recommendations of someone in Melbourne (peferably South East) who is handy with cd players?
  2. Well its definitely not a failed tube. Tried four different ones that I know are good. Changed out IC's as well, no difference.
  3. I just put a new tube in it not long ago. Could be I guess. It's very strange as I am sitting here right now playing a disc on it and it's fine apart from a quick distortion at the very start. So it would seem that the laset may be ok as you would think it would work or it wouldn't. So may be a dodgy tube. I'll run this disc through and try another one. Process of elimination at this point. I've got other tubes there so that will be the next step. Thanks for the reply.
  4. Hi all, I have a Xindak Muse 2.0 which has a tube output stage. I have had it for a couple of years now and enjoy the sound and have done a little tube rolling with it. I don't play cd's often so it hasn't done a lot of work since I have owned it. The problem is that the other day I played a cd and it played fine right through and then put in another one and it played fine for a while and then the sound became distorted and was also louder in volume. It then played normal and same thing happened again. Then it basically became constant distortion. Thinking it may have been the cd I put in the one that I had previously played and the same thing happened thus eliminating a dodgy cd. I have since run a lens cleaning disc through it and tested. The cd played ok for about 4 tracks and then problem started again. Any ideas??? Could the lens be stuffed? If so is this something that can be replaced? TIA
  5. Great price for a fantastic phono stage. New owner will be well pleased with this, especially with the upgraded caps. Can't go wrong at this price, I love mine. GLWTS.
  6. Wow, this topic is still going. Just thought I'd interject and let everyone know I'm still running my 2m black and still love the sound. I have done a bit of tube rolling to fine tune the pre and power amps and really satisfied with the sound. I've done quite a few upgrades to the tt including a tonearm rewire which made a huge difference from the crap rega wiring. I have toyed with the idea of trying other carts but until the black is dead I'll stick with it cause it's so good. I also upgraded my speakers with some custom built adelaide speakers which are absolutely stunning. I firmly believe that synergy in the complete system makes all the difference and if you find that then kick back and enjoy the music.
  7. I had this same issue. I just tighten the bejesus out of the nuts and haven't had an issue since. And I mean tight so that there is a heap of pressure on the spacers. Good luck.
  8. Thanks for the info. Sounds like it's a worthy investment. Curious as to why yours has the rb250 arm on it when they came out with the 600?
  9. What's your thoughts on the pete riggle vtaf. Got the same tt and have been toying with the idea of getting one. Have same sub and feet but rb600 arm which I rewired. That made a huge difference. Cheers.
  10. Hey Russ, put me down for amanda palmer and king crimson plus the paul kelly i hope you've still got for me. Try and catch up over weekend.
