  1. opp, got myself mix up, right you are (and i was in my head - just come out wrong)
  2. i getting a hit of that new car smell even from here!
  3. i've put a Remus axle back unit on my m253i, it uses the stock valve control connection so still benefits from the bimodal aspect - louder in sport and sport+ modes etc. So its likely there's other options that also maintain this feature. alternatively, even with the stock exhaust, if you switch to sport then disconnect the servo control interconnect (just don't have it dangling to cause trouble) you'll have the valves left open and it will be loud all the time - just encase you want to see how that goes for you (this is on the older N55 engines )
  4. nice "And I didn't have any idea what to do but I knew I needed a click.... ...My name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me Giorgio"
  5. yep, its a thing. even before 2020 bizarro set in i saw a thread comment a few years back, a quick google search brings up several points of reference on the idea, seems easy enough to do but I dare say for some/most of the 2M buyers its futurist appearance of the 2M that's most appealing, this hack does nothing for looks
  6. https://www.decibelhifi.com.au/jico-hyper-elliptical-stylus-for-ortofon-om-cartri $155 for just the stylus then you can whack it on the 2M cart body... (quickly, advert your eyes children!)
  7. i agree, looks compatible to the 2M carts i have also agree that those simple see-saw tracking force gauges are a low cost but valuable investment
  8. the wedge / shim approach is a viable option worth considering, some others may be able to talk to it more you may be able to get a similar change in VTA by increasing the tracking force - staying within the recommended limits or without compromising tracking performance if you have a test disk that measures this. this will rake the cantilever that little bit more and get a similar stylus-to-groove angle that dipping the tail would yield this assuming it is more tail down needed and that 20hrs is sufficient to bring it on song
  9. ^^ lovely gets hi rotation in my house. its a great 2-disk journey with never a dull moment. love how the the end just builds to an epic finale. it think Columbia are good with their pressings and with this one also enjoy!
  10. less is more i say also movies, TV shows, etc. generally all include stereo audio as this is what most viewers will be using, so it makes sense to do it well vs neglect it for the sake of surround
  11. i remember a similar thread on another forum. it concerned a yt clip of the GZ factory. I did a search and I think this is the vid below at the centre of discussion. if you watch carefully you might even spot who's hair and finger prints ended up on your latest GZ purchase. I also see in the comments there's another Thin Lizzy fan
  12. these helped my book shelf speakers that i had set on a 2.2m wide solid wood entertainment unit. just tightened everything up a little with a bit more attack, detail and focus. GLWTS
  13. love the title here by captain obvious so it should with 550HP... Video: 550 HP BMW M140i xDrive shows amazing acceleration https://www.bmwblog.com/2020/08/19/500-hp-bmw-m140i-xdrive/
  14. I have a sw515 - "High 270W Dynamic Power" i think you'll enjoy the step up from the Sony units and its a great price for a $1k+ rrp item. just keep in mind there's a reason REL and SVS etc. seem to hold their value more proper sub set up including placement, cross over, volume etc. is generally no simple task. there's plenty of good advise ( and bad probably) and tips out there so do your research and invest in some trial and error. enjoy!
  15. I think a new unit with streaming backed in is the way forward. The M10 being a solid contender. I've recently switched integrated amps and didn't use the physical remove on either but the app for each. If wife and daughter both have phones, then that's a remote for everyone.... or even use an old one that's just connected to wi-fi purely for managing streaming.
  16. streamer no DAC $2-2.5k Aussie made them hard to meet requirements there, even the first 2
  17. nice work can you share more info and/or pics on the base plate and feet replacement? I've PS-38 and at 40+ yrs it too looks to be is suffering from deterioration with the feet. it doesn't have a sprung floating chassis however so this difference may or may impact the feet involved.
  18. earlier - a bit too boundary and frantic for me at this stage in my jazz journey James Blood Ulmer - Free Lancing LP, Album CBS/Sony 25AP 2251 1981 Japan Now - complete change of pace generally think twice with "back to black" re-issues but this is deft and smooth and nicely puts the first class singing in the spot light Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong - Ella And Louis
  19. you're going to have to flip hearing by going ar$e-over-head so the forward orientation of your head and ears is maintained
  20. yeah i was thinking the same - your post beat me to it
  21. how are your ears themselves these days? maybe treat them to a nice clean out? i.e. a flush via a GP or specialist vs hooking in with ear buds. just a thought no malice. although for a larf i did think of suggesting to slip a bit blu tack or something in your right ear
  22. plus compared to new you can always sell them on with less of a hit to the pocket, sometime no more than the running round to ship or pick-up
  23. cheers i thought that might be the case, some organs have foot pedals (keys?) that would allow that?
  24. first spin after it came today really enjoying it, very much towards the blues end of the equation (they don'y credit a bass player but you hear someone walking it - I can't figure it out) 'Baby Face' Willette - Face To Face LP, Album, RE, 180 Blue Note, Blue Note, Blue Note, Blue Note B0029750-01, ST-84068, BST 84068, 84068 2019 US
