  4. Lenco PTP build... 65 pounds of analog goodness. She’s in the room now and will be fitted with a Fidelity Research arm this week. Three extra arm boards also for easy change out of tonearms.
  5. Using the Ken Uesugi pre/power amp combo together for the first time with the Jon Anderson Custom 604's
  6. I think once these new crossovers get some hours on them these things will open up to reveal even better sound than they already are producing. Really nice so far.
  7. Greg Metz STS modified Thorens TD124 MKII in custom plinth, with an Alfred Bokrand Custom Ortofon Tonearm mounted on a black sourced armboard, with a beloved brand new NOS Ortofon SPU Royal A cartridge, topped off with Nordost Quattro-fil phono cable.
  8. It can use either a 46 or 47 type power tube. It uses the 717a as a driver and it can use a 5ar4, 5ra4, GZ34, 5r4GW, or 274b as a rectifier without any changes. It is 13"d x13"w x18" tall and produces just under 2wpc and weighs roughly 40 pounds.

  13. I thought I would say hello and it's good to be here. Though I am on the other side of the world I have been to Dee Why and Sydney Australia. It will be nice to see what others have to offer here in reading information and photos. Cheers Charlie
