What in Analogue Have You Bought Today?

Recommended Posts

A new (old) TT from SNA member. Rega Planar 2 with Linn arm and retrofitted platter and mat. Excellent transaction and very satisfied purchaser. I’ve ordered some new cartridges and have some more setup work to do, but a happy camper from the get-go!

 

Oh, and the phonostage is handcrafted from SNA member and the Bewitch tube integrated amplifier is from SNA member (as is a MF A3.5 CDP which you can’t see and interconnects).

Well the Dynavector DRT XV-1s arrived yesterday and I quickly did a rough setup with my basic paper protractor that I used with my previous cartridge. But I think the fancy spread deserves better treatment than that so rather than paying someone a couple of hundred clams to set it up for me I decided to DIY and ordered the Dr Feickert protractor, KAB Speedstrobe & Analogmagik software to do it up right. 

Even w/o a proper setup I can say this cartridge is really something special.

 

I've got it tracking at 2 grams on the AM 6 & the Valab set at 100 ohms & 60db gain. Once the setup gear gets here I'll start to tweak it to the max.

Finally got myself a copy of the comeback album.....AC/DC's "The Razor's Edge" 2009 or 2018 reissue (not sure which but both are George Marino remasters), German pressing (Optimal Media).....at a decent price.👍

Unfortunately, according to the seller of the above, the item "was damaged by the courier" and was returned to them, necessitating a full refund to me as they are now "out of stock".....sounds fishy to me!😪

Yesterday I bought an XLR -> RCA adaptor (2 actually)

Simple, yeah?

Apparently not. The female to female adaptor was required but not available at Jaycar.

First up, I was supplied with a a male XLR fitting which had to be exchanged.

 

Imagine my disappointment at needing to buy (extra cost as well as inconvenience) two extra RCA (F-> F) adaptors.

 

At least my VRDS-10 transport now connects to the DEQ2496 and into the pre-amp

Well - a well cared for and rebuilt Koetsu Black - and an appropriate album to test it out 5e2032f08d66472fcfa3735f52f3615f.jpg&key=01e1d54a361a4b051eb1b577d10c334dc45f57c0966b5ab3d0c7ecc345178153dff514bc5868be712773734a109593b7.jpg&key=6c5d69c9db191101a2637444131eb0f921d2d57e66cecd908d30693af0bb88668436d0bf6596fa56d52e00b379a1cf39.jpg&key=0e99efd9d62e4542db71b8eecd35cf70b45456b29a1ae6d0998a774d8897441f

I thought you'd named your cat Koetsu.

 

Or it was eyeing up your cart to pounce on...
