Next stop Decca SG
Well I'm glad you're having fun!

Pop in again if passing - I've stuck an Ortofon Cadenza Blue on the Dais/Spacearm and it is back to sounding as it should now.

SQ is obviously subjective, but I prefer Roksan's Tabriz over the Nima largely because I thought the quality of bass was better. The Aro has the bass tone that the Nima hasn't, albeit less than I'm used to with bearing arms.
Thank you Mark, that's very interesting experience both about the arms and the drive concept.
As most belt drives will have been suspended it's hard to figure how much of the Aro's performance you perceived was the belt and how much the suspension, but no doubt the idlers have a quality on their own.
With potential for breathtaking bass performance according to some reports I saw..

I assume a little info exchange about and around the items shown is tolerated as long as it doesn't become an excessively blown up discussion..?

New favourite turntable

Came across a NOS plinth a few months ago and decided to build the table from parts available on eBay, including a few reversible mods. When nearly finished, the table came across nicely, as the sound was much more defined und less "fuzzy" than the original.

Decided to go the whole way and mount an SME309 that I had kept stored for years. This arm made a big difference, as now the bass is more than impressive. It is not only powerful, but also well-defined and deep.

The setup gels much nicer than I normally would have thought. The Adikt is brisk enough to give some welcome edge to the sound.

I seem to remember our friendly host complaining about the clean looks of some hifi systems, so I thought I'd try to cover my lacking expertise in taking proper pictures behind a powerful filter that makes things look old and used. :-)





Best regards,
Oliver

Triode integrated valve amplifier

For some inexplicable reason I sold this last year but jumped at an unexpected chance to get it back.

http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e4...psmonfwvwx.jpg

Triode TRV-845SE - 20 watts/channel SET Class A with three pairs of triode valves (2 x 6sn7 then 2 x 2a3 driving 2 x 845).

Very nice project...is that a Rega P3..?
Covering your lacking expertise was quite successful, I'd say..the pics are great !
