      Humour is not your thing. Stick to buying cars and watches no one wants.

      Just grabbed myself a Lovan rack - 5 shelves made from 21mm thick toughened glass. Brings the combined weight of my single source, 2 speaker system up to 413kg!

    20. 12-06-2009 04:01 AM #20
      is each shelf vibration isolated, or do you put your gear on mounts or plinths?

    21. 12-06-2009 07:49 AM #21
      The whole thing is mass dampened, rather than having plate isolation. If I had a TT, I might do it differently, but for digital, it is already overkill.

    22. 12-06-2009 08:39 AM #22
      overkill is good; you're slippin'!

      if you are into vinyl, audio connection are trying to shift a clearaudio statement tt for $85k.
      bargain, that will last forever.

      Pass. The TT may last lifetime, but not the media.

      if you're talking about the availability of vinyl, then yes, it's around, but not in great amounts, and god knows if the next generation of audiophiles will keep the vinyl candle burning?
      if you already have a substantial collection of records, then this tt will bring them to life like you've never heard before. if you don't, and are not willing to dig the crates at record fairs, nor scour the internet for
      o/s suppliers, then stick to your digital media; it's the future, after all....



    26. 12-06-2009 07:34 PM #26
      where did you source your itransport from? an alternative i'm looking into is the nd-s1.

      I dunno, I think with the rise of digital music and the associated cost for what is essentially buying fresh air, Vinyl is well placed for a resurgance, its more of a boutique item and as we know douchebags love the air of exlcusivity and many artists are going out of their road these days to release albums on vinyl in special editions where more thought has gone into the production, i dunno i think its just nice to hold and feel something and be able to read liner notes without squinting or wondering wtf that is on a cd cover thats too small to see.

      I guess the internet has kinda ruined all the mystery and fun of follwing music and the stories and so forth, but i still dig alot of releases on vinyl i probably should have bought but cbf'd as i dont have a turntable anymore and havent bought any in years, but i have boxes in the roof

      That and the sound of a needle hitting PVC is probably one of the best in the world

      Yeah, i really do have to get me a turntable again sharpish.

      yep, vinyl definitely sound warmer and got more character than any cd or wavefile....haha it's so more exciting than digital in everyway. also, many more obscure releases on vinyl

      I bought it in the UK. Given Sterling is so crap, there are some bargains to be found there. Haven't heard of the nd-s1??


    33. 12-06-2009 10:25 PM #33
      i've noticed the itransport readily available from a few uk vendors. the nd-s1 is the same deal by onkyo but at almost half the price and apparently is as good.
