Had a pair of BE-20's though - very nice.
i hope to one day be that mad.
i had a stall at the record fair in glebe yesterday - very glad that nobody purchased my 180g copy of moussorgsky's 'pictures at an exhibition'! listening to it now, is very nice!
how are thew valves coming along on breaking in?
i don't really like nordorst - tried the valhalla on my phono stage and wasn't very impressed. i find silver cable a little too bright and thin sounding.. i end up with some tricon analog cable from synergistic; nice and warm, full-bodied sound.
kondo is made by audio note, right?
which $100k turntables have you heard?
analog is hard to get right - need to finely match the tt, arm, cart, phonostage, cables and stand.
digital is much more easier to get good sound. when analog is done right, the difference is just in the warmth of it. it definitely has more air than digital, but you're correct in that it also depends on the lp. recording and condition plays a major role. if you don't own many lp's it's not really worth the hassle though.
Sold all my vintage hifi kit (Yamaha, marantz) and currently selling Mordaunt Short MS10's.
Bought new Ugly Cables interconnects, and moving my rear speakers (Krix Brix) to the study as there's limited space - will replace the rears with some Equinox or KDX or whatever's easily available.
Turned my sub back on after 5 years of living in an apartment - its nice to have < 30Hz again
EDIT: Anyone know where to get foam pads for Sennheiser's?
