Let's just hope that Deep Thought's concerns about announcing the answer to life, the universe and everything were wrong: "You're not going to like it; you're really not going to like it".

I'll have to wait until Peter receives the batch of Keel/A sub chassis before I get my Krystal. So let us know how you find it, please.

Regards, Clive
Oooh Clive look at your post number as I reply. :shock:
I'm bursting at the seams to be Keeled and Krystalised. :smt007

I can actually sense your excitement Jim.

I hope that the cartridge runs in swiftly - always a horrible time when the doubt monsters set in.

I remember my DV20XL2 well. I thought the thing was pre-menstrual with it's mood swings until it all clicked into place.

Health to enjoy it Sir :smt052

Will have to consult the Krystal Ball for the rest.

Whenever I'm in this situation I spend ages fretting about which album I should listen to first after the upgrade. OK, I realise that with a cartridge you won't hear it at its best until it's run in, but I'm sure we must all go through this mental wrangle. So what's your planned first album?
