Clive - it pained me to write it but I was trying to be pragmatic. You make a good point if an Aro can be sourced and there is a Keel/a available still, but buying both and a Radikal first would be costly. Ray's got a really good spec LP12 already 8)
Chris ,
You were spot on mate :smt023
ARO's in a unopened boxes for sale on a well known auction site.
Thats the best laugh i've had since Clive asked Graham if his RCM was any good at cleaning warped records.. :roll:
I don't know what I have done to offend you, but you seem to have decided to direct your spite and bitterness at the most innocent questions I ask or points I make. This is quite odious.

If you read again what I wrote about Aros you'll see that I was referring to secondhand Aros from an auction site. Whilst I did see a new in box Aro on eBay about 18 months ago, I doubt there will be any more. Regarding cleaning of warped discs, I am sure we all have some discs which aren't perfectly flat.

Ray,
Linn started production of Dynamic Radikals a few years ago and produced a Dynamik retro fit for those that already had Radikal's.
It was a massive upgrade for the better.
It was around £500 when i did mine.
So don't worry you have a good one. :smt023

Ray,
You will love what the Radikal does to your deck but try and have a listen to the Tranquility on its own before Peter pulls it apart to fit the Radikal so you can hear what it brings to the party in its own right. :smt023
