Please remember that Electric 'bites' and bites hard. Also, depending on what you are actually going to do, you may need to get in a registered electrician.

IF i was going to go for a quick improvement it would be the Saurm T. Made a hell of a difference to the Akurate Radikal.

I thought that you might have plumped for Sarum T on the Urika :smt020

Just taking time to read back on this, i reckon my next bit to do is the cartridge. The sarum is a good idea . Another trial is the akula v plateau v keel.

Will your arm fit all of those sub-chassis, or will you get a better arm? :D :smt023

True - I was thinking that the Ekos SE might be a next best alternative option, but that would be rather silly

sorry for my long absence. kore ,keel, akula and plateau. My original plan was to stick with the uniarm, after we had the session listening to the sub chassis. It took a track by Style Council to make the decider. The plan was for Keel with the uniarm. But an Aro came up at a good price. So on 10/02 I picked up my Aro Keel deck from Peter. Listening through the 808 /500 system was great. To be honest only when i got home and listened thrugh my own set up did i really hear the sheer quality of the new deck. I have still kept the Dynavector 20x2l, its basically become my refernce point. I really liked the Kleos SL you could hear the quality over the standard Kleos and Kandid.
