Nice one James,
Enjoy your new record collection.
Just out of interest did you get any trade against your bent DVXX2mk2?

Peter charged me the Exchange price which I am forwarding to the Insurance Company. They can hardly complain of a £250ish discount

Out of interest Peter swapped my HoL mat for a LINN one. The difference was obvious from the first note, but I preferred the HoL and Peter preferred the LINN. Maybe thats because what we are used to, but I feel theres going to be some experimentation once this lot is run in.

Ah but you can still get a new Linn Mat. :smt020
Get the proper one on and let the synergy flow.its all good. 8) :smt023
You forgot to change the end of your signature. :oops: :wink:

Only five albums in and its settling nicely. How can I descrive the improvement?

Well, as I said before the noise floor has, well, fallen through the floor. Surface noise as well as the general background is far lower. As for the music, veils lifted, curtains dropped blah blah you know the words by now. Its just so much better in all aspects.

Thanks again to Peter (for his magic) Wayne (for the coffee) and Phil (for the chat) and everyone for being simply the best.

... and not forgetting Peters Pixies for replacing my record collection

PS ... and some HF distortion that I took to be from the Keilidhs has gone as well. Just goes to show that I know nuffink

Great to hear your thrilled with your new additions James. Who would have thought that banjaxing your cart would lead to a Keel/Urika ...... 8) ........ I'm a big fan of the Urika myself ............. :smt020

Thanks Adam, I had 'planned (well hoped) to get the Urika/Keel this year, but it wouldn't have happened if I wasn't forced to visit Peters.

10 hours under their belt and everything is sounding simply better (DV XX, Urika, Shawlines all need 'burning in') Guess I had better spin a few more platters to get the hours up :smt023
