Your System Pictures.

You mean there's more to HiFi than a LP12?

Considering whether a black fluted Stiletto might be a bit too much black 8)

When I was at Peter's the other week I asked about whether a fluted stiletto with a silver top plate was possible. Apparently it's theoretically possible but there might be one or two 'technical' hurdles to overcome. Nobody has yet asked for one ......... :smt018

It would be good if Tangerine Audio would investigate the possibility of a smaller corner radius in the front right hand corner of the Stiletto. It just doesn't look right to me with a right angle corner on the armboard.

Then again, you do have rather a nice looking Harban Wenge plinth there, Chris. Are you really sure you'd be happy to move away from that?

I really don't think that I could Clive - and I agree about the corner radius too

I have just read in the blue place that Tangerine Audio has now resolved the problem of the rounded corners. This now presents a real dilemma... :smt017

It's a pity they didn't do it right in the first place.
I wouldn't have liked to have forked out under compromise only to find I could have got my wishes after all.
There was lots of arguing about it being ok but now a U turn at the thought of more business.
I wouldn't fancy my Urika and Trampolin would last long under all that weight no doubt that'll be another money spinner idea.
There goes the low mass theory. 8) :smt023

...... and Tangerine are working on a sKorpion for Urika too. Although the silver top plate is not on the agenda at the moment due to risk of bleeding between the parts. I'm thinking of putting my Wenge plinth for sale on eBay - what do you think ... £2,500 :D

Got my Nak refurbished and hooked it up. I love nostalgia, but soundwise it is hard to beat!
