Planned Upgrades for 2019

Post by dan steel » Thu Jan 03, 2019 10:49 am

Now we are in the New Year, has anyone got any planned upgrades to their system. I went mad last year changing all my amps from Linn to Naim and speakers from Linn to Kudos, speaker cable from Linn to Chord.
Hoping to do some changes to the old fruit box this year
Urika, Radikal plus cartridge.
None foreign parts LP12 - Naim CD - Naim Amplication - Kudos Speakers.

No changes planned, just expecting to enjoy the music. Need to listen to some lps that I haven't played in a while...I keep playing the same Steely Dan favorites over and over. :o :smt023 :smt020

xss30 xss19 xss19 xss30 System sounds good, I'd be afraid to monkey with anything. :smt018
Original 1978 Fluted Afromosia LP12, Ekos 2, Lyra Kleos SL and lots of other stuff from the 70's that still work fine.

Nothing major planned for this year (well I did more than enough last year with the replacement DV XX then the Keel Urika and Kudos Super 20's)

The mains loom is going to have an overhaul, changing a few plugs and fuses and a general cleaning of all mating surfaces.

No major plans this year I think I've done rather well recently. :oops:
Mind you if Linn come out with a new set of fruit box hinges that actually hold the lid up I'd be tempted. :roll:
This topic might be a bit depressing for dealers. :smt005

Them Linn hinges have been a problem for years, mind you I leave the lid off when playing. 8)

The ones I got from Peter a year or so back keep my clear lid supported perfectly (though I am also topless when playing records :shock: )

No plans for me either (as yet!). Last year I had only intended either to DR the NAP500 or to upgrade the NDS to ND555. In the end I did both, so I need to keep a lid on expenses this year - or so I’m told!

Not an upgrade as such but a straight replacement of my cartridge.
