  1. Hello all! I am a contributor to StereoNET and based in Dorset. I am a retired Director of the NHS, and have also worked for the MOD and in the private sector. I am a lifelong audio enthusiast and am a monthly contributor to Hi-Fi Choice magazine. I have also been asked to write technical album liner notes for US jazz singer, Lyn Stanley, and UK audiophile record label 'Chasing The Dragon'. I have a particular interest in valve audio design and am a devotee of vinyl and tape - I am a die hard analogue addict! I enjoy a wide range of music including classical, especially

  2. Listening to Metallica's Hardwired to Self Destruct. I played it a lot when I first bought it so thought it time to revisit while I'm working. For me it is probably a return to form, as much as I hate that phrase. Since the Black Album I've not really enjoyed a whole release from them til this. I've still seen them live and have not been to a bad 'tallica gig yet. However, some of their album choices weren't to my taste.

  4. Hi all from Down Under! I've noticed a lot of parts for Garrard projects seem to emanate from the UK, so I'd though I'd ask around. I'm an active member of Stereonet Australia. I'm after a 12" tonearm with removable head shells. Plan to set it up on a Garrard 401, running SPU cart's. My shortlist: 1. Groovemaster 2 with ti armature (and ideally VTA on-the-fly option) 2. SME 3012 (or 3012r). Needs to be in good condition, with great bearings and all parts. Preferably rewired with quality wire. 3. SAEC 506/30. Let me know if you have any options for sale! Also let

  5. Howdy, If anyone has any previous editions of Hifi Critic review mags, let me know. Nothing from current editions to, say, 5 years old. Post to AUS would be required. If you have copies lying around doing nothing, let me know, I'm looking for stuff to read. P.S. - you'll be more likely to catch me on the Stereonet AUS site...

  9. Hello all, Good to be on the site, I’m a 60 yr old who gave up grey and black modern kit , audiolab, mission etc to buy all the stuff I lusted after as a teenager hence a house full of vintage Sony, Trio, Quad, Sugden Marantz, A few Thorens , Lenco , walker, SME and lots of decca arms carts etc goodmans and B&W. The above sounds just as good as the modern stuff I’ve had and I’m lucky enough to own a 5650 V FET and TD124 Decca FFSS PRO combination which sounds stunning ! Currently rewiring A Decca London unipivot with the help of my highly intelligent Siamese cat !

  10. Thanks Marc, I will look out for the film. I think the second Pacific Rim we tried on Atmos which was great, but the film that the wife wanted to hear most of all is Star Wars A New Hope with the opening scene. This was the remastered version but non Atmos, but sounded absolutely superb. You could feel the Star Destroyer in the room.

  11. That's your earth connection, and yes you need it with a turntable. It doesn't matter whether you use the "U-shaped hook" at the end of the wire – you could just cut it off – but you'd still need to connect the bare wire to an earth terminal or "ground", as some people call it. If you don't, you're likely to get a 50Hz humming noise which will spoil your enjoyment of the music!

  12. I'd agree that the Monitor Audio S100 is the best from that list, for your intended purpose. If you have a little more to spend, the Acoustic Energy AE500 would be my choice. It's sweet, crisp and detailed – and one of the most musical small standmounters around right now. It would be a riot with the latest Rega Brio.

  14. My name is Heman and I have been ammeter of Computer Audiophile (based in the US) since 2009 and read it daily. My interest in high end audio began in the early 80's when I was working in London and purchased a Linn Sondek LP 12 TT with Naim Nait amp and Linn Kann speakers from Graham HiFi. I haven listen via digital sources such as my Map Laptop (Aurdirvana + with local files, and Roon with Tidal streaming, and an Auralic Mini using a variety USB DACs. Having a lot of fun and about to renovate my house and upgrade my HT system so as to "properly" incorporate my Deviale

  17. One Google Max speaker – very ordinary. Two Google Max speakers set up in a particular way – very impressive for the price. Summary: It is a bit of a mystery as to why but it is true and I can only assume that it may have something to do with the reflectional acoustics of the two mid-range drivers used in each Google Max. I have compared this setup with my existing obscenely expensive TRUE audiophile hi-fidelity setup and it has left me impressed enough to post this. Now before you start filling up this forum with too many questions/comments, let me just say that at this stage wha
