Good stuff...nice to know your system is making music again.
Any idea about the CD player issue? Do you suspect a circuit problem or the player itself?

Well, actually some slight tweaking of the bass and treble, together with repositioning of the speakers has really improved things, the problem was The pre amp and amp are near the speakers, but some distance away from the listening position, so any adjustments made sounded totally different when sat down, it was a bit of a back and forth to do, but eventually with slight changes each time it reached a point where I thought, Yep, I can totally live with this, So all's good at the moment.

Don't know if you have read the thread I started regarding the Rega Anti Skate Belt?

I've got the arm off and am in the process of making a jig to hold the arm in position while I work on it, I've been taking some pictures as I go, so if it all works out and I don't wreck the arm in the process I'll post them up so any other members who have the same problem Can follow up on the idea and maybe even improve on it, It's no work of art, but if it does the job that's good enough for me.
