Great work Malcolm,
It looks like you managed to keep the display and function buttons in one piece..and that is one hell of a puck
Very nice setup..

Todat I made a stunning approvement to the clone...

Not for beginners but I guess with a lot of patience ...

I made a new laser assembly board out of aluminum...

It took me 10 hours to drill/file/measure etc..

I also exchanged the steel laser guidance rod for stainless steel and all the screws for brass....

I kid you not but for me the change was as great as putting a new clock in...

Beautiful differences immediately noticeable....especially the pianoconcert of Chopin with Kristian Zimmerman...what a colour on the piano and how quiet everything....stunning...

Sweet!

I`m amazed at how far you are going with your pittbull... Pretty cool it actually made a difference.

Is your pittbull surpassing your Wadia yet?

Yes for me in my set-up the structural difference is there.....and the plusses outweigh the minusses by far....

I still have a few tricks up my sleeve...so maybe I can take care of the last details....

It is much more analog like...incredible just how much natural colour there are on the instruments....for me I do not want to go back to the Wadia anymore.....the flow of the music is addictive

I hate selling my audio-equipment dus I will find a nice spot for it...


Ps
Only kidding...it goes probably next to the Revox A77
