I have not a clue.....but I definitely have a thing for WEIGHT....

My speakers weigh approx. 250 Kg a piece
My pre-amp 132 kg...
My ebony rack 80 kg...

So I take it that this standalone cd transport will be an appropriate match..

Sorry but that is way of topic...I'll post the links

Anyway today I made the tiptoes for the cd transport rack..

I used ebony and stainless steel tiptoes and made M8 on one end to be able to level the rack quite exact later on and on the other end the woodthread for into the legs...

It was quite a job but very satisfied...

And a proud close-up...

The stainless steel toes I bought in a local store where the were called "curtain-rail-stops".....and about 15 dollars a piece so not quite a High End price...

Default shigaclone TOC -skipping and searching

i want to report a couple of possibly helpful observations relating to the TOC (Table Of Contents) reset.

1. when playing a new CD without resetting the TOC the laser head spends a lot more time searching for tracks making it advisable to always reset the TOC for each CD.

2. if the same CD is removed after TOC reset (something i do on occasion to center the magnet) and then put back it will skip intermittently. this never happens if the TOC is reset after replacing the CD.

hope this helps.
