Peter,

Thanks for posting the photo's. Does look a bit like an ET arm. A bit unclear how it all works though.

I spoke with my turntable guru, he say's that the last Adrianne he sold 3 years ago went for $1200CDN, so your price is very fair. Good luck selling it

Cheers,
Ron

The air is supplied to big black block. There are probably some holes inside a channel which produce enough pressure allowing the arm to slide. And that's all to it. All the other stuff is counterbalance and mechanism helping smooth lifting of the arm.

I've seen an ad in Buy and Sell around this time. Is the guru from Ajax?

No, my "guru" is Arthur Salvatore. He used to run High End Audio in the Beaches. Moved to Florida last year

Cheers,
Ron

So be ready for a big surprise. I bought my Ariadne from him 3 years ago for $1400. He was using Forsell and Jadis phono stage without cathode follower at the time.

Ah, so you know Arthur He told me that he's just getting his system together this week, can you imagine not having a system for almost a whole year When I saw his system last year, he was still using the Forsell and Jadis. I gave him some tips on his mods regarding his volume control, which he appreciated

I just did some experiments with granite and it seems that blown rubber sandwiched between two granite plates (and everything bolted together) has the least sonic signature of everything I tried before. My CD PRO sounds really good now. I'm building 4 more.

Hi Peter,

I have been using a pneumatic table, normally used with scanning electron microscopes, under my cd-player. It is exactly the design used by Rockport Technologies with their Sirius record player -- see photo. It is being driven by air. I can post photos of my own pneumatic table when I have assembled it. The sound is unbelievably coherent.
