Default Greetings from Glasgow

Hi Everyone,

My name is Martin and I live and work in Glasgow.
I've had a casual interested in Hi-Fi for about 5 years since my father finally gave me his old Motown records and I got a Project Debut 3 to play them on. I've just made a bit of a jump up and bought a vintage LP12. I'm interested in DIY stuff so I thought I'd start to join in rather than just lurking around and hopefully pick up some projects to keep me out of trouble

My current system is:

Linn LP12 (serial 003185) with SME 3009 improved arm and a Cartridge Man Music Maker Mk3
Cambridge Audio 640P phono stage
Pioneer A400 Integrated Amp
Pioneer PD-S502 Cd Player
Mordant Short M25i floor-standers

Any suggestions?
My first thoughs were for a power supply for the LP12. I've been looking at Geddon clones and have a toridoal for it already out of a NAD 319 thats busted. Just need to work out the windings.

You could certainly start there... being a speaker guy i'd tend to start at the other end...
