Thank you, they fulfill their mission, the CEC is belt drive, it was said that Micro Seiki manufactured it.
The MS is DD, and I bought it used many years ago, I liked the possibility to vary the mass of the arm to use it with some "difficult" MCs, like the Denon DL 103. I am close to fulfilling my golden dream, haha !

Then try to give a final closure to your pre phono project, so many changes take away the desire to do it !

It's common for posts to deviate from the subject in hand as we all just love to offer an opinion - sometimes helpful - sometimes not!

You and I had a little 'misunderstanding' some time ago and I trust we can now consign that to the dustbin of history!

Yes, I remember that misunderstanding, but actually you were right, it was something about the cables.
And yes, you can consider it "ancient history",
of course !

Several people on the street, or in a bar/pub, or a restauraant, having a conversation, perhaps starting on a particular subject.....
Is it not unusual that at times, the subject tends to wander to something maybe related, maybe not, perhaps something comes to one person's mind that makes them think about the different subject and express their thoughts?


It's called Human Nature.


Then, of course, you have those that become annoyed when this happens, and express their displeasure.
So they, like steering a car, attempt to take control to control the path of conversation.


It's called aggressive control.

There have been no changes (other than a BOM update done in IIRC April or May).

About 30 board sets have been sold and at least 20 built - others in progress.

I'm sorry--too much wine maybe? But this (above) is so amazingly funny!
