I just want the old one.... one kilogram of pure platinum. Not worth the imagined millions (except as a possible collectors item) the current value of $26,477.20 would provide a nice little shot in the arm. With that I could get my well sunk and a good house foundation poured. (I would also keep an asortment of the best electrical contacts available.)

Most of us have at least a few atoms floating about in there, even if there is quite a lot of space between them.

^ Thanks Tim!

Undertaking the renovation of old Garrards is evidence enough of our shared sense of humour!

Particularly if they've eaten a kilogram of baked beans!

Indeed!


BTW, I haven't forgotten my promise to keep you abreast of the SL95 progress. It's still in the queue.

I hadn't forgotten either Tim. Hurry up, I'm not getting any younger!

P.S. Talking about kilograms - I've discovered that, whereas the mass of the SP25 MkII platter is 1.88kg, the mass of the SP25 MkIII platter is a mere 0.96kg - and it's slightly smaller in diameter. Newer does not necessarily mean better!

Sometimes I think my life revolves around turntables!

... Put enough turntables in a room, switch them on, now they revolve around you.
