and yes, on both accounts but mainly on your recovery.
in the past five years or so, I’ve been told now four times I would not see the Holidays due to various types or forms of cancer. Pancreatic, adrenal, colon, and kidneys.
Once it was DVT, a 3ft. long blood clot developed in the femmoral artery of my leg following hip replacement surgery.
the attending Dr. said I had a 10% shot at survival.
You and I, are still here. Doctors ain’t God. God just uses some of them and sometimes does His own work too.
I hope the Luxman TT works out well for you, it sure seemd a nice setup when I saw it as a static demo at the recent Florida Expo.
very good luck and again, congrats 2 times!!
Thanks for the kind words. During this ordeal the enjoyment I got from my system was very important. Especially after my 2 operations that lasted seven hours. Couldn’t move around much and playing music had a very calming and uplifting feeling. My new TT not only sounds fantastic but reminds me of climbing that mountain. By the wayI’m in my 60’s and back to working 50+ hours a week. I still got a lot left in me. Stay positive and keep on fighting. As the old 60's phrase goes "Keep on Truck'n".
Wakethetown: I looked at Acoustic Signature, VPI Prime, Clear Audio DC Wood. But every time I saw this TT at my dealers store I had to have it. Smooth yet dynamic sound. Very quiet plus some of the features, detachable head, able to fine tune the speed w/the built in strobe. The build quality just had it over the other TT's. By the way Luxman is releasing a new TT the PD-151. Price is $3800 w/arm and dust cover. Also does 3 speeds.
Thanks luxmancl38. I enjoy it, and feel very fortunate to have it. The Kuzma tonearms seem to have quite a following. The tables however, seem to get overlooked in the US. I've seen so many threads that mention Brinkmann, AMG, TW... but somehow not so much Kuzma. Not that the other brands aren't fine products, but Kuzma tables seem to fly under the radar. I'm happy to share my thoughts on the PC-7 once I get up to the 30-40 hour mark. Here again, a cartridge that doesn't enter in to many $2K cartridge discussions. Certainly not as many as Ortofon Cadendza or Lyra Delos, for example.
