..some people just can't leave well enough alone... If he HAS to spend money, I am sure it can be thrust elsewhere for a bigger bang.

It's nice to see that someone keeps on trying to improve on their system. Some people trade in their cars every year so I see nothing wrong with doing the same with audio equipment. It's their money more power to them.
I like people who have more disposable income than me, it gives me the opportunity to buy their used equipment at a good savings.
If you can afford it go for it.
As Downunder says.....you know what I think about the Copperhead.
But, surprisingly, since Thomas from Raven sent me the stainless steel spacers to elevate the DaVinci 12" Grandezza so that its locking collar grips tightly, its performance is as good as the Copperhead and different enough in presentation to be totally intriguing.
As Jon Valin says in his thoughts on AV Guide, the DaVinci is the best pivoted arm he has heard, and the equal of the Walker Proscenium linear tracker.
Halcro,nice to hear from you.I'm really glad you got things worked out(I should be so lucky,as of late)!!
Very interesting point,you make as to differing but equal perspectives!!I say this because you were SO into the "Snake" thing,way back.-:)
Btw,my son is visiting Australia soon,the lucky dude!NO,NO he has NOT the slightest interest in Audio.He loves tennis though,but I can still kick his butt rather easily-:)
Nadal winning Wimbledon,would be akin to me getting my rig's gremlins worked out bt labor day(here in the U.S.)...
Basically a good chance,but don't go to Vegas with it!
Ya gotta use more wrist,and less shoulder,but still take the ball on the rise!This allows for quick direction changes too -:)Sadly,one needs young legs to do this consistently.
BTW,I've been spending more time at the gym,and alot less on a court.I don't feel so bad....because now in my fifties,there is a nice bit of aches and pains from a good "hit"!....ALOT more for "me"!!....I got so I could not sit through a movie,after playing singles,even two days later(won't play doubles)due to aches and pains.Why?.....Because I'm old!!-:)....In damn good shape too,but fagedabout serious tennis for me anymore....."Badabing"!
But being able to have a really lengthly listening session really takes the mind off stress/pain....No?...I really love being snowbound in winter and cracking into my big music collection!
Btw,I "always" knew there was more to your Davinci!I'm really happy for you!!
Raul he is NOT unhappy,but since he is going to send in his Cosmos and pre/phono for updating this month,he figures he would like to check out "all" possible" ways to realistically improve his set-up,all in one shot.
The guy has a few bucks,and spends it on his passions.There "are" worse ways to spend one's money!
Btw,since the orig post(by me,for him)he has decided not to sell his Phantom....
Yet,he is "constantly" looking for ways to improve his set-up.What can I say?...
As long as it makes him happy,as he is a really good guy!
