Tekton Design Moab
Hey Miller, it sounds like you are getting excited! How many sleeps to go?I’d love to see how much you need to re-arrange your room to tune them in during and after burn in.Do you still recommend subs with the Moabs? Cheers 🇦🇺 
Speakers that are a great value!
Ahh. Now we are getting to the point. Kenjit has in the past, in initial posts, burns ALL speaker manufacturers, and as such pours ridicule on all audiophiles saying all of us were wrong. Only Kenjit called himself correct.NOW the story is about “... 
Camp designations
I hear. Therefore I enjoy. 🇦🇺 
Cool it!
Kijanki, they are the ones. I have 3, 2 in 1 rack and 1 in another. I got the ones with the lcd display, the T8 series. All are quiet and components are cool. My region in Aus can get to 43C but we average 34C over summer (32C inside). Components ... 
Cool it!
Definitely the acinfinity component fan systems. These are sized to match the size of a typical component and have various models that blow the hot air to the front or back, top or bottom of the amp and are temp activated or remotely triggered by ... 
Phono pre for Technics SL-1000R (Esoteric E-02?)
I also use a Luxman EQ-500 for my 3 turntables (cartridges). It’s actually half vacuum tube, half SS but sounds beautiful. I use Jan Allaerts MC1 in each of 2 TTs and a Ortofon cadenza bronze in the 3rd. 🇦🇺 
Cd318check out www.kyronaudio.com.au and look up the Gaia. Full range, no box. 🇦🇺 
What was your most disappointing album purchase?
Bob540My darling wife introduced me to “It’s a Beautiful Day” artists and Lp in 1970. Studio version of White Bird is the only version worth appreciating. Agreed! Their album “Marrying Maiden” was good too. From there on they lost their way. 🇦🇺 
What was your most disappointing album purchase?
Enigma MCMXC a.D. was genius by Michael Cretu. The CROSS of changes was the beginning of an exponential curve to the bottom.At least now you can test the music on Tidal or your choice, and go for the vinyl if good.I remember the days you could req... 
It was 20 years ago today...
Well done all those 20+ years contributing to the forum 🥳I do see a trend though. Those relatively recent joiners have enormous numbers of posts compared to the 20+ group. The quiet achievers? 🇦🇺 
Tidal/OPPO streaming issue
I don’t have a problem running Tidal through my Oppo 205 via Roon. Great sound. 🇦🇺 
I have listened to the NS-5000 speakers via the Mx-5200 series amps and the GT-5000 tt. The sound is impressive.I haven’t listened to the Sony AR series yet but I will listen to any speaker/ system to expand my experience and knowledge.I read litt... 
Black vs. Colored Vinyl
@mammothguy54 Thanks for the information re mofi dire straits. I will be looking to order ASAP.Agree with your experience with picture vinyl. 😬. A🇦🇺 
Black vs. Colored Vinyl
I would think the vinyl composition was different at that stage. From then the vinyl used in the mass stampings of the mid 60’s to the 80’s again was a different composition. Then the release of CDs slowed everything vinyl (like the virus). There ... 
Black vs. Colored Vinyl
The early coloured vinyl discs were terrible. A decade on, the composition of the vinyl mix has improved markedly. Having said that, as long as the dye used is consistent over the whole disc, that sound should be as good as the current black. That...
