Responses from mgattmch

What a fascinating post and many interesting/informative responses. Clearly, ATC are a well respected manufacturer of great speakers. Must admit, I am also tempted to explore upgrading from my current speakers to SCM100ASL. I heard them last year ... 
Why don't they record in ‘surround stereo’?
If you have a 4k Blu-ray player, try the Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival blu-ray disc, all are recorded in stereo and surround sound. The surround sound tracks all sound amazing IMHO.  
I heard a pair of ATC SCM100 ASL on demonstration at Axpona last year, partly demonstrated using streamed electronic music. All I can say is, the very best speakers I heard at the show; dynamic, realistic and beautifully made. If I had the room, I... 
What a great show
looking forward to seeing this show, thanks for the tip.  
Is Aurender N10 still a good option
Yes, for me the upgrade from a Bluesound Node to the N10 was night and day. See my post on this experience:

Oppo UHP 205 Universal Player
I have an Oppo UDP-205, in the 4 years I have owned it, performance has been flawless. Blu-ray and 4k UHD disc playback is about as good as it gets IMHO. Same goes for multi channel audio.

Here is an interesting post on Audigon discussing the superiority of 15ips 2T tape SQ versus vinyl or digital: All I can say is; IMHO 15ips 2T tape can have the best... 
How Much Do Aesthetics Factor Into Your Decisions?
Great question, no right or wrong answer here, this is purely a personal choice. In my case, the aesthetics of a HiFi system in my living room are important, I don’t want to look at an ugly collection of boxes whilst listening to music. Case in po... 
Building a 100 album vinyl collection 3 must have albums are?
If you can stretch the budget, MFSL One-Step Ultradisc are about as good vinyl records get IMHO: 1. Muddy Waters - Folk Singer 2. Eric Clapton - Unplugged 3. Crosby Stills and Nash This is what Michael Fremer said about the Santana Abraxas MFS... 
Vintage Gyrodec TT power supply question
Here is a great article detailing the history of the GyroDec:  
Vintage Gyrodec TT power supply question
boywondr84, sure can, a lot more expensive than just replacing the power supply though. Have you checked which motor you have? Two ways to do this; send Michell Engineering your deck sn and they will tell you. Simpler, look at the motor, if there ... 
Vintage Gyrodec TT power supply question
At the risk of stating the obvious, early Michell Engineering turntables had AC motors, newer ones (2001 onwards?) have DC motors. Consequently, if you have a pre 2001 GyroDec, the standalone upgrade PSU Michell Engineering now sell (HR Power Supp...
