    The Pro-Ject table I had for years did that - something in the tonearm
    got the new Rega, had no buzzing, but had a weird hiss with the Vincent that was only prevalent when volumes were high, but it still bothered me. Now with the Rega Fono pre - no noise at all.

    @halo Have you ever tried removing the turntable's dust cover while playing a record? Someone told me recently that it's advantageous to do so, as it cuts down on the resonance in the soundwaves being picked up by the turntable and getting transferred back into the plinth.

    Yes, I have, I just didn’t do it for the photo :)

    I've heard Victors set up. Rather exquisite sound reproduction.

    Thanks Russ!

    Thanks Joe! Those IKEA Kallax shelving units fit the LPs quite nicely :)

    Nice job! I have a fish tank in my background too. I have the pump system on a light switch so I can turn off the gurgling sound when doing critical listening though. Fish give me dirty looks initially but I think they really enjoy the music in the long run...

    I have not. But at this point w them hanging over the tank, I’m just gonna leave them. They basically point right at the ears with the current configuration.

    So, @Mike Reeter inspired me to post an update. We got some new carpet, and with that decided to do away with the full bookcase behind the couch.
    Made a new base cabinet hutch to hold The tank and store records and whatnot.
    With that; I had to put the surrounds into the ceiling. Much cleaner look we think. And the sound is better as the speakers are an upgrade over the old bookies that were back there. More room to breath for all this gear.

    Nice space! I so hope for you that the BIG BAD Adante center channel finds a home in your beautiful space. A full Adante front would be killer! Those towers are massive!

    I'll just leave this 65lbs brute here to egg you on! LOL!

    It is on my wishlist. But unfortunately not in the cards for me as it would require a major overhaul of the center rack. Which presents nice symmetry with the setup. It’s a beast and would make EVERYTHING move off to the side. Not worth it. The Def Tech CLR is no slouch and serves very well in that spot.

    Not a setup per say (although there is a Sonos in there) but had to show this one off. Custom built ins in the dining room.
