    Yeah, reminds me of the mirror-finish shown in the Burmester ads. What are your plans for the older PC?

    All of that (AQ 1000, AQ Thunder, Linn LK240s) were traded towards this so I didn't have to pay the full $4k price out of pocket

    Ok I just acquired:
    Audioquest Niagara 5000 conditioner
    Audioquest Hurricane high current PC 2m (20amp)
    Rega Fono phono preamp

    Also made a granite stand with feet for the PC to sit on.

    41d3jdpucygf.jpeg

    If you ever want to make some money, I need 2 speaker bases from granite, about 10" x 15" each, no feet. Name your price....

    So, I did the granite because we have a shop but for shipping or supplying products its such a barrier to entry with the weight. I did it because it cost me nothing.

    On a side note, I am doing some research right now on some metal fabrication. I saw what some of these stands and racks can go for ( @dskip s room) and my best friend runs a full service metal fabrication factory. I am going to draw up some ideas and bounce them around here to get some feedback and see if there's some traction.

    Local granite shop would probably charge around $30 sq ft to cut some slabs to your specs. FWIW, as Joe mentioned - granite is very heavy

  • joecoulsonjoecoulson Posts: 4,176
    For example, that slab i cut is 18x18 and weighs close to 35lbs
    waaaaay to heavy to ship and make coin

    now if you like in the GA area, call me

    Just sent an email to Suncoast Audio saying send me an invoice for a Black X1. I have got to stop thinking of new gear when I am drinking beer. :)

    Currently in the market for a new rack and saw you mention Solidsteel. I'll be in Munich May 10 & 11, and got all excited when I saw this on their website:

    Agree! Especially with Blanton's single barrel being my personal favorite "daily driver" and since I can't find any more local bottles of Barterhouse (Orphan Barrel series) 20yo, it has been a very Blanton-y year so far.
