  • Put Dynamat Xtreme on my left speaker stand column. Then I was like....wow.....sounds terrrible..........completely flat.......the bass is sounding funny. Turned out the subwoofer must've blown an output transistor on power up or something LOL

    Very nice! I need to look into one for my Thorens. I hope I saved the hinge pins. I’ve been without the original cover for some time and just use a sacrificial lp to keep dust off the platter mat.

    Figured that a proper evaluation of @GlennDog Cary Pre-Amp would take at least 5 years to complete! :smile:wdxunuem577b.jpeg
    Edited to say just kidding! :smile:
    Old Pic: I like that amp stand on the left. In 2-3 years I’ll be in the market for several, inexpensive (2 each) 1, 2 & 3 tier stands. I confess being thrifty, most everything I’ve seen seems pricey and, because the correct word escapes me, glitzy.

    I picked up a pair of 703’s and I’ve been burning them in.

    Almost done with the diy stands.
