    Mike, I agree. Nice rack. Are the shelves adjustable in height?

    Can you pan out to see your front wall? I'd like to see what you have there. Looks like acoustic treatments??

    Mike that room looks so great, I'll post it again for you.

    I remember the front view with the panels which I saved, but I don't remember seeing the turntable to the right.

    I'm sure it is relaxing to sit there even without music and enjoy what you have accomplished.

    Thank you Harry, very kind of you. Being Retired, I'm afforded the time to set and enjoy anytime I feel the 'need', which is about every day :)

    I have been told that the 2m bronze I now have on this turntable needs about 50 hours to break in. I put about 8 on it today. I think it has about 15 now and seems to be opening up.

    I have the same table, and also had a 2m Bronze on it..but I ended up going to a Denon DL-103 LOMC, and for me, it just opened up a whole new ear opening experience. It just took that table up a few notches..these Denon’s are special.
