    Well now that you’ve summoned him and given him a head start. Only thing missing is some leather and whips!

    So I think that’s bedtime. I’ll check back in the morning, see what’s ensued :whistle:

    I’d much rather beg for something else from the Master :giggle::sneaky:

    I would misbehave so I get disciplined by the master. I want the master to remind how POWERFUL he is :sneaky:

    Can imagine that getting disciplined by the master will feel so good! ;)

    And handcuffs! Must make sure I’m a prisoner to you and cannot escape :sneaky:

    I like the sound of a head start too! :whistle::p Something I’m insane at giving :giggle:

    Just gonna drop this in here since they’ll never show up when I take a pic of the audio rack cause of where they’re placed.

    This is definitely a ‘better without grilles’ speaker.

    Yup. I’m just gonna grill them up when not in use since they’re so easy to take off.

    Ha thanks man, the rest of the system was already built when I got the deck, so it was an outlay of cash, but not as much as it looks like from the pic. I'm upgrading the cart and the stage this week too...

    Goodness.. After seeing some of the nice setups here, I almost feel inferior haha

    Anyway.. my somewhat primitive setup is essentially an Orbit turntable, 15 year old JBL bookshelf speakers, and a nine-year-old mid-range Sony A/V receiver with a phono input.

    We need pics in this thread ;)

    Also don’t worry I’m on 14 year old Sony amp & tannoy speakers lol! We’re not all at the top end :)

    That said the outboard phono stage I got earlier this year did make an enormous difference!

    I'm upgrading the stylus to the Ort Black and getting the Rega Aria stage. I get 30% off retail on both of those. Then I'll be moving on to a Nagaoka after that, to see what I think of the sound. But I wanna try the black first. And in a couple months the Arcam to replace my stupid Denon X3000.

    I don't think anyone here started out with what they have now- not the higher end systems anyway. It's a journey. Enjoy yours!

    Not many of us started with top of the line systems and eventually upgraded as age, knowledge, taste, budget, and marital status allowed.
