Great post, thank you! I'll watch it this evening as it's 50 minutes long. I can tell you know though, he could have saved a lot of money by just calling Genelec.

Having said that, always nice to see people with an overwhelming passion

edit: HOLY CRAP - that's the biggest turntable I've ever seen!

And he could have better sound (at lower cost) by replacing the record player with a digital source. :D :D :D


...Well, I guess you can't say "better" if you like the "warm crackle" of a vinyl record!

'Best' as in 'the ear of the beholder'.

He has a CD player too. The interesting thing is given the choice between the two, 'evidently' he still listens to vinyl and seems ok with it.  Please, can we not go sideways here, as analog versus digital isn't really relevant to this particular discussion. Thanks.

I've always liked the idea of 3-channel.

My stereo (also 5.1 Surround) system is my desktop computer.  LOL!  As they say to each their own.

I didn't call them, but I made a jump and acquired 1031a speakers, which serve me as my media speakers, watching movies and shows, and listening to music. I just need a better preamp, which can feed a proper line output... there is time.

I loved how the guy answered the comment how that turntable looks like sophisticated torture device... "it is, it is", LOL

He actually has surround system, that middle speaker is centre speaker. I seriously doubt he uses it for stereo playback. How it would be used, anyway?

My understanding is this is a stereo rig, with left and right tweeter banks on either side of center then flanked by left and right midrange banks and and again by left and right mid bass banks with some subs in separate boxes; and all done with active crossovers.
