I am sure it sounds wonderful, and it certainly looks great....but the line has to be drawn somewhere.
But I've spend over 2500 on the turntable alone

Dave if you could PM me with some details of the mods etc. I will certainly consider it.

Anyway thanks for the comments..I still say for the money my system is "high end".
I say that without even hearing an LP12, or anything else like VPI and all that, guess I'll know one day what hi end is

...and the more I think about it, the more I think "I don't know what I'm talking about, trying to convince this thread my system is hi end."
If I heard a VPI through my preamp and cans I'd probably be spewing and need to buy it.
Some deck with a cnc'ed plinth and ebay parts might be a good start, but seriously it's just a cobble together of expensive parts, that need not have the right synergy with each other just by chance, and it's only as good as it's bearing. I reckon the RB300 is a killer arm though, can definitely hear how much better it is than say the Mission 774LC arm I also own
This is gonna happen, I'm gonna get that itch, I just know it.
Would clearaudio be a step up?
I don't know what sort of bearing they have.
Bloody hell, I'm still only using the Airpax motor, can't be high end yet.
mid - mid/high, maybe.

As of tomorrow, I'm digging DEEP into the well and buying a new Transrotor 40/60/M. I'm going with the 3 motor version, which lists at $23,000 (obviously I'm not paying list, but it's still damned expensive). It's 88 pounds of aircraft grade aluminum (whatever that means) so if you don't like it, I can probably use it to kill you. They have to custom mount my Dynavector arm, so no telling how soon I'll get it.

wow! that TT looks amazing. quite an investment, but why not . . . feels good to make a bold decision once in a while.

Sweet turntable! I must say, like vcoheda, every once in a while you just should do it. I think Nike had something behind that mentally for a while

I'm very pleased with my present rig, it's 95% of an Orbe, but if I ever get the cash, perhaps just after my kids go through undergrad, I'll drop the coin and get myself an SME 30 or one of those incredible Teres contraptions. Though that Transrotor should does give me pause!
post #68 of 256
Yeah, those Teres rigs have made me drool in public a couple times

No offense, but that is NOT an Analog Source Component
