Thank you.  I bought mine from The Needledoctor.  They set everything up for me.  All I had to do was install the platter, set the tracking force, and then match the anti-skate adjustment.

How is the HE-500 with the Bellari? On paper it should provide enough juice but how's synergy between the two?

 

Doesn't seem like that amp gets as much love around here on Head-fi....compared to the Schiit stuff.

Doesn't glow as much as the sophia princess or the stock rectifier. But, yes it looks great at night.gs1000.gif

Some people have expressed interest in the analog piece of my rig, so I snapped a few more pics.

 

It's very black.

 

You have to look closely to read the model.

 

The RB303 tonearm.

 

The delicious Ortofon 2M Black cartridge.

 

 

Comes with a wool mat.

 

 

 

Glass platter, without mat.

I love your setup!! Everything looks wonderfully and I'm lusting over the Rega. I keep telling myself to get back into vinyl, but when it comes down to it I can't decide on vinyl or sacd. 

Bit like the tube vs solid state discussion a few posts back..... Warm and organic or clinical and dynamic.... (yes yes vinyl can be that too blah :D )

OPR8R is spending too much time on Head-Fi today tongue_smile.gif

 

That's 'Miles Davis - Kind of Blue'.  It epitomizes why vinyl.

I've never heard a nice vinyl rig in person before, but if the surface noise is as bad as it sounds on a lot of the pro vinyl rips I've got, I would be hard pressed to be able to enjoy a vinyl rig of any quality.

That's what you get for using cheapo TT + cartridge and drop-in 50 bucks soundcard rolleyes.gif. I guess it has something to do with the LP used too. Thankfully the "vinyl rip" trend tends to calm down a bit now and we don't have to swim through a load of noisy rip to find a decent one.

 

There's some rare rip by people with multi thousands rig, and sound noticably better than the red book cd (mostly coz the cd version was brickwalled/crapstatically mastered) - and noise-free too. Vinyl rips got potential, I myself would pay more to get them rather than brickwalled but high res recording - but DSD is buzzword on today market.

My table picks up more surface noise on some LP's than on others.  On my best LP's (Kind of Blue is a good example), there's little-to-no surface noise.  A dirty record can sound pretty bad though.  The upside is that good, clean LP's can sound better than CD's.
