Years later I saw/heard the Sinhonia at a friends and wow, to me, that's the nicest looking amp he's ever made. I'm just sayin'...

:beerchug: 

 

:wink: So, then you already know, of all the models he could choose from the Sinhonia's were Ken Shindo's choice as the display model in his lounge since 1985. A long running tenure...

I'm just sayin'.... I see a reproduction....

I have real original paintings on my wall. No glass in front of them either. But no Magrittes or Dalis. Quite out of my reach.

BTW the guy is moving cross country and selling everything. He saved the stereo for last so he could listen till the end. Give him a break!
So, I guess my observation was right. Why should I give him a break for simply seeing/stating that? I already gave him 2 compliments for a half empty house... biggrin.gif
I do feel sorry for him though. Having to sell his precious items because he is moving. triportsad.gif
You did kinda say there's "no life" in a system without a screen
No, I did not. You shouldn't try to read what I'm not saying or meaning. I said: full stop, seperate sentence. "No life". Meaning just that, unrelated to the previous sentence. I did not say: "no tv, no life".
Noone's putting words in your mouth.
So, actually you are. I do not mean to offend anyone but you keep saying I am. No harm done (that is another way of saying you are forgiven), lets move on. Please.

Since I see 300B tubes mentioned. Anyone any idea what new 300B's to get next? Mine are almost showing signs of wear (4600 hours says the counter). I was thinking PSVane, the TII or the new UK Design version? Bit off-topic but maybe someone has a good suggestion.

It is an original print, not a reproduction of a painting.

Calling it a reproduction is a gotspe, if you know what I mean...

(please stop while you are behind)

Call me ignorant? That's your opinion free to express. I know I'm not (most of the time wink.gif ).

 

No one has called you ignorant, over sensitive maybe, but not ignorant.

 

You have no idea what the owner does but you continue to insist that you know.  Why?

 

I admire your grasp of the English language.  It's much better than many of the native speaking yayhoos that post here on Head-Fi.

 

Here's a suggestion.  I read a lot about the ready and legal availability of gangia in The Netherlands. (I'm jelly)  Why not avail yourself of same, chill out and ...... enjoy the music.

 

:D

This post is unrelated to analog turntable cause, wanted to post it a week ago, but the facts of life are sometimes so cruel and hard I only now am somehow putting myself together.

That Pocan body is so industrial - chic! 

:beerchug:

Are you still cartridge shopping? 

When I was Shindo window shopping I discovered the Aurieges prefers a good MM to the HOMC - my Benz is only 2.0mV (Eroica is stronger) and there was not enough gain and a distracting difference between line and phono levels. Matt at Pitch Perfect in SF has lots of experience matching cartridges to the Aurieges and maybe worth a phone call for some ideas - hang up when he tells you NEED the dedicated phono pre-amp and a whole load of cartridges to play with...

:biggrin: Matt is patient. Wanted to start me off with the Monbrison, so my climb would be two steps fewer. When I can displace enough Jasmine Dragon Pearls inside their tins with cash, then up the ladder we go. This could take a while... currently seeking work. A new cart would come quicker but that's on hold. Though, I see no reason:evil: to stop shopping... still undecided on which one at this writing.

 

What would be your affordable recommendation for cart?
