Just saw the movie on blu ray for the first time. It holds up well and looks beautiful. From time to time they play the film in theaters.

Yeah, this is one movie that I hope never gets a remake. It's a classic and should stay that way :)

Can I ask which tonearm is this? Looks like a Rega mod I was writing about half or so year ago and the name momentarily escapes me.

What a nice room and rig! I love the mess!

Are those the new Zu Cubes? I have never seen them in situ...they look very useful!

Cheers

I've got that soundtrack in so many shapes and forms (including that heavy red slab you have), it's ridiculous. I agree that much of Vangelis's work is difficult to get through, and this is by far the best of his soundtracks. But don't discount his early work like Spiral, which leans heavily into a Berlin-school sort of sound. Good stuff!

What speaker is that? Whats that awesome looking device under the turntable? Pics and description of your whole set up? :wink_face:

That's an Audiomods arm. Beautiful and very good value.

I like the setup too.

Based on a Rega RB1000, I believe.

No, the name of the company did escape my memory, arm type not: RB 250 ( or to be precise - the one without spring VTF adjustment that in Rega creates trouble after trouble after trouble...). It ( Audiomods) has MUCH better bearings than the stock RB1000.

 

http://www.audiomods.co.uk/completearms.html

 

The only way to improve upon this arm without basically starting from scratch (and increasing the cost beyond reason...) would be a counterweight along these lines:

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XTC-122gm-FITS-REGA-RB300-RB250-NAD-F-XR-GOLDRING-tonearm-UPGRADE-COUNTERWEIGHT-/111262034327?pt=Turntable_Parts_Accessorie

 

This style of counterweight is applicable to many other designs, most notable is the one for the otherwise excellent Hadcock unipivot tonearms, which are above royal level PITA to adjust for the azimuth in the first place - AND even more PITA to keep it that way long term. Design from this seller for Hadcock unipivots is both elegant and repeatable - and most important of all, should keep the adjustment over time well. With the usual improvement in sound this type of CW brings : better bass, soundstage, dynamic range, smoother treble - in short, an across the board improvement.

 

(No affiliation with the seller, I (used to) use DIY CWs of this type for decades).

Not familiar with Palmer - what is it ?

 

No MuddyWaters over here - the ones I do like are actually OEM by Audio Technica ( CA's MM line ).

My wife does not like the mess. The mess is sadly, now gone.

 

The Cubes, while unconventional, are amazing. I went with a Clarity Cap upgrade and I think the cabs are stacked birch. They disappear. I'm going to play around more with placement and some extreme-toe-in soon.

 

current setup, so as not to derail too much here but thanks! It's been a lot of work with a patient family!
