Chris,simply closing any windows in the vicinity of the table will be an instant upgrade and improvement.Even the lightest Spring breeze makes them go tati.

Got some details here: www.turntableguy.co.za and if you want a running commentary  :point: www.facebook.com/turntableguy

I would have took. I mainly judge prices on the list price of the car that drops off  :point:

Seriously though. It would really depend on what the table needs... Linn parts are not cheap but at least they are readily available  :2thumbs:

For clients that are willing to PAY I even rub down Linn cables with Tiger balm and treat the complete unit holistically with Impepho (to ward off bad Hamish Robertson spirits)...

I had a guy arrive on an old scooter that wouldn't start when he left - I had to push him down the road, with the turntable on his knees.
(At least it was only a Kenwood...).

It's an Audiophile thing. In real life they call it insecurity.

I send insecure audiophiles to BK. He makes them ginger tea and then brings out his hot wife to listen in. After some listening with earnest back-patting and some positive affirmation they leave as real men.

 :ROFLMAO: I am just getting a carbon-fibre butt-plug made up to go with the table  :BWAHAHAH:  :sulky:  :Ooooooh:  :facepalm:
