    Yes, it does. And it never occurred to me to try that out, maybe I’ll give it a shot.

    Parasond makes an external phono that many people highly regard. I've not heard it but based on their reputation I'd bet your internal is as good or better than the schiit.

    Very nice system. I used to have a Rega P6, and I currently have a Parasound HINT and REL sub as well...I really like both. Have you ever tried placing your sub in the corner at an angle? I believe this is what they advise to get the most linear low frequency output.

    Thanks! I just got the sub and hooked it up on Sunday, currently still futzing with levels & positioning.

    I've had this setup for a while now, does me well. Smallest bedroom in the house, my work from home office, 3 metres x 2 metres so no need for massive speakers. The only recent add was a secondhand Yamaha cassette desk for £35 from ebay. I want to upgrade my turntable as it doesn't have a 45rpm selector, manual belt change which i refuse to do in case of damaging the setup. The cd shelves have seen better days. Some of the cd's supporting the weight of the shelves above, But overall very happy with what i have.

    Always room for improvement though.

    Very cool office rig. I have a system with the speakers on the same surface as a turntable and I recently put some isolation blocks under the speaker and it reduced the vibration to the table.

    Wow! You might need another shelf in the near future.

    I can't say i've really had any issues with vibration but its one i will look into. In an ideal world id have bigger speakers down the side of the Deconomix storage but any spare space is taken by box sets.

    If there isn’t a problem you don’t need a solution. In my case it helped when I was playing records at a louder volume.

    I have to do the cull of cds quite often. I have ended up boxing and putting in the loft my old cds that get upgraded/remastered rather than trading them for peanuts, Would rather give to my kids or to friends, and learning what we know from those who traded their vinyl in the 90's (I kept mine) im loathe to trade in too much.

    Very cool! Love the Bob Welch/Danny Kirwan era Fleetwood Mac poster...not something you see often.

    Thanks! Its a promo poster for Future Games, has the album cover in the bottom right hand corner. Bought it off a nice gentleman on this site about half a dozen years back. Very proud to have a poster on my wall that's a year older than me, also good to have it away out of any sunlight damage.

    Forgot to mention I love that album. Photo taken outside the gate to their home, Benifold in Hampshire, England back in '71.

    Lol, SandandGlass. My only complaint was how the car used to have a problem, I noticed a slight gravitational pull every time I approached a gas station! Ahhh the things we do for the ladies! Thanks very much for your help getting me started!

    I love staring at CD walls and trying to find band “veins.”

    I've lurked around the forum for some time and have along the way picked up a lot of valuable knowledge from its members. Until now I've been hesitant to make an account or post, as I felt intimidated by the multitude of gorgeous $50K-and-up systems around here, but heck- I figure I'll pop in and say hello anyway.

    I'm an electronics tech, musician, and of course a music lover, and was very fortunate to inherit my grandfather's old system, which I've restored and upgraded myself over the past several years. The details are in my profile, but here's some pics (forgive the yesteryear's android quality images)...

    Music on this system (at least the well-engineered stuff) is sensational, and I end up getting sucked in for long listening sessions... but I confess with the A7's near-field the sweet spot is very narrow!

    Still on my to do list: furniture (we just moved in recently), room treatment, and building a cabinet for the Scott.

    Cheers!

    Welcome Dave,

    Your grandfather had excellent taste. Glad to see that you also have excellent taste in speakers. The MC-30 is a great match for the A7's.

    Here are one of my pairs.

    Those look brilliant! Do I see 2404's filling in the top?

    Love it. Is this the RX3 or 5? I consider replacing my RS5 with RX5, but not sure if it is worth the money. Have never listened to the RX series.
