Bowers & Wilkins 607, but there's barely any real reviews (with measurements) of these / in a home cinema context... They sound fine to my more or less untrained ears though.

Dali Zensor 3 as a center speaker, but am thinking about finding 2 more Dali Zensor 3s (second hand probably since they're out of production) and maybe using these as mains and the Bowers & Wilkins 607s as surround channels? Not sure yet.
Unfortunately it's positioned horizontally under my screen, and not able to angle it towards ear level yet because my screen is standing right on top of it... Maybe I should buy two angled stands, one under the speaker to angle it upwards, and then another one for on top of the speaker to 'undo' the angle and put my screen on that.
What? No pictures or it didn't happen. :)

I bought it from Amazon, took the picture from the only model they had on the Nicron site....didn't notice the difference in machining, mine's fluted. Now that you mention it I think I saw some other comments along the lines that they had changed over time....


ps @Shanman looked at my light and it has an "N7" on the endcap.

I got this NOS piece of gold. Produced 40 years ago, the original so the same weight as needed and never been used! A lot of replicas mess with the weight so it's hard to adjust the resonant freq. Originals go fo 35 - 60€, i got this for 20€.

Nice what cart are you gonna mount that on?
Thanks!

It's still the Audiotechnica AT-VM95E. I'm planing to change it, though. The thing is, my TT had some undesirable behavior. I took it to the shop to be completely taken apart and checked (it needed the lube job anyway, all the buttons were hardly moving, it made a loud clunk when bringing the tone arm to the platter when it needed to start rotating the platter etc).

The guy said all the grease dehydrated to the level when it started to look like a chewing gum on a hot road.

Since we were taking it apart anyway, we went in depth and check every little detail, but were unable to detect the problem.

That's why I concluded that maybe it's not a fault, but simply a bad combination of cart/stylus/headshell.

What I'm doing now is trying to make the set up as close to the original as possible. Original headshell was considerably lighter than most in the market today. The original stylus was of low compliance that fitted a somewhat heavy tone arm.

The original cart/stylus is not being made anymore. But I found specs to be almost the same in Nagaoka MP100, so I'm getting that.

That's why I made the case about getting the original part. It weighs 7,5g and the one I had weighed 10g. and the lightest I can buy in my town is 9g.
