Thrift store finds. The tape deck is for 3db eyes as I don’t have any tapes anymore I didn’t get it. It was $10 and in very good condition. Sigh. APC is a brick, but bargain of the day. I went there to get one specifically but dang didn’t expect this great price.

My neighbor Bob goes to thrift stores a couple times a week and sometimes finds some good stuff. I finally got TOOL's Opiate from neighbor Bob just not long ago. Hell build up a pile and I'll borrow them for a week or 2 and rip 'em all. I have a crap-ton of music on my hard drive now.

This is the latest batch he dropped off for me last week.

I love neighbor Bob!

I've been on another music buying spree as well. Vulfpeck did a sold-out show at MSG so I grabbed that and another one to have their complete catalog. Also Snarky Puppy's royal Albert hall show. Loving all the new jazz/funk that is out there. Cory Wong is another amazing artist.

Power? Check
Subsonic? Check
MM / MC? Check
Enough inputs? Check
(and even) The looks? Check (the door covering the knobs is a thick, heavy piece of aluminium)
Very happy to say this ol' cat purrs on my commode now! 2 x 110 into 8 and very capable into 6 and 4.

And then this:

To end the turntable story for a longer period of time. After having the TT completely cleaned and seeing all problems are gone with solid, flat records, I got an amp with a subsonic, got this cart on a discount, took some time to adjust all the details - overhang spot on, anti skating steady and stays where it lands on a groovless record, VTF schoolbook ideal (after setting everything manual, I checked on a scale to make sure and also saw that my weight markings are accurate)
A bit of adjusting:

I would be almost too confident to say that this set up performs at this moment to the best of its abilities. Meaning that any meaningful improvement would have to come from changing a piece of gear or treating the room differently and NOT by changing the settings on the gear.

^^Looking good K! What speakers are you using? Too bad I haven’t seen any interesting vinyls at my local thrift stores lately.

Thank you!! I have LS50 by advice from people here on AH and I'm madly in love with them (also have old B&W 802 and will hook them up for fun over the weekend).

Since you've mentioned trift stores, I have a story. It was so long ago that I asked for one album (it's a Croatian band, don't think you'd know) that I forgot I ever asked. Almost 2 years later an email arrives saying they finally got it and asked if I want it. I was knocked over by this dedication. And all that fo 4$!!!!!

My next move if I don't lose my job to corona, is the SVS 2000 the new one. I was waiting for such a long time to see a "cheaper" model that still sports the DSP app. And I'm selling the AVR and DVD/CD combo I used until now.

Nice score, enjoy !
Thanks. Maybe it's because I gave it much more time, but this cart seems better to me than the AT-VMN95. When I'm playing EDM the deeps are more abundant, but when it's Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue, highs from brass don't make me cringe.

In all fairness, it IS a huge difference in compliance; AT roughly 14 and OM 20. (not to drag this topic beyond its natural life :) I do think 17CU in a light body around 4g would be a perfect match for my tone arm and calculations confirm it). I tried this cart without the weight, but it's too light, my weight can't even go that low.

"this ol' cat purrs on my commode now!" to translate for us 'Mericans, @killdozzer was neither referring to a cat nor a toilet but a piece of gear performing admirably on what I take is an entertainment stand (though the older definition was a chest of drawers).

20+ years ago I built an entertainment unit out of reclaimed 2x10s and threaded rod (a poor man's Salamander stand). the threaded rod has served as its "legs" for all that time, but it is pretty heavy and hard to move - as in moving day; it scoots along the floor just fine with felt pads under the legs. Anyway, out of boredom more than anything else, I bought some large rubber casters. To cut the excess threaded rod, I got a dremel tool (off brand) but quickly found out a dremel is no match for 1/2" steel rod, so out came the hack saw... Anyway, I really like the casters and am stoked I was able to find them in orange!

That's admirable, but I in fact meant a chest of drawers. :D:D

This is the first time I heard commode meant toilet! Live and learn.
:
The English appropriated the term for an enclosed chamber pot:

In America, it it is a colloquial term for a flush toilet (sorry - my minor in college was History and Design of Furnishings...). :D

In Croatian komoda (the way we write it and pronounce it) always meant this piece of furniture like in the pic I attached above.
