Cleaning up the main room (moved three sets of huge speakers and tons of gear into the office room 2nd system area) in anticipation of my one of a kind Jon Anderson Shindo 604 builds which are almost done. It is very exciting times around here for sure.

Greg Metz STS modified Thorens TD124 MKII in custom plinth, with an Alfred Bokrand Custom Ortofon Tonearm mounted on a black sourced armboard, with a beloved brand new NOS Ortofon SPU Royal A cartridge, topped off with Nordost Quattro-fil phono cable.

Charlie, you constantly amaze me. Would love a tour if you weren’t on the other side of the country.

Kind words everyone thanks.
Things have been running now 48 hours non stop and they are sounding better and better and I think by next week they will really be impressive though they sound amazing now. I moved them back closer to the front wall corners also. Damn impressive bass.

Lenco PTP build... 65 pounds of analog goodness. She’s in the room now and will be fitted with a Fidelity Research arm this week. Three extra arm boards also for easy change out of tonearms.

Fidelity Research FR-24 MKII tonearm is setup with an Audio Technica cartridge for starters. I'll be trying several different cartridges in the coming time.
