Re: Karousel

enjoy and dont wait too long until you install it - we are very curious what you think Thx Defender, if all goes well, that'll be tomorrow. Since I install the kit myself, I had to clarify the warranty, but my dealer reassured me today, everything is ok. Please ... if possible, make Clips now ... B...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

hi Vlado thank you very much for your opinion - this is really a hard one - I see what you mean and agree to some extend. One thing is for sure - its a great achievement as DIY. Actually this comparison mirrors the discussion I have with the friend - he is missing clarity, details and transparency ...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Cheers for the feedback folks and glad you like it Vlado. The 160 is getting better all the time and my preference. The timing of the music just snaps into focus better, despite the absence of a snaps! The seller said it had never been used - not sure how true that is but it's certainly all origina...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Received a CB 160 today. Not directly compared to the bold down 160 in the house yet. The 250 has been on for weeks. The 160 has had about 3 hours warm up. 32.5/Snaps/250: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1ja4fw0gmyc569x/IMG_0510%5B1%5D.MOV?dl=0 32.5/CB 160: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7d0ljrfpcte5nir/IMG_0...

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

Actually, Chris Harban changed his plinth dimensions years ago having realized that there could be a fitment problem. He even sold me a plinth or two at a discount as they weren’t tall enough to comfortably fit a Radikal. It's really impressive that Chris Harban was able to recognize the potential ...
