Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

Having corrected the spike set up and returned the tramp to the deck, I believe that the combination of a correctly set up Mana shelf and Trampolin 2 is best for my system and my room (as opposed to a...

Re: Pete's System

All done, thanks, and it is sounding even better. Very worthwhile.

The mana set up seems another non linear system: a tiny adjustment takes it from quite good to extremely good.

You have been listening to this on the playground.

Best 50p I ever spent. Found in a book exchange in a local country house.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

Think I prefer Bouncy too. But if given the option, I’d move 25% towards Flat. Just to see where it lands. Yes, not against flat but maybe slightly firmer support to control the bounce would be the m...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

Thanks everyone for your time and feedback. Unfortunately, after I recorded the first clip, I discovered that one of the mana spikes was no longer correctly set, in fact it was a long way off. I reset...

Re: Pete's System

It seems to me that the nut is attached underneath the spike. If that is the case, I would first screw the nut on from above. It makes a very small difference, but it is reinforced by the pointed spi...

... so does anyone have an idiots guide to removing a tramp 2? Is it just a case of removing the 10 Phillips screws on the base and lifting up the deck? Or is the tramp also attached with an earth in...

Re: Pete's System

Btw, I'm listening to supertramp right now and it sounds wonderful, even better than it did on the Quadraspire. If removing the tramp makes it sound even more musical, I'll be pretty surprised.

I've recorded a 'before' track with the Trampolin in place and have received the 3M bumpons. Now I just need to figure out how to remove the tramp. Obviously I don't have a jig, so does anyone have an...

Yes, I agree. Boazu is fabulous, so enjoyable. I'm concentrating on improving my LP12 for now. Every time I play a disc I relish how enjoyable it is. Källa has been taking a bit of a back seat in rece...

Interesting. Well that's something I can test on my setup. Do you have more details on the feet you've used?

Yes Hermann it sounds great and completely solves the footfall problem. I can bounce up and down on the floor immediately in front of it and the deck doesn't skip. I've measured the vibration on the g...

Re: Pete's System

I've moved the turntable onto a Mana wall shelf, mainly because of footfall issues.

It also means that Källa is now on the top shelf.
