    For all of you whom enjoy the 2nd* most import C in the threads title.






    That is a pretty good deal. Typically the best they do is 20% off sometimes 25 off selected items. No affiliation,  just a satisfied customer.


    Na Na  just for you guys here. And how much does it will cost me ? incl. oversea shipment to europe , import tax and duty ?  😂

  3. I arrived safely yesterday, the clinic is located in a noble hotel from the 18th century that was completely renovated in 2017, it is beautiful.


    The doctors and nursing team are very competent and friendly. My room is very large, nicely furnished and has a large balcony facing the sunny side. The food is okay so far, it's just the typical canteen kitchen food.


    The medical diagnosis took place yesterday and a rehab plan was drawn up for me which will now accompany me for the next 3 weeks. Whether this will lead to the desired success will become clear in the coming weeks.

    The weather is sunny but cold.

    First pressing sounded dull with Ortofon 2m blue. Full, lively, and dynamic with new Rega Ania MC.

    You can´t compare an entry level mm against the upper mc class ! Gentleman ...for your kind attention some facts about the Ania MC , this is how it looks like 😁




    The Rega Ania Pro is the latest addition to the Rega MC range and uses an advanced Nude Diamond Stylus with Vital Profile. This profile has been developed to extract as much detail as possible from the vinyl surface. The Ania Pro offers tight, deep, warm mids and precise peak frequencies for balanced and detailed music reproduction. Load settings for adjustable MC stages , Impedance -100 Ohm , Capacitance - 1000pF

    My problem is that I have no idea if increasing from 3m length to 8m length will result in audible quality loss.

    the answer is so simple ....Differences in length between the cables used in a system are practically irrelevant. At 3 m ≠ 8 m this is certainly the case, but at 2 m ≠ 50 m this statement may no longer be true. Use a 2,5 mm2 ( AWG 14 ) per phase and you´ll be fine !

  13. @Joefi1973  I can confirm most from your imppressions about the KG3.5 ( KM 4 ) as I owned them as well , i kept the origin klipsch polymer diafragms and renovated the whole speakers inside as well as outside and after approx 30 years of age it was time to refurbish the x-overs caps & resistors . I´m not saying that this must be done with yours as well , but was neccessary to the pair that I owned. Once I published a thread in the KC , this may inspires you ?

  15. Sorry for off topic .......


    I've been back @home for 2 hours.  Unbelievable things happened to me today


    So I'm on the train to Bad Eilsen in the Weserbergland and call there during the train ride to confirm the shuttle service from the train station to the rehab clinic. The clerk is completely surprised that I am on my way to Bad Eilsen, because he has no free room for me and tells me by phone that I was scheduled for February 13, 2024, as I have in writing, but that the appointment was canceled due to a missing confirmation of cost absorption by the pension insurance. He had already informed my health insurance company of this on February 5, 2024, but they did not inform me. They would have been obliged to do so!


    When I called my health insurance company during the train journey, after I had to clarify the problem 4 times with 4 different clerks, I only got to hear "Sorry, something went wrong".


    And ! ....Now neither the rehabilitation clinic, the pension insurance nor the health insurance company feels responsible for reimbursing me for the travel costs for the outward and return journey. Normally the pension insurance reimburses the costs for the train journey or similar. There was also an application in the correspondence, but this must be submitted to the DB at least 10 days before the start of the journey, but the letter from the rehabilitation clinic only reached me on 07.02.24, i.e. 6 days before the start of the journey, and I was forced to buy the tickets myself. During the rehab I could have applied to the pension insurance for reimbursement of costs, but as this rehab is not taking place now, logically I will not be reimbursed for the travel costs for a rehab that is not taking place!


    I just say ... " German bureaucracy "  Now I have to wait for another invitation from the rehabilitation clinic .......

    A quick update on my broken cartridge the Audio Technica ATML170

    @MicroMara would be interested in this development 


    I have found a local (well the same state) technician to replace the broken canterlever with a new boron one and new diamond tip to original or better specs 


    So hopefully it will be ready in a few weeks 

    sure it will have better specs than the origin and it´s always worth to invest some dollar in this vintage card
