  3. @JohnJ seems to be a a kind new neighbor , got problems with mine in the new apartment , they complain the bass vibrations from my RF7 Evo´s in their apartments 🤣 , so I´m limited w/the the volume , 65 dBA is possible not more , that´s the red line for them. Think it´s time to look for another new place to live....Can´t accept that here . Need a bigger listening room and an apartment on the groundfloor with less neighbors in the house . The other problem is ...these neighbors are too old for me , above 70 years and older ....this house is a living graveyard 😂, I´m too young to die here 😅

  4. 14 hours left and than the year is gone here . I´m glad , done the right decisions even if they were difficult. My life is better now even if i can't look through rose-colored glasses, it's not always rosy either.


    There are many mental "up & down" moods of the day that affect me. The correspondence between the lawyers is exhausting and nerve-wracking. It's upsetting that my ex not only washes dirty laundry but also lies to get more money. The worst realization, however, is that I have to admit that after 22 years this woman has become a complete stranger to me, as if I had never known her. It's good that my children don't hear any of this, I don't talk to them about all these things but keep them out of it. Well, you never stop learning in life.


    I wish you all the very best for 2024

  5. I'm having a hangover today, had a visit from a friend yesterday, he came in the afternoon, we listened to music and played backgammon, early in the evening I start cooking.  We had roast goose breast in an onion, orange honey sauce, brocolli with Sause Bernaise and homemade bread dumplings, we drank Spanish red wine with it. We both drank 4 bottles of red wine til 1 o´clock at night. We were pretty drunk, laughed a lot that night, this morning he went home again after breakfast and I have to recover now .

    The Cartridge King!😁

    No Sir I´m not the King of Carts , I´m just a littel old guy cart maniac. I´m member of the german analogue audio association. Close to 17.000 Members, it´s about vintage to present analogue audiotechnology for TT´s, Cartridges, R2R, Tuner, Tapedeck, etc. pp. There´re members who own a cartridge collection which has value of approx. 150 K€ , but even these guys a quiet smart and aren´t arrogant or something similar. Last autum they made an event in a hotel andintroduced their private gear to let the members listen to , the top class set up was worth  one million € . 

    So as I toldyou .....😉

    Merry Christmas for all of You too!


    @Full Range @Dave1291 @MicroMara @JohnJ @GWSmith @Tim Sr. @MeloManiac @billybob


    As You may know, we had a nasty storm here for the past three days, yesterday a little snow. Snow didn´t last long and is now replaced by perpetual rain. Doesn´t look like white Christmas (again)... Too warm...

    But, it´s the right weather for spinning and having good food!   Stay healthy, all of You! 

    You´ve forgotten @KROCK & @dirtmudd   🫢

    ACH JA ...I couldn't say NO again , since today I have my NoS Entré 1 MC in operation.


    Originally manufactured by Soltear Acoustics Inc. Japan. The Lentek Entré 1 MC was designed by Mr. Matsudaira, who began his career as a designer at Tokyo Sound Co. in 1959. For ten years he worked for NHK (Japanese National Broadcast) where he designed tonearms and cartridges. In 1967 he moved to SUPEX as chief designer. From 1970 to the late 1990s, he worked as a senior designer for many famous brands, including Entré, Miyabi, Kouetsu, Audio Craft and Air Tight. In 2003, he founded his own company My Sonic Lab in Japan.




    Technical specifications:

    • Frequency Response: 10 Hz – 50.000 Hz
    • Output Voltage: 0,2 mV (3.54cm/s, 1000 Hz, 45 degree)
    • Channel Balance: within 1 db (1000 Hz)
    • Channel Separation: better than 28 db (1000 Hz)
    • Compliance: 10 x 10-6cm/dyne
    • Impedance: 3.0 ohms
    • Recommended Load Resistance: 100 ohms
    • Tracking Force: 1.8 grams + 0.3 grams

    And good that it is. Days after Christmas can be awful for just going to the grocery store on the corner. I've got the opposite going on lined up with the deal for a truck. I'm driving the 400 mile round trip to get my stuff out of the storage bin next Tuesday loading it driving back and unloading it. I got the truck for 2 days. In case it takes me longer than expected, they'll refund me if I get it back early. That's right nice of 'em!

    I do remember something simmilar in the 1990 tess, I moved into a new flat and spent all days before christmas till after new year with renovation works in the new apartment. But it doesn´t scared me at all , I had fun !
