    He's not wrong. If OMA built these they would be at least $250k. But they woild be made out of a "had hewn heritage white oak which was harvested from a derelict lumber mill that shut down in the early 1900's". "This white oak provides a density no longer seen in oak growm today, which lends itself to superior acoustic qualities, which is why we can put the OMA name on them"

  2. Price dropped to $700. Could be open to interesting trades or trades plus cash. I need a Raspberry Pi 4, looking for PI2AES or something to run I2S into my Audio-GD DAC.

  3. Systemdek iix with Linn Basik Arm, Grado Zu+ cartridge and Grado Gold3 stylus.

    Here is a link to the specs on the Systemdek: https://www.vinylengine.com/library/systemdek/iix.shtml

    Link to the stylus: https://4ourears.com/products/grado-prestige-gold3-replacement-stylus

    Only 50hrs on the stylus. Plays both 33 and 45RPM.

    It has a brand new belt, replaced the resistor that commonly fails on these with new uprated resistor (https://www.vinylengine.com/turntable_forum/viewtopic.php?t=108445), added sound dampening mat to the inside chassis, lubricated and greased. I have a cork mat that will come with it as well as the felt mat that was stock.

    This is a great sounding TT!

    $700 obo.

    Buyer to pay shipping and PP fees. prefer F&F or zelle.

  4. I took the ST-70 and put it in my office to run a set of Lynn Olsen Transmission line speakers I got. The ST-70 is MUCH quieter on the Lynn Olsen ( 92db 1wx1m) than on the La Scalas. I'm streaming to a Raspberry pi which runs into a Audio GD Master 7 DAC. Also have a JBL sub in here too. 

     

    Still need some organization,  but we'll get there.

     

    The Lynn Olsen speakers also sound REALLY good and have peaked my interest in that type of speaker design.

  5. Added a tube DAC and a tube USB to SPDIF converter a couple months ago.

     

    This DAC is amazing! After having listened with it for a couple months now, I wonder how much better you could actually get. We'll see if I'm still saying that in a year.

     

    My preference has also been to use the Oliver Sayes Korneff SET 45 that I just changed to a type 80 rectifier as the power amp.

  6. Hi, 

     

    I have a buddy in the Bay area who has a Sonance Sub amp and wants to get it looked at for repair. He is not a DIY type and just wants someone to look at it and either fix it or tell him to get a new one. Sounds like its in some protection mode and when he opens it up he can see some arcing, but he doesn't solder nor does he want to take on fixing it himself. 

     

    If there are any suggestions on good techs in that  area I'd appreciate any recommendations 

     

    Thanks! 

  7. I have 2 Eames knockoffs and both are just too short for me at 5'10". They just don't come up high enough on my back to be comfortable to listen in. While the Plycraft knock off is better/taller, it's still not as great as the more retro chrome Ekhorns stressless chairs I have. The vintage chrome stressless is a bit more minimalist looking, but ultimately a larger chair and will recline to almost flat, with the ability to lock it into a position in recline. 

     

    The original Eames Chairs have very little recline in them and are essentially fixed, while a lot of the vintage knock offs had more recline in them, but they were on a tensioned spring system, that is not able to be locked into a position. 

     

    Here's a link of the Ekhorns Stressless Chrome:

    I got my locally for ~$300 per chair and while they need to be refoamed and recovered, that shouldn't cost more than ~$1000 for both chairs. The vintage Eames knockoffs aren't that hard to recover either, because of how they come apart in panels. 

     

    If you end up likening the Stressless, lemme know and I can check with the guy I bought mine from to see if he has any others. He flip's vintage furniture and gives me really good deals, but we would have to ship it, which couldn't be too bad with Uship and I would be happy to help in any way I can.
