Bobui,

pretty basic inside, the Alphason and the VOYD was much more elaborate

What do you think ? I want to use this with my Alphason, I also have another PSU for the Alphason, which I think was made as a kit during the days of Hi Fi World Magazine offerings.

I would need to light up 168 (oh, lucky number) tubes!

OK, let’s see, if I go with your suggestion, then I would also need 2 sets of Callisto to get the best out of it! That’s stacking 12 units, a tower of 5.5’ tall, over 600 lbs, and utilize 112 tubes!  
 
This tower of inferno would certainly be quite impressive; just my kind of preamp! ;-)  
 
Then, when even I turn on the system, I would need to light up 168 (oh, lucky number) tubes! Just thinking of that makes me hot!

Wahhhhhhhhhh! My dream come true? SME 20/2  
 
You can say the sound is not to your liking but no one in this world can come close in saying SME dont know how to make analogy lor!  
 
I like SME ar! Anything I can make myself useful to make your (daiwok) SME run smooth music, give me a shout anytime.

My first taste of zero tracking error! Wooooow, like it already even if it is not properly set up yet. Very clean and detailed sound!

You will be surprised how much fun and dialing in these kind of arms can do. Its not just set the alignment VTA and VTF and go ! the air pressure adjustments and air surge tanks change everything dramatically ! also with the Terminator, you can adjust the position on the arm to a point where the length of the and can change the whole characteristics of the sound.

After more than a decade love affair with my 9 and 12 inches, I finally broke my virginity over the weekend on my first ever straight linear tracking arm, "The Terminator".  
 
My first taste of zero tracking error! Wooooow, like it already even if it is not properly set up yet. Very clean and detailed sound!  
 
Here is a temporary and messy look.

Morning Gas,  
 
I like it very much; way quieter than the previous version. Sound character wise, the Aesthetix is somewhere between the ARC and CJ, just what I like!  
 
Actually, we have also auditioned the IO phono in Wadia’s place last week, and it was also very impressive. Now, a few of us is on the search for the IO! :-)

Someone needs to start a business similar to Netflix. Hi-fi source in the cloud, subscription base model. All those impossible to get decca, living stereo, etc become wildly available to all public at a subscription price or pay per play, whatever.  
All streaming, all tubes, high quality endorsed by TAS, Stereophile, HiFi sound & 師父, etc. now then perhaps we can begin to see a shift of paradigm .... Hi-end streaming DAC. Technology already available to supports it, guess not enough business .... Wait, that is just a radio, isn't it ?!

There are more tonearms, turntables and cartridges and more reissue LP's than I can ever imagine !!!  
 
For those who say the end is near - well I guess buy as many tubes / valves as you can as well !!!!

Remember when we were young, foolish and care free! Now we are glad that we have moved on! Have a den and something we treasure to be there at home with us when we wanted to be!  
 
You know what! My thinking is, there is no way LP will last forever but if you still enjoy it. Why not! And please dont stop lor! For myself, I never try not to forget to keep move on!

Luke: I can't do it, R2. I can't go on like this. These LPs are far too large for my handle. My den is too tiny for them!  
Obi-Wan: Luke, your father was seduced by the little screen play dark force. He ceased to be LP skysprinter and became Digital Vader. The good man who was your father was destroyed. What I told you was true......from a certain point of view.  
Luke: A certain point fo view?  
Obi-Wan: Good sound is always a certain point of view. Your father is now more digital than human. His speed is well beyond 44khz and you are still on 33rpm!  
Luke: There is still good in him. I can feel it.  
Obi-Wan: You must not escape. You must face Digital Vader again, Its your destiny.  
Luke: Can i take Princess Leia with me. She is hot!  
Obi-Wan: You pervert. She is your bloody sister. Stop scanning her nipples  
Luke: Suck!  
Obi-Wan: Dont panic! I will bring you SP10MkIII, EMT 927, Linn LP12, Wilson Benesch Act Two, Lenco GL70, Rockport, CommonWealth, Oracle, Alphason and Han Solo ass to assist you.  
Luke: OK! But. Can I just have one last request please?  
Obi-Wan: What?  
Luke: How about a Pink Triangle?
