It took some getting used to, Steve Ford turned me on to the 2M black. Hell who am I kidding Steve fueled my Vinyl frenzy, he was a huge help and influence.

Re: Gene C's System

What an incredible setup! It looks so good, I can't even imagine how great it must sound!

Did you update the description in your signature- are two of those TFM-45's really -42's?

Yeah, I find myself listening to more vinyl than digital when I'm home. Just meant the cart took some getting used to. Had a Denon DL-110 cart before I liked very much, which is why the Ortofon took a little getting used to.

The (2) 42's are in the closet right now as potential backup along with a 45, 55, 705X and the M-200t Greg modded the fuck out of with LED ladders.

Re: Gene C's System

Oops! I should've looked closely at the *latest* pic of your cabinet before I said anything... :-#

Wow, those are a lot of lighted meters in there! :shock:

Thanks for the nudie pics of the -7t. I knew they were M-1.5t derivatives, but I didn't realize they kept the same circuit boards as well! Makes sense, tho. I see you bought your caps from Mouser? :D

Yes they do. Don't forget the TFM-4.0 even though they are rare.
