For heavens sake, the point here is to be honest with yourself, rather than trying to determine what you think fits in or other people want you to be.......BAA!BAA!, Here sheepy sheep sheep!
I would not have put it quite like that Woodster but what you say is very true . You do have to be 100% honest and true to yourself when answering the questions or the results will not be correct .

Slowly, I think I mentioned I replaced the blown components on the Garrard, it was just for spark suppression on the autochanger mechanism but it appears to function, now I need to either figure out a circuit to allow the ceramic cartridge level to be pumped straight into a line-in (it's not far off apparently but the bass needs a boost but it's not RIAA equalisation, I don't know what I'm talking about...) or find a replacement non-ceramic cartridge (I need to get a new needle anyway) that can cope with the level of downforce that the 210 arm provides (between 3 and 10 grams apparently! ).
On the amp side of things I bought a wall bracket for my Sonos Connect:Amp (Flexson number from the Bristol Show) and have mounted that on the inside of one of the speaker enclosures. I need to figure out a clever place to mount the speaker switch as I still want it to power the outside speakers. At the moment my Roth Oli 2s are sitting in the bottom of the enclosures, not ideal but does roll off the treble hugely to give that authentic 60s AM sound (!). Longer term I've identified some drivers from Wilmslow Audio which should work but I'm struggling to justify the spending costs right now, things are a little uncertain at work.
I also got sidetracked into replacing the arm loom on my missus' BSR Ultra Dansette type thing, haven't finished that yet, will have to wait until things warm up a bit before I do, it's unbelievably fiddly and I don't want to risk melting the wires (done that once already)! It's so cold in the house at the moment that I might be tempted to hold the soldering iron at the wrong end just to warm up a little! Just hope I can remember how to put the damn thing back together, it's been about three weeks since I took it all apart...
Thanks. When the subject of Dansettes came up recently on another thread I found some excellent YouTube videos by someone who rebuilds and sells them.
His email is there somewhere. Maybe he could help you with some answers.

Ah, bingo, I was hoping you might mention that, I've been looking for that thread! Cheers.
No signature worth mentioning...
I don't think there's any need for that.
FWIW I don't find (never found) The_Lhc anything other than amusing. It takes allsorts (said Bertie bassett ) to make a forum....

That's a compliment right?
Surely you don't want me to draw pictures, do you?
(Where's my Rolf beard-a-like?)
Oh, I don't know, that might be entertaining!
It's better than being like JC without an education..............I suppose.

Clarkson probably got 'an education' at Repton.

I personally enjoy the abuse, both of myself and others, as it's quite often laugh out loud funny.
No-one else delivers it quite like The_Lhc.

I like the man. And he is a long term member and reader, which is a rare thing around here!
+1 from me Gel. One of the straightest talking guys on here, I like that in a person.
+1 for me on the The_Lhc love in. Straight talking, but it is usually bringing some common sense/actual knowledge. Funny fellow too.
Not sure that I've ever been on the receiving end, but if I was I'd want to check my facts and position because I don't think he does anything just to be contrarian.
Observe the signature in its natural habitat.
So as an extension of that rationale it's fine to insult other posters, as long as there's some logic to your commentary?
As I stated earlier, it's possible to contribute to debate in a constructive way that's respectful others. Forum members have varying levels of expertise. Regular posters are usually armed with good knowledge, but some post seeking advice from members more heavily invested in AV technology and culture. Ill informed commentary may require correction, but this can be done without resorting to insult.
All taste cultures make rabid disctinctions. AV culture is no exception. It's not difficult to map a hierarchy of forum members. Assertions of authority that belittle others are efforts to stake one's claim to position. Roughly translated, the insulting contributor is saying "I am the expert here, acknowledge my superiority." Insulting comments quickly become tedious and little effort is needed to unpack the psychology.
