what a difference
a decent stand makes
Since buying, I've slightly resented by Rega RP1
I love my vinyl but much to my frustration the little hrt music streamer had much more oompf with the yamaha s-500 amp and wharfedale speakers
I've refused to accept the aberration and blamed the phono stage on the amp for not knowing better (after all, I keep reading how great the RP1 is and I don't want to believe digital is just THAT much better)
On Wednesday, I finally got rid of the Ikea coffee table (I know, I know) that the RP1 had been resting on and now have a decent hi-fi stand with the RP1 separated from everything else
Oompf I now have in bucketloads. The music projects much more. My battered copy of Love's 'Forever Changes' finally sounds like the 'Forever Changes' that I know and love. That new Godspeed... record rocks the hell out of this tiny apartment.
Previously, I was having to crank up the volume now I'm having to dive for the remote to stop the neighbours complaining.
Who'd have thunked it? I'll be changing the cables next
