Well, last year my son (now 2 and a half) did get hold of the audio technica oc9 needle... 700€ down the drain. That's the reason I got the Ginko dustcover |( .

I sold my Linn TT after the birth of my first child, as I was certain this would happen.

RE: Jumping Jack's stereo

Wow, it's been more than a year since I posted here. So an update is due!

 

Speakers are still the PMC Fact.8, and the analog part of my set hasn't changed either.

The SuperUniti is gone and has been replaced by a SuperNait 2, NDX streamer and a Teddy Pardo XPS power supply.

The cabling consist of Ocos-speakercables, Cardas Cross DIN-DIN between SN and NDX, a Naim Powerline for the SN and 2 pairs of Chord Cobra VEE 3 in the analog front-end.

 

It sounds truly awesome: very revealing but also very entertaining.

RE: Jumping Jack's stereo

well Jack, congrats on such a nice set up!

I'm from Belgium myself (you maybe recognise the 'dutch'-english ;o) and I also own a superuniti and a pair of B&W CM10's, but I'm not totally happy with the sound...

Now I was wondering, why did you upgrade to the SN2 + HDX? Is there a big difference? It is an upgrade I'm also considering...

And how are you going to protect those nice PMC tweeters from the pointy fingers of the 2,5y old?  :poke:

Thank you!

What's missing in the sound you have now? I had CM8 in the past, but I wasn't that impressed by them...

I came across an ex-demo NDX that I just could not resist. I wanted to see how far the source-part of the SuperUniti could be bettered (knowing that a new supernait was about to be released)... If it did'nt work out, I could sell it without any loss so there was'nt much risk involved. But as you can tell, the NDX stayed. Especially after hearing it with the new Supernait2...

The SuperUniti is a great unit, and you have to spend a lot more money to better it. But the Supernait2 with NDX is more involving, revealing and has a very nice staging... You should audition it when you get the chance (Alpha high end in Antwerpen and Widescreen Audio in Gent are naim-dealers).

 

The tweeters are quite high so the little one (my daughter of 15 months now) can't reach them, and the biggest one (my son, almost 4, time does fly) nows not to touch my toys Smile . And I keep the grills on, of course.
