Is that where the turntable normally sits?? Is this not affected when those speakers are cranked??
Additionally, should it not say Le Systeme??
Also, what does J'accuse mean?? I can find that it translates to I accuse or relates to a peom. Neither make sense for your post.
Well, I think it's time I posted a piccy of my system! I just got my new t.v today, a Panasonic TX-32LZD85 with 1080/24p, 100Hz and a host of other features. Obviously, it looks awsome!
The other components on my system at the moment are an Arcam FMJ A32 amplifier, an Arcam CD73 CD Player, a Rotel RT-02 tuner, a Project Debut III turntable with Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, a PC built by myself (which includes a Pioneer Blu-ray player, a NVidea 8800GTS GPU capable of way over 1080p, a Cambridge Audio DACMagic, an AMD Phenom 64bit Quad-core 9850 CPU and it's all running Vista Home Premium in either 32 or 64 bit mode) and a pair of Wharfedale EVO2-30 speakers. The results? An absolutly stunning sound (and now vision) system!
P.S - I appologise if the image is badly calibrated, but I havn't had the chance to set-up my screen correctly yet, so the white balance may be a bit iffy on the photo! (oh and I have way more vinyl and CDs that those featured!!!)
Next upgrade? A Thorens TD-125 Mk.II with an SME 3009 and an external DC PSU!
And this is in your bedroom, young Hughes? I had a black and white portable and a tape recorder in mine!! Boy, am I jealous!!
He, he, he, thanks!
Messiah: It should be systeme - silly me! And J'accuse is what Mr.Everard calls me...you can decipher why...
Gerrardsnails: Until today I had 14" colour portable; it's weired having people's faces full size in my bedroom!
Goodness Hughsey that`s an incredible set up for a bedroom!
Wish I had a picture of mine when I was your age. I had a record player in the shape of a small travel case (on the floor!) and a Waltham cassette player. The room was 7ft by 6ft, had bunkbeds and was shared with my brother. Oh, and no central heating either!
Good luck to you!
The turntable seems to be fine - I've had no problems with vibrations etc apart from the motor which produces a 50Hz hum but it's a common problem. I'm also going to get a better rack soon, and I'll wall mount the turntable then.
I must add a bit about wires, because it's all the rage these days!
Interconnects: Between CD Player and Amp - Atlas Equator Mk.II
Between Tuner and Amp - QED Qunex III
Between TV and Amp - QED Qunex I
B etween PC and Amp - Russ Andrews Mini-jack to RCA
Speaker Cable: Maplin Premium Bi-wire 99.99999% OFC High-purity Copper Cable
HDMI: Monster Cable 2m worth a ridiculous £130.
Coaxial Aerial Cable: QED QUNEX RVR
I'd get those speakers well away from the stand before thinking about that - at the moment you must be getting more feeback than an A++++++ ebay seller.
Course, you did tell Hifi Choice (or whatever it was) that you had a Sondek. D'you think they'll ask for their KEFs back?

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story...
Or one about E70s
I'm confused. Did you not purchase a pair of 685s and rave about them recently???? What happened????
System looks nice BTW and thats a great TV. Panasonic are making some great screens at the moment. Those Wharfies are too close together mind. Is there no way of seperating them a bit more?
Tres bien Monsieur accus‚! Love the amp. Wanted one myself but couldn't afford it. I had a CD73 too and it's a great bit of kit. Think you should rename the post though:
...I borrow a friends Sondek every so often when I get new speakers or a really good album I want to show off. But, yes I did say I had a Sondek, which isn't strictly true...
Nothing untrue about the E70s though, I'm still searching for a pair, but I've never had any.
The 685s? They're downstairs at the mo, serving duties on my parent's home-cinema. I swapped them over yesterday because the Wharfedales are much better for movies, which I am watching plenty of at the mo, due to the new T.V.
