      Morning Jim,
        As one of my audio pals in L'anse, Michigan says "Ain't this stuff fun". It's an exciting audio world we live in. It's great to have speaker builders, turntable craftsmen and tube tinkerers all so close and in touch. Good luck with your turntable project. I must confess I've been listening to my music server more often than not lately. But Ken and others have lit a fire under me and I've probably played more vinyl in the week than in the last six months! Plus I'll bet I've tried 4 or 5 cartridges on as many turntables this month! Keep us up to date with your project. jim...
