Have now seen Jim's picture on a bigger screen than my phone I could see what clever Dr. P was doing :smt023

You can see why they build plinths and platters though, playing a record on that would be a nightmare :mrg:

Nice job Peter
Well Keeled :smt020

Jim,
Did you notice ?
Rather by luck than design ,The Ekos SE box is just the right hight to use under the jig when dropping a Urika out to work on.
Hope you get some relaxed listening hours in today. :smt023

It's amazing with all the experience how every bit of improvisation can come into play.

I've got evidence from my CCTV that you did arrive and were seen rifling through the Jazz collection when Peter and I were out grabbing a nosebag. :smt018

Yes, very much so and I'm pleased I was able to resolve the problem for Jim once I had the necessary items in place to locate the problem by simple product substitution. Once set-up we found the problem easily (within 10 minutes actually) just as I would have done in the shop. Yes it was a first for me BTW, a very unusual problem, but the important thing is that it was quickly resolved (just over week).

So, what should have been a simple arm upgrade (I'd tested the arm fully in the shop prior to shipping it and then travelling to Jim's) turned out to be a bit more involved.... Hey, ho and everyone is happy!

For international trips however, I do carry far more spares to enable me to resolve most eventualities on the spot, but for Jim being relatively local who'd have thought it! Useful lesson IMHO.

Best regards,

Peter

Good one I can imagine us standing like kids in woollies eyeing up the Pik n Mix :roll: :lol:
I tried the sad face and obviously my system needs more metal for earthing and surely a Klimax cased Radikal would sort it but he couldn't hear me for the noise :smt005
All is superb now what amazing support and great service it Kant get any better that that. 8) :smt023

Jim,
I'm still not convinced about the Klymax Radikal being that much better.
I will ask Peter to bring one with him when he's down next so i can have a listen in my system.
I will try it on its own and just on the Urika and just on the Radikal.
That way i can really hear what it brings to the party. :smt023

And a plane to catch 3 hours later mate. Plus the Motorway is horribly busy in the Glasgow direction - It wasn't viable. What was, was doing the job properly back at base, as Jim has indicated and then turning up with plenty of time to get everything just right for him. Flying in and out of Edinburgh made life much easier for Jim (the taxi man) easier! :smt023

Just catching up after a couple of days sans The Kabin and I was very pleased to read that you have sorted it all out Jim. Well Peter sorted it out but you know what I mean. Once your new Krystal starts to run in you will really get to know just what an upgrade your new arm will be. ............. :smt020
