Hello all

Post by Eightiesguy »

Dear Kabin members,

I discovered the Kabin when I was researching poyential upgrades to my LP12. The Kabin gave me a good grounding in recent LP12 upgrades. The upgrades have now happened courtesy of a well known 'Fettler' in Rearsby UK, with great service, and great advice in accommodating my thoughts & aspirations, coupled with a really different way of approaching my wants.

Joining a forum which mixes audiophile interest with sharing of music knowledge, new idea's , and personal views on Albums etc is of interest too.

Thanks for the welcome,

I'm sort of one my 3rd LP12, interesting stories in here, the latest one is in fact new , replacing a 1983 one with Cirkus. Peter recommend transplanting arm , cartridge and Lingo to a new LP12 as also due to WAF pressure I wanted? the fluted aframosa 'retired.'.

So I followed his advice and did this, and now have a new latest spec LP12 with Karousel , oak plinth for the wife, for a reasonable investment. Happy days.

The improvement is significant. Not a typical upgrade path.

My musical interest is late 60s, onwards rock and progressive rock, I have played keyboards semi professionally in an Eighties Cover band for the last 15 years, Covid has pretty well killed live music unfortunately., so I have decided to call this a day..

My record collection runs to 1500+ lps , crate digging is part of my musical hobby, which also neccesitates the need for a RCM too.

Best wishes Adrian

Hey welcome, Adrian. Your story above closes the circle as I saw your new LP12 in a box at Cymbiosis when I was there a couple of weeks back and Peter was telling me about his upgrade idea which gave you a new LP12 AND saved you money. Great result!
