Hi Zig,

Sorry for the slow response; as you say, this is a very small site and I had to do a bunch of work related stuff yesterday (today I have to do a bunch of family related stuff.....). I did like you introduction post, very good indeed and made me laugh 8-) can't remember when a hi-fi forum did that to me! I totally understand and relate to your comments regarding moderation etc - at least I authorised your account promptly (I hope)?

Welcome to NS1000M owners club - I'm still absolutely loving mine! So, as I understand it, you have imported a refurbished pair from Japan to Denmark (your home)? Would that be from the renowned Kenrick Sounds? I don't know them very well but they seem to specialise in a kind of 'classic car' restoration where they change as little as possible (other than upgrading the finish and changing the rear terminals) - very different to the project I undertook.

Is that picture of their awaiting stands by any chance?
Mark

Thanks YNWaN for the welcome.

Yes - it's Kenrick Sound. And yes you were very prompt.

More on the stands in the new thread.

That's a mighty fine analogue front end selection you've got there Andy.

An interesting combination of gear :). How do you find the Glasshouse TVC?

Thanks Sq it took more years than I care to remember putting it all together. The price this stuff goes for these days makes my eyes stand out on stalks sometimes :D

Glass house Tvc is a good preamp I like it a lot, its been in the system for about 5 years but has recently been relegated to the subs bench by the P50sa.
I owned a Glasshouse 300b too but that's gone now in favour of Nick Gorhams 300b monoblocks. The real star on my big Tannoys though is the Bel Canto 845 valve set amp. Most folk think Bel Canto is just about Class D but this almost 40 watt Single ended amp is truly fabulous

Hello from Iowa, USA,

Joined this forum due to my love of Yamaha NS1000M speakers and my want to rebuild the crossovers on a set of them I purchased in 1974.
I'm an old vinyl owner who enjoys listening to music from the 50s to 80s the most. 500+ albums that have always had excellent care.
Recently made the move from solid-state to vacuum tube gear, so I now have 2 stereo systems.

I have little electronics knowledge but I do have a very discerning ear when it comes to stereo.
My handle "FrostEOne" I've used since I got the internet in 1984, real name is Mark, but since there is already a Mark, I will use Mark B.

Retired now, previous background includes but not limited to: Automotive Machinist, Heavy Equipment Operator, Plumber, Boiler Operator, PC Support Analyst

Hope to learn a lot here and occasionally share what little I know.

Cheers,
Mark B

A very warm welcome Mark ;). I’ll answer your PM questions when I’ve had a chance to do some double checking :).

Thank you for the very warm welcome Mark. No big hurry on the PM questions, one thing I have these days is time and age teaches one to have patience for the good things. 8-)
