Re: Do you have a hifi bucket list?

The LP12 of course. Always.

Re: Cyrus Pre X

Callen, do you mean there are sometimes issue with the volume control? I will probably have to buy "untested" over ebay or similar. Not easy to find Cyrus gear second hand here in Stockholm. "good bargain if you get one cheaply to match with something like a smartpower." Exactly,...
