Received full confirmation that Technics is finally releasing the SP10 R, the super high end replacement for SP10 MK3.

I had hint of this more than a year ago and held off buying any more SP10 MK3 because I believe Technics is fully capable of producing a limit of the art turntable with newest and best technology.

I'm excited about this, could finally be a replacement for my MK3.

Just received two new Allnic audio cables. One is speaker and the other XLR. I have no experience with these yet, brand new product.

The photo is both cables going through burn in process with Audiodharma cable cooker

Tuesday night everyone was complimenting sound as we played The Doors LA Woman and Doors Morrison Hotel.

The LP of Morrison Hotel is the new 45 RPM release from Chad at Acoustic, very impressive.

While looking for LA Woman I found a DCC low serial number release by Steve Hoffman on LP. I knew I had several DCC LPs releases of The Doors but I have not played LA Woman in a good while.

Both were excellent, it's hard to say which was better since the recordings are so different to begin with.

I will say the Hoffman LA Woman was way better than I remember. Of course I've pushed my system a lot this last year but this LP has to be really right to get this kind of sound. Regardless of the gear.

I just replaced my two remaining Purist 25th Anniversary AC cables with new 30th Anniversary AC cables. So far every place I've swapped over to 30th Anniversary has resulted in a big improvement. New cables are quieter, more dynamic and more detail without being bright or forward.

These last two 30th were fitted to Studer A810 open reel and Technics MK3 turntable power supply.

Probably over the top to put such an expensive AC cable on the turntable but I began with entry level Purist AC and every upgrade in Purist line has resulted in improved analog (turntable) performance.

In any case the new AC cable is not welded into place, I can always remove and sell if it turns out to not be worth the investment.
