Yes, that really is over the top to sell the stylus tracking scales at £65 when I purchased mine for £6 of ebay.

And then the MCRU £65 product listing states:

"Beware of more expensive gauges which do exactly the same job as this one."

'Vinyl Art' LP shelves - were £30 each, now £24 each

Oak shelf with section removed for LPs to sit in, plus single pin fixings.

Asked my local carpenter - £10 per shelf including fixings and "10 second" job to take a section out. "Bung us a drink, Paul, and I'll fit 'em next time I'm passing".

Now, if we call a shelf a 'Vinyl Art LP shelf' it is transformed into an audiophile installation...wonder if the fixings can be silver plated? What about making the raw plugs from an exclusive compound of sorbothane and carbon fibre?

It has nothing to do with Audio Talk. If you have an issue about what is said in private...follow your own advice and discuss it in private.

Well they look OK but none of my furniture is Oak so £30 a shelf then about £5,000 to refurnish the lounge to match? No I don't think so.
