    The quality is fine, thanks Peter.

    Your Alexandria is immaculate. This model from the mid 80s, is very much in demand here in Canada. The Denon is the same (same look ?) as the one from the Audio shop, except for the colour. I don't know if he redid his plinth or not, but his as a walnut finish I think. I'll ask him the next time I'm there.

    Nice MK II, this is the one I'm looking to acquire, or the MK I. Your picture is a bit dark around the tonearm, which one did you decide to put on. You are quite right, the TP-16, although a nice tonearm when properly set up, this TT deserve something else, a better one, one more appropriate to this type of TT. At the time, various model of SME were the choice of lots of people, the Jelco was another one, and the list goes on.

    Jazz (most, but especially Latin) Classical (some, not all genre), Blues, Bluegrass, Reggae, old Rock, mainly from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, New Flamingo, Folks, . Instrumental would be, guitar, violin, and Sax, although I also like other type.

    Nova Scotia is popular for Celtic music, Acadian music, which at time I tend to favour for a change of pace. Ashley MacIsaac & Buddy MacMaster are two of the best here.
    There is a good mixture of style between the Celtic and the Acadian type of Folks music.... Here is an example,
    Ashley MacIssac & JP Cormier with Marc Boudreau and Allan Dewar Jig... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaHZJvZaAiQ

    I will have to get myself better acquainted with your forum, where to post, etc...
    glad you are enjoying your jazz, but honestly dont get too smitten with some of the linn stuff in the bass dept , honestly i have heards some very overblown, compressed bass in a lot of there tracks , as a bass player to trade i would advice you that in my opinion bass should not sound as big, or bassey as a lot fo the bass i have heard on soem of there records, .

    try some of wynton marsalis and the swing in to the 21 centry series for nice natural sounds and also bass that is nearly real , . to my bass playing ears, !!!.

    i have a shed full of double basses and play them nearly every day so i feel i have a referance point .of sorts.

    regards

    hope you get some sounds and enjoy them , #

    The tone arm on the Thorens is a Sumiko MMT, same as the one on Oracle, the cartridge is a Benz Micro Ace SL. The one on the Oracle has been re-wired with Dynavector Litz & currently has a Grado Sonata Reference fitted
    The second Thorens has an SMEIII on it, but is too restrictive in terms of cartridge compatibility, the Shure V15IV on it sounds slow & lifeless, like it was on Valium, I won't be keeping it!
    Finish on Denon is for the Japanese market only, export models had a darker woodgrain vaneer.
    You really need to ( if you had not already) hear a properly tuned 125 with a good medium/ high mass arm & a good moving coil

    Peter.
