    Sorry about the MF, but it does sound good, I also have the matching X-Can v3.

    Copland is the CSA29, nice upgrade from the CSA14, shame there is no phono stage in this one though.

    Just added an Exposure 1010 amp and Wharfedale Diamond 9.1s to the collection.

    Luxman made some good products.

    It sounds surprisingly good.


    I replaced the baseplate of the TT with 6mm MDF and that seemed to make the biggest difference.
    Tone arm is my first Unipivot and the V15mkIII I have not heard since the 80s.


    All up it owes me about 125 pounds, the Shure is on loan. I have a Sumiko Blue Point Special Evo III that may end up in there.

    That's a bit of bargain, although I suspect they are more plentiful in your neck of the woods, like hens teeth here, the Luxman I mean

    Yes, there are quite a few Luxman TTs available over here.

    still a good price, you'd be lucky to get your (needing rewired) Hadcock for that in the UK, never mind a tasty spinner too.

    The Hadcock was a mere $240 including post from Queensland. That is where all the money went, the luxman was going in a skip and the V15 is on loan.
    I don't count my time or cost of cleaning materials etc.


    I quite like it, a totally different sound to the Rock with AT OC9/III and a j7 modded RB250.


    The MF X-LPS is MM and MC so I can plug them both in and switch between them.

    The V15mkIII is a damn fine mm cart with no obvious flaws. I doubt the blue point special will be any better on that deck and with that arm.
