The 33 arrived this morning (very quick shipping from Canada!) and is functioning fully. When I get the chnace to sit and listen to more music I will be happy to comment on the overall result, but at first encounter I can tell why you were pleased with it! So far the brief est (DSOTM, as always…) leaves me feeling it has gained clarity and musicality – even the untutored ear of roomate has commented as such.
So, first off, many thanks for the superlative level of support you have given me in this process (is there a web site where I can write your praises?) which must have been trying for you too. Secondly, thank you for offering such a service in the first place. Others will be told…
In the mean time and until I can bore you with superlatives properly, my thanks again.
