1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Could they improve on their Five-twelve though? Think they'd have to start from scratch, which is what they'd've done a decade or more ago. There are plenty of 'super' arms out there, including 12" (which, i.m.o., it would need to be, despite limitations of most decks out there).

    Rather than the Fours and Fives, as well as the stand-out models mentioned above, being 'collectors' items', as it were, the V12, with its much more limited sales and history, would be my pick. However, and whereas I lusted after one for quite a while, I don't know how good it really is.

    Besides, I can't see any advantage of plug-in phono leads and its theoretical disadvantages except inasmuch as it appeals to aftermarket leads aficionados. Give me straight-through every time (with some hindsight, too).
