    Bit random but I found it at LaRedute, it does look nice and is pretty solid but I got it at a great sale price, not sure I would pay the full price. It does fit full width components but is limited by depth (taking into account speaker/rca connectors etc. You could however cut out some more space at the back hardboard. stand&shoppingtool=search

    Jealous of the Zebrano-looking finish on your Ref3s, looks more striking than the Rosetta Burr of mine!

    This is my main setup in the basement. It is connected to a couple Sonos Amps on the main level living room and three season porch so I can listen to LP’s on those systems as well.

    In my final spamming of this thread :D its been a productive weekend, I managed to find the Rega Wall Mount and got it installed.
    Having the battery powered Ray Samuels F-117 phonostage really helps with positioning and keeping it away from other PSU's (including the Neo/Linear PSU).

    Thanks hockman! You are correct that is a Yamamoto carbon fiber headshell. I purchased a variety of headshells for my Kenwood KD-990 back in the day as I had a handful of cartridges to try. But to be perfectly honest I've never done a direct comparison between the stock aluminum headshell and the Yamamoto. The stock headshell is quite heavy though at 17 grams, so the two are different in that way also...not just material differences. Sorry I couldn't give a more definitive response.

    Thanks Waxxy. I am just lazy & will try my Yamamoto soon one day. It’s just that my AT440 is so enjoyable as is. I am sure there will be a difference, just not sure if better or worse. The whole thing is also confounded by the different carts I have to play with.

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned about this silly hobby of ours, it’s if it works well, don’t mess with it! This attitude has helped me avoid stupid audiophile merry go rounds & frustration.

    No, or well I assume not, there are no labels on it and I bought them off ebay a few years back

    Quick update, I now have the Quad's on 45cm stools, unsure if this was going to be too high but at the moment I am very happy as they are. Also I purchased a set of DNM Reson speaker cable (solid core), this is very light in weight and doesn't stress the input sockets on the Quads.

    Should have also mentioned the purchase of a REL T/5x sub which can just be seen under the right hand speaker, at the moment just letting it run in before trying some different settings and positioning.

    They need to be higher IMHO, and tilted forward. Even at this height, try sticking a 2cm book behind them to make them parallel to floor :)

    I've put a couple of those rubber washing machine vibration feet under the rear of each speaker to tilt them forward a little, and having just looked, does make the base parallel to the stands. Don't really know how I can make them higher without spoiling the looks, although I'm happy were they are since I'm listening nearfield.
    Thanks for the tips though :)
