They don't do that anymore, they take it to the nearest drop in centre, normally an "open all hours" shop.

No presumption, you may hate them and send them back for refund.

I have loved every product i have bought so far (BMU, AP20, Doc mod drivers, TIS). I have yet to read a bad review about LS6 so i shouldn't think they will be going back.

I think LS6 is my next move when I have the money.

I wasn't serious, you need to find one first, my poor old mind is not going to search back into the recesses of over 25 years ago now, 'cos that is when they were made.
Oh no, you tease, but I will find one one day :mrgreen:

LS6 are awesome and were Doc best speakers cables for a long while before LS7 (TSCS) came on the scene. You'll love them Stu.

It is probably the instability of the Linn suspension (upside down pendulum). The jumping around on start up would be enough to get the two belts to fight each other. I would suggest an obvious solution that comes into my mind, but I haven't tried it. A thin run of rubber based glue like Bison or Uhu to keep the two together.
Much simpler, the old belt will have stretched and thus be longer than the new belt and there will be some slack in the old belt. I suggest two new belts will have the desired effect.

That sounds like a plan Doc. I have access to CAD & CNC equipment , do you wish to continue discussions in private?

Early days yet Firebug1 - there's much to discuss with Richard (it may not be a commercial venture) but thank you for your interest and promise to purchase should it be a goer.

Yes, I'm aware of that. I've seen one or two nva tt's on ebay and they look fab and I'm sure they sound like that too.
