Thats more specific. Tried playing through a device that is not connected to my FB account and I also get no audio. Will try downloading it if I can and post later
It's silent on FB too Josh, you might have copyrighted music that the bots found and silenced.

Well thats a shame. I think it was tagged with friends only when I posted it.
Well the Legend amps just entered the USA yesterday so I think everyone is waiting for those on this system. Will get some video in the next week or two on my good setup

Yes, the Bose Abdication. It's well known phenomenon amongst the stressed out audiophiles barely clinging to sanity.

Setup went very well and we listened to music well into the evening. I didn't have any desire to record or snap quality photos because I just wanted to listen. It is every bit as good as you can imagine and a lot more. I am floored

Wow, it looks so different on that wood floor to our dark den at Munich. I like it! Congrats Billy.

The sound of the Achilleas is even more, in fact the best I have heard in any system to date....

Quick update:

Been to Billys system a few times over the past several weeks to work on dialing it all in. Somehow lost my proprietary cable for my mic so I haven't been able to do any recordings outside of the occasional FB video. Over the course of the installation addressed a number of a noise and ground issues as well as optimal layouts.

Right now it is dialed in. I am very happy with the sound and the positioning so unless he decides to change more equipment testing (currently evaluating 2-3 phonos for the other arms) I can say that it is ready for visitors.

I hope to upload a number of videos in the coming weeks with some unlabeled comparisons between different tonearms and carts so we can see which of the 4 arms sounds best to the members for some fun insight.

Have a happy July 4th weekend and be safe.

Crazy amount of time shooting the room this weekend. Look forward to sharing with you all in 3-4 weeks when it gets published. Until then here are some shots of the system taken over the weekend>
