The lonely picture of your SLP-05 power supply is just crying out for a vintage Mullard GZ34 rectifier tube!

Quick question, the hollow portion of the corner supports of the pre-amp platform, will they house an air suspension bladder?

Long story short,,My dog and cat like to play tag,,Well dump ass me left the door open and the dog chased the cat into the room ,the cat went behind the rack and the dog slid into the rack and knocked the spikes out of the little discs that just sit on top of the legs ,,The top platform was was hanging by a tread and almost lost my TT,,So the blocks are to make sure the rack can't come apart if hit,,, Im still using spikes inside,, The leg's that go into the top of the box with the spikes do not touch the box,,1/16 space all-around ,The lower part of the box fits snug on the upper part of the lower rack leg,, This way I still get the advantage of the spikes,,,Hope that make sense ,,Never thought of Air Suspension Maybe down the road,,,,,As for tubes,,The one in the picture has a Mullard Holland GZ34 Metal Base ((NOS 1957 )) $$$$$$ Ouch,,,, Made a big difference < as for all the other I have tried a few RCA NOS Reds And Blacks but it made things to bright,,,So I went back to the stock tubes ,And I like them,,LOL saved some money there :D

Well Mat says there is no carbon wrap,,Harry says there is a carbon wrap , My dealer is scratching his head and told me it seems to be a Mystery on how it's made,,So we laughed and decided to call the 3DR a 3DMystery tonearm,,, :lol:
