Hey, I maybe have found a new home for the Zero!

While doing a bit of domestic chores I "discovered" that the Bluetooth and HDMI Philips soundbar in the bedroom has a 3.5mm audio input. So I grabbed the Zero and a small external riaa amp and hooked them up.
And this blasphemic combination of old and new actually works!

Maybe not the best sonic solution to have a turntable on top of the speaker. But as long as it's not too loud there no issues with feedback or vibrations.
Feels good to not have to put the Zero into storage :-).

Finally starting to do progress on the Centrum 424 reciever. Here's a testrun hooked up to the Zero 100 and a pair of small MP speakers. Sounds not too shabby. Need some work on the reciever. Recap and all that.


Hopefully this will be my secondary setup. Just have to negotiate a proper placement in our house with Mrs T68.

Don't they look like they belong together :-)?

Looks like you went to a department store sale around 1973 and got a package deal! ;-) That amp is great; I love low, sleek form factors like that.
