Put your clothes on! A naked gear thread.

We all like gear nudies, so why not have a place to deposit them for all to see?
JVC M-L10 after a small cap replacement and re-lamping. All cleaned up.

And a rare STAX DMA-X2 after a cleanup and dust blowout. It’s already been restored.

Okay, maybe a few nudies of my little Croft’s.....Edit: Sorry about this being posted in the Solid State category, after all this time I just noticed my goof. Hey, there are solid state parts in both, and a few tubes.....sigh.....FB8F7D2C-F692-4E5C-A229-973F22D957F4.jpegB3CB8E9A-B9EB-43E6-ADCC-9306170A63CD.jpeg344633D3-392A-4D45-BB4C-6C2C73E307A4.jpeg854C6EFC-FF23-48AE-946D-6CA6BE69390B.jpeg

Steve, they are really great sounding little pieces, and the Micro 25R preamp is a really good piece, one I would love to upgrade to. If I was in England I would just let Glen upgrade my 25. Still could do that, but shipping etc. makes it less cost effective, unfortunately.

I have kind of coined the Croft gear as Shindo on the cheap-no offense to any Shindo lovers here! I am sure many would scoff or smirk at that, but really, they follow somewhat similar lines, just enough to get the job done, only Croft doesn't use all the fancy NOS parts, which is okay by me. They just make great music!
