HI Colin,

Good to see you last week and I'm glad I managed to get to the bottom of that one in the end wink

My thanks to Russell for successfully fixing my stricken Control:15.

I'm looking forward to enjoying my music selection again with the comfort that I now also have an external hard drive back-up.

Just received back my '96 504 FM Tuner re-capped by Russ. It sounded great before and now it sounds fabulous. Can't wait to try the 555 also received back today (new to me, found on eBay) especially when Russ does my '95 551 to go with. Thanks, Russ.
(PS Russ fixed my 506 when he was at Meridian in 2006 - glad he's still doing his thing for the Meridian community.)

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you're happy and can't wait to give the same treatment to your 551 wink

I have written (but not yet posted until editing in the light of day) quite a lengthy post (which you will be at liberty to ignore) about my Meridian 500 upgrade journey. So just a quick post for tonight. Thanks to Chris of Meridian Legacy (who repaired my 506 last decade) and much thanks to Russ of Mr Tech Guy. I just spent the afternoon installing my recapped 504 FM Tuner and newly-acquired recapped 555 to go with my 551 / 596 / A500s (and new interconnects).

I've listened to 1 CD (Abbey Road) and just chilling out to Classic FM (I'm not a classic aficionado by any means, my pref is prog rock but this sounds so nice). I hesitate to use the word "musicality" (being no expert) but I've not heard anything this good before (since I bought a GL101 when I was at school in the early '70s).

I'm enthralled. Can't say whether it's the 555 or the recap or the bi-amping or the new interconnects but wow. Thanks, Russ.
