Those of you that heard my 301/ decca ffss combo at the last owston I think where left impressed ?
I know I was !
It's not been used since though

I also have a grease bearing 301 and a tube of the original grease !
The tube manual is quite like a telephone book. The number of it perfect. It is useful to make it possible to speak with a girl. But we can't see her beautiful face from the telephone number

Probably not!
The world looks so different after learning science. For example, trees are made of air, primarily. When they are burned, they go back to air, and in their flaming heat is released the flaming heat of the Sun which was bound in to convert air into tree.

Thanks Ant, I had realised that. I was just adding my twopenith, I'm personally quite impressed by the 301

I find it better than the 401, and I compared mine to a Girodec Marble plinth, which was a tiny bit better in the top end. The 301 won hands down everywhere else especially bass. I sold the Girodec.

Right so I've pointed to a chart which establishes any oil will do , but people prefer personnel testimony , humour and the mysterious difference between a 301 and 401.
.

I give up.

As someone primarily concerned with establishing the facts, it can’t be easy having to read subjectivist claptrap like this. You have my sympathy. It must be terribly frustrating to have to witness old men talking complete bollocks day in, day out about what grade of oil to put in the bearings of shellac spinning contrivances that long ago, should have been melted down for frying pans.

I give up.
The difference between theory and practice is that in theory, theory is always correct whereas in practice, it isn't.

You may have a chart telling you that oils don't make any difference but I have a pair of ears that tell me they do.
