The Debut III might be discontinued but it's still selling on amazon biggrin.gif

If I cat get one of those by the time I've got the money, I'll get a MusicHall USB-1 probably. Or ask around biggrin.gif

-edit-
Just to let y'all know, it's my goal to, by Christmas, have a Pro Ject Debut III table (or similar) and a Grado Black cartridge. How does the Grado cartridge compare to the stock cart on the Pro Ject?

I would save up for (or buy used) any Rega instead. MUCH better tone arms and models with non 24V motor don't need a wall wort! Regas are also a lot of fun to modify. The RP1 even has a trick resin platter that may replace the glass platters in some higher models.

Since this is a show your station thread, mine has a modified Rega P2 > Pioneer SA-7100

 

AppleMark

 

It's worth it to invest in a good cartridge and compatible phono pre-amp.

I'll think about that. I've also got to consider the fact that I don't make TOO much money (I work at McDonalds for Petes sake), and I have to pay for a car, and I'd also like to get much nicer speakers, I'm really looking for something under $350, that I can plug right into my receiver and get good sound out of.

New stuff going on in my main setup:

 

 

 

 

 

I have other tubes to roll into the Electra, but I'm going to wait a week or two so I can get a better idea as to how it sounds stock.

 

-Edit-

 

Oh yeah, the headphones plugged in are SR009's.  Forgot to take a pic of that.

If you're selling the audio-gd and the darkvoice... what are you planning on replacing them with?
[/quote]
that's what I replaced it by:

Nfb5 to the 10
Darkvoice 336 to the la Figaro 339

Recabled everything balanced too, just waiting for the sennheiser plugs to arrive wink.gif


Ah, looks nice man.  How do you think going balanced affects your cans?

post #14127 of 17871

How do you think going balanced affects your cans?

 

Better noise rejection due to the amplifier cancelling out noise that is present on both copies of the signal.

Wolfetan, thanks! The cable is from Artemis Audio, not as widely known as the likes of ALO, Moon Audio, etc. Looks awesome in person, sounds significantly better than stock, and didn't cost me an arm and a leg!

Damn, their website is under construction. So no looky at cables for mefrown.gif

post #14129 of 17871

That Electra is huge, bigger than I thought.

 

It's no driver 8 rig but just some small updates today. tongue.gif

 

 

Next purchase 007mk1's and BHSE. KGSSHV is WIP atm so will post pics again.


Enjoy.
