Might wanna consider this: http://www.crosleyradio.com/Product.aspx?pid=1869

 

It works, it doesnt sound horrible, and it has a lot of built in hardware. I had it as my first turntable. I still have it but don't use it. Its easy to store though

So how do you like that Gemini? I have the same one. I'm sure it can't compare to the Music Hall but still :p

Decent sound, decent cart (Shure - White Label)...got me through my return to vinyl a couple of years ago. Digital playback dominated monthly listening sessions, but I'd dedicate at least one session each month to the Gemini. 

 

Last summer, the vintage Sony PS-X5 bought a bit more time in the room and a few more rewards. And Friday night, I finally acquired a belt and got the mmf-7.1 up and running...proudly so. Well, it wasn't like I wasn't use to staying uprolleyes.gif 'till sunrise already. Yup, we're going places now!

Thanks. You're looking at a shot of my three year progression laid out from right to left. The reason why they're sitting in the middle of the foyerbiggrin.gif is because I'm preparing to move in about 60 days. The Music Hall stays, but I marched the other two into the closet while I began organizing stuff for sale.

Finally got my TT.  I ended up changing my order from a Debut Carbon and Pro-ject Phono Box S

 

my setup:

 

Pro-ject RPM5.1 with Ortofon 2M Bronze

Graham Slee Gold Era V

Bottlehead Crack

DT 880 600ohm

 

 

 

 

I am really enjoying getting back into vinyl!! :)    ...sorry for the bad photo!

Finally got finished with some of the cosmetics and the major mechanical work.  I listened all afternoon and it sounds almost as good as it looks.  The stylus is tired for sure, so I need to either replace it and keep the vintage Shure cartridge or go for a new updated high compliance cartridge.  I'm still looking for suggestions on that front!?  


Straight out of 1973...

Nicely presented, shipsupt! Wish I had the knowledge to recommend something to you.

Hi. Please look "a couple" of posts back, regarding Transcriptors Reference Hydraulic - also the same you have. Please note which Shure cart you have, there are styli options for them besides going NOS ( $$$ ) without losing the quality and in some cases, you can appreciaby improve upon the original performance.

 

I am not a great admirer of the SME 3009 Series 2 tonearm, I found Transcriptors Vestigal incomparably better with high compliance carts. An SME Series III would be a great improvement, Mission 774 ( the original Jon Bicht design, not the cheapo later version ) would be much better still for high compliance carts. If you would prefer going to low compliance carts, SME IV/V etc would mount to your deck without any surgery required - all mentioned arms ( except Vestigal ) have SME fixing hole arrangement. BUT - if you opt for low compliance, you would absolutely have to do something regarding platter - it is all in that Transcriptors Hydraulic post.

 

The least expensive NOS that will get you a very high quality stylus at the moment is Digitrac 300SE http://www.ebay.de/itm/Digitrac-300-SE-300SE-T4P-P-Mount-System-NOS-/390289443821?pt=Plattenspielerzubeh%C3%B6r&hash=item5adf104bed#ht_2921wt_932 .  Since you have the same arm I used to have, with non detacheable headshell offering the least effective mass, you might get by using the whole p-mount cart with its adapter - but I highly suggest getting an OM or OM Super ( MUCH better still ) cartridge body. Digitrac 300 SE is p-mount cart with specified 6.0 g mass, with adaper and mounting hardware it arrives at 8 grams or so. No match for the OM at 2.7 gram plus hardware. Ebay is your friend for body. All you would have to do to mount Digitrac stylus to OM(Super) body is to cut off small plastic tab - easy to do with a sharp knife. Digitrac is an Ortofon product and is a high compliance version of the current Stylus 30 - at MUCH better price.

 

As I assume you have Shure V15 Type III - it is a great cart, but on the heavy side for its high compliance. Given the popularity of the pairing at the time, SME had no option but to introduce FD 200 silicone damping, to help control the low frequency resonance and stabilize the performance. FD200 was standard on SME III, with later introduced cheaper version IIIS that had to do without FD200. Although it would help, FD200 is not absolutely mandatory with OM ( Super ) cartridge with Digitrac stylus - the resonant frequency does get high enough to stay out of most bothersome below 7 Hz range.

 

Stay tuned for suggestions regarding suspension for the Transcriptors Reference ( either Electronic or Hydraulic ) - I think I figured out this one as well, as original isolation from structural feedback in Reference leaves much to be desired.

 

Transcriptors is in general described today as pretty face and not-so-great actual performer. Much of the later can be removed if you cater to its needs to stay in the ring for pure performance, giving one a very respectable sonics indeed.
