Supposedly the Blackbird has a totally dynamic and authoritative sound. It's robust and loud. No prissy prissing around here, but solid thunder for your phono-pre. I have been told that the Blackbird is what I need!

I really like my Blackbird but I haven't heard many other carts to compare it to

RB250 tonearm sporting Benz Micro Silver...

 

BTW did anyone else mistake the Dyson cordless vacuum ad on the HF homepage for a tonearm?

MrQ, that's a nice looking PL-570! And the PL-570 is a very fine TT.

Thanks. I can't wait to get a decent cartridge on it. I think I need to cut back on my LP purchases first.

I agree this is a tidy arrangement with sexy looks - but placing a turntable ditectly on a receiver is about the worst place you can put it on. 

 

The receiver will vibrate slightly at the mains frequency. It WILL emanate electromagnetic noise into cartrridge - the lower the output of the cartridge, the worse it will be. It is crazy to find out that a tuner or CD player etc, although on standby/off BUT PLUGGED INTO WALL OUTPUT, can and will emanate enough electromagnetic garbage to compromise a top notch phono preamp in hum performance if in close proximity - let alone the turntable. The heat rising from a working receiver is also not optimal heating of your turntable - very quickly it gets too hot for the suspension of phono cartridges that are most normally made out of butyl - and this material has exactly needed properties within say + - 2 degrees centigrade ( if generous - if not , even less tolerance ).

 

( Wrote a guy guilty of the same felony when there is no other option in tight space arrangements ).

Well, I use the phono stage integrated into the reciever so I think internal classifies as "close proximity". The reciever and the table both have very good shielding and I don't hear any hum or background noise when the system is powered up. Perhaps it's creating some amount of interference but I judge things by what I can actaully hear.

 

The heat complaint is totally valid but this is what I have room for. There's a solid inch and a half of clearance between the turntable and the top of the reciever which dissipates enough heat for the length of time that I run the turntable and while not ideal, it has not caused me any problems thus far. If the turntable is in use for longer than 30-40 minutes I routinely check the underside for heat buildup.
