Now, lets talk turntable clamps and weights.

I'm afraid I don't fully understand.. I thought tape was a horrid way to listen to music due to how thin the roll is compared to say, reel-to-reel??

J.A.Mitchell Clamp ( late, no stroboscope ), AT ??? Electronic Stylus Cleaner, on the far right side probably some gel stylus cleaner, Stylast, Thorens weight Type ???, spirit bubble level, IIRC far left some Discwasher product w/mirror - plus two clamps and a bottle I am not familiar with. In short, looks like your Carnegie One is going to be with you for quite a while - well done !

New Music Hall table from NY Audio Show.  Not too sure about that one.  blink.gif

 

 

 

Harry of VPI holding the new 3D printed arm.

 

"VPI had the world's first 3D printed tonearm with 9, 10.5 and 12 inches. Pricing is said to start at around $2500 on up."

 

 

post #1570 of 3700

Heck, I forgot to post the better bit.

 

"The development costs associated with the arm were extremely high, and it took the printer more than 30 hours to make a single unit, so don't expect to pick one of these up for under $3,000. The Classic Direct table/3D printed tonearm combination is going to cost $20,000 when it starts shipping in the next month or so, so the market is quite limited. The arm will be available for other tables this summer."

That Music Hall turntable is absolutely hideous.

On the other hand, I want that VPI Classic Direct drive TT so bad I might sell my car.
post #1572 of 3700

Sell the car!  Good idea as I was considering selling the wife and kids.

 

 

 

Just kidding, I don't have a car.  biggrin.gif

 

Gotta be Harry's last statement, cause I gather he's handing over the company to his son.

CrazyRay, thank you for the entire list.

 

Hell, if I was not clear enough:

 

Madrigal Carnegie One ( that is how you know it, actually it is ANYTHING BUT - in name ) is/was one of the very best carts - EVER. Temperamental as hell, sample to sample there can be quite gross ( or grose ) difference, the best ones ( in single digit percentage of the whole lot ) were simply mesmerizing - the ones that were not so good were still outstanding.

 

Absolute nigtmare to rebuild - and no, you do not want that composite cantilever replaced by anything if you want to preserve its unique sound. 

The originally fitted Micro ??? stylus is perhaps the most cunning and practical solution found on any cartridge - it has a bit lower large scanning radius than either Van den Hul or other incarnations of Micro XYZ theme - meaning it can not threaten record demage/recutting , even if the azimuth is not perfectly adjusted. It will burn/grind in - and being a Micro, once it does, it will maintain that shape for something like 1000 hours prior sound degradation or threatening record demage.

 

NLA and next to impossible fo retip to original spec - so please treat it real nice. Short of changing the arm, nothing you can do for prolonging its life that you are not doing already.
