post #1711 of 3643

I just ordered an AT92E cartridge for my p-mount Denon... I'm afraid the stylus on the Ortofon that came with it is going. A lot of folks say the 92E is a good budget cartridge and based on the same generator at the 95E 1/2 mount and the Linn K9. Excited! :D

Just got the AT92E in this afternoon. Skipping class to do some homework and break the cartridge in. For $20? I'm LOVING IT SO FAR. Very listenable with my K701s, which HATE bad sources.

Sorry if anyone has ever said that, but that rack doesn't seem so stable to put a TT on top of it.

Oh yeah I know. At some point I need to get a butchers block to stick the table on top of.

RambinE, the butcher block is a start, you also need to beef up the legs of the stand by a huge amount.
i.e. you need a different stand, what you have will not work.

I have the larger version of that stand in my garage. You'd actually be surprised how sturdy it is (if it's the same one, think I got it at Home Depot).

I'm currently only pouring pennies into my setup until I find that better college job that pays more that probably doesn't exist. I'm not worried as much about upgrading the stand though I appreciate the concern. Eventually when my living situation stabalizes I'm going for wall-mounting. 

 

Meanwhile as long as I'm not walking around in the room very little in the way of extra vibration is transfered to the turntable. Hard to walk around with headphones on :p

Hi RambinE, I don't know if you are able to get the end caps off of the legs?


If you can, fill the legs with lead shot / lead pellets / pennies / BB's / sand or anything else that is heavy.


You want the stand to be heavy, putting a butchers block on top will only make the stand top heavy.

I may get with my carpenter buddy about making a small end table with a base full of lead shot after I get the Pro-Ject I want...

It is! I've got a lot of post-rock on my PC but I'm looking to expand that collection via vinyl as well.

If I was you I'd be getting on the pre-order list for the repress of "Shels  Plains of the Purple Buffalo". They only did 300 copies of the original pressing. This pressing is being done this month and probably shipped later in the month.

Probably my second favorite album of all time. The whole thing is just an epic journey.
