It's an Esoteric E-03 phono stage. A beautiful piece. Big congrats!

Same TT but I did pulled the VTL Maxima pre and Stereo 50 amp out of storage to let them breath and give myself a treat.

Really nice with the Spendors.

Problem is I get no work done when these are in the office...

Now, imagine being yourself in the shoes of poor Mr. Alphonse ( the undertaker from the BBC sitcom Allo allo! ), having to defend yourself for not doing enough work due to ze distraktionz in your office :

I have been through this thread and done other reading on the acquisition and proper setup of a TT. Unfortunately, I don't find that I'm any more confident or less intimidated than I was before I started my research. :(

Matt did you read the Turntable Setup thread? Lots of people there can help you with almost any TT setup question smily_headphones1.gif
post #2547 of 3731

Yes, I've read it. I just need to quit waffling and make a decision on a TT and take it from there. I struggle on whether to go with an older table with some vintage charm, Pioneer, or something newer and maybe more reliable like a Rega.

Well, if you want to learn to swim, you (usually) have to get wet ...

 

If you start with anything reasonable priced - and even if you break something along the way - not too much damage done. You can learn on inexpensive equipment the basics almost as well as on ultra high end gear - where thought of breaking the cart in the 5 figures really is not for the faint at heart.

 

A practical advice from a British reviewer : " ..... I mounted XY cartridge perfectly in 2 hours when sober  - and in 15 minutes after a good shot of scotch ...."

:D

Have you found a vintage record shop in the Atlanta area?   There HAS to be....................they will get you setup and going. 

post #2550 of 3731

Yes, I've found one in Atlanta. Just haven't been able to drive down there. They have Pioneer, Thorens and Luxman tables. Alternately I can just buy a new table from Amazon.
