Joel is actually most known for the simple Rega based "Barkey" which he sometimes keeps in stock as he tends to make these in small batches :

or using a exotic piece of lumber and various innards for a one of kind deck:

 

I'm not sure solid wood is a good option for a TT plinth, but his Rega plinths are veneered plywood, which makes more sense to me:

All of the above preceded ( and inspired ? ) by :

Grainy cell phone pictures, but I don't care. Really excited about the new Acoustics II album.

So, I'm making a little progress again. I just bought a new Yaqin MS22b tubed phonoamp for my other arm (Consonance T988 with Decca Blue). I had one before but sold it due to popular demand. I'll have to modify it again, but since I've done it before that shouldn't give me too much trouble. Straight from the factory it has some nasty hum issues (bad grounding points) and the sound isn't really clear. But those can both be fixed. biggrin.gif
And of course some tube rolling.

i'm just wondering: when I look at the input, there is only a 47k resistor, but no capacitance. Would I be needing that for the Decca Blue?

Yes, I feel SO much better knowing you have  a tray table for your tea and crumpets when you are listening!

Thanks! Tomorrow, we hook up the KEF Corda 9's and see what they can do over tea.

Is that Mercury I picked up for testing my new FlintStylus ready yet ...?

BRILLIANT!!!!!

Nice rack! (don't use that as an openingline in a bar). biggrin.gif
Maybe the most underestimated part of an audio setup.

Only my question got snowed under:

Did not forget your capacitance question; Decca is unfortunately THE greatest above-royal level PITA when it comes to loading - and it is model AND sample specific, that means your #number requires somewhat different loading than the same model with just one #numer higher or lower than yours - but may be the same loading as some other model/#number Decca. No other way than to test yours with GOOD test records  ( basically, ALL are extinct by now, partly slowly becoming available again as re-releases or new test records at least approaching the precision of the ones from The Gold Age of Analog ) - and at least an oscilloscope. With flat frequency response at the very least to 100 kHz ( that will discard most PC based "oscilloscopes" - an analog scope (and some digital storage...) is FAR better ).

 

No "generic" loading for Decca cart(s), I am afraid. Just google "Decca cartridge loading" ( or similar ) - and good luck ...; you will need it !
