Scary and beautiful, simultaneously.:smile:

For me, I simply enjoy the turntable porn, which is basically what this thread is about.

 

I thought.

 

Thanks for not hammering the Rega owners.:D

 

Perhaps there should be a turntable thread that addresses problems, design or otherwise, separate from this thread.

Just installed a short circuit regular quality copper jumper for against criticizing turntables , leading directly to ground/earth - about average sequoia diameter;

 

 

... hope it will be enough :rolleyes:.

 

I try to avoid truly high octane turntable porn - a$$ociated cost$s have at least one zero too much on the right side ( best case $cenario ).  To make clear what is meant ( HIGHLY above my budget ) : http://www.bornrich.com/79500-techdas-state-art-turntable-packs-latest-electronics-machining-technology.html  There are far better descriptions and reviews available online, I simply wanted to show the price first. Here is the interview with the designer : http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/meet-your-maker-hideaki-niskikawa-of-techdas/?utm_campaign=Hi-Fi%2B+Weekly+Emails&utm_medium=email&utm_source=email-262 I can only say that he adressed most of the failings in other designs, and adressed them well - and compared to some other tables, it can even be viewed as "bargain" - that last has to be of course reagarded as relative . As said above, I tend to avoid this level because of cost - but this TT is no gimmick in sense of acres of acryl, chrome and tons of marble, it is solid engineering at its best. 

 

Rega owners have been spared - because Rega concentrated on doing bare bone basics right; and that in most cases produces better result than a technically superiour machine that does not adress the basics correctly. Otherwise: Oracle, Revox, Technics, Thorens ( listed alphabethically, by no means the only culprits ) models would not get replaced with Rega. 

 

I agree there should be a separate thread regarding turntable problems. 

 

In future,  I will continue contributing to picture thread - with micro porn. Styli, cantilevers, etc.

Vaguely reminds me of King Crimson's first LP - a very good picture.

I can't remember where I found it but I imagine it is from an early ad.

Here's one for Sony fans:

So much cool kit...

Right, Rega is the answer to all problems... because they did basics right...

Let's go back to SL1210 MKII for one moment...

Few months ago I was searching almighty Internet - the source of all knowledge known to humanity - to figure out which turntable I'm going to buy. I was going to buy Rega, RP-3 to be precise, but then I searched more, and RP-6 has even better made basics, so I got interested in that one, and then I continued looking and I found that I might want this blue cartridge, as "it digests more detail from old recordings" - this is what more-or-less guy on Youtube said when he was comparing RP-6 to RP-3. Ok, so I decided I want RP-6 with Blue cart, and then I looked up the price, and it was one followed by three zeroes of Sterlings. Kind'a much. I was pretty sure there must be something that would be at most half of that price and still very good fidelity. After reading lots of stuff, I concluded that 300 GBP SL1210 MK II is a bargin. At this price no Rega or Pro-Ject can compete, and then if I were to pay 1000 GBP why to buy new Rega, if you can buy something used but much better, than Rega. It's like buying car. Why would you buy small new car, if you can buy used big one for same money. I guess SL1210 is popular (among non-DJ-s) mostly because of good value it provides. And if some day I have too much money I would probably go for that Techdas TT biggrin.gif

Rega is NOT the answer to all problems - they merely made their products to be basically sound while still within the capabilities of majority of users to set them up

reasonably well while giving decent sonics. This approach certainly can yield best performanve for the money when operated by"normal" people - but not the best overall. The mere existance of TTs similar to or like the TechDas is the proof there is beyond Rega thinking required for best possible result. 

 

A 300 GBP for a decent condition SL 1200/1210 MKII is a bargain nowadays. It unfortunately IS possible for the Rega/Project to compete sonically at this price - as the SL 1200/1210 has so many gremlins that removing at least those most annoying will run you about twice the original 300 GBP paid. And a fully loaded 1200/1210 can well reach 5000 GBP mark - without arm and cartridge...

 

There is a line of TTs I have only seen mentioned online and not yet in flesh, which might  well be a more reasonable way to go regarding a TT in 2014 than anything discussed above : http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue7/bellagio.htm 

 

No association with either maker or distributor/retailer whatsoever, merely wanted to share something that might represent a viable alternative to the usual culprits - 

and the prices are not out of line with the performance, particularly not this one : http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue5/bellavista.htm

Sometimes I like to be lumped in with the "normal" people.:D

Having a slider does not mean the 1200 is not capable of great accuracy. I'd argue the accurate drive system allowed Technics to incorporate the slider.

1200 was designed as a consumer HI-Fi TT

 

<snip-zolla>

 

Nostalgia is part of this hobby, especially vinyl. We are not all using vinyl for the highest possible fidelity.

When one see a picture of a TT that one has great fondness for, the reaction is "great TT".

Just like with an old car or restaurant or any number of things. 

You really don't need to police and correct these emotions.

It just brings a lot of unpleasant and unnecessary negativity.

 

I own 3 turntables including the 1200. I bought the 1200 for $300 new from Amazon in 2009. I used it for a few months then got a Music Hall MMF 9.1 and a Pro-Ject 2 Xperience. However, I feel that the 1200 is a workhorse. I'd lug that TT around to know it will play accurately in almost any situation. The Pro-Ject and the MMF 9.1 I will never lug around, they're too unluggable. ;)

 

Besides, I'm usually putting around the house cooking, fiddling with odds & ends or just enjoying the view from my living room windows to really notice any changes in sound each turntable produces. I play vinyl about 10% of the time--90% are CDs or DVDs (HDTracks).

I need a cigarette :biggrin:

post #3283 of 4603

Have just spent weeks on deciding which turntable to get - finally the choice became clear, as did the fact that I couldn't afford it (over 10000 in whichever currency you're playing with). Settled for a shabby compromise. Photo to follow in due course. Life is 'ard.
