post #3826 of 3832

Hi,

 I wish I could answer the comparison question.  This is the first time I've listened to the Carnegie and have never mounted the ET-2.  Maybe some day in the future.

 

I've allowed 15cm for the cover height, but it will be free standing, outside the dimensions of the TT so I can put a shim under it if I need more height.

 

Thanks for the input!

 

Dialing the cartridge at the moment.  Takes a long time to get it right!

Take your time with the C1 - do not rush it. 30 years on, it is still unsurpassed in some aspects. 

 

If I ever decide to DIY my own arm wands for the ET2 ( these have gone up in price - not exhorbitantely so, but still... - if you need say 10 pcs...) , one of the permanently mounted carts  will be Empire MC 1-8  (- aka Carnegie One - aka Sony XL MC 9 ). Boy, do I miss it sometimes - but after you all will see to which degree 

any of the cartridges I use gets adjusted/honed, it will be clear why MC 1-8 sits in the storage.

Ok, I have another one. At the moment is humming instead of making music, but that can be solved, hopefully

Goldmund, Audiomeca, Lurne ?

Sorry! Goldmund Studio from ca 1983. the most complex tonearm I ever saw and it is still working with electronic lifting on the run-out groove. Great example of how to make something simple very complicated.

Hehe, in part of my country adjacent to Italy people call things like this "same pasta" - ALL of the above were/are designed by Pierre Lurne. OK, not the simplest of designs - but definitely worth fixing the hum problem. It is a quality table and was a truckload of money back then... - it is a direct drive built in boutique numbers, acryl platter etc.
