Post A Photograph Of Your Turntable - Page 36

What part is correcting the off-centeredness?  I'd have to assume the tonearm is making minute adjustments?

 

The L.N.K.I.S.S - Let's not keep it simple, stupid approach.

While not remotely in the class as that one, my previous turntable (quite a few years ago) was a Sansui SR-717 which I thought was a very nice unit.

The last one of these I saw for sale was $12K, IIRC, but of course like many rare vintage pieces, you're paying for the rarity. Nonetheless, this is a very highly regarded table. I'd love to have one someday.

Oh same - I have a Denon DP-59L and a Pioneer PL-550 both of which are terrific.

Beat me to it - I was just about to mention the Denons and Pioneers... And don't forget Technics. The SL-1200 and variants are definitely "audiophile" grade (whatever that means).

 

My PL-707 is an excellent turntable and cost less than $500 when it was new.

The PL-707 is a great deck.  And yes, there are some people who swear by the better Technics DD decks.

 

Since this is a picture deck, here is a nice shot of my PL-530:

Thanks for the kind words guys.

My mistake. I was picturing one of these with the pickups swapped out:

Nice guitar either way.

No worries. Here's what things look like to the right of my turntable. The other speaker tower is on the opposite wall, so it projects quite well into the room.

I just noticed the picture behind your turntable and laughed.

I'm still pretty conflicted on what turntable I'm going to end up with. Trying to decide if I should just go balls out or if I should get something 'good' and worry about it later if I feel the need to upgrade...

post #536 of 3359

just do like i did, MT.

get the VPI classic, with a nice Dynavector MC cartridge.

and be upgrade-resistant for years to come.  evil_smiley.gif

My original plan was a Nottingham Interspace SE and 2M Black with a Simaudio Phonostage.

Option 2 is a Clearaudio Concept, 2M Bronze and probably still a Sim stage.

How much does the Classic go for? I want to say it's cheaper than the Nottingham...
post #538 of 3359

the nottingham goes for about 2 grand, right?

 

the VPI class is $2750.  without cartridge.  frown.gif

I was quoted 2700 with no cart for the SE. So pretty much the same. The baby Nottingham is 2 grand. That's where their tables start.

ah.  i see.  the nottingham sure is a beauty.

another great option would be the VPI Scoutmaster.  i think Mr. Skylab owns that one.

slightly more modern looking than the classic, too.
