Check Audiogon. That's where I'll be getting mine when my Notts comes in.

 

Well the idea is that the dust cover would give me an excuse to upgrade wink.gif

 

But that's not in the cards right now.  I'm pretty happy with the Emotion and the Grado Sonata1, so why try and fix what isn't broken?  I should just buy stock in the company that makes Swiffers.

I keep a dustcover on top of my dust cover. It cost less than $3.00 in materials to make it... smile.gif

I used to have one of these covers. They kind-of work. Looks like it would fit your rig?

 

 

Here is a VPI cover on another table.

 

 

 

 

 

 

80 bucks maybe less?

I don't see how a dust over that is open front and back is going to be very effective, honestly.

It actually worked really well, stopping about 95% of the dust. VPI sells whole clear boxes but they are more $.

Yeah I have a Gingko Audio dust cover for my VPI. Yes, it was relatively expensive (although not really in the context of that turntable), but it does the job extremely well.

That's a really nice dust cover.  That looks like the same kind they had for my Clearaudio 'table, can't remember the brand.  But I believe it was around $300.  I might just have to custom make one myself.

 

Redcar, the one you showed from Audio Advisor looks decent too, but I'm also a bit skeptical like Skylab.  But hey, it couldn't be any worse than *not* having any dust cover at all, that's for sure.

My humble Oracle MkIII, SME IV arm and wood body Benz cartridge.  This was the very last upgrade done by the late, and ever so great, Brooks Berdan.

Very nice.  How do you like the SME arm?

Love it -- especially after Brooks re-wired in silver.  IMO, it is THE tonearm for this turntable.

not exactly a high class solution, but i saw a turntable in a thrift store for $5 the other day, it looked seriously beat up and crappy...but it did have a dust cover that could be ripped off and placed on a different turntable very_evil_smiley.gif

I was curious about the table so googled it.  Didn't realize it was released in 1989; that's pretty amazing.  It looks way ahead of its time.  I've been pretty happy with my Clearaudio setup (had this table since early 2009), but there are just so many darn tables, arms, and carts out there to try.  Can't help but always be curious.

Anyone have recommendations for cheap dust covers for my technics SL-1600? By cheap I mean like $20-$30?
