Looks nice!

 

Philips - another company that couldn't compete in the dawn of home theater... frown.gif

There are some awesome turntables in this thread. I hope you don't mind my little baby Technics (SL-B2, Grado Green. Going to replace that Gemini headshell with a Technics headshell VERY soon). I took the photo, a friend on Audiokarma touched it up for me really nice :)

For $80 it's a definite worthwhile investment

I would suggest the KAB EV1 instead of the spin clean

I'm back with another vintage pickup, a Pioneer PL-50. Just got this yesterday. Put a NOS Shure Hi-Track cartridge on it. Sounds pretty good, when it holds speed rolleyes.gif Hopefully I can figure that little issue out. Sure looks pretty though, after I gave it a good cleaning:

I have one of the PL-50s too Rob in near mint condition.  Nice deck.

Cool, Scott! It sure is a looker. I swapped in a Shure V15 Type IV and that sounded much better than the Hi Track.

Thanks for reminding me. That's actually gonna be my next upgrade. So many dirty records.

It is probably one of the best investments you can make for vinyl (besides a turntable, of course). It reportedly does just as good of a job as the more expensive Nitty Gritty machines.

I just got me an Okki Nokki. It is made here in the Netherlands so for me the logical choice. I really wanted one now because it's a waste to wear my Koetsu cart on dusty records.
It still is a lot of work to clean all records but it works excellent and quick. And afterwards aplying the Milty Permostat is a lot easier. Clean disks and no more static attraction of dust... I should have bought one years earlier!

Another relatively cheap and good cleaner is the Hanns acoustics ( Amari) record cleaner that is made in China.

I am actually looking into the KAB EV1 too thanks to suggestions on this thread. I am seriously considering getting one of these, especially as I move into a new apartment and space will be at a premium. Plus I think it will do a better job than my home made vacuum head attached to whatever vacuum I can find.

I have just received a new arm. It's a Consonance T988 dampened unipivot that I intend to use with a Decca London Blue. And anything else I have. I can easily exchange armstubes with this arm just like a VPI only way cheaper.
I am thinking about adding it in this position.

Or maybe I should switch positions with the motor? That way I can mount it on a square slab of granite 10x33cm. Easier to make but the on/off switch will be harder to access. What do you guys think?
post #823 of 3359
Doesn't the tonearm have to be in one of the corners to have the geometry work? I don't think you could put it where the motor is. What sort of protractor are you using?
post #824 of 3359
Doesn't have to be in a corner, just a specific distance from the center. So you could have a big round plinth with as many tonearms as you could squeeze in on the circular plinth.

Here's the black Traveler.  I'm much more at ease with this than the (off) blue one.
