I just put the elusive S arm on my Denon DP-59L. It's pretty sweet! Cartridge is a Nagaoka MP-500.

Yeah, great looking table!

 

What are the knobs on the right on the base of the arm?

Thanks.  They are for anti-skate, and resonance damping.

The $50 turntables my dad picked up at a estate sale and mailed to me.

both are the international model with the 110-120v/220-240v setting and the europe power prong.

 

can anyone help me figure out the date?

NH1GJ52XXX

NH1GJ52XXX

the last 3 digits are within 8 numbers of each other.

I would say maybe 2001, July?

 

Those look like they are in great shape...

I figured one was anti skate, but couldn't think what the second one would be.  That's pretty neat.  Any idea how it goes about doing its thing?  Can you hear a difference?

Oh boy!  I got some new stuff!

Seriously, I am very jealous of that rig. A Traveler is on my wishlist for my next table and I think the DNA Sonett is one of the best looking amps out there, bar none. Plus the new cleaner should result in some super silent vinyl.

 

I am currently working my way up to a KAB EV1 sometime in the next few weeks. My paint pad record vacuuming system just isn't doing as much as I would like. I am hoping the EV1 makes a bigger difference.

So supposedly it will shift the tonearm resonance frequency around so that the DP-59L can use pretty much any cartridge on the planet. I've never really had a resonance problem that I know of, though, so I can't really say I can hear a difference.

Nice.  I'm also running the Sonata 1.  It's an extremely musical cart.  I've actually  been tempted though to try out a moving coil, but I know that MC's in the price range I'd be looking at won't sound nearly as musical as the Sonata 1.  Was thinking maybe Dynavector 10x5.

Not really something new exept that I bought a good spotlight zo I can see where I'm cueing. And I found a yellow transparent Cranberries album that made it look pretty stunning.

Holy poop that is a cool pic!  I need to try that on my VPI. I have a blue vinyl of Porcupine Tree's Deadwing...

That is a WAY cool photo!  Nicely done.

Thanks man.  Grado, VPI, Soundsmith and the Signal Cables are in your neck of the woods.  DNA is out in Cali. Made in the USA!  

 

Just finished swapping out the old Sonata for the new one.  And I'm on vacation for nine days!  Plans are to alphabetize,  clean and listen and catalog all the records.

 

Woo hoo!
