Thanks. Of course, in true fashion, I have a record clamp but didn't want to obscuretongue_smile.gif the picture!

Have you tried it with the record clamp to hear if it makes a difference?

...and you just know I know someone who might be interested in such a thing.rolleyes.gif

 

I will I just have to take it out of my rack  and dust it off it tends to be a dust magnet.  The MC & MM phono stage is SS tubes are to noisy to use in a MC stage

The main preamp stage is a #26 direct heated triode.

Thanks for asking. But the TT needs a new belt. And one of the cartridge leads needs to be re-soldered. I shot it just to get pix up on the forum.

As I slowly assemble this analog rig, I'm thinking I might want some of that '26' candy out of the Studio...or whatever else you can dream of for me to have a Phono stage.

How often does one need to replace a belt? (Hours approx.) I've had mine for 2 years and have played it an average of 5 hours a week. Some weeks more; some weeks less. It sounds great now. Perhaps, like batteries, I should replace it once a year regardless. Who knows about the environment, et al.

Sorry, I don't know the recommended interval at this writing. This particular belt broke previously, so I knew going into the deal I would need a new one.

Belts can last for years assuming the TT operates in a normal environment.

This table is about 10 years old. I'd have replaced the belt anyway, at $35.........why not? Still, it would have been exciting to hear it fresh from the trunk of my ride and into the listening room!

I can pick up warped, warbled, incongruent sound like a dog can pick up a bone. And my TT's belt is still in tip-top condition. Trust your ears. That's what you're using in this hobby anyway.

My last belt lasted nearly 10 years. The table failed first!

This is great to hear. And unlike some on Head-Fi, I do trust my ears and judgement. Except...the beltHappy is broke. I would have replaced it anyway simply to start anew, not due to need or requirement. And log my own hours.biggrin.gif

Unless you have a DD TT and forget belts altogether.
