my suggestion is to start working on a cure for cancer and if you progress like that in a few years you'll have a cure
I can't believe I didn't think of that myself.

Thanks Nate. I am hoping that jp doesn't like the Wavelength Cosicant better than the Transporter.

Mike --

Why / How did you come to choose the Nottingham analog transport system out of so many that are currently available, and can you describe a little of how you find it unique and suited to your tastes/needs?

BTW -- congrats on a lovely system!

No problem. First, I didn't go out looking for a Nottingham tt. I really didn't know much about them. This one popped upon on Audiogon and I took a look, did some reading and decided why not give it a try. It was a real good deal with a retail price of $2200 (I paid a lot less than that). The tt doesn't have an on/off switch. After you put the vinyl on, you manually spin the platter and the motor takes over. You stop it by slowly braking with a rubber ring that is around and in the middle of the side of the platter.

The sound is musical. I know, what does that mean. It's a very natural sound. It seems very balanced from top to bottom. The bottom end is excellent, which is an area where some tt aren't so strong. I'm using a Channel Islands phono at the moment with a VAC-1 power supply which does a great job. I listened for a while at my friends store (he set it up for me) through an Arcam receiver and an fairly expensive Brinkmann phono stage. Again, very natural sound. Deep low end. The highs seemed about right. The mids were very organic sounding. Remember, I've only heard about 7 albums through it so far.

Wow, I can't wait to see this. Would I be right in saying this is your creation? If so, you better have a demo to go around.

Sweet rig, Mike.

You have both ends of the technology extremes for sources - analog TT & computer-based digital. Hope you end up liking it.

I am smack-dab in the middle, with a nicely modded hi-rez player on the way. I'm not ready to give up the shiny discs yet, and it's still the only way to play SACD's. I had hoped to post my own update to this thread this weekend, but a UPS weather delay foiled my plans ).

Not exactly my creation, no, but that's all I'm saying for now or I'll tip my hand too much.

Thanks. So far I like the Transporter. I love the convenience and when I just want to listen casually, I just throw on channel 17 on Sirius and I am good to go. Next step is to buy some vinyl. I have a bunch but I need something new. It's been a while since I've picked some vinyl.

You're having Dan Wright do his majic. It should be a sweet player. I hope it gets there soon.

I guess we have to wait.
