  1. I was given an ODYSSEY RPX-1G tonearm by a mate,or should i say,the remains of one-armlift was missing,counter weight missing,rewired with something akin to mains cable,rusty and arm wand scratched to bits. I got in contact with John Gordon,who lives in Scotland-he designed and built them. He agreed to rebuild it for me-$700 all up,including VDH rewire. 6 weeks later,it arrived back-to say i am impressed is an understatement,the guy is a true craftsman. This one is a keeper,-one for the collection ! As the last shot shows,it is now on my table,and ready for me to fit armleads-FurutechAG12

  12. Jim,I cannot believe you are moving my old sonic blocks on-such a rarity ! GLWTS mate !
  13. My current table is a clearaudio champion 2se,with a origin live arm-onyx,zyx fuji r100fx,running through a gold note phono. The stand i built myself,using solid aluminium,and perspex shelves,-very heavy! The tonearm is the most recent addition,i went for one lower down the origin range to 'test the water', i did not want to commit to a really pricey one until i had played with a cheaper one-i have made that mistake too many times !-for the record i love it, and one of their top ones is now in my sights. i have no plans to change tables-i have owned countless turntables,ranging from crap to very good - this one just sounds right Over the years,i went through long periods of being a linn fanboi,starting with a basik,then an axis,followed by 4 lp 12's in various guises with other brands in between ! My first proper t/table,when i was 17,was a dual 1229, which i kept until i dropped it during a drunken episode and smashed it to bits-ouch ! i cried a lot. My late mother introduced me to records when i was 5 years old,teaching me to handle records carefully,and operate the dansette player she gave me-thanks mum !
  14. They must do something,there are magic ,secret crystals inside-shake them and they move !
