Bringing things down a few levels (down LOTS in comparison to Turntable's drool inducing collection):

I'd love to upgrade (the cartridge outclasses the rest of it) but there is no chance at the moment.

My Aries 3 with spare arm tube

Hey Nude. This looks brand new and no cartridges set up. You even have the plastic wrap still on the table.

Have you used it yet??

I will admit some slight of intrigue!

V'mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Nice!

Wait til Jaspert posts all his old skool tables - drool drool

I can sense you wanting to jump into the analog water and come for a nice swim :cool:

Do it :)

Yep

It's about 18 months old and rarely used, I haven't had the heart to take the covering off, once you do you spend the rest of your life trying to remove the fingerprints

Carts are off, cos it's going into the vault with much of everything else

I still use the TNT 3 for everyday playing

Cheers

How is the Acoustic Signature Mondie? I've never heard one but they look the goods.

Now a couple of my pics:

The old turntable, a Micro Seiki MR611 which now resides in my daughter's room.

The new turntable and, lo and behold, it's another Micro Seiki - this time a BL51.

What great machines they are!

I'm a bit scared posting this considering all the amazing rigs up already. But here's my TT pride and joy anyway.

Very nice B & O turntable. I had one like that many years ago. It still looks like something from the future... :hiccup

I used to have a Project debut III as well but I sold it in the end because I'd always use the B&O. The only downside is finding s new stylus

Some very nice equipment here...

To bring things down to Earth a bit here's my $30 Salvo's find,Garrard Zero 100.

Best value for $30 that you will ever find, Westie. Very nice indeed.

Cheers

Now that brings back the memories

My very first TT looked like that one! - those big square lever switches were cool in the early 70s

I wonder if it's possible to use periphery ring if there's Boston Audio Mat on the platter...

yes it is, Jaspert brought over a couple of mats and the ring still works on them

Looks like a cross between Lego and Mecano set - in a good way. How does it sound compared to your Lu Luche (wrong spelling?)

This is what you guys need.

None of those nasty toobs and wires getting in the way of that pure analogue sound.

Nice high efficiency horn does wonders.

Green power supply to boot with out any transformer humm.

Its going nicely David but went to an entirely whole new level when l upgraded the arm to the Kuzma. Its really startling the difference a good arm makes and how the music suddenly just gels.

Cheers,
