The P17 has the floating suspension

Yes, kinda rare at this level, but I like it.

the auto stop which I like as I frequently snooze while playing records.

in fact, it is full auto, select record size, and pull the lever and it plays the record, then returns to rest.  I use it when doing other things around the house.   Got so used to it, I had to fit a Q-up to my main table.

The headshell is rare.

I recently needed one, and found there are generic replacements you can get.  The one in my photo is one of those.

Pro-ject RPM 9.2SE sitting on Pearl 2 phono pre and feeding a DIY built headphone amp (wanna be pre-amp). Sub-optimal but simple and effective.

OMG David that is such an indictment on your record playing system! I will occasionally drift off listening to CD, even on my pretty spectacular CD player. But, soft or loud, rock, classical, jazz or folk - once an LP record goes on, I'm riveted to the music.

If the music is good and relaxing, and after long day, there’s a good chance you will nod off. Now you don’t want your 6 thousand dollar stylus stuck at the end of the record while you are in slumber! That’s why it’s good to have the auto lift.

Actually David, you could run your $6000 stylus on the almost unmodulated inner track of a record for thousands of hours and not damage it!

My Yamaha PF-800 with Ortofon 2M blue cartridge/ Schitt Mani/Sansui AU-505/ B&W CM1. I think it is a good combo for my small listening room.

Thanks Greg.

It will probably be sometime next year, when a family member travels to Japan and Singapore. There should be some better prices over there than locally.

Very nice setup you have there Greg. The speakers must sound awesome with all them complimenting hardware and that solidsteel rack. The CFM cables would be among the best cables in my opinion, presenting a very balanced sound and the micro detail in the soundstage is unparalleled. I know, I have a whole set like yours.

Pulled out the Technics with Garrott K3 to listen to some new 180gm vinyl on HPs. Temp setup whilst the wife does school reports.
