My Technics SL1200 MkII. I purchased this from @Spider27 who was fantastic in helping me get it to the other side of the country in perfect condition. It used to be in stormtrooper form with a white top plate. Wanting something different I spoke to Mark at Dex AsiaPacific in Perth who told me we could do whatever I wanted!

 

So - I sent him some images of a 845 valve and Line Magnetic level meter and look what he came up with!

Awesome job if you ask me!

Hi 

I have a pair of these and love what has been done. Is it a vinyl wrap finish.

It's laser etched/engraved into the first layer under the final resin coat. Mark first took it back to bare metal then put on layer of primer and a couple of black before the etching process.

I'd highly recommend him as he does an excellent job.

I hate to ask, but what was the cost.

Have had it for a while now but finally got the setup where I am mostly happy.  Worked fairly hard to get the footfalls out of my setup.  Sprung floorboards are a pain in the a*se.  Just have to do something about the cable management now and maybe my photography😁

Made a new base board for my Luxman PD-284 out of 16mm MDF. Also added some aluminium shoes. It's like it's sitting on mini-platters!

Hi, The cartridge is the ZYX Bloom 3 and RCM Sensor 2 preamp.  I added the speed controller recently as an upgrade as I wanted to play 45's without the disassembly and was surprised by the uplift in sound in the process.

This setup brings back fond memories during my early tt years... the Stabi is an awesome tt, and you've paired it well with the Sensor 2.

Lol a "reasonable" cost is all in proportion to income.

 

For somebody on big income it may be reasonable but for the general population may be very expensive.

Trust me - it was very reasonable for the amount of work that goes into it - by my interpretation of the "general population" test.

If you're curious, go check him out on FB and hit him up for a price.

Well there is more than one vintage Elac Miracord (610) performing in Perth! Right now playing Holst "The planets" after a new stylus arrived earlier today and this beauty got resurrected back to it former beauty! Listening through a Goldring Classic amp powering a set of Klipsh Cornwalls.

So all period correct!

I see you are using Inox.

I use it for my Model railway track.

Very effective.

Last night had a sessions with this turntable.

All TTS should have these lights and the starting/ hold/pause button.

And to be able to check the cart and speed is also handy

With a good Empire cartridge it sounded excellent.

I like the Delos.  I find it hard to imagine how much better it would get moving up the Lyra food chain..
