Nice 301, ngquan :)

Nice spinner Quan.

Data,

That's a Fidelity Research FR-64Fx tonearm, a cut or two above Jelco build arm.

Dave,

It is actually a schedule 2 oil bearing with strobe platter and what looks like repainted chassis. Quan can correct me if I'm wrong.

Spot on Jaspert. Yes it was rebuilt- schedule 2 oil-bearing with repainted chasis, fitted with aftermarket bearing mods and lube. I recently received ESC retipped denon103 with midas body. Just running in for now.

Nice spinner Quan.

It seems like I just failed Garrard Spotting 101. I was fooled by the change of plumage. :-)

I still think it looks beautiful.

Dave,

No doubt the second sentence. As for the first, it gets a bit easier once you join the Garrard owners club....:)

Let's just say it's a start of a project.

Linn Troika on an Ittok II arm On a Linn Sondek LP12.

Power supply has a problem and is creating hum and buzz but I haven't had time to have a look into it.

I use the Phono Pre in my Classe Audio 4 pre amp.
