Tantalising Turntables

Recommended Posts

As a follow up to the Titillating Tonearms series, and due to overwhelming demand (Keith_W made a veiled reference in another post), I will now post my follow up - Tanatlising Turntables. Covering the many ways of spinning a 2 cent blob of black vinyl, the turntables or record players, as they were commonly called in Australia will not necessarily be restricted to top end models or current models.

Please feel free to add your favourites to the post with the name, whether it is currently available and any notable comments.

I will start with my particular favourite.

DPS_Turntable_image.jpg

dps 3 (Price around $10,000)

The deceptively simple and elegantly styled dps 3 with Schroeder Model 2 tonearm and outboard (not shown) 3 phase power supply and a plinth made from layered Plexiglas, cork, birch plywood and heavy damping foil on a damped granite base. Make sure you have an alternative as the dps 3 (like all Schroeder tonearms) has a waiting list of around 18 months.

cheers

The red one in the pic is just the standard version...;)

More down to earth, my current fave and medium-term goal:

Two weekends back, this beauty, with SME arm and Zyx cartridge, was responsible for some of the most heart-meltingly beautiful sounds I've heard...in my limited experience, admittedly.

Bugger the gold-plating, this one would make me very happy indeed.

Another one smitten. Good for you. A big jump from under the bed unused Rega Planar to a Final Tool Mk 2.;)

I was tempted by that TT too.
