Why do they insist on putting that ugly front on the McIntosh - looks awful.

I own Mac gear and the front plates look great in a nice retro way on their amps, however I agree.

The turntable is plain ugly, especially considering it is a Clearaudio in drag.

That Rolf Kelch is so obviously German - you can tell even without being told it's German. All that gold bling! Well done gold bling = German. Badly done gold bling = Chinese.

Herr W,

You are the only one on SNA who could get away with a remark like that :D

Rolf is indeed German, and was Product Manager at Thorens before it became bankrupt. He purchased most of the spare parts and tooling form the liquidators. Someone else now owns the Thorens brand name.:P

The Rold Kelch is actually a rebuilt Thorens Reference, the most expensive and best table ever built by Thorens.

Fred Flintstone's favourite turntable from the look of it, although from memory he used a bird as the tonearm and stylus.

Oh, I remember that one, a classic. :D

And with this, it must then bring us to end of this thread 2sheds? It's been fun, but could there more?

Cheers.

RR,

The turntable is actually a Musical Fidelity M1 turntable with SME arm costing around $7500. The turntable is sold by a wonderful store in the UK - Walrus Systems.:D

Very true & will be awaiting any further instalments. :D

But what about a vintage type thread featuring classic (collectable) TT's of yesteryear, including old 78 players?

My knowledge is rather thin here, but I've always fancied the idea of having such a collection (alas no space, nor the money I must add), but some pics with info I think would be rather interesting, that is if you have the desire & required cognition.

Cheers!

Classic collectables...? mmmm....that might work. Maybe anything from the 80's back to and including the mono and 78 days. And maybe a rating of it's performance and collectability e.g Garrard 301 (Grease Bearing) Collectability: 5 (out of 5) Performance: 5 (out of 5) Price Range: $500-20,000 78rpm ?: Yes Drive: Idler Years Made: 1954-1960

Yeah, that could work Nostro. Could be useful for beginners and potential collectors alike.

Oh.....yeass please 2sheds. ;) Probably 80's should be the latest (when I first got my Rega P3), but useful for some of the younger members I'm quite sure who do not remember what was on offer back then.

But I'd be most interested in earlier rigs, when I was either in my teens & only dreamed or even earlier when I had no an idea as I was too young to be thinking about such delectable items or then again not even born or even thought about. :D

I'll leave it in your most capable hands to get it started & hopefully others will be able to assist.

Thank you!

'The Turntable' - gee that's unique, that's different, a name that really stands out from the pack (not). I hope that they didn't spend too much money on a marketing company to come up with that name!
