Thanks for the greets ... glad to be onboard.
Yes, sorry I am so familiar with my FONS CQ30 that I just expected that you all would know what it is ... Alec knows about Vestigial tonearms and the cartridge is a vintage AudioTechnica AT30E MC and I really have no idea what state the needle is in.
Is it worth trying to find out ?
It has played a lot or records over years, but mostly it was hidden in my workshop for oh say 2 decades or so ...
But now it's spinning like crazy and continues to hold speed very well, and my good records still sound great.
I also have many records that are more average (sonically) but they are often very musical, so I continue to play them also.
And now I am buying records again (who woulda thunk it) and considering a new table for my main audio space.
But there are so many fine choices that it will take a while to decide so I will be reading reading and reading.
