What Turntable do you use?

snap, crackle and pop

After a few years of rebuilding, tweaking, hair pulling, smiling, crying, and more tweaking I'm finally happy with the sound that this is generating. Now to sit back and just enjoy the music.

I have a Goldmund Reference with T3f arm, Ortofon Jubilee. Also a Roksan Xerxes with Rega RB300 and Ortofon MC20 (I think, the label fell off)

Mine's a Michell Focus One with ADC ALT-1 arm and Ortofon Super OM-10 cartridge.

Had the deck and arm from new in around 1984, while the cartridge is probably half that old.

I've been considering a new arm/cartridge - can't bring myself to replace the turntable, being a sentimental old sod!

My Project Tt

After being without a turntable for about 15 years, since I still had about 50 LPs I figured I'd build something... So... ebay Rek o Kut K-33H plus Jelco SA-250ST plus Amazon Shure M97xE mixed with some Honduran and Bolivian Rosewood, here are the results. I'm very happy with this setup for a first step back into vinyl.

Looks like a cleaning arm. I've got one on my Thorens TD160B.

My Tt

Postby KizWould » 15 Jul 2011 13:26

Wow, I have just been through 33 pages of stereo p**n.

There is some beautiful gear on here.

This is a shot of my Kenwood KP-2022A. I am running an audiotechnica AT93 cart, factory tonearm.


I love my Kenwood gear and think this TT looks right at home with my collection of equip from a very similar era;

My tables in current use are:

Main table - Sony PS 2250 / Jelco 370H / Denon DL304.
Sounds great. Really does.


An eBay purchase, it came with original plinth and arm, plus this Russ Collinson plinth.



The original arm is a Sony PUA-114 and will be mounted on my Technics SP10 when I've finished bulking up its plinth

The SP10 is in pieces at the moment but the other table I'm using is a Denon DP60L. Bought as spares or repair as it has a
little cosmetic damage. I'm making a new stand for a tonearm rest as the original snapped off. Still works absolutely spot on though. Perfectly infact.




Lastly is a Mk5 Technics SL1210 / Jelco (LAD) 370D / Audio Technica ATF3



Great combination to be honest, but lives in my bedroom.

The baby system in the study will now have to be the main system until the house move is complete.

Yo spinners and JaS:

Primary turntables are Thorens TD150 with Linn Basik LVX and Shure V-15-VMR (Ed Saunders stylus), and Garrard 301 with 2 arms, a Grace G707 with Shure V-15 IV and 2 styli, and a Thorens TP13A (from the TD150) that has a Shure M44 with 2 styli.

In addition, but not used as much, Lenco L75 with Realistic R25XT and 3X stylus, and Dual 1237 with Empire 1000AE/V.

And good luck from the old record spinner,

Joe Z.
