I thought I'd just share some crappy pics of my second deck - now that it's finished.
The original black P3 24 plinth was just a bit too boring for me - I'd ideas of building my own but the thought of getting a good finish was a bit daunting.
Then I saw this for sale on ebay - turned out was only 5 minutes away from home - so I just had to 'bid to win'
24v motor, Edwards Audio sub-platter, ceramic ball, Edwards 'little belter' belt, Acrylteller deep platter, Audio Origami RB251, GT weight, Denon DL-110 and TT-PSU.
Litening to American Garage by Pat Metheny as I type and it sounds very tidy indeed - I use an old Revolver Pig rubber clamp to hold the record against the platter.
I did have an RB303 on order to fit - but there appears to be difficulty in getting hold of one at the moment - so the 251 will have to do for now.
Total cost was a bit less than a RP6 - reckon it will sound pretty close
