Three Technics (SL-110, SL-120 mkI, Sl-10)
Three Lenco (two L-70, one L-75)
Two Linn (Basic and LP12)
Acoustical 3100SG
Philips GA-312
Thorens TD-150 mk II
Dual 1009
Garrard 401

I think I need to get one more, 13 is bad luck. I would love to hear, or see, a Pink Triangle, very rare in continental Europe. Or a second Thorens, the TD-126 looks wonderful.

Still happily married by the way :D

I've tried to keep up the list, but its difficult while trying to also hide them all from HI.

Dual 1228 - just got it, and it needs a rebuild. Will probably end up in a different plinth... mdf, or maybe cast concrete with rimu surround. - edit - sold it. Garrard is far more interesting ie less reliable and poorly engineered hence a challenge.

Edit - Dual since sold to a very happy new entrant to vinyl

Oh-oh. Got the idler bug. The collection has expanded to include Garrards:

SL-95B, a very original example in excellent condition bought for $0.50, yes Virginia you heard it right, the equivalent of 30 US cents. Needs a cartridge slide and cart (garage-a-records are currently processing the order).

Edit - now running - long story contained in a thread at viewtopic.php?t=19990

Zero 100S - a real dog. Filthy. Pick up wires cut at both ends of the arm, 110V 60hz motor (we are 230V 50hz here in NZ) more side play than shaft diameter on the platter, and the obligatory free floating (on 4 axis) tone arm. Still, looks cool though. Like an early Corvette - beautiful to look at, horrible engineering, crap performance...

SP-25 mkIV - stroke of luck - its the same cartridge slide as the SL-95B!! Plays nicely, took a bit to get the auto mechanism working though. Currently fitted with an AT "bottom of the heap" cart.

Two of these now. Second was picked up non-operational, but turned out to be an easy fix. Came with a Shure 45 cart so well worth the $1 NZD paid for it.

Edit - currently on long term loan to my brother who is getting back into vinyl.

Garrard 210 - two (now four) of these currently housed in their respective consoles (now NOT in their consoles...). Emotionally linked to these because the family "stereo" when I was very little had a 210 in a console through a little 12A*7/EL84 SE amp. I am reliving my past with these...

Collaro RC456 - Just love the retro look.

Perpetuum Ebner - a "gimme" that came with another deal for free. Bit of a challenge as its oddball by even european standards. Waiting on an idler wheel for it currently (from the voice of music guys in the USA). Great retro looking tt though with a real solid feel to it

Dual 505-1 - another cheap project. In a pretty ugly and flexy plastic plinth at the moment. Awaiting attention over winter.

Akai AP101 - project. Missing a headshell but otherwise complete and in good condition and currently gathering dust. A soul-less piece that evokes the 1980's but in too good condition to pass up at $5 NZD Again, winter. Will be interesting to run head to head with the Dual 505 and see which I prefer

Oh-oh. The list now includes three more Duals (1019, 1210, and a 1229) and a Garrard 4HF.

Edit - add one 230V Zero 100B in good going condition although untested as yet.

Oops, and a Technics 1200 MkI and a linear tracking Techie SL-7

Couple of other junkers that provide parts...

Crap. I just read this list. I'm seriously in trouble here.

I don't feel so bad:

Garrard SL-72B
Garrard SL-95B
Both Garrards are in outstanding condition, but I just don't have a feel for changers anymore.
Sony PS-X4
2 Technics SP-25 (currently plinth- and arm-less)
Lenco L75
Lenco L78
Both Lencos original for the moment.

I'm not wishing to make trouble here, but if your opinion of these B&O turntables is so low, why on earth did you use one for the basis of a DIY project, rather than picking something that would have been far more appropriate to the task?

Not all are all in one piece at the moment, but my query would be where do you store them all? Some of mine are boxed, some not but i can only have 2 set up to run at a time.

1. Pioneer PL 200
2. Thorens TD 160 B Mk II/ADC LMF2
3. Thorens TD 124/SME 3009
4. (covetously) eyeing Technics SP10 Mk II/SME 3009 II
