I'm in for a couple shots:

My Blue Point doing it's thing on the Dual 1245 ... CN1290.jpg

My new cartridge, just picked it up Saturday, went straight to the best turnatble I've ever heard, my fully restored Elac Miracord 40A, there a Shure M97 EX under there if you look real close :lol: ... CN1292.jpg

Scary looking for sure on the Shure but the arm on the Miracord is actually quite light, ugly as they come but light none the less.

My new Benz

Post by Alabama978 » 07 Sep 2008 10:36

Here's my new Benz Micro Ace that has 4 hrs on it so far. All I read about it seems to be borne out, this cart makes music to my ears, and as others have indicated on reviews it's so quiet when it encounters crackle or surface noise.


I'll post a better pic when I get more time and better lighting conditions to focus correctly :oops:

It's fun to see the inside of the cart and the diameter of the coil wire!

Nothing super high end or anything really special, but a combo I like a lot, a Audio Technica ATP-1 with a ATX-5n Compass stylus. I took this pic for something else, but I like the way I got the little reflection in front of the cartridge, almost like a headlight, so I thought I would post it here.

Pardon the 3 pictures. My son was having too much fun attempting to get a good shot.

(Recently purchased this table/arm and the wires frighten me but work)
