Cartridge Closeups...

Post by Blue Angel » 31 Oct 2008 23:49

Hi Ozzi

Welcome to VE :D Lovely gears you have and fine photographs too. Look after that Ortofon cart. It has a heart of gold.

@ Jos

I may still have a photograph of the mounting plate I made and can mail it for upload.

@ Andre, Happy Halloween!

Yup, I'll put it in the Gallery if you can
locate it and mail it to me...
BTW: Your "Adaptor Plate" is not slightly
wedge shaped like for the Ortofon Royal
SPU one is it? In Starboy's Gallery pic of
one he seems to have installed it back-
wards?? Wonder why....something to do
with getting his VTA right..??

Hi Jos

Can't remember. I'll look to find it. I think it's flat and wedged on the underside. I made it to fit an sme cheescake 'shell as this was what the old bloke needed.

Happy Halloween to you too :D

Last year was a mess. Some kid sprayed my varnished garage doors with some kind of foam, needing a stripdown and repaint. 30 years of patina gone :evil:

Blue,

Halloween has become the 2nd most feted
holiday(after Xmas) around here. Mainly by
the younger crowd.....My car was slathered
in green dishwashing liquid and wrapped up
in toiletpaper/kitchenrolls. Looked like a very
large Egyptian Pharaonic mummy....

Very very funny! After opening up one door
and freeing the windscreen I Iaughed :twisted:
all the way to the Washerama....Needed two
turns (Operator donated one....)

Could have been worse I guess...instant glue or such :lol:

Here's a rare one. Beautiful sound, after a wee touch of rubber treatment.

Nice to see another Blue Note user out there and the upgraded version of my own Boboli at that! Nice one.

I am not alone at last (although I have found one or two other users)

The Denon DL103, probably the most popular cartridge of all time.
