RE: Palmer Audio 2.5 Turntable

from what i've gathered in reading on the www (obviously all true, lol) the palmer is the kind of thing you buy when you've done messing around and should be the TT you end your days listening to. if that's the case, i would say get the best you can get, and enjoy.

I guess that would depend on what tonearm adaptor / plate it has fitted to it.

Otherwise anything by Nottingham Analogue or indeed the PU7 as suggested or any Origin Live

I have heard the palmer with a SME M2 with a lyra delos, a audio note arm 2 with ortofon cadenza black, and SME M2 with a benz wood. How much would be down to the arm, and how much the cart I can not say, but I would go for the M2 and a lyra.

Interesting to see Syrinx PU2 'DNA' still surviving after 35 years. (Unmistakable despite being a bit more 'blingy'.)

Is there anything fundamentally new (rather than just old stuff reheated) in the world of turntables?

RE: Palmer Audio 2.5 Turntable

Anyway, talking of old DNA and 12" arms, here is something positively paleontological in origin ...

SME M2/12R

Ex hipster, middle-class folk were weaving their fondue laden hostess trolleys around the G-Plan sideboard in time to Jake Thackray compilations on their Tandbergs, Thorens' and SME 3009s whilst Mammoths still roamed the tundra. (I've seen the pics.)

Must be pretty good if it's been around for the whole of the Holocene. 

Looks pretty on the Palmer ...

Sounds like the opening gambit of a 1970's television play witten by Mike Leigh:you can probably guess the ending.

Black Forest gateaux and an Irish coffee probably. (Or wondering how to get solidified fondue cheese out of your Habitat woven bamboo placemats.)

It's palaeontological, but that's me being pedantic.

The turntable is far this side of Holocene  as it has never seen an ice-age, although it is cool. Smile

Modern spelling drops the 'a'.

Being really pedantic, it should be 'palæontological' :-)

True, but I couldn't be bothered to try and type that because I'm a bit of an old fossil. :grin:
