RE: Turntable No. 3

No, just a hobby. Just feel more involved getting my mitts stuck in plus I then know how it works.

Turntables and speakers are easy. Results are immediate and easily reversible. Amplifiers more difficult. I haven't done anything with cdp's as I find the changes elsewhere are usually sufficient.

Only problem with all this is I'm becoming a bit of a horder ...

RE: Turntable No. 3

Two things I've learned amongst other things are ... Suspension Turntables are 'better'. - Its easy to lock the suspension out if needed but far more difficult to add suspension if it isn't there in the first place.

Get a light/medium mass arm. Easier to add weight for different cartridges than it is to take weight off.

Shure sc35 maybe or a Stanton 500 . Think you can ram 5gms into the grooves out of them.

Yeah, this is the problem, from memory (I really should go back and check) the MINIMUM tracking force from a 210 arm is 7g!

You may have headshell problems here mind unless its a standard plug in , dunno if I'm totaly honest.

It is a bit awkward, you have to peel the thin metal Garrard logo off the top of the headshell without knackering it to get to the screws. Other than that I think it's relatively standard. I haven't looked at the thing for months tbh.

RE: Turntable No. 3

Jeezus H C ! a mere paltry 7gms. Dust it down and stick it on the sideboard as a point of interest for visitors. I thought I had found an old Pickering which tracks at 7gm but twas in a discussion on a forum , there was too many conflicting opinions on what the ruddy thing actualy had as a vtf so I gave up on that. 

Interesting stuff to pass an hr mind just a pity its all leading up a dead end.

It lives in a 1960 Ferguson Radiogram cabinet, I've already mounted my Sonos ZP120 inside which is driving some Roth Oli2s temporarily until I've got the funds to fit some Scanspeak drivers or some such in the cabinet. The TT would be a nice to have to play the odd 45 but I won't be broken hearted if I can't get it going (although the missus might be...).

I can't remember if I've ever posted any pictures of it thinking about it, probably not.

Yes, that's the one, priorities intervened but hopefully soon I should be in a position to move things on a bit.

RE: Turntable No. 3

Alrighty. here is a second rate pic and a link for some more. As you can see, I'm not very good at photography but it'll give you an idea. - The table is finished and ready for use but is still awaiting feet and the new sony logo.

Unfortunately I didn't take any before it was re-sprayed.

and some more:
