My main table right now. Sanyo TP600SA mounted inside a cosmeticly restored 1904 Victrola.
The quickest way to the poorhouse in audio.
Welcome to AK.
Hi there for anyone remotely interested I use a good old technics 1210 but with a few mods.....replaced feet with foculpods,made off board PSU with good components hence much better regulation, changed stock arm for SME 309 and put a hana el moving coil cartridge in head shell. I was going to change bearing for a Mike New audio unit but searching online recently proved fruitless, maybe gone out of business, anyone know for sure? Oh also in the pipeline is a cable upgrade for the arm.Anyway I'm pleased with the performance as is so with new bearing and cable change I'm sure it can only improve! I can't compare it to any others but that ain't the point, I'm content
Sounds like a nice modded table
Sorry I'm new here,didn't know I had to draw a picture to go with my story. I may get me crayons out sometime but in the meantime I shall put a record on!

I modified a walnut Sota Moonbeam with Herbies Isolation Feet, Rega RB-303 arm, AT-140LC cartridge and a Music Hall Acrylic Platter.
Love this damn thing!
I have a crosley with a shure m97.. i bought the crosley basically new for $20.
And the one I just bought is a adc dd1600 with a goldring
I have to change out a cap on the motor board but I'm confident
That will fix it. £20.00 plus the cost of a 22 uf 16v cap.
Hey 91r......no offence taken I'm too old n ugly for that! You gotta understand this digital technology is not my domain,will have to learn to download pics first! Discovered Mike new bearings now unavailable so may have to look at alternative but all I've seen seem lesser quality. I made my TT over a period of time bit by bit due to cost so still a work in progress; anticipate last 2 upgrades when funds allow. All best
The best, of course
Here's my list:
Bang and Olufsen BeoGram 5500, BeoGram 4002, and a couple other BeoGrams that were trashed in shipping to me
Technics SP-10 Mk.II in the Technics SH-10B3 base with an Infinity Black Widow Arm and a Shure V-15 Type V
I also have a Technics arm that I never installed on the SP-10 Mk.II (I think it's off an SL-1210 Mk.III or Mk.IV)
Philips AF-829 (no cartridge)
Ariston RD-20 (no cartridge currently)
Luxman PD-131 without an arm
In terms of cartridges, I believe I have an Ortofon Blue (OM-8?), a Stanton 881, a MicroAcoustics MA-282e, and maybe some others rolling around in a cabinet.
Now I am itching to get these dialed in and hooked back up.
Denon Dp2700, tonearm Jelco 750 LB
Well, i own a Philips 677, Marantz 6100, Yamaha PF-20 and an old scott Model PS59c. But i'm in the market for some more vintage TT's and some new ones.
Thorens TD 160 Mk1
Bolivian Rosewood plinth and a few other tricks
Benz Micro Gold
A plethora of other mods
I'm looking at the F'n tonearm!!!
Love that Thorens plinth. Great taste.
I have an Audio Technica LP-120 And it's way better than the pioneer I used to have.
Glad to see you, Eugene! Привет!
