    Sota Star Series III with an SME M2-9 and Soundsmith Aida Cartridge. I love the sound I get with this combination. IMG_5042.JPG

    Newest addition to my setup. Just got back from Iowa and is now all beautifully tuned and rehabbed and playing beautiful (8-bit) music.

    This kicked my TD-125 MkII up to the living room which didn't have a table. Can't really decide which is the "primary" listening option. Probably both.

    I have a Lenco L85 vintage Swiss made and a BSR 510, i oftenly use the L85 just because it plays nicely with no floor or motor noise :)

    Denon DP-30L I bought new from World Camera & Sound on Woodward Ave. in Birmingham (?), MI. Came set up with a B&O cartridge and extra weight on the tonearm since the B&O went straight into the arm, no clamshell. Now rockin' a Grado Blue.

    Thank you; I’ve been a lurker for a long time, thought I’d take the plunge. Great place here

    Late to this thread but wanted to share my Kenwood KP990. Recapped and serviced it’s in beautiful condition. I have to say I’ve fallen completely in love with it after thinking I was a “Denon guy”. It’s the Japanese model (hence the “KP” and not “KD”) and I use a voltage converter. Hooked up now to a Project Tube Box S2 preamp (this new model does not use op amps). Running through an Onkyo a9010 into, currently, Infinity Qbs or KLH Model 5s (can’t decide which I love more but leaning towards the Infinity for the moment).

    Anyhow, I love love love the Kenwood and am threatening to upgrade the stylus (maybe an MC now?).

    Still, those Denon 59s are sexy...

    Well, I have a new bit of Pioneer kit - I decided I wanted to go back to direct drive in my big rig - and so I have done so with a fully recapped and overhauled PL-50L MkII :)

    VPI HW-19 Jr, Rega RB300 (arm), Sumiko BP Special (cart.). The VPI's feet have been replaced by TipToes (cone spikes); the arm is wrapped with some clear poly 'arm kit' I bought in 1994.

    Dual CS-505-1, Ortofon OM-30

    (Others: Used to own orig. AR turntable, various Dual/United Audio models, and RS Lab direct-drive model)

    My VPI tt is shown in this image from my media system, ca. ~2001:

    I had the SME/Soundsmith on a TD-160 before I acquired the Sota. It was a fine combo as well. You would like it.
