      Hey, does your HT-500 have the original platter mat on it. I have one with a Pioneer mat that doesn't fit the platter correctly. I'd like to order a new one with similar diameter and thickness. I was wondering if you could measure yours and let me know. Thanks!

      Welcome! Getting to know me..

      I am over 40. Been in the Army. Married 2 kids below high-school level. I spend most of my day programming from home. About every six weeks I have to go to a job site. When time permits I stop at record stores, and antique stores to see what I can find. I like to tinker with everything. I build my own computers and NAS. I hack as much stuff as I can.

      No Holy Grail equipment. I like to think I have a nice assortment though. I hope to find a nice 16 inch platter TT. Maybe a Gates or a Commonwealth. My current TTs:
      Garrad Lab 80 MK1 Followed Gene's tutorial and made it play like a MK2
      Dual 1229Q waiting to be restored
      Dual 1216
      Technics SP-15
      Elac 45 X2
      Hitachi HT-500 and HT-550HT-500 is my office table currently
      I have Yamaha receivers ranging from CR-620-1020s
      I guess nothing really considered audiophile but its the stuff I like.

      I also like to hike in the mountains when I get a chance.
      Thanks for visiting!
