    That's some pretty stuff, no doubt. No reason it shouldn't sound great.

    Wondering: do you always leave your turntable cue lever in the up position when the tonearm is clamped in its rest?

    Hi Geedee, yes I do leave the cue lever in the up position when the arm is in the clamped position, is this not a good thing to do? I could do with a new turntable, the sure cartridged is that sensative I can hear the motor in the speakers. Cheers Rob

    That is a eye-catching setup you have.
    I'm sure it sounds great.

    Well, if your cue lever "lifter" (or whatever it's called) is working properly, it's lifting the tonearm enough that it can surmount the lip on the tonearm rest. If you are clamping your tonearm into the rest, you are doing so against the hydraulic lift mechanism. That means there is constant pressure against the hydraulics.

    Just to make sure that what I'm telling you is correct, I scanned a few turntable manuals, and all of them seem to make the assumption that when the tonearm is in the rest, the lift lever is down. I know that on both of my turntables, clamping the arm in the rest with the lift arm in the up position requires a bit of downward force against the hydraulic lift. That can't be a good thing. Eventually, something will have to give.

    If you can hear your motor thru the cartridge, something is awry. I wouldn't even know what to suggest. I just know that your motor should not be inducing noise thru your cartridge, no matter how sensitive it is. I think I'd do a post in the turntables section of this forum.

    Cheers GeeDee, I shall leave the cue lever in the down position from now on.Done some investagating and the noise I can hear is from the belt drive and mostly the dust bug. not the motor, Im on the look out for a direct drive turntable, hoping that will remove the noise..Rob

    Well, you have a very nice system with the same type of components that reside in mine most of the time. The speakers and the Marantz are just lovely, and I'll bet they sound as good as they look. Thanks for posting and sharing those with us.

    Nice gear. Choosing to collect vintage audio components is good for the soul compared to many other addictions.
