    A couple I use for archiving and audio restoration:
    1) An AT-LP1240-USB
    2) A Dual 1229
    Each one of them is hooked up to an ART DJDualPreII phono preamp.

    Well... I have 3 currently.

    My main turntable is my Project Debut Carbon, fitted with the Ortofon 2M Red Have the acrylic platter and the Project Phono Box S. Also got the pulley and 2M 78 stylus to play back some 78's I have.

    Have a video up of Glen Miller's Moonlight Serenade


    I also have a Technics SL-QD33, direct drive turntable with a Shure M800 P-mount stylus and actually plays pretty good.

    The third turntable is a work in progress... It is an old Magnovox Micromatic turntable. Needs a new idler wheel and some work on the tonearm, otherwise no other problems. The problem is finding the idler wheels that don't cost a fortune. So probably would be a while before I get around to fixing that.

    DSC06985_DxO.jpg My wife and I have decided to do a little bit of simplification and decided that we don't need two turntables att so I'm getting rid of the Pro-ject Essential and keeping the DUAL 1249. The Pro-ject has a new home with a friend. I've had the DUAL for years and it started life in my home as a non-working thrift store find with excellent cosmetics. After I did a careful repair and refurb, the DUAL has been a very pleasing machine and completely trouble free. The 1249 has a Stanton 780 mounted (great cartridge, btw) with a Shure V15III in reserve.

    Well, right now, I have a Pioneer PL 12d, Pioneer PL 550, Pioneer PL510a, 2 AR XAUs, an AR XAU with what looks like an XB tonearm, and a Garrard 301/SME3009.
    The PL12 is off to a new home tomorrow though.

    I can't say I need them all but I love them all!

    My choice for use is a JVC QL-Y5F. I love the controls are mounted outside the hood. Minimal vibration as servos function.

    Here's a potato picture of my second turntable (and first conventional TT), an Onkyo CP-1015A.

    EDIT: Now with action shot! The cartridge I'm using is an Ortofon OM5E but I have a NOS Tonar (Nagaoka JT-)555 cart in shipping right now.

    This one l picked up on the side of the road about 6 years ago.
    I've had it packed in a box but last night decided to try and get it working which l did.
    Took a few hours looking up tonearm adjustments and tonearm lift adjustment and changing the cartridge but it's going like a beauty
    JVC QL-Y3F direct drive.
