    No need for pics as they're all standard / stock:

    Sansui P-L50 (first TT, linear tracker with non-replaceable cartridge)
    Technics SL-Q2
    Mitsubishi LT-22

    Probably going to unload the Sansui as the Mitsubishi is a much, much better LT table. The Sansui sure does have some futuristic 80s charm, however.

    For me it's
    Thorens TD 124 w slate armboard and an SME 3009 Type II with Shure cartridge and SAS stylus ***
    Rek O Kut B12H with Grado Lab Series wooden tonearm Grado Blue cartridge ***
    Rek O Kut B12 with Grado Lab Series wooden Tonearm Pickering V15
    Rek O Kut L37 with Calrad SV 16 Tonearm and a GE Golden Treasure cartridge
    Rek O Kut L34 with ROK tonearm and Golden Treasure Cartridge.
    Rek O Kut B12H with custom baltic birch plinth and 16" micropoise tonearm.


    *** these two are my go to tables. Both are restored and are just wonderful. The Slate armboard is acoustically dead and as for the ROK it's in a factory plinth and it's silent. For an idler ROK that's saying something. The Thorens is connected to my Mc C20 Mc240 and a pair of Altec 604c's in custom build altec 620 cabinets. The ROK is connected to a HK Citation I, a VTA 70 amp (kit) and another pair of Altec 604c's in 606 corner cabinets

    Edited to include a few pictures.. My Thorens in the system and my main Rek O Kut after restoration and before moving into house. I love that Rek O Kut. L34 before restoration of plinth and fitment of arm..(It's done now, just don't have any fresh pics)

    Nothing fancy here, but I love my old '59 Voice of Music 815 record changer console. The changer is a VM 1201.
    She's survived a lot of moves, and a rough life from a youngster moving out of the house... to now a man in his 40's. I'm no audiophile extraordinaire or vintage expert, I've just always loved the sound of this old thing. Cabinet needs a good cleaning and really refinishing at this point, but I love it all the same, and I can't believe how great it still sounds to this day. I had to work on the TT / Changer just recently and it is playing great now, but still needs some TLC to get things back to what she deserves after 57+ years of service to our family, 26 of those just mine!

    Record Changer 1
    Record Changer 2
    Whole Console Open
    Whole Console Closed

    In the coming weeks, I'll post pics after I get her back up to a good shine :)
    Glad I found the site, and thanks for being here. Nice community and I'm thankful for the friendly help I've already received.
    Take care all,
    - John

    I am an AK Greenhorn! Since I am getting back into playing vinyl after 35+ years, I have a Sherwood ST-887R TT with a Pickering TL-3 cartridge (DTL-3S stylus)--I do enjoy the warm and clear sound it produces. This thread contains hundreds of TTs many ranging in design and manufacturer...they are all amazing to see all the different possibilities we music lovers possess.Thank you all for the information about your rigs!!

    Everything is punchier, dynamic, more spacious and clear. The change is truly starling. The cliche that it's like hearing once familiar records in a totally different way applies.
    It can be a bit disconcerting on some LPs. For example, on Blondie's AutoAmerican it really did sound VASTLY different to the point I was borderline which "sound" I preferred.
    On nearly all other LPs I've spun I am digging it! I would suppose the most difference is attributable to the Denon MC I had on the Project versus this one has the Ortofon Black Quintet, several leaps beyond in capability I think.
