    Posted earlier but I've fitted the XA with a Grace F9e cartridge now and it's a marriage made in heaven. IMG_5098.JPG IMG_5105.JPG IMG_5106.JPG IMG_5100.JPG

    I really like this thread.
    Getting to see all these wonderful turntables.
    And seeing how the above grace cartridge is mounted with those long screws and it still looks great.
    Kinda gives a person the ok to go ahead and do what is needed with
    the tools at your disposal. It will not detract from the beauty of the TT/arm/cart. combo.
    Thanks all you contributers for letting us see your turntables.
    Keep em coming.

    My latest vinyl rig. Oracle Delphi MK III with Audiomods 5 arm. I just set it all up today after receiving my new Audiomods tonearm in the post this week. So far it sounds excellent but I am looking forward to some extended listening sessions to discover its nuances.

    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!!
