    Adding 3d turntable to current lineup (and 5th all time for me).

    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.

    Audio Technica AT-LP120 USB, but looking at all the beautiful equipment I've seen in this thread, feeling a little insignificant at the moment. Time to save up some for Vintage kit...

    Bought a Music Hall 5.3 last year. Like it very much except for the dust cover hinge comes loose easily, and not having a removable headshell is a pain. Also changing to 45 rpm requires lifting the platter and resetting the belt. Minor complaints other than that a good table.

    Welcome to the AK turn table forum.

    It is not unusual for members to have more than one turn tables for convenience or other needs. :naughty:

    Thanks! Good to be here.

    I'm definitely toying with the idea of another table... But then I wonder about getting different speakers, phono stage, amp etc. It never ends.

    Just replaced Ortofon blue with a Grado Gold cartridge which is why I was whining about the non removable headshell.

    Routine players:
    1) Modded Rega: GrooveTracer subplatter w/sapphire thrust plate, SRM Motor Isolation Base, Tangospinner precision pulley + Opal belts, AudioMods V micrometer arm
    2) Daul 721, restoration by DualCan

    Cartridges:
    Kiseki Purple Heart NS
    Apheta 2

    Anyone with a Dual DD model should give consideration to replacing their MM with a LOMC. Replaced a V15III and was floored by the improvement. Noise floor totally disappeared, the Apheta 2 proving impervious to induced noise from control electronics. Consequently fine detail resolution greatly improved, taking the Dual to a whole new level. WRT to the Kiseki took a bit of a chance as no opportunity to audition, but happy to report the reissue is fabulous. rega_apheta.JPG dual_1.jpg kiseki 2.JPG dual + lomc.JPG

    Nice to see another Audiomods owner. I think this an amazing tonearm and better than my previous SME Oracle 345, which is a $3,200 Tonearm
