    Quite a comprehensive selection There is a big Garrard following but only on a few models which I can’t remember, but they soup them up a bit and usually make a new plinth and swear by the incredible sound

    That cane from Tel aviv, Tazstudio they sell on Etsy. Its ok, the cork isn't very dense and there is no recess for a LP lable. After listening to it for awhile I do not think, at least with the KD500 cork is the right choice. I will give it to my nephew for the Systemdek IIX. Maybe it will work better there.

    I've only got 3. I feel inadequate at times. Then I throw a record on and turn it up!!

    All pics are just interweb grabs.

    Garrard 82 for $25. Right channel has a hum that I need to run down.

    Technics SL-D2 for $70. Came with a low mileage Shure Premier cartidge. Nice solid machine.

    Technics SL-1360 for $140. Paid that since it is both rare and a stacker model. It didn't come with the standard spindle or 45 adapter but it did come with the hard to find stacker spindle that works. It also came with an Empire 2000E/III that recently had the needle break off. Looking for a good replacement stylus or NOS. Using a Shure M97xE at the moment and am happy with the results. Runs very smooth whether in manual through full auto.

    New room. Added a second rack and brought my Optonica RP3636 out of retirement. Purchased new 40 years ago and playing nicely with a Ortofon Cadenza Bronze mounted sitting next to my Origin Live Resolution. Both connected to the VAC Renaissance 3.

    I have a Thorens TD124 and a grease bearing Garrard 301. Both are currently out of service for tonearm/cartridge changes. 301 wants a new plinth too :)

    Just picked this up tonight! Sansui FR-3060, extremely good condition, but no belt. I ordered one, but is there anything I should do before the belt arrives?

    Grumpy,
    What are your thoughts on the Marantz 6300 that you own?
    I have a 6300 and it looks and sounds awesome. I know that it isn't quarts locked has that ever been an issue for you?

    Are you sure Thorens TD124 will not fall from the wall? I would keep it on a safer place.

    Just finished "restoring" a Denon 57L DD - just needed a cleanup, new output cables and "feet". Runs and sounds great - using a AT 440ML which seems to suit it well. Would till like to try the "original Denon MM cartridge with it...

    Just joined the forum - appreciate the knowledge I'm picking up here....

    Welcome to the AK turn table forum.

    Looks like a Technic SL-D202 or D303 or something similar. :idea:
