    I just picked up a Garrard AT6. Looking forward to cleaning it up and taking it for a spin.

    I had (now back in its box) a Rega Planar 1 - one of the newer ones. It was an interim deck to see if I was gonna get back into vinyl - and did I! I quickly replaced it with a Linn Axis/Linn Basik Plus/AT120eb - As decent as the Rega is, the difference in performance is night and day; the Linn at over 20 yrs old is still such a beautiful turntable. I now have a little upgrade bug, so will be looking to upgrade the stylus (ATN150SA perhaps) and buy a decent Phono Stage (currently using a Rega Fono Mini A2D)

    Nice table, I am a fan of the pioneer PL turntables especially the 518 I have the 514 and love it.

    New to the forum here!

    I just realized I actually have three TTs! One is not functional (my first player, being a cheap radio shack model). Last year I picked up an Audio Technica LP60 which I have been using for over a year but I just got a Pro-Ject Primary for Father's Day.

    Hi All,
    New here too.

    Just thought I’d add my refurbished td125, took me about a year to get her to this state. Grace 707 tonearm , with Grace F9/SountSmith Ruby cart. Running with Lounge Phono preamp.

    Here are my newest TTs. The first one is a Garrard AT6 and the second one is a Steward Warner. Both from 1947.

    I think you are about 20 years off on the age of the Garrard.

    All Technics here. Purchased my SL-220 new in 1978. Upgraded about a year ago to a SL-1401 as my main table. Last acquisition was a SL-D202 about a week ago. And almost forgot about the SL-1700 MKI in the basement that I need to refurb.

    Newest addition and slated for my new office, a rescue of a couple of years ago which I had stored away for future use someday, my second Technics SP10-MK2.

    With some help (thank you Chris for the powder coat and AK's savvy electronics gurus), I finally devoted some time and effort and cleaned it up a bit and brought it "up-to-spec":

    What a metamorphosis! I'm really pleased with this. :)


    Tonearm and plinth pending. Need to consider some ideas and options. :idea:

    20180623_182540.jpg Well I finally purchased my dream turntable a pioneer PL 518 direct drive in mint condition after about a year of trying and bidding on others I scored, it works excellent, But the USPS delivered it with good ding in the back and a slight ding on the right upper corner. I viewed this very carefully before purchase is was mint. Contacted seller sending photo's of damages to see if I can get some compensation for damages. This sucks it was perfect. Good deal seller feels bad about dings from shipping using USPS gave me 77.00 refund, all's well ends well.
