Re: What turntable do you still use?

I just bought a Fisher turntable from the Flea Market for $10.00. Are they any good to go in a Onkyo receiver?

Transcriptor Transcriber turntable

I have owned this for 30 years or so, don't think there has ever been anything else like it. The platter sits on a carriage assembley, driven by a DC servo. The tone arm is attached to the lid, called a Micro-Tracer, is only about 1.5" in length. The tone are tracks at about .15 grams.

The movement of the carriage/platter is controlled by a small "flag" attached to the tone arm. As the record is played, and the tone arm is mover a degree or so out of perfect tracking in the grove, the flag opens a photocell triggering the carriage motor and the carriage/platter is moved tangentially to re-position the record so that the arm/stylus is again perfectly aligned in the grove. Obviously, this occurs continuously at the record is played. I posted dome pics in the "welcome" forum, here are a few others. I am listening to it right now, truly a unique machine that has allowed me to enjoy vinyl for more that 30 years and still listen to the same alblums I bought that long ago. It just doesn't wear anything out.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

I remember seeing those in the magazines years ago... The closest I ever got to owning anything like that was a Mitchell Gyrodec/ Sumiko SME/ Sumiko Blupoint special combo... Man you are making me miss it too!

Re: What turntable do you still use?

Thanks Tony and Ron, I even look at it now and go WOW!!

It is pretty unique, the Transcriptors always got slammed in the press and in reviews, many folks just did not like their performance, always would say the design was wrong, they sounded bad, etc. All I can say, is anyone who has ever listened to my Transcriber always walked away impressed with how it imaged a vinyl recording. I don't know if it is the way it tracks in the grove, the effortless movement of a tone arm that so small and light or what, but listening to an alblum on it just sounds like nothing else I have ever heard.

I have a VPI Aries 1 with original platter, the 10.5i JMW Memorial tonearm and a Dynavector DV20XL cart. Wallmounted to reduce vibrations. Bought it used a couple of years ago.
