Re: What turntable do you still use?

I don't consider myself an Anglophile (I know guys my age who still can't get over The Beatles), but you could be forgiven for thinking so when seeing a list of my Hi-Fi. Townshend Rock Elite Turntable, Rega 300 Arm (rewired by Brooks Berdan with Cardas wire and clips), and Decca Super Gold Cartridge. I'm saving for a London Reference. The other end is British too: Quad ESL's (originals) amongst my Loudspeakers. In the middle are American tubes (ARC Pre and Music Reference Power).

Re: What turntable do you still use?

I'm running my father's old Thorens TD 166 MKii from the 80s. The cartridge is a Grado, I'm not sure what model. Overall it still runs great and blows away anything my friends have, although I do need to rewire the RCAs at some point. It's not quite as extravagant as some of you guys, but it gets the job done.

The shelf the Thorens is sitting on is bowed. The table really needs a straight shelf under it, and to be absolutely level, side-to-side and front-to-back. The amp next to it appears to be an NAD 3020, another classic.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

The "still" in the question seems to me to imply something, perhaps related to the antiquity of turntables. Why not just ask "What turntable do you use"?

It's not as bad as it looks in the pic, but yes i do need to get some reinforcement under there and straighten it out. That's actually an NAD 1020 preamp, which is the preamp section from the 3020. The amp down below is a Hafler DH-200.
