Re: What turntable do you still use?

Entry Music Hall mmf-2.2 w/ stock Goldring Elektra cartridge.
This wasn't my finest moment in a used purchase, because the motor is very noisy and sometimes needs a push of the platter to get it moving. The cartridge has a generic replacement stylus and I'm not sure it is conical or eliptical, so I'd like to replace it with a Grado Black.
A replacement motor is $50 and a Grado cartridge is $100, so I'm using my turntable as it is until the motor dies completely.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

Turntable - Ariston RD 80 SL, with dampened steel - an old scotish hehehehe (1983)
Arm - Roksan Tabriz with the special phono kit cables, because at that time I had an Audio-Technica AT-OC7 and was in de balanced wagon - old... (1992)
Cartridge - Sumiko Blue Point nr 2 - not so old (2010)




EDIT: I can't seem to be able to link a photo of my set. I'm using the [img] code with a link to imgur.com, is it because I'm a new member?

Here is a photo of my MH mmf2.2 turntable (w/ Proton amp and Mission speakers) in a less than ideal set-up.

I had the xb too. It was a fine sounding turntable with lots of PRaT that made you feet want to dance. Sold it because the sprung suspension made the tonearm skip easily, and I wasn't willing to mount it on the wall because I didn't have a dedicated room for my stereo.

Not my system but my uncles. He uses a Basis turntable but it has a separate power supply. Not much more do I know other than he has a very sensitive setup.
