Hey I had one of those!!!! Sold it to a friend a long time ago,...how old is it?

Watts also used to make a dust bug, had a roller and a brush on a clear flat plastic arm that cleaned the record while it played.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

I bought it when they first came out in 1980 , this TT is amazing it has worked flawlessly since day one and it`s made of aluminum not plastic like a lot a TT`s where back then I can even pick it up wail playing and not skip the album. It gets used almost daily but I need to get a better cartridge not that this one is bad but like most things a higher grade cart always sounds better

38 At least going by the date on the motor...

That is, if you're talking about mine. Had one of those Technics about 15 years ago. I liked it quite a bit. Still, I'd trade either for Grif's set up

Now, that's pretty cool!

* I don't feel anymore to post any pictures of my two main turntables: a Pioneer Belt-drive PL-514 with Audio Technica AT120E cartridge, and a Sony Lineartracking PS-LX500 with Audio Technica AT112EP cartridge.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

If it sounds good, it's not . If you saw my table up close, you'd understand what I mean.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

Nah, my turntables don't sound that good, too much feedback from the arm's pickup.
It sounds too bassy, too blotted, not enough clarity, loss of details...
Of course, the sound is warmer, more tuby, richer, smoother and mellower, but still...
It's Ok for a change I guess.

They are not just audiophile turntables, that's all.
And besides, with only about thousand albums, no big of a deal. I listened to them many times already.

Like I said, for a change in the sound, just for getting away once in a while from CDs.

* When I'm really serious, and sitting right in my chair in the middle, between my speakers, I'll put an SACD or even a Blu-ray disc.
Not playing much anymore my DVD Audios now, but they sure sound good too.

))) One other thing; nothing comes close to the art of playing an LP. It's a true art form, a unique way to fiddle, fine tune, adjusting, calibrating, weighting, dusting, looking at that vinyl rotating in it's circular base, transcending, so many things fun to adjust, and readjust, experimenting, listening, redoing it again, relistening again, smiling, being satisfy, feeling relaxed, mellowing, imagining between images from your two front speakers, really realising that when you're sitting in your usual chair, it is not the same chair anymore, she is just more comfortable somehow, just like by magic, hard to explain and describe, but it's there, you can experience it, you do experience it; ...yah, a turntable spinning an album is all that, and much more...
... I know, I live with few of them for over 40 years, and still...
