They say the wires coming out from the back of the tonearm when positioned correctly can act as anti skate. Other than that there aren't any other options.

Just a plain jane TT.
Not a good choice for anti-skating, as it is not consistent and stresses the leads.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Wow talk about bringing back the dead. This thread was almost four years old, but I'll play.

Clearaudio Champion II with SME 309 arm and Benz Micro Glider cart in my main 2-channel rig.

I guess you don't use the Mayhem cleaning lady in the insurance commercials.

My vinyl workhorse since purchased in 1988. Denon DP-59L, currently fitted with an Audio-Technica AT33EV MC cartridge.

Some really beautiful turntables. The stunning artistry with which turntables & tone arms can be produced is enough reason alone to keep vinyl alive.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

Hello,
I use a Thorens TD160 with Grado Prestige Red, the result is honest, and I plan to make a complete revision of the turntable as a result of a listening system Swissonor at a show in Paris.

Well this is kind of homemade. It is a Roksan Radius 5 table that I made a new plinth for. The original was maple veneered MDF. This one is 1" solid bubinga hardwood. Actually it is two plinths to isolate the motor from the platter. They are stacked using rubber isolation mounts. The arm and cartridge are Rega.
