Re: What turntable do you still use?

Having been away from vinyl for a number of years I recently picked up a mint Clearaudio Concept turntable and am loving it. There (sadly) seems to be a good chance that the LP release of an album will have had less compression applied to it than the CD release these days, so it's almost like it's becoming the high-end playback medium compared to CD, which is kind of ironic. There is some also really nice quality vinyl around at the moment, which definitely helps, although to be fair there is also a lot of mediocre quality stuff out there.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

I am one of the many who settled on a Technics SL1200mk2 and just got on with it. I have a Denon DL160 on it now. I really like this combination. I bought my SL1200 new back in about 2009, just before the price doubled. In hindsight, I was lucky to get it when I did. It has served me extremely well.

An SP10mk3 or a completely refurbed Thorens TD124 or TD125, or a Garrard 301 would be better, I'm sure. But I like knowing my turntable was bought new, and has no hidden issues mucking up its performance.

Re: What turntable do you still use?

I'm impressed with the various admirable tts posted here.
I'm using a '76 Lafayette T-6000 direct drive turntable. It does have an entry level Jelco SA200 medium-mass arm. I'm using an older Shure M95ED cartridge w/ a generic replacement stylus. The sound is warm and smooth.

I'll post up some pics when I get enough posts for it. Seems like there's a lot of rules in this forum.

VPI HW-19 Mk. III at this point.


Has since been upgraded with a Mk.IV platter and un upgraded Rega arm. The finish was done by a local bass guitar luthier. It's rather remarkable in that the grain seems to jump off it depending on what angle you're standing.

+1 more! Here's my living room player along with my awesome looking Pioneer SX-1980.

These sound really sweet with the JBL L300's I have them paired with.
