With the love of vinyl still strong amongst our members I though a dedicated thread with photos of your prize possession should be in order.

I bought this Sony PS-T20 (Although not by any means high end) off my church for $25 about 10 years ago and it still works flawlessly. I recently replaced the cartridge with a Sure M92E and it sounds just like new.
Its a very heavy platter and has pitch control and a great tone arm for the quality.



What turntables do you use and post a photo.

I have a Systemdek IIX with Alphason Xenon MCS tone arm and a Shure V15 on it,...it sounds much better with an MC on it like an Ortofon MC20 Super, but no cash laying around to get one :(

I use a Marantz TT-15S1. It's made by Clear Audio, and is a superbly performing unit with very low coloration due to the extreme low resonance arm and low resonance structure design. Bearings all around (platter, arm, etc.) are some of the best possible. Even at regular price, this table is a fantastic value/bargain, when comparing to the parts/performance one usually gets for the amount. I previously had a classic Empire 598II, but ended up selling it.

Here is a pic of my current table in place in my stereo:

Here's a pic of the Empire 208 that's my current project. I just added the Rega 250 arm and mount to prove the concept. Now I need to make it pretty.

Wow an Empire turntable, that takes me way back, they don't make them like that any more. Should sound fantastic with the Rega.

That's a Rek-O-Kut static bug. It's a grounded carbon fiber brush. I bought it when I was using the stock tone arm, which didn't seem to be grounded all that well. I was getting big pops at random from static build up. The Rega seems to be grounded much better, and I don't get pops with it. I'm thinking of pulling it off since I never even used the adhesive pad to stick it on. It just sits there. It works pretty well though for draining static.
