Re: yet another boring one trick pony turntable build

Given how nice this project 9cc arm is im intrigued by the 12" 12cc, 10.5 g effective mass for that one.
Id be willing to bet it would be an absolute cracker
How to justify 800 quid...........

Re: yet another boring one trick pony turntable build

put my eroica in it, ran it into a little bear t8-1 fet head amp and into the benedict audio phono stage rather than digging out the xlps. The little bear is surprisingly good straight out of the box, I can't really hear it much. Doesn't seem to be adding or taking much of anything away, might take ...

Re: yet another boring one trick pony turntable build

Ta, wasn't as simple as it should have been, but got there in the end. Im seriously having to think about what decks to keep though, SWMBO has allowed 3, one automatic for her, the jbe which I won't let go ever, and one other. I do have 8 here though, I didn't think that was an unreasonable number b...

Re: yet another boring one trick pony turntable build

all done took some fettling to get the finish right, its had a matt clear lacquer over the top of everything so that the change from veneer to paint from the sides to to edge is seamless. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1910/45448830451_7d9ff3f0d7_k.jpg Make your own g88 by anthony cresswell , on Fli...

Re: Transcendent Mini Beast Build

Those ones on the mini beast get hotter than I would like, id be inclined to make a mesh cage rather than potting them. Looking at the cct it looks like rozenblit runs this amp around the max ratings for the supplied tx. Nowt wrong with that, I just get nervy when there is more heat than I like. Its...

Re: yet another boring one trick pony turntable build

bit more done on it, though not through choice. i was inclined to keep the walnut in its bare colour, but that was not to be as son number one managed to get something on the veneer that marked it. in the end i had to darken the finish to even it all out. This was the idea in the first place, but i ...

Re: yet another boring one trick pony turntable build

more routering and the plinth machining is now all done. i took the arm board cutout further forward to clear the arm rest and made it look ok by cutting it in line with the speed marker. and added a toggle switch for power https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1916/43395120990_d7cd7540ca_k.jpg Make your o...

Re: yet another boring ssdd turntable build

on offering it up, the arm needed to be lower so ive hacked out a deeper section than usual for the arm board. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1931/31313033098_53bfe507fe_k.jpg Make your own g88 by anthony cresswell , on Flickr it was going to be 12mm deep so that the arm board wold sit flush with th...
