It’s an optional extra on the Rock II, the most common one. You should be able to buy one with the plinth & lid
I can add nothing to this unfortunately.
Although, if I was buying a dishwasher I’d go for Siemens everytime.
I have owned many TTs as many will know, mainly belt drive but the biggest upgrade I ever made was buying the 401 and putting the Jelco 12" and AN IQ3 on it.
Also…after giving this a bit of thought… you should maybe pick one that has a good long lasting motor.
You know, incase it burns out while playing those excruciatingly looong records you play.
New- Funk Firm Little Super Deck
Can’t go wrong
I would think about s/h though
Bit left field, but get Geoff at Servicesound to build you an amp…what he has done with his phono stage is rather special
I would state the obvious and recommend Steepletone, but I see your budget isn’t up to it.
So, if it must be new and have a lid -
Less than a grand in total and it will sound great
Is this within budget ?
What about asking To visit Gthang -He is v close to you and has an AT deck?
heard this yesterday. I like, but then what do I know…
Off you fuck
How do I play my fantastic black plastic on an amp ? Left field ???
But is that an upgrade on my Debut III SE ?
I would think it would be quite a bit better
Ahhh! Bollocks. Diddn’t see that. The High West is kicking in…
Interesting. On the list.
I’d look for an Oracle Delphi - you should get a decent Mk 2 with arm for your budget
Something like this;
Or this Mk 1 is a bit cheaper with a Sumiko
