The Wonderful World of Turntable Design

That’s crazy :slight_smile:


#82

Sorry. I mean audiophile.


#83

Oi, watch your language! You’ll be lowering the tone of the place to depths as yet unplumbed if you carry on like that.

:innocent:

Fxt


#85

I’d want to stick it in the middle of the room and limbo!


#86

Yeah then straight on Ebay two dislocated knees later!

Handy for detecting earthquakes, tidal stretching of the earth’s crust, gravitational waves etc, etc. What’s the arm mass ?

3M, a future AA bake off challenge ?


#91

The guy may have ‘issues’.


#92

The wires are wrapped around the arm - it must be an Io Ltd :grin:


#93

A shoddy effort IMHO. If a roof has not been cut away and an Astra estate used as counter weight - I’m underwhelmed.


#94

Pah! You’re assuming they’ll use a Decca cartridge then? Not even a turbocharged astra estate could wring a decent tune out of such a rig.

:nerd:


#95

Interesting headshell design. Quite like the concept tbh.

Yeah but is it rigid? Do you need to make adjustments there anyway? It seems a better system to me to have a standard system of cartridge geometry, so you don’t need much adjustment of headshell angle.


#97

Looks rigid enough. I guess it would be nice and easy setting overhang. You’re probably right about angle adjustment though.


#98

My thoughts exactly, I would be worried sick that the stylus was running at an angle in the groove :confounded:


#99

Adjusting the height of the pillar is less sensitive and therefore easier.

Stupid design.

Some ones DIY effort, I approve.
