Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today V1.2

No, it’s a Grace G-840 F.

Was forced to sell mine at a very low point and have regretted it ever since - sigh.

The platter is on the wonk, I need to set it up properly :pleading_face:

Luckily there are nice and easy unlike a thorens or linn

Had some issues recently with the Aesthetix DAC which is currently away for repair :frowning_face: so I needed something to tide me over and found this Topping D30 on ebay for a mere £19.99 delivered. Money well spent :grinning:

The most disco deck ever.

All DACs sound the same

New steel arm board made (not by me) and fitted, arm rest moved. I’m really pleased with it, It sounds really good.

I plugged the arm lift hole with one of those screw cover plastic things that sometimes comes with flat pack furniture

I used a cap head bolt which matches the ones that adjust the suspension.

In the future some poor bastard will be trying to adjust that!

Then he’ll remember that he’d just plugged a hole with it.

For a leg iron


Two box MC phono stage. Home made but not by me. Only tried it with an old AT30e so far but it sounds very nice.
LM394 input, RIAA around a 5534 then an OP37 for output.

Back from rebuild at VdH

Like most things VdH, the nature of what’s been done is unclear. It states that the stylus was worn and has been replaced… but I’m not sure why that’s resulted in a different recommended tracking force and impedance to what it had pre rebuild. AJ’s gonna AJ I guess. I’d be more concerned if it didn’t still sound glorious.
