The Wonderful World of Turntable Design AKA: Dave's Fugly World Of TT Wank

I wouldn’t give it shed room


#950

Being a nice bloke got him off the tax charges.


#951

Yep, that or George Carmen QC. I like the way he used to introduce himself to the audience following the acquittal:

“Good evening, my name is Kenneth Arthur Dodd; singer, photographic playboy and failed accountant!”

Never found his act funny. He is fucking hilarious in the butchers though, largely through not seeming to have a clue about what is going on.


#952

If it gets repeated on R4, the Chain Reaction where Tim Vine interviews him is properly funny.


#953


Extra long spindle for super sized hat?


#954

It’s to make it easier to pick up (definitely no pun intended!) when you’re about to throw it in the skip (again NO fucking pun)


#955

Hmmm, the arm appears to be inspired by a base level 1980s Technics turntable. I’d say the SL-BD22.

I wonder if they’ll be making a new P- Mount cartridge for it?


#956

Hope so.


#957

P-Mount is the future :+1:

#960

Headshell or werther’s original?


#961

Mmmmm…elco

Never heard one, but I wouldn’t turn my nose up if I got the chance


#962

One for Jim and Pete. :crazy_face:


#963

Meh. Needs a damn good clean as far as I can see.


#964

Indeed, looks like a child with jammy fingers has been using it. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#965

Fremer seems to like the SP10R (in SL-1000R format)


#966

Information here suggests pricing of £8k for the SP10R and £14k for the SL1000R.

#967

The base unit is a fair price, the plinth and arm over priced. Mk3 SP10 going to lose a lot in value as the people asking £6K are not going to get it, maybe £4K now.


#968

Yep, fast forward a few years and these SP10Rs will be on the second hand market for what, 50-60% of retail?

The eBay chancers trying to flog SP10 mk3s are going to be very disappointed.
