    Default An early Christmas pressie to myself

    I found this little gem on Ebay for not too much money. It's in excellent condition but missing it's dust cover ( I've put my LP12's lid on it as Mia the cat has designs on the dangly bias weight ).
    I gave it a thorough going over today, fitted a Goldring 2100 cartridge and fired it up. It sounds great but the cartridge is definitely holding it back, I thought about putting the 2M Black from the LP12 on it but I can't stand the thought of fiddling with the Linn again. I'll look out for a decent MC after Christmas.
    Any thoughts about the dust cover? also the hinges are missing so any clever ideas are welcome.

    Aha! Another member of the SR-370 club .

    You'll like that. The SME is OK with higher compliance MM carts, but the Mission 774 works brilliantly on that deck with MCs.

    Let us know how you get on with it.

    By the way. Any lid that fits the Technics SL-1200/1210 as a lift off lid should fit.

    These are cheap enough: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Decksaver-...sAAOSwImRYQDa4

    You can use four small rubber stick on buffers/feet to stop the lid moving about.

    I had an SR370 way back in the 1980s and that had an SL1200 lid, looked quite saucy with the dome over the SME

    The SR-370 will totally outclass a standard Techie for sound quality and you'd need to spend a fair bit to make one come close. I'd not be surprised if you find it better than the Linn.

    I've probably owned 100 turntables of one sort or another, but the SR-370 and 774 are a bit of a 'magic' combination. One that I've been using for many years without feeling the need to look elsewhere. Bung a ZYX on (with a good SUT) and you complete the equation.
