    Default I Pimped My Garrard 401

    For those that remeber me, I still have it and the slate plinth and the Rega arm and the Rohmann cartridge. Just never felt the need to upgrade but did feel the need to pimp it up a little.

    Proper retro-tastic



    Sorry pics a bit rough, it was done with the iPad.

    This is the rest of the system - Pioneer active monitors, CA X301 sub, just to underpin the monitors a bit, QNAP NAS, Raspberry Pi with Volumio (the funny red mark is the reflection from the Piís LED shinning under the little decretive box and at the moment I am using a Tascam USB interface as a DAC due to it having balanced outputs that nicely match the monitors balanced inputs. You will also see the audiophile grade dogs bone and Yoda guarding right speaker.

    All geared to music, I donít really do home cinema.

    Hi Paul, nice to see you around again, liking the TT.
    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?

    Wow - that's certainly different, Paul!

    I *think* I like it... You've certainly chosen the right colours - and I love anything orange... However, the nicest thing there is your sideboard. Now that is class (and very retro, too)!

    Cheers, I think the sideboard was from M&S, or could have been Next. Bloody heavy thing it is.

    Nice set up Paul. The Garrard is lovely in my opinion. A bit Mondrianesque.
