    Default Hello

    Thanks for adding me .
    I make turntable plinths for a living , have done so for 5 years. I concentrate on idler drives such as Lenco and Garrard.
    I am a long standing audio enthusiast and like a broad spectrum of music, from Mozart to Beefheart and beyond !
    I also love audio equipment of all types, its what makes the magic happen .
    Im currently using a Garrard 401 and an old technics 8080 amp, speaker's change quite regularly but currently im messing about with an old set of kefs and wishing i hadn't sold my Lancasters.

    Hi Carl. Welcome to AOS.

    I'm sure there'd be interest in your plinths. There's always somebody with a turntable project.

    Yes, that was silly flogging the Lancasters. It'll cost you now to get another set.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Thanks Martin and Geoff. I swapped the Lancasters for some esl 63s which were great but had 1 achilles heel, namely not much umph when it was needed. Ive gone around the houses since then.
