    Most of the time my Radford STA 15 is in use.After that I have 4x Verdik Q10 (EL84) mono amps,that get a regular airing.These date from the late 50's.The speakers are Apogee Duetta's,just young'uns from the early 90's.Vinyl is via a Pioneer pl-630 ('79 I believe)with a Technics EPC 207c cartridge (1980 ish).My other decks are Thorens TD150 & TD160.Behind the settee are a pair of ESL 57'S which need a run out,not used since the Apogees arrived and under a chair is my '401 ,10 years and not started on fettling yet,maybe one day.
    Nothin' I do don't seem to work ,it only seems to make matters worse!.

    My Garrard 301 was made in 64. Mine has been well taken care of so still going strong.

    Linn LP12 with Ittok LVII arm which, going by serial number, dates from 1984.

    This currently has a Kiseki Blue Gold Spot mc cartridge from 1988 mounted - retipped by Dominic at NorthWest Analog a couple of years ago.

    The "why" is simply answered: The above combination does a good job and delivers excellent sound.


    I have no doubt there are better turntable/tonearm/cartridge combinations available but I doubt the Mrs will let me hock her and the house to pay for that upgrade ;-)

    The fluff on my stylus is older than some of the gear mentioned here.

    After I sold my Dual 1019, my oldest component is now my Technics SP10 mk2 (made in 1985 according to the QA stamp on the motor).
