    I have been looking for this table for a secondary system (kinda a man-cave spot) for over a year.
    I finally found a 1 owner table locally - just back from the audio-shop for a complete once-over (cleaning/adjustment) and proper install/alignment of a Shure V 15 Type III I have had waiting for a new home (only 30 hours on the cart).

    It is all vintage gear and it sounds and performs wonderfully. My "new" Harman Kardon T60c -

    Way cool, cat9!

    What are the two components and other TT? WHERE OH WHERE can I get some orange vinyl?

    Thanks sgb!

    Found the equipment in 4 stages -

    Pioneer SA-6800 Stereo Integrated Amplifier (1 owner / excellent shape / had been in storage for over 10 years / came with original manual)

    The same fellow as the amp - the second TT is a Pioneer PL-255 DD deck (same story - excellent shape / I use it as a test table when I get "new" vinyl before cleaning / then to the HK after that!)

    Then I found the cd - nothing fancy but really nice shape and very inexpensive - Yamaha 5 disc changer

    Not in pic - Pioneer S-710 L/R mirror speaker set - flawless condition used 6 months since new....long story!

    Then the HK T60c I just found a few weeks ago

    I'm really fortunate! This system came together with some patience but the components were worth the wait.

    And the orange vinyl I actually use as TT platter covers...keeps off dust, etc. They sell for $30 plus depending on what they are made of. This coloured vinyl was $3 each and I buy it from one of our local record shops - he keeps most of the coloured vinyl that comes in behind the counter for anyone who is looking for coloured lp's for artsy uses or practical uses like mine.

    I keep thinking of replacing it but once I cleaned out the bearing well the table seems quiet to me, I just can't find a reason to replace it. I love all the torque the motor has when using a cleaning brush. I will buy a new turntable in the near future, but I don't need one, I just want one. I also like the fact that it has auto lift and off for when I get summoned to the Queen.

    I wanted to comment on heman's table from part 3 of the thread.

    What color stain is that on the pilnth? I've been looking for a color like that to redo my Slingerland Gene Krupa Drumset.

    Peace,
    Jake

    This is my custom table based on a Roksan Radius 5. I replaced the stock maple veneered MDF plinth with 1" bubinga. The arm and cart are Rega. The phono stage is George Wright.

    Thanks, I really do love this hobby on many levels, but the bottom line is always the music.

    What motor did you use?

    It is the same motor used in Well-Tempered turntables. The whole base is a Well Tempered base. I really don't know the brand of the motor. But it is just a typical little one.

    An Almarro (Japanese) 6C33C single ended amp and a Raphaelite SE 300B (Chinese)
