It’s awful, but it’s mine :’)
You probably don't really wanna see, there are some pretty exotic setups around here
The "Picture of your Turntable(s)" thread, Pt. 4
Way back in my broke high school / college days, I had a Pioneer PL-12 with a Stanton 681 circa 1972. Did the trick for a while. Please update your profile to include your equipment!
Make me feel shame as a broke college kid!
You're doin' just fine. There are still Boston fans in college?
Here is mine.
Here's my forty-year-old JVC JL-A20. I got maybe $75 in it, including cart and it plays very nicely. Vintage is the way to go if you're on a budget.
Beat up the college kid much? JK. Lol.
The tube TV rocks! Keep spinning!
Wait how did you know it was a Boston record? Did I mention it somewhere? :T
Gotta game on something brother! Vintage gaming is the way to go!!
Yeah, but when I was younger, I didn't have S***.
I just have a couple old Micro Seiki tables, nothing too exotic, but both solid performers ...
Oh yeah! Good eye!
Technics SL 1200 Mk2 & Marantz 2225,
Very impressive, excellent observation.
Now what album am I playing in my pic above?
Is that a Loftwing Amiibo next to the old school TV?
Yes it is. I’m a gamer of all ages and decades, especially for Nintendo. I have an:
NES, SNES, N64, GameCube. Wii U, and Nintendo switch, all with original hardware
Hey, if it makes ya feel good, who cares what anyone else has got? My kid's apartment has a humble nearfield pc audio setup paired with a fairly entry level turntable as well these days and it actually sounds quite good....The key is resorting to "nearfield" listening/setups when you're budget constrained. It is the farfield listening/setups that guys have around here, which can get expensive if you want it to sound good.
Looks like you have anti-skate and tracking-force adjustments on the turntable.
You, sir, are a scholar and a gentleman. I’m a fellow Nintendo nut. The fact you have all those awesome systems means you can do whatever you want with a turntable setup.
Maybe, if I didn’t have just as many records and CDs to buy! I’m fortunate my job pays as well as it does, but I still can’t afford the setup I want lol
