    This has probably been done in the past, but I think it is time to do it again. We have a lot of threads about TT's on this forum and I would be very interested in knowing what brands of TT's the members here use. If you want to just post the name of your TT brand that's all you need to do or you can post as much about your TT as you care to. Also if you do not use a TT you can post that too. I think the results will be useful on this forum especially when someone asks advice as to what TT to buy. One can then answer that 66 members here use Brand X and 45 members use Brand Y, etc.

    Every few days I will tabulate the inputs and post an updated list of brands and how may use that brand.

    I will start things off - I use a VPI TT.

    I have a Rega RP3 that I bought with an Exact2 cartridge. I also had an RP3 with the stock Elys2 and also the TTPSU. I took the TTPSU from that and use it with this RP3. I upgraded the sub platter to the Groovetracer Reference Sup Platter, also upgraded the platter to the Groovetracer Delrin platter, and the counterweight to the Groovetracer version. I installed a Rega white belt. I use the Groovetracer record weight. I use VooDoo Cable Iso Pods (four) in place of the stock Rega feet.

    Wow, this is now a great sounding table.
