Pioneer PL 510A
I’ll add my Funk Firm LSD with FX3 tonearm to the list...way underrepresented brand!
Rega Planar 3. Just upgraded from Planar 1 what a difference! I've run a Pro-ject Debut Carbon, Technics SL-1300, and have an SL-1301 in my other system but damn the P3 sounds phenomenal.
Update: still using the RP3, but I've returned to using the Nagaoka MP-110. It sounds better now than it did initially, probably because I've added a Rega phono stage and zeroed out the tone controls on my Marantz amp. I'm not sure the Nag is quite the surface noise killer it's cracked up to be, but it's fine.
Linn Sondek LP12 (custom built, just above Majik level)
Ortofon 2M Bronze cartridge
VPI HW19 MKIII
With Graham 1.5 Tonearm.
Now, when will the info in this survey be compiled and results posted?
Elac Miracord 10H
AT LP1240 right now.
Technics SL-1210GR will be here friday!
Had a modified VPI Scout with Shure V15 V-MR, now have a Marantz TT-15S1 with Clearaudio Ebony Virtuoso Cartridge
Just sticking to brands rather than models, in order of how many of them I've got:
I've got the Hitachi HT-21 belt-driven turntable in my possession that belongs to my parents who bought it before I was born. All it needs is to replace the stylus, place the belt, and recalibrate the turntable.
Thorens TD-160 Super
A humble Philips GA-212.
I've been a fan of Technics no drama direct drive tables for decades now. Since the mid-80's, I used one primary table, a quartz locked, linear arm, SL-QL1. I've drooled over many brands and had a few tables over the years to play with, currently having a Denon -DP23f, and Marantz TT-530. Both are direct drive. But just yesterday, my brand new Technics SL-1210GR arrived and I am in vinyl heaven (using an AT450 NE cartridge).
Redone Pioneer pl530
+1... for now. Hoping my Denon DP-60L will be back home during the holidays.
I have two Regas, a Planar 3/Elys 2 and a Planar 6/Exact. Ease of setup was important to me.
Me too. I don't feel so alone, now.
Have a favorite between the two?
Fluance RT85 with an AT540ML cart in a Stanton headshell, and Jake's deer hide turntable mat.
TransRotor Classic Gold for me.
I have a Yamaha YP-D8 with a Shure V-15 Type R, currently not in use.
