Turntables

Hi, Just thinking of things to do with my system.

I have thought about getting a diy valve amp kit.Also thinking about trying a diy turntable. Building my own turntable may help me understand how they work and how to setup one correctly. I have seen Audioorigami's floppy drive one but is there any others out there that people have tried or seen.

Just a thought at the moment.

cheers Chezi,

Might be the wrong way of learning about TT's but you got to start somewhere. I will have a google and see what turns up.

I built an origin live kit turntable a few years ago, it was only so-so especially the platter bearing. No where near as good as the gyrodec I replaced it with.

Teres sell TT parts and great looking kits, might be worth a look (not cheap tho).

I'd love to build one as well, but I'm having trouble finding a machinist to make my bearing.

lee buy a fooked rega, you only need bearing, platters and motor, make yer own plinth, I plann/ed on using 36mm birch ply, but plenty materials out there, from perspex to granite, only held back buy your imagination, most crucial part will be to get bearing perpendicular with plinth, a router may be needed for this, other than that, jigsaw, drill and some elbow grease is all you really need, plenty geometry diagrams for arm fitting and such.

If rega clone goes well, then nothing stopping you doing a more esoteric one, such as a schue kit or kit like mentioned above.

I heard the LP12 in anger for the first time at chezi's and it sounded excellent. Very mellow sounding. Seemed to smooth off the rough edges of the sound that the CD player had.

IMO a very good sounding TT.

Just gettin a wee bit bored listening tae the same auld pish , so you don't like an Lp12 so that makes it shit ??? no it fuckin doesn't , loads o things I don't like but don't constantly ram it down folks throats.

Not that it's the onlything you have a dig at , ye seem tae have a habit o gittin on a lot of peeps nerves , ye always have done since posting and being banned fae Zero Gain within days , gies a break FFS,this used to be a informative and helpful forum and a good laugh , I now dread coming near it , sarcasm and self opinion gets annoying.
