When it comes to turntables, generally the higher end you go the less features it has. The best turntables are usually just a needle on a string and you have to spin the record on your finger Wink

wow, did not know that. seems so rudimentary for such a high end piece of equipment...


Probably because the higher up you go, the less parts are used to ensure shorter signal path and less that can "go wrong" essentially....



makes enough sense


A friend of mine has a really expensive record player that can't play 45RPM records, he basically has to take the whole thing apart to play them. Ridiculous.
I use Slipmats, no problem with static, since I use an antistatic tincture to clean my records, but sometimes records start to drone out and I have to remove the Slipmat.

There's a 33 vs 45 switch that you can buy for most TT.

Is it a separate pulley he has to put the belt onto, in order to change the gear ratio?

Some of the anti-static mats are just okay. Felt mats are bottom barrel and should be killed. Cork is a nice change for the moment. I've noticed that the typical rubber mats can leave a circular residue on the vinyl.

Pro - One came free with a NWN die-hard.
Con - It doesn't work as a pillow case.

On the subject of slipmats, where can I get some made? I can't really find anything good online...
