    It was on the old forum format before it switched over to vanilla, so I don't think it gets indexed in the search results.

    I asked for a cork TT mat for Xmas and got one....man, talk about static. Had to take it off and go back to the stock rubber mat. I hope in the humid summer I can try it again. Anybody else experience this with cork?
    Yep, my name really is Bob

    No, actually (and now that you mention it, and FWIW) -- and it's dry here in the wintertime.

    I have a home brew mat that I like a lot, basically its composed of a very thin cork sheet (a few sheets of paper thick) glued and compressed onto a thin piece of leather, (unfinished side up), not too ugly and works like a charm. A bit finicky to make correctly but worth it.

    Beautiful TT !!! I like what looks to be all metal tonearm assembly.
    So I was reading some of the Japan market Micro Seiki's were designed for only 100v. Some run a AC converter. Have you had any issues? Is your's designed for 100v?

    Bill retired and shut it down. He was a smart guy, approached TT speed control like nobody had before.

    That's an interesting question. The DQ-50 is kind of a rare bird; The Micro Seiki it looks identical to is the DD-8, which *is* a 100V motor, I believe.

    Tonearm is some iteration of their vaunted MA-505. It doesn't have the "on the fly" VTA adjusting that some of the standalone MA-505s do, but I'm happy with it.

    Anyway, mine's fine directly plugged into the wall, so no worries for me.

    I love looking at turntables. I was a HUGE fan of linear tracking, and owned 2 different brands of linear tables. IIRC, Yamaha PX-3 and a Pioneer PL1000?? Both very smooth and very quiet turntables. Wish I still had the PX-3.
