    Remember -- it's 5 o'clock somewhere.

    I got one of these a while back, but it’s more for larger dust and debris. Works fine for me.

    But I have seen that one on there too
    Just have a new Cart and am pretty good about cleaning my vinyl so didn’t think I needed it.

    You and me both bro. Started with Nirvana, then to Pink Floyd. Finishing up the evening with a little YO Yo Ma doing Bach. Good stuff.

    Is that a SL-1200? Drool.
    Enjoy!
    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    Main setup:
    Speakers are one of three, Mission Freedom 770 IV’s, Polk LSi25’s, or Polk SDA-CRS (stock XO, SL2000’s, Blade/Blade model). Electronics are as follows: for the LSi’s and SDA’s, a Technics SU-v75 acting as a phono preamp, into a Yamaha RX-v665, into a Crown XLi800 power amplifier. For the Missions, I have a Lafayette LR-1100. Turntable is a Technics SL-3200, with a Shure M97xE. Cables are generic/soon to be replaced garbage.

    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Yes. SL-1200 Mk2. I have two of them ;)

    I think it is. If so, I have the same turntable with the same cartridges. :p

    That’s awesome. What kind of cart is that? Looks a bit like the Ortofon somethin’ or other, can’t remember the specific model. The long and thin cartridge.

    Micah I've had these two turntables for 18 years, never been serviced. They still work exactly the same as the day I bought them for $500 each.

    Don't make them like they used to.

    Before I got laid off, I was thinking about upgrading the cartridge to this: https://www.turntablelab.com/products/audio-technica-vm540ml-cartridge-mounted-on-at-hs10bk-headshell-vm540ml-h

    I've only ever owned these Ortofon Night Club E carts, and Shure White Label carts. They both sounded really good to me, so I'm of course skeptical that a pricier cartridge could sound even better.

    I'm scared to go down the cartridge rabbit hole haha :)

    I know what you mean, cause my Shure sounds mighty fine to me, but how much better does it get? I eventually want to get myself an Ortofon 2M Blue, to see if it makes much a difference. But I unfortunately have a lot of things to upgrade before my cart, so it’ll have to wait.

    If you were to try something new, I suggest looking at the nagaoka mp110 like I have. Hard to beat for the money and reviews put it close to that 540 for 1/3 the price.

    My grandpa found this at his friends house, who didn’t want it, so he gave it to me. Sony STR-D715. 2 channel integrated, which seems to have surround and center channels just for marketing reasons, as there are no specs or anything for anything but the main channels.100 WPC @ 0.3% THD. So the speakers are quiet. But the receiver hums rather loudly, making up for the THD almost from the Technics. :wink:
    Either way, it actually sounds quite nice, and I think it’ll stick around a while.

    I’ve had that for 2 years now. Built it myself, it was a kit but I didn’t use the instructions. :smile: I’m a bit of a Star Wars nerd, and I enjoy building LEGOs. But I don’t buy LEGO anymore, unless there is something I really want (like the Millenium Falcon.)
    I am thinking about getting the new Apollo rocket set, but I probably won’t get it, because I could use that money for things audio.
