    I'm not sure how many people actually read this thread anymore, but I'm beyond ecstatic with how this unit performs.

    I'm eating dinner more in the dining room so I can jam out to tunes with it than I ever did before.....

    I'm very happy with Volumio for access on my laptop (lets me use Spotify and my NAS), but balena is a bit easier to use since it shows as a Spotify connect option (but limited to just Spotify)....

    Looks cool Dan. Glad you’re happy. Hope you’re not eating dinner in there all by your lonesome!!!

    Nope.... tonight it was my youngest and me jamming out. My wife and oldest were out running errands....

    You're gonna need select albums you use exclusively on that TT. Those old TTs of that vintage are really hard on vinyl. You don't want to foul up your good albums with a 3 gram tone arm and a crude stylus. Or needle as they were called back in the day. As a test of my opinion, go to a garage sale and find a well played copy of herb alpert and the tj brass from a console and take it home and play it with a quality TT and stylus. Then spotify the same tune. Haha, the "wonderment of vinyl" has left the room.

    Yeah, I'm cool with it faking that its playing a LP since it will spin (there is no needle on the arm anyway), but the actual music comes from the raspberry pi.

    Spent most of the last few days trying to rewire the tuner....

    Gave up and spent 15 on a digital copy of the Sam’s Photofact for the tuner.....

    Then realized I shoulda just done that to begin with lol.

    It had the tuning string diagram I needed.

    Letting the superglue on the string to dial connection ad hopefully have it back up and running in an hour or so.

    My oldest has already asked for specific songs (she obviously doesn’t understand you don’t pick songs but stations).... but it’s cute none the less.

    I have a raspberry pi that is hooked up to the phono input so I can do that.... just not with the tuner.

    In other news I’ve decided I frigging HATE old tuners....

    I get it working, put it in the console...... wire slips....

    I take it out and get it working.....

    You get the point lol
