    We asked Ken to change the thread title. That is all Ken had to do with this. Hopefully when all is said and done Craig @vcwatkins will take the ball since he has done this a time or two already.

    Yep. I double checked and the mods David @westmassguy did for my 1C project (yes the parts are still in the boxes) has the provisions for a Dreadnaught.

    They certainly do. You'll just have to split the Interconnect, or make a 2nd.

    If you get a chance please reach out and see what is what

    Thanks all. please be patient and lets let this go into January and maybe if we can get 20 folks (I think) it helps get our price down.

    ok Brian this below was from the last and IN NO WAY represents current price just a FWIW idea.

    COST at 20 units I believe

    We are currently at:
    Transformer unit cost: $243.19
    USPS insured CONUS shipping: $17.55 (additional charge for int'l)
    Total each: $260.74
    If we get to 25 committed, the total is reduced by $14.24
    I'll need to get a quote directly from Melanie on any shipping outside the 48 states.

    PAYMENT
    Although Avel Lindberg collects 50% up front with 50% due at shipment, I'll need to collect 100% since I'll be on the hook once ordered. I'll pay the total when I place the order.

    Payment is via Paypal gift prior to order being placed. Once confirmations are received, I will send out payment info. Paypal fees, if any, will be buyer’s responsibility. Paypal fees from debit/credit card look to be $7.86 on a $260.74 transaction. Once the funds are collected, I'll place the order and pay in full. It depends on how quickly money comes in of course, but I would hope I can place the order when they reopen on 1/2/17.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    THE ABOVE IS JUST FOR REFERENCE AND IN NO WAY REPRESENTS CURRENT PRICING

    Craig "vcwatkins" IF he decides to take this on will need to get current pricing

    I've requested a quote from Melanie at Avel Lindberg. IIRC, they take the whole week off for the holidays; so it's likely we won't hear back until 2019/1/3ish.

  • Ah screw it I'm in. :D

    This is going even faster than the last one. When you include all of us fence sitters, we are almost at 20 in less than a week!
    So imaging what will happen by January. Nobody thought this could possibly come close to the last one, but it's looking to me like it might be..........................

    Yes! I've had it in the main den rig for 6 years now and enjoy it every day. It has beat everything I've compared it with in the same price range (Krell, McCormack, Pass, Rogue). Love it love it love it. I really owe you for that one!

  • @erniejade I see you also have a Technics SL1200 like I do (2-one in each system). Is it stock or is it modified?

    I only put the oil damper on it. The rest is stock. I had a linn for a bit and it was a PITA and went back to the old 1200. I have had 0 issues with it for the... 20 years i have had it.

    Are you talking about the oil damper for the tonearm? I've seen that mod available online some time ago.
    I've had one of the 1200's for almost 20 years now as well (and I bought it used) These suckers really are tanks that last forever.
