This is my Collins that I put together a few years back.  I just recapped this Victor TT-81

Then there's the Technics SP-10 MkII

Technics SP-15
Broadcast table from a radio station in Alaska.
Using the ATP-12 tonearm that came ith it.....Denon 103R for a cart.

I built the plinthe in 2 pieces because of the weight, theres 3 pieces of slate on the
top and 2 pieces on the bottom platform.....guessing well over 200lbs.

Theres a highly modded Jolida JD-9 sandwiched beteen the slate.

Harman Kardon T55C



I bought the Harman Kardon T55C in 1985 for $365.00. The turntable has the full Van Alstine mod package including the outboard power supply.

The Microtrace Tone Arm by ITO has an electronic arm lift at the end of the record, a real nice touch.

The Goldring 1042 cartridge is a perfect match, the arm has been raised to the max to align the Gyger S profile line contact stylus.

The phono pre-amp is the classic Jim Hagerman Cornet2 with Mundorf SIO, Sonicap, and Russian FT-3 Teflon, 0.1uf bypass caps.

I've always liked the clean line of those Thorens tables.  Very nice.   :thumb:
