Those old Kenwoods certainly have a following.   Have you thought about changing out the electrolytics?  I found that it wasn't terribly tough to do on my Victor.

I’m not sure that I’m capable

You guys are killing me.

Harman Kardon T55C with Van Alstine outboard power supply mod, cartridge is a Goldring 1042



Had a T25 with that AVA mod back in my vinyl days. Good machines.

Don't you audio crazies know that vinyl is dead? This is how mine started.

Technics SP-15 broadcast table from a radio station in Alaska.
The ATP12 arm came with it.....its on till I finish my linear tracker,
(thats why theres so much table for the arm board)

Double plinth so I can move it....3 layers of 1" slate on top plinth,
2 layers on the bottom....Ill guess easily 200lbs total.
Paduack wood sides stained cherry........I really enjoyed building
and using this table.

I said I was ashamed  :o I guess I have no shame  :lol:





Kenwood KD-770D  Cartridge: AT-OC9ML/II

 Hey!

   Don't know why you were ashamed. That's a nice table there.

Here's what my main system looks like these days





The table on the left is the Opera LP-5 with the Dynavector 507 MkII tonearm. This table is set up to use MC carts.


   Man! Now that's an ultimate "Audio Man Cave" Look like there's a blue light special going there.




my living room setup.

   Love that Mid-Century look.


I do enjoy vinyl.

    Damn! For a sheer volume, dynamic and scale hard to beat those speaker there. I'm sure those vinyls make great sound diffuser.

    Anyway, some great TTs and systems here guys!

I finished the new 'table project. Technics SP-10 MK II with a cast iron plinth, Pete Riggle 12.2" Woody tonearm and a "The Vessel" R3SM cart. This sits on top of a 3" thick granite surface plate, which is atop a concrete filled stand. I figure the whole stack is about 450lbs. I am overjoyed with the results. I am still undecided on repainting the plinth, it's an old base from a "Tallysurf 4" surface roughness measuring instrument and I rather like the industrial look. The cast iron was inspired by the OMA cast iron SP-10 plinth they offer and the fact that I inherited the base when a friend passed. I'll never play a record on this without thinking of my old pal.

Nice looking table Mike
I'd paint the plinth, everything else looks so nice it kind of detracts right now (IMHO)

I'd leave it.  I like the industrial look.  Glossy black and cherry red are overdone.

The 1980's Oracle Delphi MKI bought used and I refurbished and updated with MKV suspension with original Pabst DC motor and power supply.

SME Series III arm with Shure Ultra 500 cartridge and original stylus.

Pass Labs Aleph Ono phono stage to bring it all up after many years.

my living room setup.
I love the MCM look, too. I've also restored a Barzilay just like that, with a Thorens and a Devialet Expert Pro 250 inside. Still have work to do to configure the Dev correctly for the turntable.

Would you PM me a few pics of the rest of the room? I don't want to go offtopic. Thanks!

I like the DIY turntable stand.   :thumb:

I did something similar for my table with butcher block on top of mass-loaded speaker stands, with a few of these pads between the two:

Yep that's an old picture.  I now use the same anti-vibration pads.  Looking to get another box to better isolate the top plate  :thumb:
