Source for info on TT setup?
« on: 19 May 2003, 04:21 pm »
If I take the plunge....what is a good source for info on table setup. I mean I know nothing about cartridge alignment etc.

My first audiophile purchase (when I was 15) was a Thorens TD165, but the dealer installed the cart. (a Shure V15)

I wished I'd gotten in on Josh's Rega offer, but think I may go w/ a Sota Sapphire I found used. Maybe just nostalgia....but the best system I ever heard was running a Sota. (rest of system was all CJ Premier amps powering a speaker called Essence....a bunch of varying size boxes stacked together.....it was just stunning. I've never seen that speaker anywhere since.)

Audio Asylum, click on FAQ and look into the turntable set up articles.  These will probably give you more information than you ever wanted.

Hey, that was MY first audiophile TT!! I remember the cartridge (series III) costing $50 (and now even the trade-in stylus has gone up to $50).
