    When I see record weights the only thing I can really think is I can make my own... I've been enjoying records without one forever... so it's not going to be a big deal if I don't make the best ever. IMO most lack a fundamental thing I plan to implement however.

    There are quite a few TT owners who swear by this, though the Dalby is considered even better. Never heard either. Saw a guy on Audionirvana that uses both (Siddh). It does come at an used priced of 1.5kish though.

    I like/love my Durand record weight. have used it for 5 years on every record. it's made of hardwood, 'un-obtainium' metal, round sapphire feet, with a fitted to the spindle Teflon collar.

    Bonzo, how did it do on the very warped 45rpm pressing of 'In My Time Of Dying'?

    I have only tried a few others, but I did have the Rockport vacuum hold down to compare it to......and preferred the Durand on the NVS to that.

    Mike, without comparing, I can't say. But so far I do think nothing can beat Mooks, except that a couple of people including Mik favour the Dalby (they love both).
