Hi, who all have multiple DDs, especially vintage restores, or next to a belt or idler?

Huh? Like multiple TT's, or multiple motors on one?

I have a TT that is direct drive. Interesting factor, it didn't sound good until I plugged it into the my power conditioner.

This is one of the best tables I have ever used, and certainly the best Direct Drive. It's a reborn Vintage Denon Professional DN 308, from PBN AUDIO. Suberbly built (triple lamination of Maple and Aluminum, weighing in at 150 pounds). It has the lowest noise floor of any table that has been in either of our two demo rooms. Unfortunately just about unattainable now as it requires a "donor" Denon 308, and they are few and far between.

I have only one, the Yamaha GT-2000 but it is a keeper. A friend of mine had the big Luxman DD (PD-444 I think), a Denon PL-47 and a refurbished Lenco L-75 (idler, I know). Another friend has the Pioneer PL-7L and a Technics SL-1200 mk2.
