    What turntables do you use? Pictures would be nice as well :-)

    Yes, it was made by me.

    To SUT or not to SUT?

    But as you said before this is not an issue of SUTs in general but of the mismatch of SUT and MC output. Furthermore comprised dynamics is alos not an issue of SUTs but of this special situation and because the phono stage is overdriven. I agree to there´s no SUT that fit´s all also but there´s...

    To SUT or not to SUT?

    Yes. We always want to achieve the (technical) best. That's why you should always first look at this question from a technically correct perspective. The higher the gain, the more noise an amplifier circuit adds to the output signal. At the same time, with high amplification, you also have to...

    I do not own a P-10 but Technics SP-10 MK IIa as well as two SP-15, SONY TTS-8000 and three different models of the Denon ufos and Pioneer PL-70LII but I would describe differences between SP-10 MK IIa or SP-15 and Pioneer PL-70LII quite similar as Joe did it for SP-10 MK3 and P-10. Denon ufos...

    Hi, Joe I think you´re right with saying hard to make a comparision with different carts and tonearms mounted on each turntable. Especially those carbon arm tubes used with EA-10 and it´s version in PL-70LII or PL-50LII do sound tempting but attach a interesting signature to the sound. At the...

    Some years ago I´d the chance to listen one complete afternoon and night to both and to compare directly. Of couse a PS X-9 has the punch of a Garrard but due to the higher accuracy in speed it´s sounding more detailed over all. In return, the bass range is also displayed much better.

    Unfortunately I do not own a P-10 or P-3a but a PL-70LII and a PL-50LII only. The picture shows a Denon DP-6000 in DK-200 plinth paired with a Fidelity Research FR-64s, SUT used in this setup is a Cotter/ Verion MK 1 but I also own a DP-80 as well as a DP-7000. The DP-6000 motor unit is almost...

    Strech slip ist a fact and not homemade physics at all.

    In praise of idlers

    I do not assume that. It´s about strech slip that´s inevitably occuring in any belt driven design and with even new belts or "special made" so called non slipery belts too. I´m simply talking about a technical fact. Please don´t mix up things. Of course it sounds different in your experiment...

    In praise of idlers

    In order to achieve high accuracy in speed you need (high) torque at the motor but the heavier the platter gets the more you will see accuracy getting lower. Reason for this is with strech slip, what you´ll recognize inevitably with any belt drive design and to be at about 2%. The havier the...

    I've put you on my ignore list, so I no longer have to worry about the impertinence, the aggressiveness and the nonsense you spew

    I think you found this in a multiple choice spell knocker book. :D

    In praise of idlers

    I'm glad to hear that you learned at least something. Just screwing an outboard motor to an inflatable boat according to the instructions or being able to calculate the best route between two sandbanks does not make you more than a halfway passable skipper. For complex mechanical designs and...

    You should go to school again. But please don´t talk about things you do not even understand at all.
