I think this topic has been touched upon before, but if
anyone is looking for a great starter level turntable,
these are great. I have had mine for 3 years with no
problems whatsoever. The platter is nice and heavy,
and the construction is top notch. I have records that
skipped in 7 or 8 places on other turntables, but only once have I ever had one skip on this model, even at a low gram setting.
They are manual and kind of labor
intensive, since you have to change the belt from 45 to 33, but the sound
is great for bands from everything from Black Witchery to
Morbid Angel. I got mine for 350.00 new. I don't work for them or any
online shop that sells them, but you should check these out.


I have one of these Project turntables too. Have had for about 5 years and been nothing but satisfied! And yeah, plays tricky LPs with no trouble at all. Great stuff!


Yeah, I got my Project III this year, and I love it for all of these reasons - I've got old records that I'd hitherto thought were unplayable that now play with almost no pops at all on this mofo!

That's basically my LP-player including a Shure V15-III system. Beautiful German Highend from late 70es when turntables were at there peak and still no fuckin' plastic inside. Just metal.

I would advice anyone to check old second hand players first, before buying a new player. At least for Europe, these kind of Dual players are below 150 Euros (704, 721. 728, 731. CS5000 goes for around 250..300 Euros).

I have some Numark direct drive turntables that I bought around 8 years ago. They've been nothing but outstanding. They were $250 each. I simply found a good deal online; printed it out; took it to Guitar Center, and they matched the prices for me.

I replaced my Dual with a Thorens TD 325 (with a Grado Prestige Red) - it is basically a TD 2001, just the chassis is slightly different...something between a TD320 and 2001...

Looks very similar:

These spikes are something I will buy soon for my TT...

It's a metal-phenomenon that people with HUGE collections most times have extremely old and fucked up turn-tables. That's something I will never understand...


Even worse, I know a few people who "collect" vinyl but don't even own a turntable. Confused

[quote="1349"]Do they sell Project TT in the US?[/quote]

I think thy are made in the Czech Republic, but you can get one from needle doctor.com. They specialize in all things analog. They have stylus
and Cartriges from 30.00 to 1,000 US dollars.
I ordered form Needle Doc and it was packed insane and arrived in about a week. Seriously, from The Who to Blasphemy, they sound great.

The Project turntables are awesome quality for the price. Specialy the entry level ones. Has any one used the RPM 10?

I like the Orbe Millenium as well. But they come with a big price tag!

This is the craziest turntable ive seen around...



Costs something like us$100,000.. weights 350KG and you stil have to buy your own tone arms etc... When you buy one of those, a guy from the company flys over with it to make sure its set up perfectly. You would want to build your whole house around something like that... using your basement etc.. as a big horn for sound to travel through.

^^^killer, would like to hear one of these.

On the other hand, there are really some nice high-end players, that are still, more or less, affordable...

Transrotor...

Yeah if you wanna spend a couple grand you can definetly find a decent high end player. That Transrotor one looks decent... although i can't read German so i dont know what is is saying haha

The $100,000 one is crazy... I don't know how someone can justify paying that much for it though. It would sound amazing but still...
If i was ultra rich and money wasn't an option, i'd stil have one.

The Needle Doctor store/warehouse is about 3 blocks from my work. I bought a new needle there yesterday. Crazy selection of LP stuff!

about gram settings... is it like it would wear out the records quicker if you use a really high gram setting? many of my records skips when it gets to the last few grooves inside so i always use a very high gram setting now. usually how many grams is appropriate?

It really depends on your cartridge. Different models have different recommended settings. Check with the manufacturer of your cartridge.

Too high is actually better than too low of a setting, though.
