Did you guys see this?

Clearly, the man loves his acrylic a bit too much, but he's pretty good!

Great fun and most are quite pretty.

I wonder how well they work?

Whoa, that guy rocks! Sure you might argue about the look, but most "big boy" VPI 'table use all acrylic too, just solid black. Very nice work though. I just made newer version of my Well-Tempered turntable (for a number of reasons) and I can tell you it's a lot of work. Fun and educational though.

Re: DiY TTs

As requested, I posted some of my Well-Tempered mods on the DIY section of the Stereophile Galleries page. Pictures include a platter mod, the new plinth I made, and the WTT arm I re-wired last year with Cardas tone-arm wire. Enjoy, and feel free to ask questions if you want.

Your WTT is a BEAUTY! So nice looking. Bet it sounds as good as it looks... I always get envious of people who are so good at DiY projects.

Re: DiY TTs

Thanks Man! I have to admit, it's pretty satisfying to be able to say "I made that!" Check out my DIY Pro-Ac Response 2.5s on the Home Audio systems pages- I think maybe the third page down. I also built the stereo cabinet the system resides in. I have a background in furniture design and a degree in industrial design, which is how I got into all this...

That's pretty intense, dbowker. You're really talented! Maybe a couple years later, I might beg you to make me a plinth for something like a Garrard 301... for a fee, of course.
