If I lived in New York...

Hey,

Does Stephen have a turntable?

I saw someone post about this at another site:

Well Tempered table, arm, and unknown cartridge.

For those moneys, it seems a local pick up would make for the start of a lovely relationship.

Anybody recognize the cartridge?

I would never let the guy try shipping unless he hand delivered it to an audiophile to get it packed right.

I saw this and got a case of the "me wants."

The inclusion of the Seismic Sink is a total bonus, too!

Added as an edit:

It also would make for a great entre into the Tweak Zone and Upgrade City!

Re: If I lived in New York...

Awww, the guy who wants to know if the "needle" is included is going to get this one.

I hope the seller understands a bit more about how to pack a table for shipment than he lets on. Particularly the Well Tempered arm and platter. I assume both have been completely cleaned of silicon fluid but just labelling
which end is up isn't going to assure you have a working unit when it arrives. The Well Tempered Arm has no solid bearings and will end up floating around in the package if it's placed in the back of the average UPS truck. The "needle" might be included but you'll have to find it somewhere other than on the cantilever on the cartridge. And I don't want to think what a floating, bouncing platter will do to the rest of the table.

If it doesn't get picked up and has to be shipped, I foresee negative feedback due to poor packing...

I'm sad to say:
No.

That is:
Not yet. (Winkety wink.)

If it stays cheap enough, this would be a good starter rig, too.

SOTA, SME, Van Den Hul

However, it's a zero feedback seller, so caution is word one. We'd need an audiophile in Nebraska to check and see if it's for real.

Re: If I lived in New York...

To me, it looks fairly legit. Too many short statements with !!!!!!!!!.

But if he's kinda person who plays with high end gears, so he should know that EBay is a big No-No for TTs. He should also be aware that Agon is the best place to sell used TTs. I've never seen that on Analo'Gon, and I virtually camp out there. He might just be trying to get higher than what he wants to offer on Analo'Gon.

I would definetely stay like $20 hookers on the E. Colfax.
[edit]..............and that auction was closed more than a week ago. I'm a newbie.
