Re: Turntable nostalgia

Woo Hoo! A thread in the Analog Forum!

I coveted that table when I was a lad. If they were cheaper now, I'd buy one just to sit and watch spin, like Grosse Fatigue does!

Ok, I'll look for some other old "iconic" tables...

Re: Turntable nostalgia

Oh man, you're killing me. I had the next version of that Lux. It was basically the same plinth (such as it is) and arm, but with a more elegant on/off and speed control. That had an extremely high WAF and it actually sounded pretty good with my Platter Matter mat, remember those?

Still, soncially, my Pro-ject RM10/Sumiko Blackbird combination blows the old Lux in the weeds. Hmm, wonder if the Lux could manage the Blackbird. Oh, wish I hadn't given it to the Salvation Army now.

I used to have one of these - Ariston - RD11s

And this was shockingly bad -- but the concept seemed good

Oh, wow, man! That one table's so old it was before the world was in color.

Artsy image of my lo-fi Phillips 212. Currently using Grado cart. GP would love it because it's nice to stare at for hours and hours.
