bikehappy1's system

Here's my current setup featuring the Torii MKIV and the ZP3. I also have a 2 shelf unit from Gig Harbor Audio in Washington state. It's made from bowling alley wood and mahogany from Boeing engine crates. GHA has some really nice furniture for good prices too. My next upgrade will probably be speakers to replace the KG4's. I just placed an order for some Traps for my lab at work. Cheers!

Is that a 1200MK2 TT? †An "inexpensive" but big upgrade would be to get some isolation under it. †I used Isonoe footers on mine before switching to a 1200G. †Those are great TTs but need a few mods to really shine. † Smiley

No it's an LP120 with a 2M blue cartridge. Yes I think that's a good idea with the isolation feet. I have some herbies underneath my speakers. A year ago I sold my 1970's sony turntable and my sweetie bought me the LP120 and that got me re-started on audio equipment. I found Decware on the internet and the rest is ongoing history.

That LP120 looks a lot like the Technics.  Either way, TTs really benefit from good isolation.

Here's a new pic of the work desktop system. There's a new SE84UFO-25 in the background. Quite the difference from the 200 dollar 15 year old sony receiver!

That speaker system looks so warm and inviting. Wood and tubes, and music. A happy place to be indeed! And much easier than riding a bike, even.
