Default The dark side!!

Hi Folks
I've been building this for a friend and it's very interesting:
  • Base and plinth-birch ply
  • Inner platter and bearing- Origin Live Ultra
  • Motor- Premotec DC
  • Motor Control- Transcriptors
  • Platter- from an original Project RPM 6
  • Arm- pillar and horizontal bearings from an SME 3009
  • Rest of arm= ABEC 9 bearings/thin alu tube-12"
  • Record- John Coltrane- Lush life: sublime!
  • RESULT: SUPERB!!
  • Watch outv for my latest unipivot- the Stealth Mk3 12"-pictures at the weekend
Regards
Chris

Looks very well put together.

Out of curiosity what is that cartridge? Looks just a little out of place with all of the very fancy kit on that table.

Default Cartridge

Hi
It's a Pickering XSV3000-one of the best mm's I've ever used.
