Sorry for the delayed response but I was unable to connect to diyaudio for 3 days.

You stand correct on the fact that my TT has two motors one for each speed.
The solution is pretty lame and I really dont think anyone would keep switching motors back and forth during a normal listening session. In fact, Pro-Ject has what they call a "speed-box" which is, well, a quart-locked frequency power supply so you can change speeds with the flick of a button.

Still, I have my mind set on building my own unit. I want to design a flexible top-quality device that will be on par with units like VPI's SDS or Walker Precision Driver (and at a fraction of the price). I think that there is room for improvement on this type of devices and I have one or two ideas that I havent seen yet on any of the available designs. I am convinced that such a device would benefit many other people that have AC motor driven TTs.

Your suggestion on bypassing the suspension makes a lot of sense to me and I'll be sure to try it. Thanks. Your comments are wellcome, I know the Project is not the best in the world and usually you get what you pay for.

Best Regards,

Seems you've been worse of then the rest of us.

TT:sure give it a shot.
I'm very interested.

Regarding running a lightweigt TT at 78 RPM,I hold my breath.
Me,I'ld rather use a TT especially designed for that +special 78RPM cartridge and don't forget EQ wasn't all that standardized in those days either.
Tricky busines.

Good luck building and you know where to find us,don't you.
