Default Hello all .... from a turntable nuts

Hello all,





my name is Bernhard Kistner and I am from Munich. I am into DIY turntable and tonearm design and my other DIY ambitions are to provide an appropriate platform for that.


I also am into PP tube amplifiers (preamp and power amp) and open baffle speakers.





What I still am seeking here is a forum about DIY turntables. Does such exist here?





Greets,

Default at least there're kits

http://www.turntable-kits.com/turntable.htm

I built a tonearm using balsawood. I have difficulties with the connectin arm/axle, so haven't tried it yet. Balsa is the strongest wood in the world in respects to weight, and the arm seems really rigid and strong, as well as being lighter than the steel tubed arm I wan't to replace.

Default TT-nut?

hell yes! I've got too many great records from the 50s to now that I simply cannot get rid of my TT. Besides, vinyl is more dynamic than CD, which to me is more musical. I only wish I could afford a new TT. Right now I have an old pioner LP12D. The only mod to it is filled sand in it wherever I could, and use a ringmat. I use a homemade tube phono preamp and a Grado gold pickup.
Not the greatest, but sure holds up to my digital even though I have a decent CDplayer.

Regards, Nick.

Default TT/Vinyl forum ?

Hello all,





is there is some interest in discussion about DIY TT building and design?





If so, c'mon folks, let's enthuse about it and pester Jason a bit to make a new TT-related forum !





I like this particular site's spirit. Maybe I can talk some buddies into stopping by and maybe joining. I have started already doing so

Hi Bernhard,

Yes, you remember correctly. Now I am also considering a 50kg airborne flywheel with a light platter on a conventional bearing. Silk therad driven. This arrangement should have less energy storage and less smearing? Anybody has a cheap, unwanted air bearing? Or, a cheap Maplenoll could be used just for a bearing. Is a shortage of time (and money) only my problem or others have it, too?

I am still waiting for S/N 00002 of LT1. This way I would have some incentive to jump on my turntable. What do you say, Bernhard ? ;-)

Regards,

Tony
