Yeah - with my old ears I can only get out to 16-17K. But I still can zero in on things like phasing and dead spots - hot eq's and stuff like that. It's great if you can hear the diff between nylon or steel strings and foot petal work on the piano and so on - but most of the time I'm just chilling and listing to the tunes and not bothered with the stuff that can drive ya nuts if you let it.

yadayada .

translation (to ZMengrish) is something as :

"oh no , Albert ....

you stole even sandals from her ...... "

"her" is Mileva Maric-Einstein

Welllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll right now I am missing one of those turntable thingy's so would need to use sewing needle from wife's kit and a paper cup. The wife would be really pissed about me messing up one of her needles too!!!

I'm playing around with a design for a DIY TT - but typical for me what started out as slapping some old used stuff together to clone something like the Altman TT is turning into a project to clone something more like a $5K TT. And then there is the cartridge and arm stuff. Keeps both of my brain cells happy tho because they get bored playing the mental equivalent of "Pong" (from Atari daze).

Duz anyone know if those oil free plastic bearings are worth a crap for TT's- or should I just stick with the tried and true leaky bronze things???

My set up is not that good at present RPM4 (just piece of chip board with another piece of chip board that spin on a "bearing" with Ac motor
arm is decent enoug but I have revired the thing for balanced with silver vires.
I am using Elitte as MC needle
the rest is all good fun and work in progress.
Got very decent Sallas Simplistic as MC RIIA.

Even with this poor (RPM4) set up difference between black and silver disc is there
.
Why not get same cheap maybe second hand spinner and sart from there.
If jou get the taste for it upgrade way is endless.

I've been keep eyes open for nice old Thorens or Lenco to steal things off of. The big problem is budget. Doing the basic TT is not so much a problem - the tonearm and cart are the problem.

Still - to address the tonearm - there are some pretty decent DIY projects to be had there - including some on here with Nanook's arrow shaft thingy and those would be a good place to begin for a "start".

With me being me I will wind up with something using UFO technology to fashion a linear tracker floating free in space and hooked up directly into audio neurons in nogg'n - but I think I will start out on the traditional paths 1st.

Toss on something like a decent AT or Denon 103 and should come out reasonable enough I think.

Here is a little taste of what I'm thinking - I have about a billion photo's of other people's ideas and projects - to many to list here - I would need a new thread - perhaps a new website!!!
