Follow the 30-32VAC Raw PSU schematic guideline in UFSP and it will work fine without RDLINK high value EMI RC filter experiments other than standard 1R avoiding possible need to voltage drop against higher VAC stronger overshooting transformers.

Default looking for your thoughts

I am working my way through the UltraFSP build. It obviously is impacted by your TT and cart. I have to get one cause my really old TT is not of the caliber needed for Salas's stuff. So....
Any thoughts on high quality TT's and cart's would be appreciated. I know just enough that there is a wide variety of equipment and cost. Just like Amps and pre Amps. The problem is there is lots of talk in the diy community about the subjective end of amps and pre's which gives guidance along the way. Not so much with the TT's and cart's. There is no point in having a TT and cart that can't take advantage of Salas's work. So that is the starting point. But, how high is up???

At the present time it is not realistic for me to go on a listening expedition. How do I go about making a decision? How do I know how to determine the value proposition is even if it is not inexpensive. What do you look for in making a decision?

Any thoughts, guidance or direction would be greatly appreciated.
A benchmark for me might be "if you go there you better have z-foils."
Thanks for anything and everything.

Regards,
Don

Hi Don
These are complicated questions...

It not least depends your taste—minimalist, high-tech, vintage?

I‘m sure you can find great gear without spending astronomic sums. A good combination of turntable, arm and cartridge is important.

I often lust for these nice sleek modern minimalist TT‘s like the old Rega Planar 1...

I avoid mainstream products, and dislike pro-ject for reasons unknown to me.

I‘m fascinated of „weird“ designs like the well tempered, or the Thales.

Also, some of the big buggers like pioneer pl-70 catch my eye.

I believe the turntables and arms from „back then“ were really good already (td-125, sl 1200, sl-1000, linn, fidelity research, sme, emt, ...)

Considering the cartridges, it gets complicated. They (or parts of them) age, so you‘ll have to find something fresh. There are plenty! Audio Technica, Ortofon, Benz Micro, Denon, Hana pop up.

I want them all Simplistic NJFET RIAA
I don‘t think this helps much, but this is where I am...

Bottom complete TT choice no less than a Fluance RT85, medium a Technics SL-1200GR with no less than an Audio Technica VM540ML cartridge, from there on you should be more involved in seeking your choices because the sky is the limit. Serious investment territory.

(and hoping to entertain folks a bit):

this is how your reply (#18070) first came to me.
I switched between reading, laughing, reading/thinking (yes!) etc. for a minute or two.

Salas, please don't take it personal. It's just overwhelming and I like it.

(and it's not _that_ bad

Well... you wanted to know what Tx VAC and why. So there you had it.

The Schiit Sol looks like an interesting table, particularly for the DIYer.

BTW, I only have about an hour of listening on the UFSP, don’t have my boutique caps, and have only tried one setting of C2Y (220pf), but even with that little experience I know that this thing is special. If you have the means and the need, building one of these is a no-brainer. I built it with the plan to move to a low output cartridge, but with all the detail the UFSP is pulling at 40db through a 2M bronze I’m almost afraid to hear what this thing could do with an LOMC..

The big A/B between the UFSP and the Valve Itch may happen this weekend. We’ll see.
