I'm okay with that. Program time is more of a concern on the 45 rpm side, that's all.

Selecting 45 rpm is a pain on many decks and not possible on a few

78 maybe, a quick check and I could not find any in the current crop of cheap belt drives. I'm curious as to what constitutes a "pain".

On several belt drives you have to lift off the platter and manually move the belt, all while trying not to get skin oil on the belt

With respect to 33/45 RPM and also adjustable speed I am glad that my Linn Axis still is working flawlessly after 28 years of operation.

Is this possible to do while wearing latex gloves? (Or vinyl, or nitride, or cotton?) I bought a box of 100 nitrile gloves at the local warehouse club ("Costco") for a very low price; they're useful when scrubbing solder flux off PCBs using 99% IPA and other naughty organic molecules.

I have found that old steel knitting needles work like a charm to move the belt. I put a heatshrink on the end that I hold and clean the other ends with a little meths occasionaly.


I am not averse to an LP with 33.3 on one side and 45 on t'other, and am quite prepared to fork out a liitlle extra for two seperate LPs. I can always forego a some choclates and ice cream for a while.
