So What Kind Of Vinyl "RIG" Do You Have?

Postby Jimbo » Wed Feb 18, 2004 3:15 am

As far as I can tell, we have all talked about playing vinyl, but I was curious what you are playing it on.

Turntable
Cartridge
Pre Amp
Power Amp

Please, no "your stuff sucks" comments.
If I want to see an rec.audio.tech flamewar I can go to rec.audio.tech. :)

I guess I should start.
This is what I'm in the process of putting togeather...

Turntable: Rega P-3
Cartridge: Rega Super Elys
Pre-Amp: Bottle head "Seduction" kit

SL-1200 Mark 2 along with a lower end Direct drive technics model which I actually preferred when mixing on to my four track. Made a lot of "synth pop" mixes with both. Cartridge and needles were usually whatever I could find a the moment, I used to g

I'm afraid I'm with Ollie on this... I've got a pretty pathetic 'set-up'. The same Sanyo turntable I've had since 1984. God only knows what kind of cartridge it is. The cheapest one my local electronics store had, I guess. I have a Yamaha receiver/amp

Turntable = Technics SL-1200MK2
Cartridge = Stanton 680EL
Pre-Amp = ATUS AM100 Pre-Amp/Mixer (this cheap little unit used to sell at Radio Shack for $49, but is a surprisingly clean as a pre-amp)
Amp = Creative Live! Platinum 5.1 (yeah, it's my PC soun

Back in my active Vinyl & CD to Cassette @home mixing days (1985-2000) my highend/ lowend hodgepodge setup consisted of:

(1) Thorens TD166 MkII Semi-automatic w/Grado ZF3E+ 1/2" mount cartridge (great 4 transfers, very aesthetic in appearance)
(1) Tec

Jeez, my emagic USB 6/2 with an old Pioneer turntable (Quartz PLL! whatever that means) going into Logic and Reason seems pretty puny. Here's what I really want, any experience with stuff like this...

Hey Myirwin,
Given that item's price tag why don't you spring for Steve Martin's 'Google Phonic' system and turntable with the 'Moonrock' needle? [:D]

LOL [:D]
Hope my 1st post wasn't too pretentious[;)]

You are right Ollie, I thought you and some of the others here would have had something the size and expense of a small car! I thought I was being too cheap on my set-up, so I'm glad too see some others making good use of a system that does not cost mega-
