I live in a rather odd shaped Loft. I only have one side wall and that's all glass and sliding doors so I can not really effectively use room modifications there. the other side is open to the rest of the living space kitchen etc. I have 18" ceilings front wall that taper down to 16" at the back. my place to compound the issues is L shaped and i'm sitting beside a gas fireplace  in the crook of the L with another 12' behind me on the right side and the fire place next to me on the left. room treatment has been an issues and a compromise as this is the only living space. I will add pictures.

    • Garrard 301

    Grease Bearing Garrard 301,

    I'm the second owner, I bought it off an older gentleman that bought it new and used it only in his personal system. He was a meticulous man and this is very well carried for. Very lucky find. 

    The table is mounted in a multi laired Honey Bamboo ply. Maple, Oak and Padauk were used to ascent the plinth.  

    The Arm Board is solid brass custom machined. 

    after some trial I've settled on Iso Acoustic Orea Bordeaux feet. I tried cones and felt the Iso's were a better match defiantly better isolation.

    I have a couple interconnects from NVA out of the UK that are specifically made with very low capacitance ( NVA amp needed that or they oscillated). I use them from time to time because they are some of the nicest copper interconnects I've tried.  ok I've not tried many but they were cheep I and I already own them ;-)
