Description

Fifty plus years of incremental upgrades and trial and error culminated in this current rig and by the way that it sounds, I think I’m done. Well, definitely maybe.

jrw1971, thanks for your reply and advice—it’s appreciated! The Fat Boy gimbal looks like my next upgrade. Vinyl Rules!

Bill -- Love the rig, and the vinyl.  You asked me a question about swapping in the gimbal arm.  It's pretty easy.  I also did it on my Classic 3.  The half-dollar sized nut under the tonearm assembly plate (if that's the right term) can be a pain to loosen, and you don't want to mar it with plier marks, but you can wrap some duct tape around before using any tools if that's a concern.  VPI also answers their phone, I've learned, and they can be helpful.

John, at least you’ve kept your sense of humor!!
I’m afraid to make a list of old gear, my wife could find it!  :-)

Nice system.
I wish I had kept a list of all the amps, speakers, CDPs, cables and what ever else has passed through these hands in 40+ years. But then again I'd probably get depressed and what I have sold. I'm crying already

I’m fortunate to have retailers nearby where I was able to see and hear my gear and ended up with gratifying sound, even with the headphones. Some high-enders may say move the speakers out, add room treatments or subs but I’m happy with it as is…for now. You know how that is.

Thanks for your comment!
