  1. I've not long sold mine but iirc the arm is a sme type mount. Also the tonearm cable is soldered to the phono sockets at the back of the plinth so you'd need to disconnect these. It's a pretty good arm that can take a range of cart weights, you can get a heavier counterweight from Henley designs if needed. There is also a guy on ebay, can't remember who, but he machines an underslung counterweight for the 10cc arm. I was sceptical, but it did improve the sound. I rotated an ortofon rondo bronze, an audio technica at 33ptg and an audio technica 150mlx and found all 3 to match superbly. Dave
  2. Wanted -

    Hi Condo, you have pm Dave
  3. Hi guys, As the title really. I have an option of either a second hand red with 100 hours or a brand new 33. they would be mounted on an audiomods classic running through a graham slee reflex c into tannoy 6.2's. Music would be mainly rock or blues/jazz. just after a few opinions as to which would offer the best bang per buck? I've looked at the specs and the 33 seems to have the edge. Cheers, Dave
  4. I've got some 12" aluminium so i'm planning on doing something like the acoustic solid, platter wise. Bearing will be my own design but taking parts of others. Will use opposing magnets to take some of the weight off the bearing axially. Lucky enough to have access to lathes and grinding machines at work.
  5. Hi guys, I'm in the early stages of making my own turntable, I've got hold of a gyro motor and pulley and was wondering if any of you knowledgeable folks knew the exact outside diameter of the gyro platter? I'm assuming it'll be 300mm but want to be sure so I get the correct speed, cheers, Dave
  6. Hiya, I have a pro-ject rpm 10 which has the 10cc arm but basically the same. Set the counterweight so the arm balances level. if you turn it anticlockwise it should move away from the cartridge, if you turn it clockwise it should move towards the cartridge. so with the arm level, place back in the arm rest, hold the counterweight from turning and turn the dial on the counterweight to zero, which should be in line with the top of the arm. then turn the counterweight clockwise (the counterweight should move towards the cartridge) till the dial shows 15 which equals 1.5 grams. do not push or pull the counterweight as its not designed to be. hope that helps, Dave Not sure I got that right now regarding direction of counterweight when turned! but which ever way it goes when you turn it, the counterweight needs to move toward the cartridge, and needs to be turned not pushed. ( I've got an xtc counterweight on right now)
  7. morning guys, thinking about maybe upgrading to the pearl lite from my pm 6004. currently running my vinyl through a graham slee era gold into a line input on the 6004 and was wondering if the phono stage in the lite was on a par or better than the era gold? or should I keep the slee and do the same through the pearl lite? any opinions would be gratefully received, Dave
  8. this may not go down too well but , sod it , been drinkin and listenin, try a project rpm 10, not conventional I know, but with a great cart and phono stage, by Christ it rocks my boat!
  9. Hiya everybody, new to the forum (as you can see) so please be gentle! I've recently upgraded from an rpm 4/at 440mla front end to the rpm 10 with same cart. i mainly listen to blues/soul/rock/zeppelin. was wondering about the upgrade path open to me, cart and amp wise? am currently using marantz cd and pm 6004 which i've got to say is pretty damn good and no pre-amp. the t/t runs off the speedbox II so i'm thinking firstly cart, then pre-amp, any opinions would be great, cheers, Dave
