The Technics Wheel Of Steel (sort of alloy actually, but....well you know....)

It's official.

The 1210ii, a ratty one in this case, sounds pretty damn fine fitted with a 5mm Achromat, a Sound Supports Rega arm board, and a Hadcock 242 shoe horned into it with a AT-OC9ML2 in the end.

It's absolutely speed stable and silent as a grave. I'm not making a very good case for owning more expensive spinners here am I.:oops:

I have an SL10 with the EPS 310 mc cartridge. Nice, convenient, good standby.

Anyone know where I can find the right RCA cable or plug? I've bodged something at the moment, but it isn't pretty.

Thanks chaps, I'm really happy with them. The build quality is superb and they sound surprisingly decent, even with affordable MM P mounts.

Pretty easy to work on and service also, which is a bonus... thanks to Setting Son for the pictures etc :-)

Possibly the ultimate in child proof turntables!

How does the RB250 compare to the original arm in your view Tristan?

I suppose I better put some pics up myself!

Hi Rob, The difference with RB250 is dramatic to say the least. Much more open and the top end is very very sweet. Well worth doing if you ask me :)

Next up is getting the PSU out of there.

My "spare" 1210 is up for sale if anyone is interested?

This is my baby courtesy of a speculative Ebay bid (after I'd had a few):-

Nobody else joined in, God knows why, she's a beaut, so I became the proud owner. :oj:

You may notice the AN "badge" over the start/stop button.

Drink may have been involved in this incident too....:whistle:

The arm and cart came later, an Audio Note Arm 2 and IQ3:-

Under the spectacularly red Holly Golightly lies a 5mm Achromat which proved to be a very cost effective upgrade, I felt.

Then there is the external power supply, thanks to Lee (Setting Son) for his help and technical abilities in putting this together:-

As you can see, I've striven for a good aesthetic match with my other AN boxes.

Embarrassingly though the gold knob, (proper AN bling), cost more than the components inside. :oops:

The overall result is fantastic though, not the most refined but punchy, dynamic, exciting.

I really like it.

Cheers

Steve

I'd recommend having a chat with Lee (Setting Son).

He's just down the road in Cas Vegas and has fitted a really nice external power supply to his, (and mine and Darrens).

But will it improve your taste in music :nup:.

Have you got AN underpants to match even more AN bling:D

Knocking em cold in black and gold. :^

P.S. Nothing can improve my taste in music. ;-)
