HI!

This CVS16 also works great! I am very satisfied with it. It's a modified
version of the famous Technics 1210MKII with direct drive and variable
speed.

Emne: Re: [ARSCLIST] Turntable 78s

Hi Cheryl:

For doing professional transfers of 78s, I use my KAB-modified Technics
1200mkIV. But I also own one of these, and it's pretty darn close to the
Technics performance, with some mods:
http://www.stantondj.com/stanton-turntables/t92usb.html

The first mod I recommend is get a heavy turntable mat. I bought a Technics
before they became unavailable. There are other options out there.

You also might need to fiddle with headshell added weight and the somewhat
cheapo counterweight on the other end of the tonearm to get all 78's to
track well. The idea is, add weight on both ends to get more total mass. You
can also expect to fiddle with the inexact anti-skate adjustment for optimal
results in some situations.

I suppose a good tech could open one of these things up and do better wiring
down the tonearm and out to the RCA jacks, but I'd sure want to hear before
and after and there to be a clearly-audible difference before I'd say that's
"necessary." The thing seems to put out about the same quality sound and
noise floor as a stock Technics. I don't recommend the built-in USB
converter. It's junk. 
The built-in phono preamp is also not good sounding, but it'll do in a
pinch.

As for cartridges, I'm sure you know all about different needles and the
guys in England that make them. The Shure M78 is OK, the Grado for 78's is
probably better. There's now an Ortofon MM for 78's. I have an old Stanton
500 with a KAB-supplied set of needles from the guys in England. I also have
a stock M78 to play non-critical or badly worn records.

If you're just wanting to enjoy listening to the shellacs in your shelves, I
think the Stanton turntable is a good reasonably-priced choice. I think the
more critical difference as far as clearly audible will be your choice of
cartridges and then using the right stylus for each record.
