That's a great table. I used to have one and a linn lp12 at the same time. It's in the same league. I used a grace arm and cartridge at the time...

How to get power to my RD11 ?
I have an Ariston RD11, which I haven't used in 10 years. The power supply was via a two pin flat plug inserted into the back of my old Rotel amp - now in the tip. My new amp doesn't have a socket. I'm ready to re-explore my vinyl collection, so how do I get power to my deck?
Can anybody help ?
I had a RD 80 with a unipivot Magnapan arm.I used a Ortofon MC-20,a Grado Platnum and Sonata with great rsults.Depends on what arm you have on it I guess as far as what cartridge to use.It had a nice smooth,easy sound to it.I replaced it with a Rega P-25 but I still think of the RD-80.I loved the looks and feel of it.It had a very nice,almost soft cover on it.I was pretty easy to set up too.The arm was a bit confusing at first.Funky arm for sure that Magnepan.
Be careful-Ariston made a couple of tables with the same number-the 11s was 'their' LP12-a superb table, as the other accolades attest-but the 11e was a budget table-does the one you're looking at have any auto features-auto-left, speed switching, etc.? If so, walk away-and frankly, the company is no longer in business-they were very popular (My friend has my old RD-40 spinning away) so I bet there is a nice number of people who would help you to locate parts.
