At long-last i have sent my EMT to Deutsche Studiotechnik fora full refurb
@lohanimal Excellent, the pursuit of new experiences has prevailed, it will be good to receive your report following the assessments undertaken of it in use.
In the time between the initial post and the new reveal, have you acquired any other TT/TT's to evaluate the refurbed EMT 950 against.
I've been exceptionally naughty:
Townshend Elite Rock (now heavily modified
JVC QL10 (2 in fact because one got trashed by USELESS PARCEL SERVICES)
Sony TTS 8000
Thing is the EMT restoration creates a tweak free toy. You can fiddle with all the others - let's face it us nerds are inveterate tinkerers who love to play with our toys
I spoke to Benjamin who now holds the reins at Dutsch Studiotechnik and he said he'd do a mini interview with me.He is very insistent on keeping the original EMT chain ie - TSD 15 - 929 arm - the in-built phono stage.
@dkarmeli whose opinion I highly value very much concurs with the EMT chain save the phono stage - I am led to believe that quite a few people aren't huge fans on the inbuilt phono stage. I'm going to ask for two options:
1. the option to plug in my own phono cable in order to bypass the stage
2. changing the Leno plugs to standard balanced plugs.
I must say i am dreading how much this is gonna cost me. In fact I think I am going to sell my spare QL10
