I am doing Teres on a budget. Here's the breakdown:
$1400 Motor, Acrylic platter, bearing, etc.
$250 Modded RB300
$250 K&K Step-up tranny
$241 Denon 103r
I went with the acrylic platter to save some $. I plan on building my own in the long run. It will have the 340 sub-base, so I think it will end up being a combo 245/340. I am going to lead fill the base. Also, Chris made me a tape belt, no knots.
I waffled on what woods to use, but now I have it all and here's how it will go:
Cocobolo for the base, with some inlaid Macassar ebony. Solid ebony armboard. Brazilian Rosewood sub base. Ebony veneer around the base, because I don't want to look at end grain. Oh, I forgot the Audiopoints that both the plinth and base will sit on. Got em for $90 here, today!
Considering a base 245 kit is $2200, I think I am going to be very happy, having an entire table setup for the cost of an assembled 245 bare.
I finally have my site up where I will detail the build process. Nothing there yet, but keep an eye out this week! Hopefully I'll be up and running for Christmas.Joe's Teres Project
