Suggestions for an SUT for Ortofon vintage MCs?
Wow, that's an excellent price on that Denon AU-340! I use one for my Denon DL-103 carts and love it. Those high end Tamuri transformers can't be purchased bare at that price.   BillWojo  
Suggestions for an SUT for Ortofon vintage MCs?
Tell us what the output voltages and the impedance's of the carts are so we can make some suggestions.   BillWojo

For vintage DD tables I look no further that Victor, better known to most as JVC. My TT71 motor drive unit is a beautifully crafted and precise operating DD table that uses a DC motor. It's a 12 pole, 24 slot DC brushless motor with a frequency d...

@dover , you always make this claim about DD tables. Please provide your documentation to back up these claims. You do know that "jitter" is something that happens at a fairly high rate. I'm sure a steady test tone would reveal this pretty easy, a...

"If you want to buy a direct drive turntable you might as well buy a digital front end - its the same sound."   That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard! Just because a TT maintains perfect speed as the better DD tables are prone to due ...

Do yourself a favor and look at the Denon DL-103 carts, your gonna need a step up transformer like a used Denon AU-320 to use it with a MM phono stage. Like speakers, carts are transducers. Those DL-103 just make music! Lots of good vintage DD un... 
Duelund cast Pio Hybrid Copper/Silver or Rs series with Silver Bypass PIO
Wow, I figured if any forum had folks that might have used some vintage WE capacitors, this would have been it. I'm curious as to how they compare to the high dollar caps.   BillWojo

I've added some photo's to my profile of my custom armboards for my Victor CL-2P plinth. They use a quick change insert, remove (6) 10-32 screws and the arm comes out with the insert as a complete assembly. Maybe this can give someone ideas..... ...

@lohanimal , I'm curious to hear about your custom plinth for the TT101 that your building. I'm using a TT71 in an original Victor CL-2P plinth with custom aluminum quick change arm boards. Tonearms are either a Victor UA-7045, UA-7082 or an Audio... 
Duelund cast Pio Hybrid Copper/Silver or Rs series with Silver Bypass PIO
For speaker crossovers, where does the original Western Electric 8 uf, 500VDC oil filled caps fit in with regards to the sound when used on an Altec crossover compared to these newer offerings? I have several of these sitting on a shelf, they are ... 
Added an SUT...not sure I understood this
@perkri  "The reason the hum goes away when the SUT is added is because the DC in the signal isn’t passing through the transformer."   Please explain where DC would come from. The signal entering the SUT is generated by the cartridge and is a A...

Sounds like something is wrong with your AU-320. There is a strong probability that the switches are in a need of cleaning, not an easy job. https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/the-mighty-denon-au-320-s-u-t-modification.925975/ ...
