Plinth ideas for DENON PD-80 DD turntable
75 and 80 are essentially the same. Looks exactly the same too except for the switch and knob which you will never use anyways. Just a thought. Other lower models are not worth the effort in my opinion. Og also put out a nice copper mat on it when... 
Plinth ideas for DENON PD-80 DD turntable
The DP80 is a remarkable turntable. I’ve used one in a secondary system for a while. The sound is between the SP10/2 and belt drives. A good overall compromise. The 75 is easier to source. Basically the exact same as the 80 but without the pitch c... 
Plinth ideas for DENON PD-80 DD turntable
Hi fast mick, I also have the DK2300double arm plinth. Too bad it wouldn’t take a 12”. Both the DK300 and the 2300 are really solid and well built. Get the feet changed and take it to the next level! 
Plinth ideas for DENON PD-80 DD turntable
The plinth is solid. Well made but the feet is the weak spot there. Poorly executed. The feet on the DK300 can be upgraded to Stillpoints or equivalent. I was going to do it but it sold before I had the chance to do it. It’s basically a little pla... 
Plinth ideas for DENON PD-80 DD turntable
Chakster. The stock DK300 is a nice plinth. Constrained layer. I had a DP80 with an FR64s on it. Actually sounded great. Sold it last year to a friend who really wanted it badly. Just picked up another DP80 on a stone plinth. Wondering if there ar... 
Ultrasonic cleaning with kirmuss and loss of high frequency details.
Bose NC headphones cancelled everything out. Nice and quiet cleaning session.  
Plinth ideas for DENON PD-80 DD turntable
Just bought a Denon DP80 and it came with a stone plinth. Cut out and mounting holes look like it’s made for DP80. It’s definitly vintage and most likely aftermarket made for Denon. Wondering what plinth it might be. 
Ultrasonic cleaning with kirmuss and loss of high frequency details.
I use Bose noise cancelling headphones when I do cleaning. The vac machine and the US machine are both very irritating and noisy 
Ultrasonic cleaning with kirmuss and loss of high frequency details.
I have the same machine. I don’t do what they do. All I do (for brand new or never cleaned records) is to manual wash and vac with a traditional machine then throw it in for a 5 min cycle. Then rinse clean and vac dry. Works well and it unlocks an... 
Ypsilon Phaeton + Marten Coltrane Tenor = which DAC?
The Ypsilon DAC1000 just started shipping. Received mine a couple days ago and in the process breaking it in 
FR66s vs Ikeda IT-407 CR tonearms
Yes, the Dennesen sound track tor is probably the best tool to set up your FR64 and 66 series tonearms besides his uni/smart tracktors. This was confirmed by Dertonarm before he made the Uni or smart tractors. He also told me that there are many f... 
Oracle Delphi mk3 is it worth it
Make sure it’s an original mk3. There are many that have been partially upgraded and claimed to be a mk3. The mk3 is the turning point with new suspension towers. I have seen some mk2 retrofitted with new towers and usually a botched up job by ora... 
Best vintage DD turntables from the 70's and 80's?
@chakster Yes I have a Micro Seiki cu180 on mine and centering works properly. The Micro Seiki CU180 does wonders to the sound. I had custom wooden armboards made for the table. Had a Fidelity Research FR66s and a Dynavector 507/2 on it. Served me... 
Best vintage DD turntables from the 70's and 80's?
Yes it’s the top of the line. Yes self cantering. I am the original owner. Long story...bought it new old stock. A TechDas replaced it and it really made me realize how good the Nak was. I replaced it under the impression that it would be a big up... 
Best vintage DD turntables from the 70's and 80's?
Not many lucky enough to actually see a TX1000 in action. I had mine for approx 13years. It’s one of the best tables around. Stacks up to many Uber high end tables. Finally replaced it last year. Debating if I should sell it or keep it.
