The Yamaha GT 2000 does things that I didn't think turntables could do. Ultra Direct Drives are the most overlooked components in the Vintage Roster. 
Scratchy pops coming from the left channel when I turn up the volume why?
Sounds like the name of a new breakfast cereal. 
Why not use an arc'ed lathe?
The idea died like square wheels. 
neen help identifying a Grace phono cartridge. The box has "Prototype No2 written on it?
Photo? 
Why hasn't America discovered the Fertin sound yet
The only place that you don't want to hear Fertin is in an elevator.

I'd love to be able to afford the Avenger Direct. 
All I want is The Truth, just gimme some truth...
gloryI've owned a Truth for a little over 3 and a half years. I actually couldn't tell you how it sounds. My entire system seems to mirror everything that I do to my turntable source. My previous preamp was the Transcendent Sound  Grounded Grid. W... 
Vintage DD turntables. Are we living dangerously?

Why do almost all women today hate home audio?

Axel stated on the 2000x page that the 18Kg platter was optional. The mistake he made was in saying that the increased diameter motor shaft in the x was necessary for the 18Kg platter. It isn't. The 18Kg platter was introduced 3 years before the r...

Yamaha GT 2000 Turntable
Lewm,The GT 2000x came with the same stock platter as the GT 2000. 6.5Kg. The 18Kg platter was an optional extra for BOTH the GT 2000/L and the 2000x. Moment of inertia with the 6.5 Kg stock platter was specified at 1.2 tonnes/cm squared.The fact ... 
Yamaha GT 2000 Turntable
The GT 2000 is relatively(the key word here) inexpensive compared to the other Uber Direct Drive TTs solely due to their plentiful supply on the second-hand market. Yamaha sold many of these turntables in Japan, the only market in which they were ...
